Real Brides – A Short Wedding Dress to Dance In

London Bride

Before Angharad and Mark got married in South East London, our bride knew she wanted a wedding dress to dance in. The beautiful London Bride wore Bella by Lou Lou Bridal which is a stunning vintage style wedding dress. The couple married at Emmanuel Church in Sidcup and had their a reception at The Trafalgar Tavern in historic Greenwich.

“I always knew I wanted a tea-length dress; I have never liked all the fuss and restriction that came with long dresses”

Looking for a vintage style short wedding dress, Angharad had trouble finding exactly what she wanted as traditional boutiques didn’t stock a huge variety.  So when she found Cutting Edge Brides on Pinterest she knew she had found the best place to buy a tea length wedding dress.

“The range of dresses was incredible and they were all stunning.”

“I knew I wanted it to have a detailed back and to cover my shoulders. The rest I let the dress pick for me- as I was trying them on I realised which parts of dresses I liked and didn’t and Suzanne was able to guide me to my wedding dress as it ticked all the boxes.”

A Dress to Dance In

With the alterations made, Angharad had a bespoke short wedding gown that was exactly as she wanted. She had the blue panel and the lace overlay changed to all lace as she felt this reflected her style more. Then with a pair of Rachel Simpson T-bar shoes, her vintage style wedding gown was completed.

“I wanted to be able to dance, move around and have fun on my wedding day and for me that meant a manageable short dress that I wouldn’t trip over or worry about getting dirty.”

“A shorter dress helped for our first dance, we choreographed a routine to Everywhere by Fleetwood Mac.”
