28 of Our Favorite Short Bridesmaids' Dresses
While midi and floor-length styles may be at height of bridal fashion, there was a time when short bridesmaids' dresses were the norm. Although they may be less popular than longer silhouettes, there are so many benefits to outfitting your favorite ladies in a short dress: from allowing your girls to show off their killer shoes to making sure they're comfortable from start to finish, short bridesmaids' dresses are a great option for spring, summer, and less formal weddings.
You can find short bridesmaids' dresses in a variety of different styles, and you'll quickly learn that there's a cocktail-length number to suit nearly any aesthetic. If your wedding style is more classic, a simple chiffon dress with a sweetheart neckline or an architectural A-line will fit the bill. Romantic brides, on the other hand, may gravitate towards lace or dresses with ruffle details. Consider yourself and your best girls trendsetters? From cocktail-length dresses with V-necklines to asymmetrical options, you'll find many cool, unique short looks here, too.
Another reason to love short bridesmaids' dresses? Your attendants will find they have far more opportunities to re-wear a short number than a long gown. If you choose something casual, in a solid color, and in a fabric that doesn't scream "bridesmaids' dress," your girls will surely thank you. And if you're letting your bridal party select their own dresses, know that pairing one short dress with another couldn't be easier. Give your girls length requirements, a color palette to stick to, and fabric options you love, and they'll come back with perfectly coordinated looks.
