5 Gorgeous Ankle Length Wedding Dresses

5 Gorgeous Ankle Length Wedding Dresses

For some brides, comfort and mobility are paramount. With that being said, floor-length gowns may not be the ideal choice, even if they are traditional when it comes to bridal style. 

Instead, ankle-length wedding dresses are an excellent choice for brides who want the drama and elegance of a long dress but don’t want to risk tripping or catching the hem of their dress on everything. They’re also a great elopement or destination celebration choice to go with. 

Here are 5 of our favorite ankle-length wedding gowns.

This lovely Jenny Yoo fit-and-flare dress is very bridal but still low-maintenance with princess seams and lace sleeves. It’s a great choice for a second-wedding, vow renewal, or our more sophisticated brides. 

One great feature of an ankle-length gown is that you can wear shows that were meant to show off. So many times we have our pumps hidden beneath the layers of our gowns but with Providence – you can show them off.

It’s easy to move in. It’s easy to style. And it’s a versatile design as well.

Affordable and full of style, this Glitter Midi is a great dress to rock throughout your wedding reception – don’t you think? It comes in a large variety of sizes and rush orders are an option if you’re in need!

This dress features delicate, draping sleeves, a sweetheart neckline, and a beautiful tulle skirt that falls right at the ankle. It’s the perfect dress for dancing and showing off those shoes!

Its bodice is corseted so you’ll feel secure and confident. And the skirt is made with glitter tulle – you can’t beat that kind of shine!

With large pleats and a dainty bow at the waist, this Rebecca Ingram ball gown is clean-cut and timeless. But it has a youthful vibe that we cannot get enough of, it’s truly a design for celebration. 

Again, your shoes get to be shown off and a part of the focus of the ensemble. Make sure you compliment the color of this satin beauty as well – because it’s less-than-traditional with its golden hue. 

This gown is an older design, but really popular among our brides. You can buy second hand and save some of your budget! 

Galvan London, Pandora Midi

Galvan London can be found through Net-A-Porter, a great stop to buy designer goods and designs, and we love that kind of accessibility for a dress at this high of quality. 

This Pandora midi design is stunning, yet simple. It’s a satin, halterneck dress that is both sexy and sophisticated all in one.

It would be a great choice for an evening ceremony or even as a reception dress as it’s a bit more comfortable and relaxed than a ball gown would be.

Claire Pettibone is a personal favorite of ours, specifically because of the nuanced details and uniqueness in all the designs. And, because of the overall vision which is full of romance. 

Even this skirt is filled with bridal style, yet offbeat and bohemian appeal. The skirt hits just at the ankles for easy walking and dancing, of course. 

We love the wedding-inspired lace and those 3D flowers are stunning and photograph so beautifully! Add some color or a petite veil to finish this look off.
