Choosing the Perfect Short Wedding Dress

Finding the perfect short wedding dress may initially seem overwhelming, especially if you’re wearing it as a second or third look for the evening, but here are a few helpful considerations:

Season: Wearing a short wedding dress is a great addition to summer, late spring, or early fall weddings. Especially for the reception, a short little number will keep you cool as you dance the night away! You’ll run the risk of being chilly if you sport one during winter nuptials.

Location: Consider if you’ll be saying “I do” with a breezy view. Shorter dresses are prone to movement in the wind, so consider a longer skirt for an outdoor ceremony before slipping into a short wedding dress particularly if you’re hosting an indoor reception.

Comfort: Mobility, comfort, and confidence should be at the forefront of your decision on a dress regardless of its length! Dancing the night away? Opt for a short dress that moves and grooves with you while keeping you covered and comfortable. Riding off into the sunset? Select a slinky little number to head out in!

While short dresses are in their renaissance era, there are a few distinct trends that are emerging as we speak: ruffles, textures, detachables, “City Hall” chic, vintage-inspired looks, and so much more! From A-line to fitted silhouettes, there are a variety of short dresses intentionally designed to complement each bridal style and an array of unique preferences.

Nod to your wedding’s theme or formality by intentionally selecting your short wedding dress. Whether it be for functional reasons or solely for aesthetic purposes, short wedding dresses can be adapted to each bride. For instance, these little minis are perfect for beach-side nuptials to help beat the heat while a vintage-inspired wedding calls for a tea-length dress paired with a birdcage veil that pays tribute to your grandmother’s treasured wedding photos. Or, opt for intricate embroidery, texture, or specific design elements to highlight your unique personal style.

Just because the dress is short doesn’t mean your accessories have to be! Complete your look with one (or several!) of Kleinfeld’s hundreds of accessories. From shimmering headpieces and show-stopping veils to jewelry, belts, and shoes, there are countless to choose from.
