Summer weddings mean sunny and bright days… along with a lot of heat. While summer’s rays shouldn’t have the final say in your dream wedding dress, we know you want to look and feel as glam as possible. Short wedding dresses can be just as stylish as a traditional wedding gown, plus they let you feel the occasional breeze. Scroll on for 11 short wedding frocks that bring on the drama without the extra length.
1. Flare Out Dress ($248): If you’re thinking about going the short route but want traditional detailing, then this gown was made for you. The top half is modest and sweet, while the lace adds interest. We’re obsessed with the hem detail.
