I’m going to be getting married mid july, so it’s gonna be hot. I aways thought I wanted myself and my bridesmaids in long dresses, but then I saw this picture and thought it looked super cute.
My fiance and his groomsmen are most likely going to be wearing jeans and a white shirt (possibly short sleeved) with either a vest, tie, or both that are colored to match the bridesmaids.
what are y’alls experiences with short dresses? I was also thinking about having one that’s short in front and longer in the back?

It really looks like her wedding dress is just being hiked up…however, i LOVE a good tea length dress. Especially if you’re not going for super formal! I was looking for a tea length at first, but ended up in full length…might make the chop!

I almost got a mullet wedding dress although the length difference was more subtle. I knew I didn’t want a full length dress because my shortness would require alterations of the dress and because I have nice legs! I had two different knee length dresses, one for ceremony and one for subsequent celebration months later. They were very comfortable, cute, and easy to wear.

The picture looks like it’s actually a full size gown and she’s just hiking it up to show off the garter belt… However I feel ya! I got married in Mexico in july so it was super hot. I wore a just under tea length dress with a petticoat underneath for some size/flair. It was alot cooler than a long gown would have been- but be aware a petticoat will add heat too… I also have nice legs and saw no reason to cover them up- not really a long dress person… I am not a fan of the hi/lo trend on anything but that’s a personal fashion issue- mainly because I also like my butt & don’t want extra stuff covering it too..
If you are looking at a tea-length classic/vintage style dress (usually looks great with the style of pics you posted) I would look into Dolly Couture.. They made my dress and were very reasonable & even do custom work for about the same price as a ready-made dress…

I realize she’s wearing a full length dress, I was more interested in the bridesmaids dresses =)
I am super pear shaped, and I prefer to hide it. I’m also quite tall, so having a shorter dress would keep me from having extra length added to it!

I was originally going to wear a short wedding dress. But much to my surprise, my then-FI (now DH) hated the idea. It was the strogest wedding-related opinion I ever saw him have! In the end, I wore a floor length dress.
My point is, your Fiance might not be so into a short dress. I never would have guessed that mine would care- but he totally did!! You might want to ask your man about the idea.
I like the idea of a high-low dress. It would give that same short skirt feeling, but is more traditional and formal.

This is a “real life” example of the short dresses/boots look from a wedding I was in several years ago. It was outdoors in mid-August and very hot, so it worked well. My wedding will be in March, so I will be “bundling up” a little more. 😉

If your fiance is wearing jeans, then you definitely do not want to wear a formal dress. It just doesn’t look right. Definitely find a shorter dress which matches the more casual theme

I’m all about short dresses! My wedding is in August on the family ranch, so I want a casual, true to myself look. It’s a princess dress, minus the inconvenience of packing a full ball gown around all night. I am getting new boots of course 🙂

I love tea length, short, hi-low wedding dresses. I will be going with 1 of those styles (unless THE ONE is different, haha)

I love short dresses! I will be wearing a short (above the knee) lace dress in my wedding, which is in about 2 weeks!

I tried this hi/lo Zuhair Murad dress and it looked totally ridiculous on me (this is not me, just model photo, obviously) – I had that instant NO GET THIS OFF ME NOW, maybe because I’m short (just under 5’4) and you need legs for days for this kind of gown? Def up there in the top 3 worst gowns for me I tried on:
I do love a short wedding gown and had the following short listed as back up dresses (however once I had found and paid for my main gown I knew I wouldn’t want to change out of it for anything in the world!) – anyhow, my short dress inspiration:
