I’m going for tea length! My mom is making it for me from a vintage Vogue pattern. No photos yet as its only just been started, but I always imagined wearing tea length, so I’m happy we are able to go with that. A lot of brides I’ve talked to have said they were really hot under their full length gown, don’t want to be worrying about that!

jldavivc :  Actually no.  I got the dress from Unique Vintage for just over $70 (online, located in the LA area).  My mom modified the straps from a halter as I didn’t want a big knot under my hair.  The crinoline was from Amazon for $40.  Like I said, I do wish I’d had it hemmed so the crinoline showed more, plus if it were a more expensive dress I’d have had the torso fitted.  Not really worth it at that price but I wish my photog had told me to stand up straight or pull my skirt down sometimes!  It stored beautifully and since it’s cotton, I can just dump it in the washer/dryer if need be.  One of the straps tore (seam) by the end of the night but I think we had it pulled a bit too tight with the modifications, so our bad.

Short dress definitely sounds the way to go for running around Vegas.  Check out the website, there were several more options that were pretty great.  Or if you’re more creative, Tatyana is where I got the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses and there is a white one of the same style with white polka dots.

These are gorgeous! I hunted for a tea length dress I could change into, but no such luck.

I almost went tea length, but in the end didn’t.  I do love the look though!  I love the dresses that PP showed, keep more coming!  I love the pics!

This is the dress I am going to wear. It was under $200 from Davids Bridal. Excuse the poor photo, I was just excited to take a pic for a freind.
