Many brides to be are faced with the question at the start of their gown hunt: short or long? And, with wedding dress trends constantly in flux,  it’s times like these that it can be easier to make a decision based off of your venue and wedding agenda (i.e. do you plan on dancing the night away?).

For a traditional wedding held in a church or another place of worship, a short wedding gown may not be the right gown for the occasion.  Furthermore, those long aisles were practically built for a long train that can make for a stunning entrance. However, if the wedding is in a civic space or even outdoors, a short wedding gown is a cute, stylish option that is perfect for the ceremony, to show off the shoes and bust a move on the dance floor afterwards.

When traveling abroad for your wedding, a short wedding dress may be a blessing for your luggage. Also, when it comes to repurposing your wedding gown, a short gown is a great versatile look that can be worn many times.

It is important to consider your body type. Both short and long wedding dresses offer a lot of versatility within their categories when it comes to presenting a breath-taking bride. Short wedding gowns are great for brides not afraid to show off their legs, while long wedding gowns are an excellent opportunity for a bride to show off on her big day. Long trains and a plethora of décor is the perfect recipe for the modern princess look, while a fit and flare with a layered skirt is a stylish and feminine go-to.

Most importantly, always consider your own personal style, what is it that you feel comfortable in? What do you wear on a regular day basis?
