Less is More: Say ‘I Do” in a Short Little Number


Whether you’re going short for the big day start to finish, planning a simple city hall ceremony, or wanting to change from your gown into something sexy for the reception, short white ensembles are a sure win. From cropped tulle skirts to lace sheaths above the knee, the modern bride is brave and bold enough to opt for something a little sassier than a cathedral-length train. And why shouldn’t she show off those gorgeous stems?

Here’s a round-up of some short looks we fancy:

HELLO, 60s: A bouffant hairstyle adds glam to this Audrey Hepburn-esque tulle ensemble.

PEEP TOE: Maybe completely above the knee is a little riskier than what you’ve imagined. A high-low gown could be just the remedy. Make sure you shop for ultra-special shoes, as the silhouette provides a natural frame for fancy footwear.
