Short Sequin Dresses and Short Beaded Dresses for Weddings
A short sequin dress is a classic choice for so many wedding-related events and parties! Perhaps you're looking for a cute dress for a bachelorette party, a dress to change into for your wedding after-party, the bridesmaids in your wedding party are planning to wear short sequin dresses, or maybe you're going for an Art Deco themed wedding, where vintage-style short beaded dress would be the perfect look! These dresses are also the perfect choice for holiday parties and New Year's Eve celebrations. Here are a few of my favorites in shoppable format from Dress for the Wedding sponsors.

When to Wear a Sequin Dress
If you read this blog frequently, you'll see that we are somewhat hesitant to recommend that people wear full-on light-colored sequin dresses to weddings. This is mainly because there are so many super-short, super-tight sequined dresses out there. That club or mini cocktail style dress is usually not the best dress pick for most weddings, especially if it's a daytime wedding. However, I am all for some ornate beading on a dress for a formal affair, or a good amount of sequin glitter on a dress that is long or has an overall dignified cut and fits the occasion. We also especially love formal gowns, or sequin dresses for the mothers of the bride/groom.
As for the short cut way, way above the knee varieties of sequined dresses - I certainly don't mean to imply that I don't like them, in fact, I do! So, since I can't recommend these for wedding wear, I can and do wholeheartedly recommend them for a night of bachelorette debauchery, or for a spirited New Year's Eve party -- anywhere where glitter and slightly more raucous behavior is welcomed and encouraged.
