Cocktail Length

By definition, the hemline of cocktail length dresses lands just above the knees. (See also: Knee Length)

Cocktail Length Wedding Dresses

Cocktail length dresses are usually worn by brides having informal weddings and destination weddings. (See "Informal Short Wedding Dresses" for more information on informal wedding dresses.)

This above-the-knee style is also a great option for a second dress to wear during the reception, as they allow a bride to move much more freely than any floor length gown.

Cocktail length dresses are also great for a newer wedding tradition, where the bride changes into a "going away dress," before leaving the reception. This is a great option, if you want to celebrate your wedding with a special "First Date as a Married Couple," or if you plan to leave for your honeymoon directly after the reception.

Bonus: You can re-wear your cocktail length wedding dress on anniversary dates!

Informal Wedding Dresses

From intimate courthouse ceremonies, to playful garden ceremonies with a more relaxed, informal feel, the cocktail length is a great silhouette for informal wedding dresses.

Cocktail Length Bridesmaid Dresses

Of course, the cocktail silhouette also works great for bridesmaid dresses! Because of its shorter hemline, it is more commonly used in a less formal setting, such as a semi-formal wedding. But it is certainly not limited to be used as such!

Noir by Lazaro Bridesmaid Dress NZ3179 is a versatile style, and is a fabulous example of cocktail length bridesmaid dresses:
