This short wedding dress has been made to measure by Elizabeth Ayers for a bride who wanted to recreate a 1950’s look. The couture dress has been created from silk doupion, and features embroidered tulle and lace. Elizabeth Ayers also designed and made a matching bolero jacket, which perfectly complements the strapless dress and gives that fantastic retro silhouette.
Short wedding dresses are very fashionable at the moment, and brides love them for the ease of movement, alternative style and the fact that you can show off a great pair of shoes! Short wedding dresses work well for informal weddings, mature brides and second marriages. Or for anyone that doesn’t want the hassle of a full train and wants to have a good dance during the reception. This dress would also work very well for a young bride who really wanted to recreate a retro 1950s style, perhaps in ivory.
This dress has been created in gold doupion and ivory lace skirt and bodice, with rouched silk detail on the bodice front and back. The design would also suit other colours, such as all-over ivory with ivory lace. If you like the short wedding dress style, you can have your own design made, starting with a consultation with Elizabeth Ayers.
Elizabeth Ayers can create completely individual, bespoke or alternatively styled and coloured bridal gowns that you won’t find ‘off the shelf’. Our approach is that a wedding dress should show the bride’s personality and be a unique expression of her style, as well as flattering her figure in the best possible way.
