Bené’s back!

Last time she shared the ultimate wedding day survival kit (which is a must pin for organised brides and their type-A maids), this time she’s talking wedding dresses of the short, chic and oh so beautiful variety…

While I absolutely adore long, flowing gowns, I must admit I have a weakness for short wedding dresses.

I always get nostalgic seeing my grandmother’s black and white wedding photos. She looked timeless in a tea-length satin dress and a birdcage veil.

Short wedding dresses are perfect for brides with vintage taste. They’re also great for city hall weddings or for more casual affairs.

And, for the bride that can’t part with a long gown, short frocks are fabulous for evening dancing or for making a run to the getaway car at the end of the night.

I’ve gathered ten of the most beautiful short wedding dresses from across the web. So if you’re thinking about raising the hemline on your big day, all the inspiration you need is right here.
