Amen to everything everyone else has said. If you love it, no more questions need to be asked. I’m sure you’ll look fabulous!

That is awesome! I am glad it is working out and it is great that your grandmother brought that up!

Glad you are feeling better about it.  In the end, you will be at your wedding looking beautiful and happy- and that is what people will remember!

I too chose a short dress, because it was right for me.  I have never been into long dresses, not even for prom long, long ago.  Not everyone has to like my choice (or the aqua heels that I am wearing with it!), but it is my choice to make.

If you love it, that’s all that matters. Don’t let anyone kill your dress dream!

I got someone who reacted to my wearing a short WHITE dress specifically!  “Oh, its short eh? and… WHITE?” [we live together, heh] I just said “yep, it sure is, and I love it!”. It’s best to try to find humor in a situation, and then move on.

@ maryjane: I find humor in the fact that the person had a problem with your dress being both short and white. Did she expect you to wear a floor-length BLACK dress or something?

No, it’s not a mistake to wear what you love.  I love short wedding dresses and really wanted to wear one too, but didn’t.  I will wear a short dress for trash the dress instead.

I think it’s great to pick something unique, individual and shows your style.  Are the people you’re asking opinions fashionistas or have any style you like? If I were you, their comments will motivate me more to want to wear a short dress, not only to prove them wrong but to also show others that you don’t have to be like any other traditional bride out there.  Also, it will be more memorable than a traditional dress.
