Preppy bridal mini dresses
Inspired by the upcoming glossy reboot of The Talented Mr Ripley on Netflix, we are totally here for preppy short white dresses paired with low mules or ballet flats, and a cardigan elegantly draped over the shoulder.

Nothing says it's time to party like changing into a chic feather-trimmed mini dress and cute pair of heels. Flirty and fun, it's the perfect outfit to dance the night away.
White lace mini dresses
As a symbol of tradition, refinement, and elegance, lace will forever be the preferred choice for brides seeking a timeless look. Choosing a mini dress is lace is a great way to bring a modern spin to a classic bridal look.

You know us, we LOVE a statement sleeve, but wanna know what we love even more? A detachable sleeve! Sleeves of all kinds are huge right now, and none more so than the super versatile detachable sleeves that add an extra special touch and ability to change up your look for the evening reception.
