Thumbs up to this short wedding dress! The bride found it at BCBG (it's just a regular white dress).

Thank you for posting these! They were a great couple and I loved her look. So appropriate for the relaxed, sweet feel of their wedding.

She looks adorable!

i JUST saw this on Green Wedding shoes and fell in love!

I probably should get some work done today, but WHO CAN with all this blogging goodness? :)

SO beautiful! I was married in a short off white silk dress...barefoot on the beach. (I eloped 6 months into planning) I found it at Banana Republic!

amynicole said...

what a BEAUTIFUL dress and bride! the sleeves are extraordinary! even though the dress is not fitted it is still so flattering!

Dancing Branflake said...

Beautiful! And just so you know, Martha Stewart is doing a special today on J Crew wedding dresses. I know how much you love J Crew and weddings!

Casa Bella said...

Love the short wedding dress. In fact, I love any bride that breaks the mold. Kudos to her. Thanks for posting.

Post Grad Hair Cut said...

It is gorgeous. I love the lace. I would definitely consider a shorter dress for myself.

Googlover said...

clever idea. I think the short dress really works for petties.

Tanya (a Taste of T) said...

Beautiful dress! Great idea

Hollie said...

I love that. I've always thought BCBG dresses could double as wedding dresses.

bashtree said...

Sooooo pretty, I love the view from the back with her arms raised.

theycallmekatie said...

Is the dress still available? I want it!

Julie (brown eyed belle) said...

I love it!! So different and classy!

Christina said...

Really cool. It looks so vintage for BCBG.

Caroline said...

I love the flower in her hair. The bride looks beautiful.

katie, i didn't see it on their site (although they have similar styles). you could alwayscall BCBG? xo

carina said...

Beautiful dress - such a relaxed feeling about the couple and the wedding. Love it. And love the belly shots BTW!! So funny and beautiful. Little baby boy will love to look at them when he gets older. There is nothing more wonderful than to look at pictures from when your parents were expecting you and see that they were drunk with joy!

rebekah said...

I LOVE the idea of longer sleeves on the wedding dress, kind of a fresh look after the oh-so-popular strapless gowns.

Carissa said...

she looks gorgeous! I love the sleeves. even though it is just a regular white dress, I think the pretty lace sleeves give it a bridal look. I'm not sure if I'd wear a short wedding dress, but every time you post one as gorgeous as this, I start to change my mind :)

Melinda Josie said...

I saw this post earlier, and fell in love with that sweet little dress! I'd like to make a lace cover-up similar to the top of this dress to go over my own. It's so sweet and barely there.

Molly McGonigle said...

Ahhh...I love this idea for a wedding dress. Cheers to finding alternative types of dresses/venues for weddings.

The French said...

Love that! So cute.

btw - as you may know, Erin is due around the same time as you...just did a post about a killer lasagna that we made and then froze for her 'post-birth-can't-find-the-time-to-cook-anything-but-i'm-hankering-for-something-homemade' phase. Not sure what you and Alex are prepping in regards to that, but just an idea. Makes a ton:)

Joanna Goddard said...

thank you SO much, The French!!!

Haltrup said...

Amazing dress!

Analese said...

Love love the dress! Super vintage but simple. So cute!

Ashley said...

This is lovely!

Keep posting wedding stuff- even though you have a baby on the way, I am planning my wedding for October 2011- long ways away, but I love your ideas & style.

Faux Naif said...

these are beautiful! i'm going to wear a short dress when i get married.

Roxy Te Owens said...

The sleeves are the best part..so delicate..so lovely!

Sarah Jane said...

love the short dress, there is something playful and summery about it, and this one has a 20s kind of flare that i adore;)

BusyB said...

wow not often do you see a short wedding dress! What a unique style, I like it!

Kristin Hjellegjerde said...

What adorable relaxed love they show in these pictures!

Paige said...

what a lovely idea! she looks very bridal, even without the floor length dress.

Ana Patricia said...

That is such a pretty ans simple dress. Less is more right?! My friends just got married recently and they had such a charming ceremony. I really think you would like the pictures. But the amazing thing is that she organized this beautiful wedding in only 7 weeks!!

CC Taylor said...

Amazing photos they really captured the mood of this wedding.

amber said...

I think it's beautiful. She looks very relaxed, comfortable, and pretty. I love her hair, too. Making me contemplate some kind of fringe. (Bangs -- I'm Australian!)

Ashley said...

I love the idea of a short wedding dress. And even while it compromises on length, this one doesn't compromise on appropriateness at all. I can't imagine this dress not being worn at a wedding. It's gorgeous!

Amanda said...

Love the style of the dress! I kind of want it for myself (not as a bride). Could style it would brown leather accesories maybe... have to see if it comes in other colors.

Maki said...

I can't stand it - some ladies know exactly what they look beautiful in it... Pretty photos and lovely couple!

xoxo

kelly ann said...

i remember seeing this on olivia leigh's site the other day and thinking how DREAMY that dress is! it's so simple but it's looks so perfect on her!

MyLittlePhotographs said...

She looks absolutely stunning, and these pictures are beautiful!

Shine Little Light* said...

I wore a short wedding dress, that was just a regular white dress too. It was my three year wedding anniversary the other day so I put photos on my blog here: http://shinelittlelight.blogspot.com/2010/05/wedding-ceremony.html

YesBride said...

I love this dress. Looks super cute. I'd wear a short dress if I had the legs. We have some short ones on http://YesBride.com

Emelie - C'est LA vie said...

Sometimes the simpler the better, huh... Such a pretty dress, such a pretty bride.

Christine said...

So pretty. This would be perfect. I'm not a big fan of long gowns and trains. It looks so comfortable and perfect for dancing.

Bringing Pretty Back said...

It is so wonderful to see things getting simpler. I love this.

soon lee said...

this is beautiful. and Jo, you are so huge now! things have been crazy at our stores - haven't been able to visit blogs like we used to. we hope (want to) make a comeback! sending you all our love, good luck with your number one.

Melissa said...

Great Photos. I love the lace sleeves of the dress. I think the shorter dress for an outdoor summer wedding to be a great idea. And think of all the fun accessorizing and picking the perfect shoes.

Amandolin said...

That dress is absolutely lovely. I have been unsure of short wedding dresses, having mixed feelings...But that dress.... I adore the sleeves!

A Merry Mishap said...

So beautiful! Sometimes I wish I could marry my husband again just to be able to wear another wedding dress, maybe like this!

Shelb and Ry said...

this is really pretty! I love the short dress... This bride pulls it off beautifully.

Anna Patricia said...

Everyone is oohing and ahhhing... because it really is an awesome dress! I can imagine my hippie sister wearing this for her wedding.

thepaperdialogues said...

simple and sweet :)

executive training program said...

Adorable. I'm going to try and sew one similar based on a top I have with same sleeves.

THESTREETFASHION5XPRO said...

olivia rae said...

Chelsea Robbins said...

i love when people think outside the box and do something original-like wearing a gorgeous short wedding dress such as hers.

she' is stunning

Wahzat Gayle said...

it is really sweet!

Damaris said...

than you will die over this dress http://rummeybears.blogspot.com/2009/12/blog-post_6796.html

Rachel Follett said...

Love it! So casual and chic. :)

Victoria said...

It's beautiful - but she would probably look great in anything! x

This dress is adorable but you have to be really slim to wear it. It is a bit baggy and a little bit bigger girls might look even bigger in it. Still it's gorgeous!

Honeymoon registry said...

Wonderful photos! I love the dress. It is so adorable. It's simply yet elegant.
