When you think of the ideal wedding dress, it’s likely that you’re thinking about thick pieces of floor sweeping fabric. After all, these long wedding gowns seem to be the standard for your big day. But, we want to make one thing clear: they aren’t. Short gowns like tea-length gowns are a fun way to celebrate your wedding in style.
What is a Tea-Length Wedding Gown?
A tea length wedding gown (or any tea length dress really) should fall at just about mid-calf, or half way between your ankles and knees. Apart from this little rule, there aren’t a lot of strict guidelines! Tea-length gowns can vary a ton. With so many options, you’re guaranteed to find the perfect breezy wedding dress that is perfect for your style.
Pretty in Pink, or Ivory, if you Prefer
This pink tea-length wedding gown is seriously worthy of adoration. “The Rosalie” is beset with white lace applique and an illusion neckline, the whites play with perfect juxtaposition with the pink underlay and crisp rosy bow at the waist. While this dress is on point in pink, it can also be customized in ivory by the superior seamstresses at Ieie’s Dress Boutique.
A Sweetheart Lining Makes this Retro Wedding Dress a Solid Gem
Another tea-length gown adorned in intricate lace, the sweetheart lining to the high neckline of this wedding gown will make lovers of all things vintage totally swoon. A folded silk bow at the back of the waist gives “The Caroline” a very feminine innocence that is hard to find. Top this gown off with a birdcage veil and you’ll be a picture perfect classic beauty.
A Whimsical and Lacy Tea Length Wedding Dress
A dress of total lace overlay, these sweet wedding gown, dubbed “The Christina” is simply spectacular. Four-inch pleats add a little prep to your step when your walk down the aisle. The elbow length sleeves give this tea length wedding dress just a little bit of a modest touch.
1950’s Sophistication Meets Tea length Flirtation
It’s just so hard not to be in love with an illusion neckline. It hides any imperfections and gives your skin the look of a polished stone. The beauty of “The Hera,” however, is that the sheer chiffon doesn’t end with the illusion neckline but rather extends just past the hem of the underlay of the dress creating an ultra feminine and angelic twist.
