Six of the best – Short Wedding Dresses

If you’re planning a vintage wedding then a short wedding dress is a sure fire way of creating the right look.  A short dress instantly says Audrey Hepburn, 1950s, understated glamour.

Even if your theme isn’t vintage, there are numerous reasons to go knee length, tea length or even mini!

By rejecting the traditional full length gown you’re making it clear to everyone that you’re doing this wedding your way.

A short dress is also a great choice for a wedding abroad (easier to pack and no worries when stepping through the sand and sea for your beach front nuptials).

And of course we can’t forgot cost.  Short dresses can be much more budget friendly, leaving funds left over to spend on other important aspects of the day.

Here are six of our favourite short dresses:

Festival Chic Wedding Fair

Last weekend we held our second Festival Chic Wedding Fair.  This unique fair was the first (and the only)  of its kind in Warwickshire and Birmingham.  The fair was held in Coleshill, Birmingham at the home of the amazing Deckerdence Bus Bar Marquee.

We welcomed 151 brides and more than 400 visitors.

This outdoor fair featured Deckerdence, tipis, a marquee, bell tents, food & drink, live music and a whole host of exhibitors.  We  work hard to create a real festival feel so it was great to see people relaxing in the sun, having fun in the photo booths, enjoying the food & drink and kids playing in the grass.  Of course that was all in between the time they spent chatting to our 50 exhibitors who all cater for outdoor, festival, tipi, boho, garden or marquee weddings.

Outdoor weddings are becoming soooo popular and our fair reminded us why. Couples get so much flexibility with an outdoor wedding. You can choose the size of your structure, your caterers, your timings, even your own ceremony. They are also great for children.
