Wedding Dresses - Shorter Models

Sunday, 07 June 2009

short wedding dressA wedding is a sacred ceremonial and unforgettable thing in the life of any woman. A bride at the event looks like a princess from fairy tales though all brides look like each other in their traditional full-length white wedding gowns. In spite of this widely spread tradition, there's an interesting trend in wedding dresses.  Evidently it's the reinvention of a trend from the 1950's!

Fancy dresses and weddings that cost a fortune aren't for everyone, and less expensive dresses in casual settings are a great solution.

Thus, a wedding dress should be short!

Short dresses are especially popular at informal outdoor weddings, beach weddings, destination weddings (easier to travel with!), and second and above weddings.

The wedding attire can be made from chiffon, silk, guipure, taffeta, satin and lace, velvet and white denim. Yes-yes, the denim that Pamela Anderson was at her wedding function.

The first short wedding dresses were created by incredible Gabrielle Coco Chanel who gave us almost all wonderful and comfortable wear in the current world. She imagined a wedding gown as a modest and elegant dress with a lower waist-line, slightly down the knees, with flounces and goffering. Yet, the veil was like a small derby hat. There comes the time of Twiggy who did shock the society with mini wedding dresses, yet in '70s the hippies got to the weddings and the society enjoyed wedding ensembles with embroidery, ethnic and folklore patterns.

Want to be know what the situation is currently? For your wedding party Oscar De La Renta offers magnificent short dresses with puffy down resembling tropical flowers, all for tender and romantic brides. Satin dress by Carolina Herrera are for sexual and elegant brides. Lanvin Couture House presented wedding tunics that will make brides unique but very modest.   Alberta Ferretti Brand launched collection of wedding dresses with a plenty of accessories. The upper part of gowns is generously decorated with jewels and you need nothing to compliment such attire. The neckline of simple Vera Wang wedding dress and its short length are perfect for a bride who wants a not-too-serious dress. Loose dresses by Prada embroidered with golden beads are also in the list of popular short wedding dresses.

A veil, does it suit the short dress? Why not though designers did not come to an agreement. Valentino, Versace and Balenciaga find short dresses with long veil elegant and charming while the others believe that bare hair styled into fancy hairdo with tropical flowers and jewels show solemnity and happiness of the event matching short wedding dresses.

If you choose short wedding dress you have a chance to wear it for other occasions as well, especially if it of other color but white. You may want to decorate your plain dress with beads, pearls or rhinestones and have an absolutely another dress for a wedding party.

Short wedding dresses look pretty cute, but definitely not traditional.  You probably need to have some nice legs and a nice figure to go with them. Though you should be accurate with short dresses since if you go out the borders you may look vulgar but not elegant. Take a small purse to match your dress.

With the right choice of dress design and accessories, informal short wedding dresses can be perfect for more casual nuptials without sacrificing beauty and style.
