Short Wedding Dresses

I had the pleasure and honor of joining my girlfriend Jaime and her mom Kay, try on wedding dresses this past Saturday. Seeing as I purchased the first wedding dress I tried on, it was fun for me to see her try on some fabulous dresses. She ended up finding "the dress" and I cannot wait to see her in it on her wedding day! We found the winning dress (along with some other INCREDIBLE dresses) at an adorable bridal shop called The White Dress in Corona Del Mar. The store is bright and airy and the sales people were wonderfully sweet and helpful.

Upon entering the store my eyes were immediately drawn to the Melissa Sweet Mari dress below:



If money wasn't an object, I would have bought this dress to change into after dinner. Luckily for me, a future bride tried the dress on and I got to enjoy the fabulousness of it.

The White Dress had some other spectacular shorties, which had me recalculating my budget...at least in my head :)

Melissa Sweet Style: Nell

Melissa Sweet Style: Billie (I can soo see SJP sporting this number)


Platinum Style: P1218

Vineyard Style: Ricki


Although it is not a possibility for my wedding, I absolutely love the idea of a short wedding dress. It adds a little fun, flirti-ness and dare I say innocence? What do you think? Short wedding dresses, thumbs up or thumbs down?

I love the Nell. Billie too! I think a short dress would be fab for a beach wedding!

I'm torn. Agreed if it was in the budget to change into a short dress I would so be all over that. But if it's not in the budget my motto is "Go big or go home" it's your wedding day! Get the big fancy dress and go all out. Wear the shorty for your rehearsal, honeymoon or someone else's wedding. :)

I really like your idea of changing after dinner but I have to say once you are in your dress and the day starts happening you dont want to take your dress off. Shelby's got a good point get it for your rehearsal or honeymoon.

Ooh! I love the Nell and the Billie!

I love short wedding dresses on other people but I wouldn't do it. I would totally wear a short wedding dress for rehearsal dinner or day after pics though!

I really like your selections (sooo pretty!). I really had a good idea of the features I wanted as well, and it saved me a lot of money. When I saw the dress that matched my vision @ a great price it was easy to pick it up and run with it.If You Nead to Wedding Dresses Please Contact:- China-stylish.com is a professional company that integrates the design, wholesale, production and marketing.
