Winking cheekily at convention, short wedding dresses and tea length wedding dresses provide a charming, playful, take on the wedding gown and will ensure that fun (and your wedding shoes) is the central motif of your special day. The shift, tea-length, and knee-length options are perfect for an outdoor/backyard setting or a wedding with a vintage feel, and also work beautifully as a reception or second dress if you desire an outfit change for the day! Perfect for a variety of body types, a vintage tea length wedding dress works well with curvy, athletic, or pear-shaped figures, shorter dresses can elongate legs and balance out a long or short waist. This shape can find a variety of expressions, from whimsical, vintage, or ethereal to beach-y or preppy; the short wedding dress is long on attitude and nontraditional charm. The short wedding dress can also let your shoes and accessories shine, and is the perfect backdrop for your elaborate veil or fascinator and those beyond-fabulous shoes that deserve center stage.
