I love it love it love it! The design and length are so cute on you. This is exactly the style of dress I wanted at first, but sadly the tea length didn’t look so good on me.
That said, it’s your dress. If you don’t like it, maybe it’s not the one. But have no doubt that it looks great on you!

Oh my God, your dress is amazing! I absolutely love it. I’m also a tea-length dress bride, too, and I think I actually like yours a bit more than mine 🙂 haha!
Honestly, I think that every bride always has that little bit of doubt about her dress, regardless of how much she may love it. I think that if you had a longer dress, you’d always be wondering, “Should I have gone with the shorter dress?” I think wedding dresses are all about realizing that you’re always going to find something you like better out there, but learning to love what you originally fell in love with because you bought it for a reason!
You look absolutely lovely, and I hope you feel confident about the dress as it gets closer!

Thanks ladies! Y’all are all too sweet!
Well, I guess I will always have doubt…sminerva, you put it great, since the reason I chose it was that I felt great in it. I didn’t even want to look at anymore dresses after that one.
Thanks again to ALL of you gals. I hope you are having a great day! You helped me put one thing to rest that I have been stressing about…at least for now. =)

it’s adorable and modern. you look great in it. i love the details on the top part. i think for your setting, it’s perfect. you look ready to party the night away – maybe with a birdcage veil – and not weighed down at all!

BusyBecks, you look beautiful in that dress! It’s a very feminine design, not at all too “cutsey” or not “wedding-y” enough though I do understand your concerns as I am on the hunt for a tea length dress myself. What brand is your dress? I love it!!

I really love your dress. Especially the bodice. It reminds me of one of the Watters gowns, that was $3k out of my price range. Are you at David’s Bridal? If I had seen that there I would have snagged it!

It’s very cute and I see what you’re saying about it being “too cute”. I sort of agree, but it does look great on you. I am not a fan of the style though and prefer a longer gown.

I Love it! It ia cute, but you have such a sweet face and you look so happy in all your pictures. I think you can totally rock it. It’s an elegant and sweet short dress. you could leave it un hemmed if your conscerned about the length. I think it’s rockin either way!

I’m not a big fan of the dress, but to be fair it’s also not something that would normally draw my eye. I like the idea of a short dress, but I think it would look better with flats.

I think the real question is: is your event casual enough for a tea length dress? if the answer is ‘yes’, this dress is AWESOME!. If the answer is ‘no’, then this dress is still AWESOME, just without the length cut off!

creme, the dress is Oleg Cassini at David’s Bridal. It’s a test edition dress, so only about 10 stores carry it. I got mine at the Mobile, AL store. I am not sure about the dress# or additional information, but you can probably call there and they would know which one you were asking about.
Thanks for the honest opinions.
I have always been the cute, little one and for this one day I want to be the glamorous lady. I just keep going back and forth over it. I might try some more on when I go to pick it up. Thank goodness for preownedweddingdresses.com and oncewed.com, in case I need to resale my dress!

I really wouldn’t shorten it. I think it looks so cute and vintage at that length. If you want something a little more formal, why not by a long slim line dress for the ceremony. I absolutely love your dress.

I absolutely ADORE that dress! It’s making me wish **I** had gotten a short one (what I wanted in the first place).

Oops…I do see that the dress is pinned up a bit. I love that pinned length. If you don’t mind me asking…how tall are you?

SanDiego…thanks! Hope you don’t get dress remorse too. It’s horrible. =)
Heather, I am definitely a petite bride at 5’1..and a half. =) I like the pinned length also, was maybe thinking even a bit shorter.
