Fiercely Fab Friday: Short Wedding Dresses By Era

Happy Friday All!!! Short wedding dresses are still such a major trend so I thought it would be fun to take a look at some cute styles inspired by different eras.

20’s Inspired Short Wedding Dresses

The roaring 20’s are back thanks to the influence of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire and the upcoming ‘Great Gatsby’ film based on Fitzgerald’s critically acclaimed novel. Flapper girls led the fashion of the Jazz Age sporting dropped waists, sparkly embellishments, feathers, shortened hemlines and extravagant headpieces.

50’s Inspired Short Wedding Dresses

Vintage chic continues to enjoy popularity among today’s brides. The lace detailing, narrow waists and full flowing skirts of the above styles are so perfectly feminine!

The boho chic style projects such an effortless beauty. I love the loose, relaxed design of these dresses and their graceful simplicity.

Love these as well. So chic and understated no?

I never imagined that 80s fashion would be revived the way it has been today- and you know what I am not a big fan of the trend. That said, I really love the coloured petticoats of the dress on the left. The dress above right is a really cute throwback to that era and the skirt-suit at the bottom is so divinely Joan Collins- how could you not love it!

Modern Inspired Short Wedding Dresses

Clean, minimalist and sexy is the mantra for that sleek, modern vibe.

More and more brides are opting for non-traditional gowns. I think the dresses above speak perfectly to the continued movement against convention.

Are you ready to rock a super cute, short wedding dress?
