Tea Length And Short Wedding Dresses For Older Brides
Vintage and Retro Dresses
A tea length wedding dress can suit brides who want to evoke a vintage or retro vibe with their wedding outfit. Or maybe you are having a casual garden, beach or park wedding and a shorter dress would fit the day just perfectly. Many older brides or brides who have been married before also go for a tea-length or shorter wedding dress style rather than a long traditional length gown and veil.
A dress that falls below the knee and above the ankle is very flattering and feminine. You can show off your legs a little too. And then there are the shoes. We adore shoes and all bridal accessories. With a long wedding dress, the shoes are hidden and hardly seen at all. With a short bridal gown, you can see those satin heels or bejeweled bridal shoes all day long. High heels, ballet flats, or even cool boots can change the look of your dress. Many mature brides like to go for elegant heels for the ceremony, then change to more casual shoes for dancing at the wedding reception. The tea length dress looks great with any style of shoe.
Casual or Formal?
Tea-length bridal dresses come in so many styles, and depending on the fabric, neckline, and sleeves, they can become more formal or casual depending on the look you want to create. If you want a more sexy, flirty style, a short dress might be for you. If you still want elegance and sophistication, then a lace bodice, long sleeves or diamond accessories can take you there.
Another wonderful advantage with short to mid-length wedding dresses is you can wear them again. Just change the accessories and dress it down, and you have your outfit for a night at the opera, a festive Christmas party or a summery outdoors event. We love sustainable fashion and also say your dress deserves more than one spin on the dance floor.
