I agree that tea length is adorable and will look very 50s, but like you said, you only get to do this once.  If you are unsure, I’d go full length on the gown, just to make sure you don’t regret your choice.  The gown itself is gorgeous and definitely speaks to the inspiration and style you are going for.

I suggest that you try both lengths on. You may find that because of your height, the tea length one might fall just where you need it to.

i bought that same tea length dress as my “dancing dress”.  i love it so much i had to get it, if budget allows, you should call around and get it.  it is so beaufitul in person.

the only thing is that when i tried it on, the store owner said the girl who tried it on before me was very petite (i’m 5’7″) so it looked like a long dress for her, whereas with my height, it looked like ankle-length as it’s suppose to be.

you might need to shorten it

I am getting the full length of that dress 8483- I am 5’9 and the dress engulfs me lol It’s really long. I am not wearing heels with my dress so I had to get it custom hemmed. If you do end up with the long version best advice: Get the designer to do a custom hem- WAYYYY cheaper! There is like 10 layers of tulle and for you to get it done at a shop would cost so much money!

I would go to a bridal salon and try on full length and tea length dresses to try to get a feel for what you like. I think that a tea length dress does look very 50’s inspired though..I think you would look like a 1950’s little doll. I say go for it..

Tea lenght!  I don’t have pictures but I did try it on and it was one of my top three, the perfect lenght of the tea lenght one totally makes the dress.

I’m 5′ and I find that tea length makes me look even shorter. Even if you can’t find that exact gown in tea length to try on, try on something similarly poufy in the right length to see how it looks on you. Tea length can definitely look really charming on the right person.

OMG I LOVE this dress and please, please go with tea length!! You can always have it hemmed to the right tea length for you, since you’re very petite! I think it it would be perfect with your 1950s themed wedding!
