I’m a big fan of short Wedding dresses, they are still considered an unconventional choice but one Bridal design house whose embracing the lesser hem is label Tobi Hannah.  Their Spring 2013 Wedding dress collection “draws inspiration from vintage classics and silhouettes, paintings and colourful book covers fused with modern fabrics to yield classic short and tea length wedding dresses with a futuristic outlook.”  And here are my Bijou favourites…

An unusual title for a Wedding dress, Bratt, then again it is nice to be different.  The style is definitely a vintage classic but the scalloped hem and oversized flower belt provide a young and playful tone.

The Bass dress mixes brocade with organza in a classics 1950’s silhouette.  Halter necks seem to be in vogue for 2013 brides and this optional bow detail gives a charming twist to the look.

The most fashion forward look in the Tobi Hannah 2013 collection is this Sake wedding dress with its ruched floor length chiffon panels.

From the most fashion forward look to the freshest, I can’t get enough of this full chiffon skirt with its swirls of candy floss pink – simply scrumptious.

And I couldn’t resist sharing the only non-short or in fact skirted look of the 2013 collection, the Sour Brocade Wedding Suit.  Peplum is so hot right now and teamed with the drain pipe trousers it makes an enviable combination.
