How to wear a Tea-Length Wedding Gown

One of the hottest trends in wedding gowns right now is the teal-length or ballerina gown.  This was also a popular length in the 1950's, so it definitely evokes a vintage feel.  Often considered less-formal than a full-length gown, that is not necessarily the case.

Styling this style of gown takes a different twist than a traditional gown for sure.  Fabulous shoes are a must!  This length also allows you to do a nice high-heeled pump for the ceremony with cute ballet flats or shorter heels for dancing into the night at your reception.  

I love pairing a shoulder-length veil with this type of wedding gown.  Something modern and full that brings attention to your face and eyes.  For an outdoor wedding, wear a fascinator instead of a veil.  (A fascinator is a fancy term for a headpiece of fabric flowers or feathers with a small bit of netting on a comb)

At September's Bride, we have a nice selection of tea-length gowns from Maggie Sottero, Justin Alexander, and Stephanie James Couture.
