With our ever-changing world, your wedding plans may have changed as well. Perhaps you have gone from a guest list of 250 to 50, or even smaller. Many weddings this 2020 season have been cancelled, rescheduled or postponed. This includes the weddings I have coordinated.
Has your vision of your wedding dress changed? Are you contemplating a more simple style, perhaps a shorter version? Well, first off, if you wish to wear an over the top dress…do it! This is YOUR day, there is no right or wrong. But… if are considering a shorter dress. I have some lovely options to share. Below is a tea-length gown. A tea-length gown is one that is not to the floor, but well below the knees. This is a nice compromise between a floor length gown and a shorter dress.
Are you looking for a classic short dress? Then you may be interested in the gorgeous dress below.
If I were a bride today, I think I’d choose a dress like the next one. This is a vintage 50’s era frock. I love the belted waist, the sweetheart neckline and the lace bodice. It checks off all my wishlist items.
Can’t make up your mind? Well the gown above gives you the best of both worlds, long in the back shorter in the front.
The best things about a shorter wedding gown? It is a perfect way to showcase some extra special wedding shoes. So if you do go with a shorter dress, consider some spectacular heels!
No matter what dress you choose, make sure you select a trusted family member or friend to take your wedding gown to a specialty clean/preserver. If you’re not taking a honeymoon right after your wedding, you can do this yourself. But remember, the care of your gown can’t wait. It should be done with in two to three days.
