Hot. Steamy. Sunny.
That’s what the weather in Las Vegas is like during traditional wedding season, May through August. Vegas is even hot April through October, depending on where you are coming from. That makes it the perfect place to wear a stylishly short wedding gown!
If you are trying to stay on budget with your wedding, you may not have thought to look to non-traditional wedding gown sources for some short, modern wedding dress options. The 10 options below from ModCloth are perfect for summer wedding in Vegas – or spring or summer! These are also great options for a second dress, for use in a photo session or at your reception or after-party.
Pair the dress with a shrug or bolero jacket for the ceremony and then take it off for a more revealing look during the reception. The best feature, I think is that the dresses are completely re-wearable, for anniversary dinners or any other occasion to remind you of your wedding day.
The selections below range from $72.99-$487.99, with most priced around $120. What a steal!
A-line full skirted dresses are flattering for all heights and shapes and Dinner Party Darling is a perfect example. Alternating matte and shiny fabric with an accenting bow belt in front and detailed buttons up the back, you will look good from all angles in this pretty little party dress. I think it would look especially striking with a pair of boldly colored kitten heels while being wed against the golden backdrop of Red Rock Canyon at sunset.
This dress, Love You Ivory Day, features satin fabric, a v-neck with little cap sleeves, making it perfect for a little chapel wedding. Add a vintage brooch or birdcage veil and it’s Mad Men-tastic!
This form fitting mini dress called Two Way is reversible, but not in the way you expect! It’s colored two ways – white facing your groom while walking down the aisle, black to your guests as you head out the church door to your honeymoon!
Aisle Be There is a cream colored beauty by designer Trashy Diva and is anything BUT trashy! It offers a classic bustline to enhance your decolletage and a slight candlelight shimmer to the material. Gorgeous.
This frothy little number, Swan Dance, features a stylish cutout neck edged with sparkling sequins, topping off a soft tulle skirt and asymmetrical back. And you will not believe the price for this level of beading.
Are you a Palm Frond Bombshell? Or maybe just looking for a dress suitable for a tropical wedding or vow renewal at Mandalay Bay or Tropicana? Stop Staring brings you this halter necked 1950s dress with a tiki vibe.
Beautiful and Unique Snowflake is a Grecian styled gown perfect for sunset vows at Caesars Palace! With an airy drop hem currently in style but a sheer asymmetrical strap, this dress offers mega trend points but is still understated and classy. The “snowflake” in the name refers to tiny polka-dots all over the sheer overlay. Sparkling accessories would make this dress come alive.
I Do Declare…you lawfully wed! This Marilyn Monroe inspired dress with gorgeous halter neck and lace overlay would be perfect for a post-wedding shoot at the Neon Boneyard.
Clouds…or flowers? What do you see in Beneath the Clouds? This quaint layered dress by Orla Keily would be beautiful with a ribbon at the waist, or just on its own. Wonderful for weddings up in the sky like Stratosphere or on the rooftop of Platinum Hotel!
Made to Border is another modern black and white minidress, this time featuring lacy detailing. Equally at home at a chic in-suite cocktail reception or elopement, the black and white would go make it easy to co-ordinate with other wedding details.
If you didn’t see a little white dress you like, don’t worry, ModCloth has got you covered with over 100 other sortable white dress choices.
They also offer a range of stylish vintage inspired shoes, accessories and bridal party gowns if you already have your dream dress.
