    @stephanie1989:  

    I think they can be beautiful, but I’ve also seen some photos where I believe a floor-length gown would have been much more flattering to the bride’s figure. I think it depends on the style of the tea-length dress and the bride who is wearing it.

    @stephanie1989:  I think you should have an option of “I personally don’t like them, but you do & it would look great on your big day!”

    I wore a tea length and LOVED it! I was married recently (technically summer, but close enough to fall) in a garden and felt my dress was perfect. The first pic has a weird angle so you can’t really tell it’s tea length but the second photo is better perspective. Go for it!

    Mine was a tad shorter than tea length, but close enough.  I had a backyard wedding and it was 85 degrees that day – my dress ended up being a better choice than I thought!  No tripping over a skirt, I was comfortable, and even able to play ping pong.

     

    my dress was simpler, but as you can see by sharkchomp’s dress tea length can still be feminine  and formal.

    They aren’t for me personally, but if you can pull them off then I think they’re fantastic!  My girlfriend wore one for her wedding a few weeks back and it looked amazing!  If you like them go for it!

    I LOVE them! I wanted to wear one for our luncheon wedding, but I fell in love with a floor length one!

    So I wore a tea length dress when we went out dancing that night!
