We all have our staple LBD, but what about your LWD? Yes, we’re talking about a Little White Dress– every bride’s best friend! Even if you’re not looking for short wedding dresses for the big day, a little white dress comes in handy for all sorts of pre-wedding occasions.

There is something so chic and stylish about disrupting the trend of the long gown and seeing brides rock short, tea length, or midi wedding dresses for their big day. With the rise of micro weddings, elopements, and minimonies, choosing a short wedding dress feels like a stunning choice for these smaller, intimate affairs. Some brides will opt to rock a short wedding dress just for the reception or after party, while others may wear it for both the ceremony and the reception. Whatever you decide, there are some incredible options to select from.

These dresses are perfect for a plethora of wedding venues or seasons. Consider wearing a short dress on the beach for a sunset summer wedding. A tea-length dress works perfectly for a spring garden party.  And depending on what region you live in, selecting a midi gown for an outdoor fall or winter wedding would be beautiful. It’s also a time to show off those gams and your gorgeous wedding day shoes
