Is Short Up Your Street? (literally)


View our new 'Urban Dress' tiktok (@mayandgracebridal)

A modern couple who want to celebrate their love by getting married their way, having their day, is definitely becoming more popular. Weddings don’t have to be excessive and cost you a small fortune, the idea of a lavish celebration is becoming less attractive for couples these days. There is no rule saying you cannot dress up, have a small intimate service and wander the streets and celebrate at your favorite pub with friends and family (not forgetting the dog!)


The versatility of short dresses is definitely alluring with an increase in couples opting for elopements and small celebrations. Big is not always better and traditional wedding dresses are not for everyone. This featured wedding dress by Freda Bennet is perfect for a bride wanting a relaxed, yet classy and modern look. Short wedding dresses are no longer just a vintage notion, but now a fashionable statement piece in the 21st century.



Pair it with ankle boots, heels or white trainers and a veil and you have the stunning modern urban look. In addition to this, the best thing about short wedding dresses as they are much easier to wear again or recycle into a new look, making them an excellent choice for a sustainable couple.








If you’re looking for a vintage bridal look a birdcage veil can deliver this style, or a simple pearl earring with some bold red lipstick can create a striking slant. Are you a couple planning a city elopement, or perhaps a bride out on the town on a hen night, short dresses are definitely your starting point. Add that to your wedmin!




With inspiration from this cool and dreamy shoot, don’t be scared to be authentic and unique. You can achieve a day that is not designed to impress or please tradition but instead make you and your partner thrilled, as after all… this is your day.
