You don’t need a floor-length gown to look fantastic on your big day. Not only can
you dance all night sporting a shorter hemline, but you can also stretch your dollar
by wearing it again in the future—something you can’t always say about a traditional
wedding gown. Whether you are looking to walk down the aisle in a leg-baring design
or just planning on slipping into a shorter number for the reception, here are our favorite picks. You can thank us when you get your dry-cleaning bill back.
