Midi white bridesmaid dresses
Midi dresses are so adaptable, making them a fashion-world favourite.

Not only that, short dresses are good fun to twirl around in on the dance floor, making for fantastic wedding photos, too. A white, short dress is in equal measure fun and elegant, quirky and chic, edgy and in line with your theme.
