Tea length wedding dresses bring the style and flare of the fifties into the modern wedding. With skirts just beneath the knee, tea length wedding dresses are fun and flirty; definitely a style for modern women in a modern world, despite the older feel.
These shorter length dresses are also an awesome choice for vintage shoppers. Why buy a new gown, freshly made, when you’re a lover of the used? Vintage wedding dresses have a style and character all their own, and tea length gowns have certainly experienced one round in the public eye already. High end vintage shops may carry vintage gowns, as well as thrift stores. These gowns may need a round at the dry cleaners, but they can be just as beautiful and well-made as a brand new dress if you’re a savvy shopper.
A vintage dress is hardly your only option, however. Tea length dresses are just as popular now as they were back in the day, and you can get any style skirt, in any type of dress, with a length custom tailored to your desires just by choosing to have your dress made by hand or by getting it hemmed to your desired length. A tea length dress suits any fabric in the skirt and is often an A-line cut dress which is flattering for every figure.
Remember, a tea length wedding dress falls just about mid-calf in length, so be sure you don’t go too long or above the knee; that’s definitely too short for tea-length!
