Strapless Tea-Length Gown with Cap Sleeve Shrug Style 9T9948
Beautiful, comfortable, and fun!
I absolutely adore this dress! I wore it for my April wedding and it was perfect. I knew I wanted a no-nonsense dress that I would be comfortable in all day long. The length was wonderful. I'm 5'3" and it hit above my ankles as is without heels, and I ended up with a crinoline underneath to make it a little fuller and higher. The alterations department added on straps (CAP2) and you couldn't tell they wren't there to begin with. The jacket was great to have, even though on the day of I ended up not wearing it as much as I had planned.
I will say this dress was hard to track down as every nearby store (or stores near family) said they did not have it in stock, but when i went in in person they had it in several sizes. I suggest you always follow up in person as sometimes the computer inventory is not up to date.

Perfect for a Garden Wedding
My husband and I got married in the beautiful Schell's Brewery Garden in New Ulm, MN and had a peacock color/theme, since they have free-roaming peacocks and peahens. I couldn't have a long dress due to all of the flowers and foliage. The dress was still a little long when I first purchased it, but the alterations specialist at DB West Fargo, ND was awesome and shortened it for me.
The look on my husband's face when he first saw me was absolutely priceless. I felt beautiful and comfortable in the dress and loved the vintage appeal to it. The little jacket also helped to cover some of my tattoos, which my grandmother and husband's mother really loved!

This dress is just the BEST! I love the tea length, I didn't need help moving around or going to the bathroom, but still looked elegant.

Pretty and Comfortable
I knew I wanted a tea length gown, but that's really hard to find in a salon. But I didn't want to risk ordering online. I'm so happy I found this dress. It went straight to the top of the list because it was so comfortable (and I've been around too long for that not to count!). I added a pretty substantial petticoat to help add a waist and am very happy to have gone with a colored sash (for a St. Patrick's wedding). The sash it comes with was the only thing disappointing about it. The dress doesn't wrinkle, and it lasted all day.
