The Short Bridesmaid Dresses for Every Style and Personality

From chic styles to gorgeous colours and pretty prints.

There’s one thing you should know about bridesmaids dresses. They can look however you damn please! If you want a polka dot tea-length with ruffles and layers of tulle. Go for it. If you want sleek, sophisticated and stunning in satin. Feel free. And this freedom extends to the length of your gowns. And short bridesmaid dresses can be an excellent option for a super modern bridal party.

Also, when we say short bridesmaid dresses, that doesn’t necessarily mean knee-length, or shorter. The midi length bridesmaid in particular is trending right now, and girls are loving its more modern look, along with the added coverage. A knee-length style can also be complementary on a wide range of body types, be it a fitted sheath, flared or floaty.

From sweetheart, halter-necks, and off-the-shoulder necklines to pastels, sultry velvet, and rich modern tones, here are our favourite short bridesmaid dresses for every girl in your bridal party.

I should probably introduce myself! I’m Polly, and I am the owner of NABBD (Not Another Boring Bridesmaid Dress…) based in the very pretty Wimbledon Park. We are a boutique bridesmaids shop in London specialising in dresses that are a little different from your average gown. They’re stylish, they flatter and your bridesmaids will actually want to wear them! In fact, we offer the type of dresses that your girls will keep as wardrobe staples for years to come, their go-to big event gowns. For us, a happy bridesmaid is a happy bride, because nobody wants to look back at their wedding photos and think, ‘she looks miserable in that dress’ or ‘that style just wasn’t right for her…’. No! Your bridesmaids are the most important people in your life (bar Mum and Dad obv) and they deserve a dress on your big day that they love.

What was the Inspiration for NABBD

Nabbd was born out of the biggest day of my life, so I personally understand just how important your wedding day is, and what it means to get everything just perfect!

There’s no doubt that getting married is one of the most exciting times of your life, however it can also one of the most stressful… When I got engaged back in 2011, I was determined to find bridesmaids dresses in London that:

  1. I could afford within my budget
  2. I hadn’t seen at the last dozen weddings I’d been to
  3. That weren’t available in high street shops (imagine a guest turning up in the same dress as your bridesmaids?!)

Also, as a busy, working woman with bridesmaids spread all over the country, I didn’t want to spend my weekends trawling the country trying to find the perfect bridesmaid dress for them.

It was with these philosophies in mind that Nabbd was born!

As I’m sure you’re aware, your girls no longer have to wear the same bridesmaids dress on your big day! Shock, horror – but it’s true! You can mix and match styles and keep the same colour, you can mix and match colours and keep the same style or you can mix and match everything! This means you can find a bridesmaids dress in London that suits each best girl perfectly. To do this at a high-street store would be a nightmare, because their dresses are not designed to compliment one another. But at NABBD, we have top designers from around the world that design their collections specifically to be played around with.

We are official London stockists of Jenny Yoo for example, and they have a huge selection of modern colours in every style they design, which makes it so easy to put a colour palette together for your girls. We’re also the official London stockists of Amsale, and their styles work so well together as a collection, you could just pick a colour or fabric and let your bridesmaids do choose the rest! It’s simple. Alongside these two amazing designers we have so many other brands that you just won’t find anywhere else. From Watters and Adrianna Papell to Hayley Paige and Bramley Rodgers – there’s literally something for everyone, in a price range that works for you.
