    I think they are really cute in theory buuut that length is really hard to wear. Definitely try some on and see if they work for you. Bonus, you get to show off some really awesome shoes!

    I love tea length wedding dresses!! I’m wearing a long one myself, but I’ve been to a couple of weddings where the bride was wearing a tea lenth dress and it was super cute! I really like the JCrew Organza one too, but the short one is really pretty.

    I LOVE tea length wedding dresses. I haven’t been dress shopping yet but it will be what I look for when I go in the fall. 

    I have these beauties saved on my computer:

    I love seeing short dresses. I don’t love all of them just like I don’t love all wedding dresses but I wouldn’t nix a dress just because it was short.

    @GeekChic: I saw the middle Oleg dress at DB a couple of weeks ago. It was “Meh”  I was not impressed with it at all, it looks cheap.

    I really wanted a tea length or cocktail length dress and originally I ordered a cocktail length dress, but it didn’t feel bridal to me (it is a bridesmaids dress, but still). So I ordered the full length style instead, it’s much better.

    I’m 5’4, so it doesn’t take much to make me look stubby, but I think you have to be at least 5’7 + to pull off a tea length dress, IMO. And, in the case of the dress you posted, have a long torso?

    Sunedlyt- Who makes that tea length dress?  So pretty. 

    I do wish there were a few more tea length options that were a little more streamlined.  I want to try one but I’m not sure how the full skirt will be on someone 5′ 3″.

    @katmumn: THIS! I think though, it would lose it’s wow factor if it wasn’t a full skirt. I feel in love with the Justin Alexander 8465, but I knew that I would have to take about 8 of 15 layers of tulle out of the skirt to even get it to wear it would look good on me!

    It seems that when you go with a short dress you either get the shift type that is straight up and down or you get the full skirt. I haven’t seen an in between.

    I think both look fabulous! I’d definitely try both styles on and see which one you lean toward. Then take into account all the other outside decision-making factors (what your Fiance said, the look and feel of the rest of the wedding, etc.). I think the big decision factor for me would be the tone of the rest of the wedding and which dress goes with it.

    I’m so in love with this one by Dolly Couture. But I’m not sure I can pull this length off.

    I’m totally falling in love with tea length dresses!  If anything is giving me dress regret its seeing all the cute tea length dresses!! Definitely seems like something that might not look good on all body types though :(.

    I kind of love tea length, but I have to be careful about where skirts hit–they can make me look shorter.

    Still, I love the vibe!
