I’ve been obsessed with weddings (especially the dresses) since I was 8 years old. I’ve had wedding magazine subscriptions since then, an extensive wedding board since I made my Pinterest account over 4 years ago, organized folders with pages upon pages of wedding-related stuff.

We have been loving short and cocktail-length wedding dress styles since our site launched. They channel the 1940s to 1960s in all kinds of amazing, vintage ways. And fabulous dress designers, House of Mooshki, are PROS at channeling those vintage vibes. From delicate lacy sleeves and full cocktail skirts to color underlays and beautiful embroidery, they are able to capture a moment in time that will up the ante on your whole wedding look.
