there were two things i was certain of when i got engaged
the guy i was going to marry
and that there would be mason jars at my wedding
lots of them
everything else seemed to fall into place
around all the mason jars of course
...and then came baby...

show some skin: short wedding dresses

i love the short wedding dress.

not only is it a great way to flaunt those toned legs you've been busting your butt to achieve, but it's the perfect time to showcase those fancy shoes you may or may not have spent a small fortune on. not to mention, the shorter hemline compliments us vertically challenged ladies so well.

i went with a floor-length wedding dress as i felt i would only have so many opportunities to rock one. i mean, the last time i sported a floor-length dress was at my senior prom. 'nuff said.

if you're afraid showing your knees during the ceremony is too risqué, you could always do a quick outfit change just before the reception into a shorter gown. you'll want all your guests to see your fancy footwork on the dancefloor.

know of any good designers churning out short wedding dresses?

I decided on a short dress very early on. After all, I'm 5'3" on my tallest day and my wedding was in August in NYC. There's no way I was going to risk a long dress and end up with a muggy and humid 90+ degree day.

The best collections I saw while scouring designers and boutiques were Ciarla Bride ( and Morgane Le Faye's Spring/Summer 2010 collection (

Happy Shopping!
