, it is time to look at some of the great short styles Prom Girl
has to offer to all of you non-traditional brides-to-be. As someone with a wardrobe large enough to clothe a small country, I am definitely what most would consider a clothes horse. However, ordinary designs and contemporary fashions are not something I have much interest in. I have my own unique sense of style. I can truly relate to a bride who wants to express her individuality by breaking away from boring, over-played and out-dated bridesmaids dresses.
Short dresses are fun and flirty
, but one of the greatest things about them is they are much more likely to be worn again and again once the wedding
is over. Perhaps you have already thought of this in your effort to be a considerate bride.
For those of you who may be on the fence about whether or not to go with a shorter style, allow me to suggest a dress that offers the best of both worlds. This simple and understated gown
can be worn full length during the ceremony and the bottom can be detached to afford your bridesmaids a bit more freedom during the reception. This dress has a high possibility of not getting buried in the back of the closet after the nuptials are all said and done.
For a dress that screams out celebrity and high fashion, you may look for something like this soft and glamorous
number. Very Marilyn Monroe: classy but still sexy. If you are looking for a short wedding gown it will fit the bill too.
When flashiness is the objective, what better way is there to be flashy than glitter, rhinestones and sequins? For a vintage wedding, a 1920's flapper style dress
with golden glitter could be really hip. If you really want to go for the gold in terms of eye-catching sparkle, this multi-colored, sequined gown
would surely fit the bill. Some friends of mine had a casino themed wedding and married in Las Vegas....this would have been a perfect fit!
For a retro wedding, a short and colorful
dress like this would be refreshing. (I have also seen this in long styles, but the short one just seems so much more fun.) So if the sixties or seventies theme is your thing, you might consider something similar. Bold accessories like chunky jewelry in coordinating colors would top it all off.
For those of you who want to go with short bridesmaids dresses and are not really looking for flashy or off the wall styles, something simple (yet gorgeous) like this feminine little black dress
with an asymmetrical design and super modern bubble hem is ideal. Even better, it won't break the budget at under $20!
Short dresses can be a variety of lengths, styles and colors. Mix it up! Try letting each bridesmaid wear a different dress in varying shades of a color scheme. Going short can be exciting and fun-filled. Let your imagination flow and dare to be different!
