While many brides dream of a formal wedding gown that will make them look like royalty on their special day, some brides wants something less formal. A short, informal wedding dress can fill the bill for such brides.
Short informal wedding dresses are available with all types of hemlines. Whether you want a miniskirt or something a bit more modest, you will be able to find the perfect dress for you.
Tea length dresses are commonly used for this purpose, and some of them are as beautifully embellished as full gowns. Some brides prefer a tea length dress because they feel it will be easier to move and to dance than it would be if they were wearing a gown that swept the floor.
Beach weddings and garden weddings are just two examples of when a short informal wedding dress would be appropriate. A wedding that takes place in the afternoon can also be much less formal than an evening wedding and a shorter dress would work well.
Sometimes, brides who are getting married at the courthouse don’t want a formal wedding gown, but they do want a dress that will make them feel special on their big day.

Another option is to find a seamstress who will work with you to create the exact look you want in a short informal wedding dress. Some brides that that such as dress will not be as special but, as mentioned earlier, the dress can be as plain or as elaborate as you choose.
