The tea-length dress is like the Goldilocks of the dress world - it's not too long, not too short, but just right. These dresses hit right below the knee and offer the best of both a formal long gown and a casual mini. This makes the tea-length dress the perfect match for mothers of the bride and mothers of the groom looking to wear something that's elegant and classy, but not "extra."

ieie Bridal has a substantial collection of tea-length dresses for every style and silhouette. Gorgeous details like lace, long sleeves, vintage-inspired style, and subtle color come together to create gowns that mothers of the bride and groom will feel beautiful and confident wearing. 

And don't forget our collection of shrugs and boleros for moms who want to cover up a bit more.

For the Romantic

Short Chiffon Lace Tea Length Dress

The elegance of this dress comes in the form of a lace bodice, scalloped neckline, chiffon skirt, and charming ribbon that hangs down the upper back. Although photographed in ivory, this dress can be customized to any color.

For the Love of Color

Powder Blue Tea Length Formal Dress

For a hint of color, consider this powder blue tea-length dress. It's not so bold as to steal the show, but it will stand out just enough in a sea of darker colored dresses. It also features a v-neck back and ribbon sash.

Sleeves for Days

Long Sleeve Lace Tea Length Dress

For the fashion-forward mother who prefers long sleeves, a tea-length gown featuring elegant, long lace sleeves and a full lace back will check the style and sophistication box. She'll also love the unique center split skirt detail. The above gown was photographed in blue, but Mom can choose any color she wants to create a look that suits her to a "tea!"

For the Whimsical Mother

Lace Hi Low Gray Tea Length Dress

A lace hi-low dress with long sleeves, corset back, and floral appliques on the bodice, skirt, and sleeves is perfect for the mother of the bride or mother of the groom who likes her style with a bit of whimsy. Plus, there is an historic, almost fairy tale quality to this gown (just look at the back!), making it a great choice for mothers attending a Disney-inspired wedding.
