You heard that homonym right, ladies! 2013 weddings are all about the trend, and one trend that I simply can’t get enough of is the resurgence of tea-length dresses. Legit, if I were an archeologist, I’d dig these bad boys the most. (Oh, yeah, I took it there.)
Tea-length dresses are the epitome of 50′s glam, and with vintage chic being all the rage these days, it’s no wonder that somewhat shorter dresses have packed some serious wedding swagger! With their trendy look, flirty feel and mod swing, tea length gowns are ideal for modern day brides looking for a little retro rewind.
Not only that, but there are also countless trends to be found within this trend that creating looks that are straight awesome-sauce is easy as pie! Some of my favorites are the blush bridal tea length. Both sweet and sophisticated, the look of blush on a shorter bridal gown can really add softness and allure.
I’m also a HAAA-HUGE fan of the sweeping sweetheart neckline. Pair this look with a pair of short, white gloves, and literally, it’s like being transported back in time when class and lady couture was done impeccably :)
While several wedding dress designers – David’s Bridal, Moonlight, Kleinfeld, Melissa Sweet, Justin Alexander, etc. – all do beautifully cut, tea length gowns, no one quite does ’em like Stephanie James Couture.
Crisp, clean and couture, the styling of these short wedding gowns are courtesy of a husband / wife duo, based out of SoCal - that’s “Southern California” for all you surf’s up slackers :) – and are truly of a breath of fresh fashion air! Check out below for some of my pinned faves!
So, if your destination, backyard BBQ or retro-rific wedding is in need of a little extra oomph, you might want to ditch that traditionally trained gown for a killer cocktail dress instead!
