Not every bride-to-be has visions of herself walking down the aisle with a mile-long train following behind her. Some brides prefer more conservative attire, donning dresses somewhat reminiscent of a traditional cocktail dress. If you are one of these brides, there is a wide variety of dresses to choose from that are still in traditional white, ivory, or champagne. A “short wedding dress” is considered anything tea length, which appears about mid-calf, and above.
One of the most classy dresses largely resembles a cocktail dress that may have been worn by arguably the most famous first lady, Jackie Kennedy. This white lacy dress, designed by Jean-Ralph Thurin for the Fall 2014 Collection, features a black belt and is sleeveless. This is a stunning example of class and beauty, perfect for any bride-to-be looking to go a bit shorter than many traditional gowns.
Some brides opt for a dress reminiscent of a traditional gown yet shorter than most. One option is from the Marchesa Fall 2014 Collection. This dress is strapless, so elegant and sexy, with a great deal of organza and satin. It is cut just above the knee and is a wonderful choice for any bride-to-be.
Monique Lhuillier’s Fall 2014 Collection has several options to choose from for short wedding dresses as well. From the modern, sleek, no-nonsense Julia dress to the Lucille with its crisp, fresh A-line skirt, this collection offers a wide variety of choices. The Julia is a white silk dress with an open scoop neckline with embossed jacquard and seamed shift body. It is simple yet chic and beautiful. The Lucille has a natural waist and A-line skirt, and the neckline is a Chantilly lace illusion neckline.
Dolly Couture offers a wide variety of vintage-inspired short wedding dresses, all filled with whimsy and charm. For example, the Newport Beach is a pristine white dress, reminiscent of its namesake’s white sands, with overlaid polka dot mesh side panels for added effect. This dress also is available in ivory or champagne, and the satin waistline and hemline is available in pink, black, white, ivory, or champagne.
For a mixture of traditional and modern, with a slight twist, the Dress Prato is a long-sleeved, short romper with Chic Bella lace and a bateau illusion neckline. This dress also features pockets, a cotton grosgain ribbon waistline, and bow-detailed back. This dress is available in ivory, champagne, and white.

All of these dresses make perfect gowns for any rehearsal, wedding exit, cocktail party, reception party, or even a fancy honeymoon dinner.
