@sienna76: You linked to my dress, that makes me so happy! 🙂

@GingerSweepea: So I’m obviously biased, but I think a tea-length dress is a great choice!

They’re easy to transport and you don’t have to worry about the skirt getting in the way or getting dirty (we’re doing sort of a forest wedding + I’m clumsy, so a full length gown would have been a disaster). I also think they’re perfect for intimate/less formal weddings. My big concern before I tried on my dress was that I would look like a hobbit in it as I’m short (5’3). However, I think a good pair of heels solved the issue. For a while I was planning to hem it, but then I decided I couldn’t be bothered with that on top of all the other stuff I need to get done before the wedding. 

My best advice, head to the stores and try out a few different styles to see if it works for you. If it does, it sounds like an excellent choice for the type of wedding you described!

I love tea length dresses.  Though I have a dress already in mind, I am keeping my options open.  I do find tea length is harder to come by.  Many people/stores don’t know the definition of “tea length” and try to pass off dress to or above the knee as tea length…

I LOVE them but I am biased, my dress was tea-length but is being hemmed to just a bit shorter (not quite knee-length either though) so it doesn’t make me look too short. But I’ve got a longer waistline & shorter legs too.  I think they are a classic look, easy to maintain, and they won’t keep you too hot or restricted feeling. I am also a clutz when I’m nervous so a long dress just wouldn’t do. I also didn’t want to have to worry about having a team to get me into the dress, and all the bustling and crap- just not for me. That and I love being able to show off my legs & shoes since I don’t have any cleavage whatsoever in any situation ever…. I got mine from Dolly Couture (LA & NY) custom made for under $800!

@sienna76: Thanks you! I’m trying so hard not to look on other dresses right now, don’t want to get any second thought about it! 🙂

@Glasgowbound: And I love it too – it’s a dream! Had I felt comfortable with a strapless dress I think this one would have been my number one choice!
