Weddings can be elaborate and beautiful with months of planning and preparation. But a wedding can also be spontaneous, and as small and intimate as a couple eloping. After all, the true beauty in any wedding is that moment when two people pledge themselves to each other. With the free spirited atmosphere that lends itself to an elopement, short wedding dresses are a wonderful alternative to the traditional long dress. Many designers are now creating dresses specifically for elopements. These dresses are fun, beautiful and elegant. They truly compliment the intimacy of an elopement.
A flirty and fun dress like this one by Maggie Sottero is perfect for an excited, spur-of-the-moment bride.
