Whilst typically wedding planners might suggest you opt for anything but items or styles dubbed ‘hottest trends’, there’s good reason to ignore that advice when thinking about 2022’s most dreamy bridal trend, taking over Pinterest boards everywhere.
Short wedding dresses are arguably the height of bridal style right now, giving their floor-length counterparts a serious run for their money as micro weddings, elopements and more relaxed celebrations continue to be on the rise following the pandemic. For those hoping to re-wear their dress, planning an uncomplicated town hall wedding, or who simply love the silhouette of all things mini, the short wedding dress makes for the perfect choice for both minimalist and maximalist lovers alike. And you’ll be in good company too! Celebrity brides including the likes of ultra-stylish Kourtney Kardashian, Lily Allen and Chiara Ferragni all opted for mini wedding dresses for either part, if not all, of their celebrations, bucking convention and accelerating the trend whilst doing so.
