Tea length is more classic but the high-low has more drama and flair to it! Personally, I like the high-low since you can have some legs showing and still have a train!

I love the high-lo. I know it’s more trendy but I think it’s a more fun, dramatic look.

Also, I’m 5’0” too and tea length is not a great look on me. I feel like it always makes me look even shorter.

For us “vertically challenged”, high-low is better.  Tea lengh tends to cut us off at an odd point vs. those blessed with more height.  LOL

I think the high-low one is gorgeous and a lot more bridal!

I vote for the high-low dress. I’m 5 ft. and a twig, but somehow always manage to look squat in tea-length dresses. I also think that your wedding day is the perfect opportunity to wear something exciting, and the high-low dress brings the drama while still managing to look very clean-cut and tailored.

High-low, I almost went for a high-low but it did not fit my venue.

Heaven :  I like the high low, and while I normally love belts, I think the skirt makes enough of a statement to not need a belt. If anything, I would add a very thin sparkly belt.

It’s so hard to judge without seeing them on you but I actually lean towards the tea length.   It has a 50s vibe and the stripes give it a point of difference

Heaven :  I don’t typically like high-low bridal gowns, but holy cow! That dress is dramatic and elegant! Love it! It’s definitely much more bridal looking.

Unpopular opinion: I much prefer the cut of the tea length dress, but the fabric makes it look cheap, it would be stunning if made in the fabric of the high-low dress.  

I vote for continuing the search.
