I wouldn’t say they’re the norm but there’s a bigger market for them here I think. I considered tea length 1950s circle dress from Vivien of Holloway- London based company  

Next to nobody I know has had a princess ballgown but I know of 3 who’ve done tea length. It may link in with vintage styling and the fact that quirky is quite appreciated.

I’ve seen several of my friends wear tea length dresses, and the bridal shop I bought my (full length) dress from had an entire rail of tea lengthers – they said they are becoming more and more popular. I imagine the lack of train suits our current British ‘summer’ pretty well, as there is nothing to drag round in the rain!

I am currently looking at tea length dresses 😀 I’m 5’3 and a lil bit chubby at the moment so full length gowns make me look like a loo roll cover, wheras tea lenth gowns look good on me from mid -calf to knee length

I’ve omily ever been to one wedding where a bride has worn a tea length dress but I have seen photos online of others. I really do like them!

I had my heart set on tea length but when I called bridal salons in the U.S. (Including larger cities like Raleigh and Richmond), no one had them.  I didn’t want to go to David’s but they had the largest selection of tea length and I love my choice from there!

starcitylady:  US ladies check out a shop called Dolly Couture for tea length dresses. They are AMAZING and all hand made.

They certainly are not big here in Australia but I have to say I LOVE them! They remind meof Grace Kelly in all those 1950s films
