Tea length all the way! My bridal shower dress was originally like your bottom photos, but I had it altered so it was mid shin and it made a huge difference for me. I’m just a little  it taller than you and I found that the short version was a lot more flattering on me 🙂

Usually I’m not a fan of ankle length, but I think it looks ADORABLE on you!

@Jdchamp:  Mine became pufflier/more full once it was altered. Plus OP could always wear a petticoat.

@Jdchamp:  Tea length bride here too! Although I did shorten mine to a wee bit higher just because I felt it made me look too short. HOwever, I like the way the tea length looks on you, it seems to be hitting all the right places without making you look short. Much prefer tea-length over ankle, ankle length just makes me think someone grew out of their clothes too fast to find a replacement… 

And I second PP- to get that same fullness you would have to petticoat it. You could have some fun with it and get a colored one if you want!

Tea length, ankle length is awkward.

Tea length. It looks fun and natural. I do find the ankle length to look a bit awkward.

@Jdchamp:  Ah, that makes sense- don’t want too many shades of the same color! My tea style dress came with tulle in it as well but I added a petticoat as it polished the look and shape out quite a bit more…

I was a tea-length bride and I loved it. If you decide to get an extra petticoat, remember to get it before alterations so the poofiness doesn’t shorten it more.
