Short Wedding Dress Alterations

Short Wedding Dress Alterations

Every bride that comes into our boutique has her own individual style and so her wedding dress must reflect this. Our brides often come to us knowing that they want a short wedding dress and have ideas on how to customise it. We love nothing more than seeing a bride leave knowing she has chosen the perfect dress for her wedding day. There are lots of ways for short wedding dress alterations to be made so that each dress is exactly as the bride wants it.

Customise Your Short Wedding Dress

There are lots of alterations that can be made to a tea length wedding dress to make it unique to you. From adding sleeves or removing them to changing the style of the skirt or colour. There are so many ways to make a dress bespoke. Some of our most common alteration ideas are below:


You may see the perfect dress expect you would like longer sleeves (or shorter sleeves). Or change the look completely with no sleeves, the choice is yours.

Bella by Loulou brides at Cutting Edge Brides

Our bride Shelley had the sleeves removed completely and turned her beautiful Bella wedding gown into a strapless short wedding dress.

Length of Short Wedding Dress

Our dresses already come in a wide variety of lengths as explained in our blog post here. From on the knee, tea length and all the way to ballerina and if none of these suit, you can always choose a length of your choice.


Bella by Lou Lou Bridal is one of our dresses with ivory corded lace over a pale blue skirt. But as our bride Angharad showed, this can be removed completely and be all lace instead. This makes a stunning alternative to an already beautiful.
