Thanks to the success of the TV series Mad Men, the sixties are back! And they’ve taken the fifties along with them for the craic. The short wedding dress is a trend that saw a revival last year and it’s showing no sign of easing off. There’s a recession on don’t ya know – can’t afford to use too much material!
Here are some of my faves:
1. ‘Platinum’ by Priscilla of Boston
This dress is exquisite from front to back. Its lace-trimmed hem harks back to days of old and the diamante studded waistband brings it right up to date. $2500 – $3000 from Priscilla of Boston (forget what I just said about the recession!)
2. ‘Manhattan’ by Dolly Couture
Anyone who’s ever considered wearing a short wedding dress must surely have visited Dolly Couture’s funky website. The Manhattan oozes simplicity and elegance, for the bride who would prefer to wow with her shoes and her dress. $395 from Dolly Couture
3.Daphnie Retro-Inspired Tea Dress
This dress has a simple, yet very elegant style with pleated sash that ties flat at the back or can be tied into a prominent bow detail. This peach beauty is made to order $450+postage, Ellena Couture at Etsy.
