The Long & Short Of It

Tradition schma-dition.  Knee length wedding dresses are all the rage in the bridal industry right now.  Lots of designers are featuring shorter, non-traditional dresses to cater to a wider client base.  This is really a fashion choice that each bride needs to make for herself.  Are you not a long dress type of girl?  Are you having an informal, outdoor wedding?  Do you want a second dress to be fun & flirty?  This trend might be for you.

Although many designers are jumping on this trend, one of my favorite new designers are Ivy & Aster.  Highlights of this new collaboration include short gowns range from $600–$900, tea-length and long gowns range from $1200–$3000 and all bridesmaid dresses are less than $300!

This gorgeous wedding featured on Style Me Pretty has so many wonderful details, including a knee-length bridal dress!  I wanted to find 'real weddings' with this dress style to really showcase that this is a great option and doesn't take away from the prettiness or the 'this is a wedding' aspects of the big day.  Also, I LOVE the light gray and yellow color scheme of the featured wedding.  Look for these colors all over 2011 weddings.  As for the short bridal dresses, it really is a personal decision.  Above all, a bride should feel the most beautiful on her wedding day- in whatever length dress.
