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.
FLIRTY FASHION: From the tulle sleeves to the dreamy sash, sweeps and embellishment, this dress is to die for.
CITY HALL CHIC: The dainty sleeves of this classic sheath are modest yet sexy, especially with all that leg action happening below.
VERY VINTAGE: Doesn’t this fabric allude to another time? Can’t get much more romantic than that.
CUTE & CASUAL: Touseled waves, Wayfarers and three-quarter-length sleeves = home run.
RUFFLED: If you’re looking for something sassy for the reception, go ruffly!
ALL TIED UP: A patterned bow adds interest to this tulle, bell-shaped mini.
PRETTY PARISIAN: We fell head over heels for this French style, which exudes sheer elegance.
SWEET SCALLOPS: A sleek bun and nude pumps add a sophisticated sleekness to this charming courthouse look.
