Who said all wedding gowns have to be floor-length? Recently, we’ve seen a rise in brides opting for a mini dress in exchange for the typical floor length ballgown.
From Kourtney Kardashian’s mini designed by Dolce & Gabbana to Tia Mowry wearing one as Melanie in the iconic wedding episode of hit show The Game years ago; mini wedding dresses are the elite choice for brides looking to showcase some personality and have fun with their bridal fashion.
Here’s a carefully curated list of some of our favorite mini wedding dress designs with every bride in mind!
“ELOISE” by Galia Lahav
This mini by Galia Lahav is minimally chic and freshly modern in design. The silk tulle-which is seen in draping, shoulder strap and side train-adds a flirty edge to the look while its ruching creates depth. And its corseted bodice helps highlight its wearer’s perfect shape.

“SDWG1095” by David’s Bridal
This mini is classic in approach and a bit of a nod to the 90’s aesthetics of bridal fashion. The floral appliquéd tulle sleeves mimic that of so many nineties wedding dresses and the satin fabric with ruching at the bodice provides the perfect extra details to the simplistic design. With a deep V-neck neckline and cinched waist, this design is bound to look great on any size.
