When it comes to finding the perfect wedding dress, considering what length you want is a big factor to think about. Sure, most brides tend to lean toward a floor length gown with a cascading full train, but that might not be your vibe, and we give you full permission to explore other lengths!
Midi length wedding dresses are really popular amongst non-traditional brides, but there can be a little confusion about what makes a dress midi length. It’s often confused with being a knee length dress, but that’s not the case! The classic midi dress is a bit longer, in fact, and fully covers up the knees. It can even extend to the middle of the calf. The length is elegant and classy, making it an excellent choice for something more conventional like a church ceremony. They’re also great to wear for a reception afterward because they allow you to move more freely than a floor length gown, which eliminates the need to purchase two dresses for your wedding!
Because of their versatility, wedding dresses in this length are suited to all seasons and styles. Depending on the style, midi gowns can come in form-fitting or free-flowing styles, with strapless or long sleeves, modest or provocative, with thigh high slits or plunging necklines.
Here at Brides by Solo, we’re pretty fond of midi length wedding dresses and wanted to show you some of our favorites today from True Bride!
