There are some really cute tea length wedding dresses. I’m short and didn’t want to deal with lots of hemming and alterations, so my dresses are not floor length either. I don’t want to give too much away in case Fiance is looking over my shoulder!

lori.adams.589:  I had a tea-length wedding gown. I really liked the look but I felt like the length kind of cut-off my legs & made me look shorter (I’m barely 5’3″ so shorter is no bueno!!). I had the seamstress alter the length to just below the knee, so kind of in between a tea-length and knee-length. Plus I added a peeking petticoat so that added a smidge of length as well. Honestly, when the dress arrived at first I was really worried because the length was horrible looking on me, but the end product was amazing!
