4. Short and Cute

Short is sweet and chic, especially when it’s a short A-line wedding dress. This was a wonderful choice for the couple’s send-off in a football stadium!

14. Glitzy and Vintage

Two themes we loved seeing this year: industrial and Art Deco. This bride mixed the two together for a speakeasy themed celebration and amped up the “va-va-voom” factor with a glitzy and vintage number for the reception.
