I love things are short, sweet and to the point; just like myself. Let's be honest: long gowns simply are not for everyone. Some brides want something different, something nontraditional, something full of spunk and/or whimsy. For those brides there are the short gowns! Gowns that normally hit around knee-length and instead of being worn to rehearsal dinners or bachelorette parties (although they are perfect for those as well) are worn as wedding dresses.
Normally when I picture a bride wearing a short gown I think of Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw getting married to Mr. Big. I mean obviously her short dress didn't have the Pnina Tornai flair that we all love, but that's just the image that comes to mind. Mostly this is due to the fact that Carrie had finally decided to do things her way. That's what I think of brides who wear short gowns: they decided to get married on their terms.
So now that you've decided to go with a short gown, you know that Pnina Tornai has some exquisite options for you. In fabulous Pnina Tornai fashion her new 2019 LOVE by Pnina Tornai Collection has three gorgeous short gowns to choose from. A sleek crepe number for your va-va-voom bride. Then two sweet lace numbers, one with a keyhole back and the other with an elegant button-up back. There's also a fun and whimsical take on the short gown from her Wind Upon Water Collection that is like the short version of a handkerchief gown. You really can't go wrong with any of these choices.
I know what you're thinking but no, you don't have to have a Vegas wedding just to wear a short gown on your wedding day. Wear what makes you happy and stay true to your own personal style. Mixing it up is always fun and I love when brides choose go the nontraditional route. It's your wedding and if a short gown is what floats your boat then I can't wait to see your flaunting those gorgeous gams on your wedding day. Work it honey!
