In homage to last week’s Mad about Minis article I received in my inbox from the ladies at Weddingbells, I wanted to share a few more short and sexy dresses that are posted on Often these dresses are 50% less than retail, helping you live and breathe the ‘save and splurge’ mentality. Hope these dresses strike your fancy!


More Mini Madness!

$1,000 One-of-a-Kind Strapless

This modern Size 4 strapless wedding dress was designed by Deborah Korosec of Studio Gang Boutique on Ossington's growing fashion strip in Toronto. If you’re looking for something flirty and fun, this dress is a beautiful option. Slightly bubbled on the bottom, the dress comes up a little on one side to show off some leg and is embellished with a silk flower.

$1,500 Priscilla of Boston Strapless

Falling just below the knees, this silk taffeta strapless Vineyard “Drew” is half-wedding dress, half-party dress!  If you’re looking to kick up your heels, this is my top choice.  Around $2,800 retail, this dress is now available for $1,500.

$1,900 Melissa Sweet “Petunia” Strapless

This funky Size 8 Melissa Sweet “Petunia” wedding dress has a bit of retro glam to my eye, and I love it!  With interesting ruching throughout the dress and a flirty bit of tulle peeking out the bottom, you can make a high fashion statement at your wedding without paying designer prices!

Until next week, find more local wedding classifieds, including gowns, bridesmaid dresses, shoes and accessories, plus tips and resources to plan a smart and savvy wedding, at SmartBride Boutique.
