Wedding gowns come in different lengths but gowns that just graze the floor are by far the most common style of Bridal Wedding Dresses. However, various lengths will fit different brides so the length does not really matter in the long run. What is important is for the bride to choose a dress that will show her personality, no matter if it is floor length or a mini. But of course it has to suit her height.
Floor length gowns are usually worn for formal weddings because they make a bride look elegant. The hem barely touches the floor and your shoes should not be seen when you are standing. Ballerina length has a full skirt that is often made from tulle and a hem that sits just above the ankles. It is a fun and flirty length that is suitable for a more relaxed wedding. The Ankle length is hemmed at the ankles. It is great for outdoor weddings and since the bottom of the dress does not touch the floor, your gown will not get dirty. Another style is the Asymmetrical length also known as hi-low. The hem at the front of the dress is usually at the knee and it gradually becomes longer at the back. This dramatic type of length is preferred by modern, trendy brides.
There is also the Knee length dress which falls to the knees. This is suited for a more informal wedding like a cocktail wedding and a summer wedding. The Tea length has a hem that comes to the bottom of the calf. It is a style that is both casual and sophisticated and usually worn as a second wedding dress. The Thigh length dress or mini skirt ends above the knee and is suited for casual weddings such as a beach wedding. A bride who has beautiful legs can wear this short, fun style.
