The LWD – How to Rock a Short Wedding Dress


It’s official – short wedding dresses are back in, and brides are not complaining!

Not only do short wedding dresses provide less hassle for brides on their big day, but they’re great for low budget weddings too. With this in mind, the Wedding Team at Delamere Manor has pulled together a list of their top tips on how to rock a short wedding dress, giving you the style inspiration you need to prove your dress doesn’t have to be floor-length to be elegant and appropriate for your big day…


  • Pair With a Medium Veil

A great way to make your short wedding dress more suitable for your big day is by pairing with a medium veil. The length will match perfectly with the length of your dress whilst giving you that all-important “bride” feeling throughout the day. 


  • Go Vintage

Going vintage is a great option when it comes to selecting a short wedding dress as they were very much in style in the 50s and 60s. Think beautiful, beaded midi dresses, tea-length white gowns or maybe even a 60s mini.


  • It’s All in the Details

Just because you’re opting for a short wedding dress, doesn’t mean it needs to lack the details! Find something that will make you stand out from the crowd in your wedding photos with options such as feather skirts, lace, sheath, glitter embellishments and floral embroidery.


  • Think Sleeves

Whether you prefer off-the-shoulder, flute, fitted or mid-length- selecting a short dress with sleeves gives you the opportunity to find something unique and comfortable for your big day, whilst finding something weather appropriate.


  • Detachable Trains

Detachable trains are a great way to rock your short wedding dress as it provides the perfect outfit change from your ceremony to your reception. Providing something classy and sassy, you can feel romantic and elegant whilst you walk down the aisle yet feel comfortable whilst hitting the dancefloor. It’s a two-for-one deal- and we love it!
