I think that the tea length is absolutely adorable and dress is so classic that having the shorter length wouldn’t take away from that.

However, because there are so many layers, you could possibly purchase the full length, and wear it for the ceremony, and with the detailing that drapes onto the top of the dress, have enough layers detached to be removed for the reception.  With the volume of the dress you could have 4 layers removable which would still leave plenty of volume for a shorter version underneath. The lace detailing would drape over adn you would never be able to tell when the top skirt attaches/detaches. I think it would be amazing!!

I wore the 8465 dress and I am only 5 2′. I altered the length. I loved it. I wore a birdcage veil and red shoes with bow. It was very 50’s but I still felt like a bride. I could hear everybody gasp when I came into the room. I loved my dress.

@ccarolynnc:

 

What did you decide??  I’m in the same situation and I totally understand. I go back and forth and back and forth. Ultimately you should do what makes you happiest – both are gorgeous and so different – so classic and lovely!! Is anyone interested in selling theirs? I’m interested in both versions and am trying to make it happen!!

That’s the dress I am thinking about getting! I’m 5’11. Get what you want. I had a dress war in my head. I don’t want a long dress. I’m having an outdoor wedding. You have to figure out what’s in your budget. That dress sells around here for $900 without alterations. Can you budget for two dresses? Are you going to regret it if you don’t get it? There are a couple other 50’s dresses I’m thinking about that are prettier and cheaper than the JA dress. I might not like the strapless and I’m leaning more towards the halter for a true 50’s pin up bullet style.

This is my dress & once I tried it on, I couldn’t imagine wearing another dress.

I LOVE the tea length one, but it didn’t suit me AT ALL (I’m so short!!!)

It looked SO stunning on this girl
