I initially wanted a 50s-style tea-length dress, but ended up going a more 40s style route. You should check out Dolly Couture for a selection of tea-length styles in your price range. She also has TONS of pictures of real brides wearing her clothes, especially on facebook.

Have you seen Justin Alexanders? http://www.onewed.com/wedding-dresses/designer/justin-alexander/dress/strapless/a-line/tea-length/8465/

I’ve seen girls find it for close to your price… and you may be able to find a “2nd hand” one even cheaper than your budget!

JA dresses are AMAZING. The materials, workmanship and laces are so divine. The seamstresses were gushing over the quality and construction of my JA dress (9552).

ETA: The JA is the original to the moonlight above.

I got mine from Dolly Couture and I LOVE IT! I spent $600 on it, because I added quite a few customizations… but I could have gotten it for as little as $395.

Edit::: Sorry for the gigantic pic!

I got my JA as a sample for $100.  The skirt is alot fuller than it looks on the hanger, so you might ask the stores about buying the sample off the floor.

how about Justin Alexander or Michelle Roth…idk the prices on either, but their tea-length dresses are so pretty! You might want to check out David’s Bridal as well 🙂

#1 is JA, #2 is MR

You should also check out ebay!  Since wedding dresses are so frequently preserved, they are often some of the best-condition dresses in the vintage section…and they go for next to NOTHING.  Check out this one, going for $34.99 with no bids, ending in less than an hour…perfect white silk chiffon!

I’m sorry.  Hi, my name is veganglam, and I’m an ebay addict…if you couldn’t already tell.  I think about half my wardrobe comes from the vintage section of ebay and almost all of it from ebay itself.  I strongly believe in its power. Laughing  There are lots of really pretty, high-end dresses that pop up from every decade, so you should definitely take a look and you might be able to find a beautiful, one-of-a-kind vintage dress just waiting for you to scoop it up.  My prom dress was a poofy tea-length 1950’s prom dress from ebay and I still wish I had a reason to rewear it!
