Short Wedding Dress, breaking free from tradition.

Welcome, lovely friends! Today, I want to share my last few chats I've had with brides around the globe who are considering a short wedding dress. One is celebrating her vow renewal after 20 years of marriage, one is getting married for the first time and is over 50 and one gorgeous lady is pregnant with her first child. With my own story of being a second time bride when I was in my 30's it is so apparent that we are all so wonderfully different. I just love it!

Here are some things to remember if you're feeling a little left of field. 

  1. Age Is Just a Number: They say age is just a number, and boy, they couldn't be more right! When I embarked on the journey of finding my dream wedding dress, I realised that conventional notions should never dictate our choices. Whether you're 20 or 50, the most important thing is feeling confident and comfortable in your own skin.

  2. Short Dresses: A Modern Twist: As I explored various bridal options, I found myself gravitating toward the cheeky "why not" attitude of short wedding dresses. Gone are the days when floor-length gowns were the only option. Short dresses have become a symbol of modernity, confidence, and breaking away from tradition.

  3. Embracing Your Personal Style: One of the beauties of being an older bride is having a well-defined personal style. You've had years to refine your taste and know what makes you feel beautiful. So, why not embrace it on your wedding day? 

  4. Comfort and Practicality: Let's face it: weddings can be a whirlwind of emotions, dancing, and endless socializing. Opting for a short dress allows you to move freely, mingle with guests, and dance the night away without worrying about tripping over a long train. Comfort and practicality can be at the forefront of your decision-making process. Longevity and   re -wearable were big factors for me. I was never really down with single use. 

  5. A Touch of Elegance: Short dresses are often associated with casual or informal affairs, but that doesn't mean they lack elegance. With the right fabric, embellishments, and accessories, you can elevate your short dress to a whole new level of sophistication. From delicate lace to intricate beading, the options are endless.

  6. Breaking Stereotypes: Choosing a short dress as a bride might raise a few eyebrows, but that's part of the fun! Embracing your unique style and breaking stereotypes is a statement in itself. Your wedding day is a celebration of love and individuality, and there's no better way to express that than through your choice of dress.

 It's all about embracing who you are, celebrating your personal style, and feeling radiant on your special day. So friends, remember to let your personality shine through, break free from tradition if it doesn't resonate with you, and enjoy every moment of being a bride in a short dress. Cheers to love, confidence, and happily ever after!
