I like it! Are they the shoes you’re going to wear? They look really good with that length skirt 🙂

Adorable!! Glad you got to keep your gown – I would even just go in the full ballgown if you wanted to but it’s gorgeous long or short! X

I really like it and think once the alterations are done and you can see the skirt smoothed out without that layer it will be beautiful! I actually like it better than the original because it highlights the beautiful lace hem that you just don’t see as much with the ball gown. 

I have to say though I disagree with PP about adding more volume with a petticoa. Yes, it has lost the volume of a ball gown but I think it has the perfect volume for a tea length.

I normally don’t like tea-length dresses on people for a wedding but this one is GORGEOUS.  It might be my favourite tea-length look!  You’ll look beautiful day of!

Stunning! The shape is beautiful and it’s really flattering! Love the bodice

Looks like it’ll be a lot more comfortable to move around in than the ballgown version as well!

JTbridetobee: Love tea length dresses and it will look sooo pretty! I do love your dress as it is though and think you can wear it as it is to a courthouse. The lace is beautiful!

Beautiful gown!! I even like it short in the front and long in the back.
