I love the idea of taking a step away from the traditional wedding gown and choosing instead to wear a short and stylish dress for your special day. Many brides are opting to showcase their personal style (and their legs!) by choosing these comfortable and stunning cocktail length or tea length dresses. These fancy frocks are perfect for an afternoon garden wedding or a relaxed cocktail style reception.

Not ready to say goodbye to the full-length gown completely? Then consider wowing your guests and your fiance by changing into a short dress for reception. Or consider a classy short dresses for your rehearsal dinner! Check out The White Dress to see a large selection of little white dresses!
