When it comes to wedding dress styles there are no rules anymore, apart from making sure you choose something you love. So, if you fancy keeping it short and sweet on the big day, read on for our pick of the best knee length wedding dresses.

The sweetest thing

Knee-length wedding dresses fall between the ankles and the knees and are ideal for all body shapes. Super flattering, shorter styles are often nipped in at the waist to create great curves while the cropped hemline shows off pretty ankles. And the best part? Your shoes will be on display all day long, so you can justify splashing out on a really gorgeous pair. So, why not kick up your (brand new) heels in one of these great shorter styles…

Turn on the charm

Ida is a charming tea-length dress with a sweetheart neckline, delicate three-quarter-length sleeves and a beautiful flouncy skirt. It has added bounce courtesy of a structured petticoat, a woven ivory lining and layer upon layer of soft, floaty tulle.

The illusion sleeves give delicate coverage and are finished with tiny floral appliqués and light-catching iridescent sequins for plenty of movement and understated sparkle. We think it looks amazing with a sparkling Estella belt, glittering Evie hairpiece and, for even more volume, our short underskirt. Alternatively, if you’d prefer something without sleeves, take a look at Polly instead.

Pretty and playful

Prefer something a little more contemporary? Playful Niamh features a pleated tulle bodice with flattering, draped straps and a tulle skirt with a modern raw edge. It also has on-trend exposed boning, which is layered underneath pretty embroidered floral appliqués.

At the back, there’s a sweet dipped V neckline and neat covered buttons, to balance out the full tulle skirt. This shorter style looks great with a glittering Aurelia tiara and our elbow-length Willa veil. It’s also a dream choice for a micro wedding or if you're treating yourself to a second dress for the evening.

A modern classic

Lastly, we have Edna, a romantic style that combines both traditional sophistication with the fun of a shorter length. Made from luxurious soft satin, it features large floral appliqués that give the design a touch of vintage glamour. The classic sweetheart neckline, combined with a sweeping full-circle skirt, also creates a beautifully flattering silhouette.

This understated style works wonderfully with a huge range of accessories, so you can create a look to perfectly suit your style. We love it worn with one or two of our short underskirts and an Estella belt to highlight the waistline. You can also wear it with our lacy Santana jacket for a totally different feel. So, why not head to your nearest store where you can mix and match accessories to find your totally unique look?
