We’ve already told you how in love we are with the idea of wedding dresses with shorter hemlines, and now we’ve done some digging to show you exactly what we’re so excited about.

Not only are short dresses fun, flirty and a bit unexpected, but they allow brides of all styles to find a gown that really suits their personality. Floor-grazing frocks are not for everybody, so we’re totally onboard with hiking up the hemlines and showing off a bit of leg.

To inspire your dress shopping, we perused through the recent bridal collections and pulled out a few pretty numbers—from the likes of Marchesa, Jim Hjelm and Vera Wang—that we’re into right now.

And if you don’t want to go short for your wedding, a few of these would make for killer rehearsal dinner dresses, too.
