Short wedding dresses for simply sweet brides

The little white wedding dress is ideal for brides who are daring to bare a bit of leg on their wedding day. Timelessly chic, these above-the-knee bridal gowns go perfectly with Oscar de la Renta's cute bolero jackets and mary-jane courts.

And what could make you feel more feminine on your special day than a babydoll cut for the girliest of silhouettes. Or why not add an edgy twist this Autumn/Winter by pairing a delicate lace shift dress with matching white tights and geometric Sixties make-up.

Flattering in photos, the LWD is ideal for the evening on the dance floor and perfect for moving around freely and enjoying the day with your guests. Keep the look formal with a sophisticated up-do and an asymmetrical train for a touch of traditional wedding day glamour.
