Wedding Trend Alert: The Little White Dress

Keep your bridal look short and sweet with eight of our favorite picks.

1. Alice + Olivia Fyona lace-bodice party dress, $597 at Bergdorf Goodman. 2. Tadashi Shoji crinkle chiffon one-shoulder dress, $368 at Tadashi Shoji. 3. Hitherto Kensington dress, $380, BHLDN. 4. Ted Baker London embroidered mesh fit-and-flare dress, $825 at Nordstrom.

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.

5. Jason Wu leather-and-silk dress, $3,395 at Neiman Marcus.

6. ML Monique Lhuillier tiered lace bustier dress,
$598 at Saks Fifth Avenue.

7. Va Et Vien Kauai dress, $800 at BHLDN.

8. Ann Taylor embroidered tea-length strapless
dress, $695 at Ann Taylor.
