    As we all know, weddings come with many traditions such as brides have to wear gowns that were made to skim the floor or trail down the aisle.  However, some rules can be broken, especially if you consider yourself as more of an unconventional bride.  Instead of choosing this style, you want to go for new and innovative designs such as wearing a short winter wedding dress.  This is one of the boldest and chicest things you can do.  The traditional wedding dress has been given a contemporary spin this year and we predict that this trend will be very popular in 2020.  Do scroll down to find out some style tips on how to wear a short wedding dress.

    How To Choose the Right Short Wedding Dress 

    This tip is the same as when you pick out other garments.  When you choose a short or mini wedding dress, make sure that it matches with your figure.  Thus, short dresses are perfect for women who have:-

    • A delicate figure with medium height

    • An energetic and active character, so that she will be freely moving all day long

    For slim women, voluminous and flaring shapes, complete with multi-layered textures and fluttery details are great. For brides who are curvaceous, picking pieces with a sassy décolleté may be quite beneficial.  You can also check out some plus size wedding dresses that have shorter length.

    The Different Types of Short Wedding Dresses 

    There are many different types of short wedding dresses that you can consider.   They are bold mini options to slightly below the knee variants, as well as knee-length or slightly above the knee types. The most important thing is that you need to take time to choose wisely. This will offer you the opportunity to pick between the styles, choosing the style you like and feel comfortable with.

    Pregnant brides may pick an empire type wedding dress as this will nicely conceal the belly and focus everyone’s attention on your décolleté and legs.

    Tea Length Wedding Dresses

    Tea-length dresses are in between the mini and maxi lengths.  They present a totally different type of chic and glam. Most of the dresses belong to the flare category and often also have a 50’s retro feel.  Some of the characteristics of tea-length dresses are nipped waists and fitted bodices.

    Mini Wedding Dresses

    Mini wedding dresses are the bolder and shorter alternatives.  These dresses come in full and flare silhouettes, body-con options, and many more. This dress style is best for brides with beautiful legs.   Choosing simple and classic jewelry and accessories for styling these types of looks is the best.

    Short Wedding Dresses with Sleeves

    Short wedding dresses with sleeves are stylish and trendy.  Besides being elegant and chic, this style gives the bride an opportunity to accentuate her girly and charming vibes. Thus, short and often lace-made sleeves create the best effect possible. Such dresses are the most suitable way of feeling comfortable and looking bedazzling at the same time.

  10. Affordable Maternity Wedding Dresses For Comfort and Style

    September 5, 2019 by barbara

    Planning a wedding and a baby? Congratulations! There is nothing better than a double celebration.  There is something special about a wedding which includes the youngest member of the family.  One thing that comes to mind is just how to choose a comfortable and stylish maternity wedding dress.

    If you are on a hunt for a maternity wedding dress, there are a few things to consider.

    Belly growth and style

    Obviously, the most important aspect to focus on is the stage of your belly growth on your wedding day. However, there are no particular rules when it comes to maternity wedding dresses. It all boils down to what makes you comfortable!  It goes without saying that a corset is out of the question, as are any other super-restrictive silhouettes, structured bodices, and tight waistlines.  Choose dresses that make easy movement, climate-appropriate fabrics, and room for growth spurts. Look for A-line shapes, empire waists and light fabrics like tulle or chiffon which may skim nicely over your bump.

    This long sleeve chiffon wedding dress is elegant and super flattering.  It is the perfect example of a dress which is simple and versatile, but not boring. It is an ideal dress for fall or winter gown, or even for a chilly spring morning wedding.

    Dress length

    A large bump will create a shortened hemline at the front of the dress.  Therefore choose an extra-long gown if you want a floor-length look.  The same rules apply for cocktail-length dresses too.   Your feet may be swollen during pregnancy so a floor-length dress is the best.

    The shape of this dress is incredibly flattering for baby bumps of all stages and sizes.  It exudes a fairy-tale boho vibe.

    There is something timeless and stylish about this long sleeve V-neck lace dress.

    All the above stunning dresses are from Cocosbride.com, an expert in wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses. Though its maternity wedding dress collection may be small, it is the place to head for fashion-forward designs that are highly affordable.

    Hosting a wedding while pregnant is certainly a unique event.  See a style that catches your eye? Now is the time to grab it.
