“And the best thing about it you can shorten it and wear it again.” Who doesn’t love 27 Dresses, one of Katherine Heigl’s best films! Well, I don’t have 27 dresses, but I have 12! 12 short wedding dresses for you to walk down the aisle in! Wedding dresses will always be traditional and beautiful, but the trends change and grow. Brides these days are spoilt for choice when it comes which dress to walk down the aisle in. It’s so exciting. Sometimes the ‘chosen’ wedding dress is the least expected. Long, short, glittery, plain, white, colourful, new or vintage. There’s a wedding dress for every bride out there. So check out these 12 short wedding dresses. There might be one for you! Happy aisle walking!

1. Party At The Back

Obviously a short wedding dress means a short hem. How short you prefer the hem depends on the dress. BUT, add a long veil or train at the back and you’ve got a whole new story. This can even be achieved by having a separate attachment! A simple top above and skirt with a hem line at the front that becomes longer at the back (that still counts as short right?) You could even go for a short skirt beneath a long sheer skirt! There are so many textures, shapes, colours, and volumes to play around with. You can go with feather fever, contrast, ruffles, big and bold or the classic long, smooth and silky, this assortment is both chic and a little bit dramatic. In the best way!

2. Have I Seen You Before

The classic, simple and conservative wedding dress with a modern twist is always a go. Reflecting the latest dress styles into your short wedding dress can look amazing! I mean, this could be an actual example of ‘wearing it again.’ You never know. This doesn’t mean that a short wedding dress doesn’t deserve to be played up just as much as the usual fairy tale wedding dress. It’s just about wearing something that says you.

3. Flower Power

Short wedding dresses offer the chance to be a bit edgy and stray from the path. Not that the longer gowns can’t achieve this, just don’t underestimate the shorter dresses. Walk down the aisle with a pop of colour or a pattern. This could be attached through your dress or an accessory or pair of shoes. Go all in! Wedding dresses don’t always have to be white either. Floral designs are gorgeous! For any season as well! Not just spring! (groundbreaking). There are some amazing short wedding dress designs out there with chic and innovative additions. Just saying, colour is happening.

4. Stay Regal

Traditional doesn’t mean boring. Just because you’re opting for a short dress doesn’t mean it has to be any less regal than big and long wedding dresses. Detail counts. Embrace lace, embroideries, patterns, and other intricate details. Go as far as your heart desires. Walk down the aisle feeling like a princess!

5. Show Some Ankle

Maybe you can’t decide between floor length or knee length. So why not give midi a go. Show your guests some cheeky ankle. You’ll look damn fine and classy! You can focus on the top half of your dress knowing that the bottom half is taken care of. After all, it’s important to wear a dress that suits you. Don’t cut the hem to your legs if you’re not a leggy sort of person. But please don’t hide beneath a long gown just to be modest. Apparently, your wedding day is when you’ll look your best! So, a midi wedding dress could be just for you. You’ll still look modest, but modern, stylish and sexy.

6. Disco lights

A wedding dress can be whatever a bride wants it to be. And it doesn’t just stop at the length. A short wedding dress has the capacity to be brighter than the sun. Stray from traditional completely and opt for sequins, beads, sparkles or jewels. It can be any colour or texture. But this kind of short wedding dresses looks amazing. They’re super unique and fun. If your wedding just isn’t screaming ‘white,’ then wear a white dress that looks good walking down the aisle and on the dance floor. No one will blink (expect if you reflect the light in their eyes.)

Love the sound of walking down the aisle in a short dress but then think, hmm could I go shorter? Then this kind of short wedding dress is just for you. A gorgeous body suit up top. And don’t think for a second of dressing the bodysuit down. It can be just as regal and princess wedding-y as you like! Incorporate a long trail, cape or veil around your waist and you’re in business!

8. Dress Meets Jacket

There are some divine wedding suits out there! This could be the best solution ever to the long wedding dress vs. short wedding conundrum! Wear a suit! I’m not talking a plain, boring long pants suit. No no. Imagine a steamed, white suit blazer and matching skirt.  It’s a conservative look but the skirt is short, so make sure you’re shoes are fabulous too! This look is classic and chic. It’s the best wedding dress to walk down the aisle in. (Or drive a boat, whichever one you prefer.)

9. Bedazzle

As if I haven’t harped on enough about how much a bride deserves to have her wedding dress as glitzy and glamorous enough. Well, she can. A short dress doesn’t have to be kept simple. That’s way too safe. The bride will already have everybody’s attention but why not tread on the safe side and find a short dress that will catch everyone’s eyes. Remember, it doesn’t stop at white. The floor is yours! Or rather, the aisle.

11. The Veil

I don’t think the veil gets enough credit. The great thing about walking down the aisle in a short wedding dress is how adorable the veil can be. It doesn’t have to trail for a kilometre behind you while half a dozen bridesmaid try to scoop it up. It can be as simple and gorgeous as the dress.
