Long enough to just skim the kneecap yet short enough to verge on sassy, shorter styles are all the rage this season.

The following looks will bring out your inner fashionista by combining the highest degree of trendiness with just the right amount of classic style.

The Strapless Dress

A strapless or halter top short prom dress will suit the hourglass figure. With this figure you can choose a dress that is tight fitting because it will really show off your curves.

Beach Wedding – Choose A Simple Beach Wedding Dress

Many couples are considering alternatives to the usual church wedding and for some, this means marrying on a beach. Beach weddings are intimate and highly romantic, but they also offer other wonderful perks which many people are a little surprised to discover. Having a beach wedding means you’re free to wear something less formal. It’s a fun and relaxing environment to be in, so you will need to wear something a little more casual and comfortable, even if it is your wedding.

Beach wedding dresses are typically much shorter than traditional dresses. You are expected to run in the sand barefoot while wearing the dress so it definitely cannot be too restricting. An ideal length of a beach wedding dress is about knee length. Since the weather tends to get very hot at the beach, it’s best to wear a dress that is made with very light fabrics such ascotton eyelet, chiffon, Georgette, crepe, cotton organdy, voile and organza should be a better option for a wedding dress for the beach.


If you choose one of the long beach wedding dresses, make sure you will have it slightly off the ground for easy walking. Most brides have shoes, but in the case of a beach wedding, sandals or bare feet might suit you better. The designs of beach wedding dresses usually have a flare for softness like with chiffon. A satin dress is beautiful, but may become heavy in the wind and sun. You want your wedding to be perfect so plan every possible need.


Wearing a bikini on your wedding day is definitely a no-no. Imagine the look on people’s faces when you say “I do”. Instead of looking at your happy faces, they’d be frowning at your skimpy outfit. Also, never go for the overly-designed Hawaiian dress. Though it gives you the beach vibe, it definitely doesn’t make you a beautiful bride! Keep these types of dresses on your summer getaways, not on your wedding day!


Remember, your dress should be a reflection of who you are and it should also reflect the environment you are marrying in. A beach wedding embraces a love of nature and this should come through in your wedding dress.
