There’s a new trend for chic brides and we’ve got the long + short of it! Short wedding dress + long veil pairings have been catching on among fashion-forward brides. The look is very fun — and a little bit feisty. It’s not surprising that mini wedding dresses are becoming more common. As the guest list shrinks, so do the hemlines! Smaller weddings (and elopements) tend to be less formal, making way for the dress design to follow.
What’s SO fun about the addition of a cathedral-length veil is how it pairs this idea of a formal event with the flirtiness happening underneath. It’s very chic and judging by how popular this look is every time we share on Instagram, you guys are fans, too.
We’re at the forefront of the trend, so be ready for more brides to take the look and make it their own! Perhaps you’ll be next? Have a look at some of our favorite pairings for inspiration!
