Consider the setting and atmosphere you’re hoping to create on your wedding day. Short wedding dresses are fun and flirty. They are a great choice if you’re getting in a more casual setting. Planning an outdoor or beach wedding? A short wedding dress eliminates any worry about dirtying the bottom of your dress. Vintage lover? A tea-length lace wedding dress looks sweet and retro.

Find the right style. The most universally flattering and versatile length for a hem hits just around the middle of the knee cap. Tea length or longer usually looks best on taller brides. If you’re planning to wear a mini dress, be mindful of how much leg is exposed and make sure you can comfortably walk, sit and dance without worrying about a wardrobe malfunction.

Make sure the dress can emphasize your features. If you’re self-conscious about your arms but love your décolletage, a dress with sleeves and V-neck or sweetheart neckline covers just where you need it. A short, swingy shift dress can camouflage trouble areas around the middle while showing off lean limbs. Go sleeves or strapless to show off a toned upper body. Select a style with a nipped in waist to show off a feminine figure.

Take the season and weather in mind. While short wedding dresses work year-round, in warmer seasons (or climates), a short wedding dress can keep you from overheating. Winter brides should consider adding a pretty cover-up and other layers for extra warmth.

At last but not least, don’t forget the accessories. A veil is the ultimate bridal accessory, and if you’re planning to wear one with your short wedding dress, opt for a blusher or a style that hits at your elbow or higher. A short veil will complement – not compete with – your dress. You can also skip the veil altogether and add a special hair accessory instead.
