Short Wedding Dresses

"A wedding offers the opportunity to express your own individual taste and personality. Wedding dresses come in a variety of styles. If you're more modern than traditional, perhaps a short wedding dress is right for you. The right short dress can convey sophistication and understated elegance while still keeping you at the center of attention." ~ S. Herlihy

So if you are not going with the traditional long wedding dress, check out these beautiful short style dresses.

5 Styles of Wedding Dresses

One of the biggest decisions you will face as your big day approaches is the perfect wedding dress. The process of shopping for a wedding dress can be a fun adventure, but it can also be stressful and overwhelming. You may have no idea what you are going to wear but the important thing is to relax and remember there are as
many different kinds of dresses as there are different kinds of brides.

The style of your wedding dress is the single most important factor in creating your overall look on your wedding day.  Wedding dresses can range from sleek and simple to grand and elaborate.  The style you chose for your wedding day will depend on your own personal taste and the statement you want to make on your big day. 

Mermaid or Trumpet Style

Mermaid or Trumpet style wedding dresses hug the curves closely and are a great choice if you feel like to want to accentuate your curvy figure. Women that are petite may find that it shortens their appearance and so may find this  unappealing. This is a beautiful shape for the fit, yet curvy girl.

A-Line or Princess

A-Line wedding dresses are wonderful choices for almost any bride. This flattering dress shape balances out top heavy shapes and helps hide some tummy bulge. This style is also known as the Princess Wedding Dress style. A most forgiving style, it's a great choice for most brides.

Empire

This is a very forgiving wedding dress shape, great for many body types. Classically it has a high waistline and the seam is just underneath the bust and the fabric below the waist falls gracefully to the floor. Slim brides with small busts tend to like this shape as well and pregnant brides find this the most comfortable shape to wear.

Sheath or Column

The Sheath, which is also known as the Column wedding dress runs pretty much vertically from the shoulders down to the floor and the hem does not flair out, like it does in the A-Line, Empire or Ball Gown. These dresses are usually body-hugging wedding gowns and work best for slim brides with balanced figures. It is also suitable for petite brides on the slim side since it tends to elongate their shape. If you are not super confident in your shape, you might want to mark this one off your list, as you want to be happy and confident on your wedding day.

Ball Gown

The Ball Gown wedding gown is also called the Fairy-Tale wedding gown, or the Cinderella wedding dress. Usually paired with fitted bodices, these gowns flare out from the hips, adding drama and over-the-top glamour. A fitted waist is ideal for this shape and petite body types might find these dresses a bit overwhelming to their small frames.

Yellow and Blue Wedding

Yellow and blue are an ideal combination for your wedding, especially if it is taking place 
during the summer. Using one color as the main shade for your wedding, with an accent color complementing it, can change your wedding from "blah" to "wow."The yellow/blue combo is one of those "wow" combinations. 

 Blue dresses with yellow accents or flowers really make the blue pop. Yellow roses with blue ribbons along the aisle will complement the attire. This color combination is pretty interchangeable.

If you are considering a yellow/blue color combination, enjoy the following ideas  you can use for your wedding day!
