Wedding Gown Trend Alert: Short & Sweet

Wedding Gown Trend Alert: Short & Sweet

Now that you are ready to shop for your wedding day I am taking you through the latest wedding gown trends this week. Now, we want to avoid the insanity of the running of the brides so here is a fresh trend in bridal fashion: short & sweet. After discussing this with coworkers, the consensus is these are very modern and daring. I'm even on the fence; while these dresses are beautiful, I'm not sure if I'd want to wear one on my wedding day. But I think they are a great style for an outdoor wedding - to avoid grass stains on one's train!

I like the idea of a short dress for certain weddings. Changes things up a bit. I checked out all of the sites for the short options. Alfred Angelo also has six other really adorable short styles in stores, which are amazingly reasonable. Great for the ceremony or after at the reception, or even for the rehearsal dinner.

Personally, I feel that my own collection of short dresses are formal enough for any wedding and are reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn in the 1950s. I may be a little biassed, but I wonder if the "Edmonton" or the "Manhattan" gown might make some girls rethink whether a short dress might be right for them. Forget trendy..shoot for timeless! http://www.DollyCouture.net Thanks for looking! :)

Wedding dresses are long for the most part- but it depends on the woman and her style. The middle one is very cute.

I don't think that someone should pick a wedding dress because of a trend but what fits her style. I don't know if that makes any sense, I'm sure the two would compliment each other.

I would only go for a long dress, short is just not for me when it comes to a wedding dress.

If I had a summer wedding I would wear a shorter dress.

If I get married, I think I am going totally untraditional. I am just not a lacey white dress kind of girl. Reminds me too much of cupcakes, I think.

I also like the Romona dress, but only for a beach wedding.

I love Romona Keveza, and if I could have afforded one for my wedding, I would have worn one without a doubt. Of these short dresses, that's the only one I really love. When I was shopping in 2005/2006, Melissa Sweet also had a really cute short dress.

I love the Alfred Angelo dress on the right, as a dress, but I definitely wouldn't wear a short dress for my wedding. I suppose in the right setting -- maybe a casual backyard barbecue, the middle or right dress would be perfect. The dress on the left confuses me though, I can't think of an appropriate wedding situation for a formal-style dress that is short!

I think these can be a great option for short brides -- or summer brides, or brides with great legs! Tea-length, anyone?

I like longer wedding dresses, but the middle one is adorable.

Short is not my style for a wedding dress.

I saw several of these in this month's Lucky and I'm with you. I'm on the fence. I can see how they are modern and funky, but at the same time I guess I'm a traditional girl at heart.
