Wedding Gown Style- Short and Sassy

By Peonies and Company

Short, Sweet, Sophisticated, and Sassy

Audrey Hepburn is probably the most famous woman to marry in the short or tea length wedding dress, but not the only!  Since the roaring 20’s women have opted for a shorter length to their wedding dresses. After the 1920’s women of all decades from the 50, 70’s and 80’s have followed suit wearing short wedding dresses. One fabulous designer from the UK  Tobi Hannah has made this her specialty, even writing a book about  the subject-  titled “The Short Wedding Dress: The Dress, The Bride, The Style”. Short wedding dresses are always appropriate,” says Cassandra Quinn, manager of the NYC outpost of the Lovely Bride Shop.

Brides are always told to take in consideration where (location), and when (season), they will have their wedding, but times are a changing. Ladies -you are marrying the man you love, that may or may not fit everybody’s ideal of what they want for you, so why does your dress have to either? Here are some great examples of REAL girls in REAL short wedding dresses … Be Brave! Go Short!
