Have you considered NOT wearing a full length wedding dress for your big day? Maybe you’re getting married in a leafy garden or on a sunny beach, or maybe you just want a fun, flirty, informal look and want to be able to dance all night!

There are lots of options for shorter dresses – the ballerina type dress hovering around the ankles, knee-length, and tea-length which is somewhere in between the two! And Louisa from findyourdreamweddingdress.co.uk has put together her favourites to show you…

Darla by Mooshki

Quirky label Mooshki is perfect for the bride who wants a short or tea-length dress which is vintage in style with a modern twist. Darla has a daring sheer tulle back with sumptuous French lace that is also on the front of the bodice. The illusion neckline and elbow-length sleeves are the perfect complement to the soft A-line tulle skirt. This comes in lots of colours!

Curvy brides love Callista for great structure and fit and superb design elements. Cannes is wonderfully evocative of the place it’s named after. It’s stylish, fun, and oozing elegance with a stunning lace bodice and pretty tulle skirt.


Vicky by Karen George

Karen George offers fabulous designs and stunning silhouettes at a great price, and Vicky is a perfect example of just how elegant a shorter dress can be. It has a high illusion neck and keyhole back to add another dimension.
