A Short Notice Wedding Wearing a Calf Length Wedding Dress

We really wanted to share with you today the beautiful August wedding of Megan and John. The held their ceremony at a private family venue in East Sussex. They had legally wed at a registry office in Tunbridge Wells a few days beforehand. From having to plan a short notice wedding to finding a calf length wedding dress, we’ve got all the details below:

The couple shared these wonderful snapshots of their day which were captured by Steve Fuller Photography. Their celebrant was Claire from Creating Ceremony who even worked in a request, from John, for a Vulcan salute at the end of the ceremony.

“I knew right from the start that I didn’t want a long traditional dress”

Megan and John made a relatively last minute decision to get married with only 7 months planning time. Luckily Megan found Cutting Edge Brides online and was close so could come for a consultation where we chatted about what she wanted in a dress.

“I found ‘the one’ within the first 4 or 5 I tried on!”

Megan chose Polly by Timeless Chic which is a gorgeous calf length wedding dress. With it’s sweetheart neckline covered in intricate lace, this is a stunning gown. The lace flows down onto the sleeves and is picked up in the full 1950s style skirt.

“I absolutely loved my dress for my wedding”

Timeless Chic is the in-house designer range created especially for our brides. Each design embodies the years of experience we have, knowing what brides really want from a short wedding dress.

Megan used our seamstress to make alterations and add some embellishment so that this was a truly unique short wedding dress.

“I had some alterations and embellishments added as well. I couldn’t have been more happy with the result.”

By having a calf length dress, Megan was able to move freely around their venue and equally show off her gorgeous crystal embellished shoes. This style of skirt has a lot of swish to it and looks very elegant and classic which suits every wedding day.

“I wanted to be able to move about easily and dance.”

She wore her hair half up with a crystal headband and pretty drop earnings. The flowers created by Lily and Mrytle flowers were classic and stunning. They had an English garden feel of roses, peonies and hydrangeas. The blush colours enhanced this theme and complimented Megan’s pretty dress.

“I had so many compliments on my dress and I felt amazing!”

John wore a grey three piece lounge suit with an open neck for a more casual look. He had a rose and peonies button hole to compliment the bride. His white shirt had colourful buttons to add a fun feel to his outfit and his pocket square was navy.
