25 Utterly Gorgeous Tea Length & Short Wedding Dresses
If you’re looking for an unconventional wedding dress, something chic yet flirty and fun; a wedding dress that is informal but still oozes glamour; a dress that you can really let your hair down in, or that perhaps Grace Kelly or Audrey Hepburn would have sashayed down the aisle in; then look no further! Nothing says vintage quite like a bride in a tea length wedding dress, and being very much on trend for 2015, the catwalks were absolutely brimming with them! So here are 25 of my absolute faves…..
Tea Length Wedding Dresses
There’s something about tea-length that is so feminine and girly (who can forget Keira Knightley skipping to the town hall with her husband to be) The epitome of 1950s glamour and elegance, Tea Length wedding dress fall between just below the knee and mid calf. With petticoats of tulle they create a stunning, waist-cinching silhouette, as well as a fun and flirty bridal look. Whilst perfect for a more relaxed and even rustic wedding, they can also look sophisticated for a city hall wedding, and just as lovely for a vintage infused classic wedding!

Short Wedding Dresses
Any dress that falls above the knee isn’t really tea length, but short. However short and sassy doesn’t have to mean slutty, short can be just as chic as floor or tea length wedding dresses, they just show off a little more leg – which makes them perfect for the more diminutive bride as they can make you appear taller and avoid you looking swamped in tulle. Take a look at these elegant examples…..
For a more 1960s vibe, choose a shift dress like this one from the Spring 2015 Bridal Collection from Marchesa, rather than a full skirt…..
Or this gorgeous 2 piece from Oleg Cassini has a distinctly Hepburn-esque feel…..

Or for something a little more 1920s in styling, the lovely Luna…..
Ballerina Wedding Dresses
Ballerina length wedding dresses are often called tea length, but anything that falls between mid calf and ankle is strictly speaking Ballerina. Worn with high heels they’re are slightly more demure and traditional than tea length, but with a hint of the flirtatious and still just as ideal for flaunting those perfect bridal heels!
