Wedding Dress

8 short wedding dresses for every bride


The LWD (little white dress) is a staple of chic modern weddings, with brides and designers alike embracing the short trend. There’s the ballerina (just above the ankle), the tea-length (just below the knee or mid-shin), and the hi-lo (the mullet of the wedding dress world: short at the front, party at the back). You could even – gasp – opt for a mini (check first for church ceremonies as there might be rules about above-the-knee frocks).

So if you’re getting married on the beach, heading abroad or simply prefer a shorter dress, forego the floor sweeper and show off your pins in a LWD. Just make sure you team it with some seriously gorgeous shoes.
