I really like the second dress and I think it would be super cute on a farm. However most wedding dresses get pretty dirty its kind of part of the wedding day so i wouldnt worry about it too much unless the farm is super muddy

I agree with PPs. Unless you have a vision of your daughter wearing your dress someday (which never seems to happen because almost all dresses look terribly dated by the time that day rolls around and most daughters want their own dress), then I wouldn’t worry about it. You’ll get it cleaned after the wedding and even though it may not all come out, it will be okay because it will just be hanging in your closet in a bag for the rest of eternity 😉 That’s my opinion on the matter, anyway! So I would focus more on which dress you actually like more, and forget about the dirt!

The first picture looks more traditional, second picture looks a little more modern. I say second picture.

I love the second one, but I’m a sucker for tea-length dresses.

You could even go a step further and wear it with cowboy boots.

We’re having our reception in the forest – and this was the first dress I bought:

When it arrived and I tried it on, I realised it would end up a complete mess not too far into the wedding day. While it felt like I could live with me spilling a little wine on it at the end of the night, I didn’t want to have to go through the first dance being conscious about the bottom of the dress. So, I sent it back and bought this one instead:




I’m much happier with this choice as it feels like I’ll be able to relax during the wedding day!

A tea length dress for a rustic farm wedding would be really cute! I like the suggestion of pairing it with cowboy boots. But of course, it changes the whole style of your wedding, making it less traditonal and more whimsical/casual. If you love your original dress and getting it dirty is your only concern, I wouldn’t switch. Wedding dresses tend to get dirty and that’s what dry-cleaning is for!

Both dresses are lovely!  You’re going to look gorgeous no matter what.  But if you’d feel a bit better about not getting the tea-length one dirty, then go for that!

Awww I wanted that second dress when we were considering eloping. Good job I didn’t get it actually as one of my friends had the full length version for her dress and she was one of the most stunning brides I have ever seen. So I say go with the second

I actually really love the full length dress. I think the detail on it is beautiful. Dont worry about getting it dirty, you can always get it dry cleaned after the wedding!
