Stylish Ways to Customise Your Short Wedding Dress


Colour is an easy way to show your wedding party a little bit more of your personality. There are so many ways to add colour to your vintage style wedding dress. Lots of our dresses now come in different colour ways from pinks and blues all the way through to champagne. So you can have a hint of colour or really make a statement with a very colourful wedding dress.

As above, why not add colour to your petticoats to add a real pop of colour in your wedding photographs. A petticoat accentuates the full skirt that a tea length dress can offer. Its a fun and flirty way to add glamour to your wedding dress.


As brides, we are all different shapes and sizes and there is a length of short wedding dress to suit all. Don’t fancy getting your knees out then go for a calf length tea length dress. Or want a ballerina length wedding gown to really wow your guests. Having your bridesmaids in shorter dresses than you also creates an instant impact.

Or even no sleeves, the choice is yours. Don’t forget the back of your dress too, by having your hair up it shows off the full detail of the pretty lace or satin in your dress.

Sashes, Belts, Broaches

Add a colourful sash to your dress for a dramatic look, match it to your petticoats or flowers. Some dresses have belts that you can customise in different colours. Or if you don’t like sashes or belts then change it for a broach to make your dress really personal to you.
