11 Tea-Length Wedding Dresses for the Modern Bride
You’ve got the ring, you’ve picked the date, and now you are on to finding the perfect dress for the big day. You are the kind of girl that is looking for something fresh and modern, so that run-of-the-mill, full-length bridal gown just won’t do. Why not take a little inspiration from the past and give the tea-length dress a spin?
Inspired by the retro skirt shape of yesteryear, the silhouette typically falls below the knee yet hits above the ankle. An iconic bridal shape, made infamous by Audrey Hepburn’s dreamy Givenchy number in the beloved film Funny Face, has also been worn by modern day brides as well — like Natalie Portman’s elegant take in Rodarte.
Currently, we are falling for the contemporary updates designers are making to the classic shape, from crisp clean lines for the minimalist to layers of tulle and appliqués for the maximalist, even a two-piece set for the daring! Shop a few of our favorites below, from true bridal brands to off-the-rack options at every price point. The only thing next on your list? A cute pair of dancing shoes to match.
