Short Wedding Dresses | A New Wedding Dress Style | CHWV

From Keira Knightley to Natalie Portman, we take a look at the stars that have chosen to go against tradition, and go short and simple for their weddings.

With Keira Knightly, Olivia Palermo and Natalie Portman all favouring their wedding dress hemlines suitably higher than its traditional counterpart, we take a look at the best of the best in the realm of short wedding dresses.

Not only did she recycle her wedding dress five years on from when she originally wore it, Keira Knightley decided that less was definitely more when it came to the length of her hemline. The wedding was to be a ‘no frills’ occasion, which the pale grey Chanel tulle dress was certainly a nod to, and boy did she look ethereal.

We didn’t expect anything less from one half of the world’s most gorgeous couple, Olivia is as blessed in the fashion taste department as she is in her genes.

Choosing a Carolina Herrera ensemble for her ‘private’ day, the outfit consisted of a cashmere jumper, white shorts and a tulle skirt overlay. This is as fashion-forward of a Bride as they come, will this be something we see more of on the bridal catwalk?

Back in 2012, Natalie Portman had the foresight to go shorter on her wedding day, opting for a very bohemian tea-length Rodarte dress with sheer sleeves and ballet flats.

For those of us who don’t have the budget for a celebrity price-tag, we found these gorgeous shorter dresses that are a must for our wedding wish lists.
