Rethinking Short Wedding Gowns

Mar 6th

With each passing year, brides are rethinking what a wedding dress should be. Brides are walking down the aisle in gowns featuring new shapes, new colors (and we don’t mean ivory), and new lengths! The short wedding gown – from mini-skirt to tea-length – is being rethought in new ways for all styles of weddings from outdoor Summer affair to New Year’s Eve city soirees.

Two variations of short wedding gowns in the Janice Martin Couture studio in Ardmore, PA

Short wedding gowns by Janice Martin Couture are short on fabric but not in details. Two detail views of short wedding dresses (below) show the intricacy of the fine fabrics from France that are available to Janice Martin Couture clients. Many gowns are constructed out of fabrics from the same company used for the creation of Kate Middleton’s wedding gown. Lace in particular is being utilized in new and exciting ways – from antique to contemporary lace, brides are redefining every bit of what “bridal” actually means.

Short in length, not in details! Two detailed views of gowns featuring fabrics from France.
