16 Short Wedding Dresses For The Alternative Bride

And the bride wore Dolce. Last year, when Kourtney Kardashian wed Travis Barker in Portofino, she wore not one, not two but three wedding dresses courtesy of the Italian luxury brand. And all three — including one black iteration — hit above the knee.

The short wedding dress, a once-controversial choice but now a very viable option for modern legal ceremoniesdestination weddings and elopements, has been growing in popularity. According to a recent report from AskGamblers, searches for ‘short wedding dress’ rose by 231% worldwide the day after the Kravis wedding.

As ceremonies continue to become a lot less traditional, brides are opting for mini or midi dresses rather than full-length, froufrou gowns. So whether you’re looking for your own bridal dress or just browsing for fun (*raises hand*), have a scroll of 16 short wedding dresses that we’re loving for the unconventional bride.
