you might wanna try looking for dress makers or seamstresses on yelp.com

I can not believe they didnt have anything in a tea length for under 3500, I am from a small town and my local shop has more to offer it sounds like. Sorry for the rotten experience, hope you find what you are looking for.

I’m sorry that happened to you.  Did you ever try http://www.dollycouture.com/ They have gorgeous dresses that are tea length with a vintage look, if thats something you like!  And their dresses are prety reasonable!

I’m sorry this happened to you. I’m scared to ask where this happened at. Eva’s, Heim’s, Amelishan…

Try Etsy!  If you don’t see anything for sale that’s already designed, you can always post an alchemy request on etsy as well and lots of seamstresses will propose a price to compete to make the dress you want within your budget.  Just be sure and check feedback/past work if going the alchemy route.

I would check out who Miss Pretzel used and perhaps have one custom made. Don’t worry all bridal stores aren’t bratty like that but I went to quite a few that were. I don’t know why some bridal consultants feel the need to rain on your parade.

Chin up though- you will find your dress, I promise! :o)

Take a look at nordstom.com and their wedding section.  They have lots of tea length dresses.  You could order a couple online and return the ones you don’t like in store!  🙂

How’s the dress shopping coming along?  If you’re interested in traveling to the Madison area, Brandi’s Bridal Galleria in New Glarus has a good selection of tea-length dresses, and dresses that can easily be altered to be tea-length.  My friend and I were dress shopping for her this past summer and she’s about your size – the dresses the consultant chose looked amazing on her!  Good luck!

Oh I know what you’re going through! Here in my area (and I think in Australia in general!) it’s next to impossible to find tea length dresses. I’m having mine made for me by a local dressmaker that specialises in wedding dresses. That way I’ve been able to have the exact dress I want made to fit ME and it’ll be just the way I want it. I’ve heard that you should be able to order in standard dresses and have the manufacturer make them shorter but ironically it may cost more to have less dress! Also I’m not buying that body type stuff – ANYONE looks great in a sassy tea length if they look happy and confident, which of course you will!!! Goodluck!

I’ve heard that miss ruby has dresses that aren’t your typical wedding dresses. Call ahead though and find out for sure! http://www.missrubyboutique.com
