Above is the dress I got, Its for a desitnation wedding as well, I wanted something light but bridal. I do have to say I tried on a few hi-low dresses and did really like them too, Short enough in the front to walk in sand without tripping, but Juuust long enough in the back to look like a long gown. But the thought of having a train that looked like kitty litter at my reception was enough to sell me on this one!

@Grossern:  Thank you.  Try them all on! Thats my big advice. I went in thinking I wanted a mermaid dress, Long with lace, corset back and blah blah.  The lady at the store pulled so many dresses that I looked at and said “No way” Tried them on for kicks and was SO glad I did. 

 Keep an open mind, And don’t be upset if you pull your dream dress off the rack and look like a mess in it.  Keep your options open, just because the places I went too didn’t really have a big selection of short dresses available for me to try once I came to the conclusion that its what I wanted. It was slim pickin’s but you will find the one!

I tried on the Maggie Sottero Isadora Ann (: I ended up going with the full length version (Isadora Marie), but I’ll still share pictures! The last picture shows the bodice on my actual dress, but it’s the same as the tea-length version.

@Theonetime: This is “my” dress and it was a great choice for our destination wedding! I hope you have a wonderful time in your CMK513 on your wedding day!

OP – travelling with a dress can be a bit of a struggle. I can’t imagine dragging a full-length gown across the North Atlantic! Kudos to all those who does, but I was so happy that I could carry/hang my dress without having the bottom of the bag sweeping the floor all the time. Now, if you’re having a beach wedding – I also think you’ll be much better off in terms of temperature in a tea-length. Lastly, they don’t get dirty unless you spill something on them. I didn’t have to think about my skirt at all during our wedding day and that was great – especially since they were re-doing the street outside my grandma’s house and had removed all the asphalt! A full-length dress would have been all dirt stained way before I even walked into the church, as it was it’s spotlessly clean even though I never really paid any attention.

@Grossern: Definitely. We pinned up the bottom part of my gown bag so that it would fit the dress, full-length I couldn’t carry it without the bottom brushing the floor. Also, even if you can hang your dress in the plane(s), the closets are small and you would have to bunch up the skirt if you went for a longer version.

I couldn’t find a tea length lace that I liked so I went tulle instead with an added halter strap. A couple bees have this dress too! Our ceremony wasn’t on the beach but we did take sunset photos on the beach. It was a bit of a pain to travel with but well worth it!!
