Long story short, my custom made gown got butched. I panicked and completely switched gears then and there from what I originally wanted and began looking for tea length gowns. This morning I ordered the Gilded Grace Dress in Champagne from ModCloth (http://www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses/gilded-grace-dress-in-champagne), which has been a life saver for me. It’s so beautiful, and puts a lot of more expensive dresses to shame (in my opinion) with it’s beautiful champagne lace.
I have become obessed with tea length gowns in my frenzy and would love to see pictures of any Bee’s who owns or have at least tried on a tea length gown. Also, what are you doing for petticoats (if at all)? I would like some poof on mine, but I’m holding off on buying a petticoat until my dress comes in so I can see what the dress looks like in me. If you are using a petticoat, where did you find them? I’m looking around now just incase I need one, but “tea lengths” comes in so many different lengths I don’t know where to look!

This is not me and this is not my gown but I saw this picture on the net and fell in love. Posting it in the interests of tea length appreciation

This is my tea length! I got a soft lace edged pink petticoat from malco modes on Amazon. I don’t have any pics of me in the dress with the petticoat. My shoes are pink as well and I will be wearing a pink sash. I knew I didn’t want a really full crinoline because it wouldn’t work with the shape of my dress. I will wear my petticoat even with my hem, I only want it to show when moving.

I love the lace on youryour back.
I love how tea lengths gives you a little peak of the shoe. Before with full lengths, I was like: what’s the point of buying pretty heels if no one will see them?

I’m having tea length! Vintage feel, beautiful shoes ahhhh! What’s not to love, I’m having mine made because i am shortly going for weight loss surgery and am hoping to loose 60kg in around a year! It’s not going to leave me enough time to order a dress, and I’m not sure if I will have extra skin and how to fit it. I got a lot of inspiration from house of mooshki. Beautiful dresses 🙂

I like this Alfred Angelo because its modern but retro and I love the little “train”!

Here’s mine, eyelet lace, 50s style. So much more comfortable than hauling around a floor-length gown all day. If I had, the whole bottom would have been stained with red mud anyway – my shoes were. As an added bonus, the ability to have crinolines meant I could do orange without making my girls look bad.

Gosh I love the House of Mooshki dresses, they’re so beautiful. They are too rich for my blood at this stage of wedding planning, but if I had known about them earlier I would have gone for it. I just found out about them a few days ago when I was looking for tea lengths, and was so jealous of the brides who get to wear their dresses.
I have only very rarely saw a tea lenght with a train. They add just a little more of a bridal element I think. Here’s another one, not sure where it’s from I saw it on Pinterest.

We are doing a Vegas wedding, and I would COMPLETELY be ok with a tea-length dress. I have been eyeing this one for about a year now….
My Fiance believes that deep down, I will be sad, or dissappointed if I don’t do a normal long wedding dress, so he wants me to get what I “really” want. I think HE wants me to have a long dress, but doesn’t want to just say it. He is way more traditional in what he wants for the wedding than I do.

I love that Aisle be There Dress, I was torn between that and the Gilded Grace Dress. I eventually went with the Gilded Grace Dress because I loved the lace. If I was doing a Vegas wedding I would really think about a tea length. Vegas just has a retro modern vibe in alot of places which would work with a tea length. Also, Vegas is HOT. I wouldn’t want to do a really long dress for it.. unless it was in the Fall or Winter time, but it still could be too much for a long wedding dress. I’ve been to San Diego, which I think their weather is pretty similar to Vegas in terms of hotness.
I hope you find the dress you are happy with!
