As a short girl, I had tried on some long dresses but pretty much knew from the get-go that I wanted tea-length. My consultant wasn't a big fan of tea-length, but even he was convinced when I tried this on! My mother thought it looked like a "fairy tale" dress. I apparently started alterations a little late in the game and ended up adding straps to make sure it didn't droop, but I ended up liking it that way just as much. My one issue is that I was told by a couple of employees that it wouldn't be a good idea to shorten the dress since it would mess up the proportions, but I'm now seeing other reviews where brides did have it shortened, so I'm questioning what I was told. Overall though, considering that I generally don't like anything below the knee, I loved the style and detailing of this dress and surprisingly even liked the way I looked in it!

Fit My every dream
I bought this for a destination wedding in Maui and it was perfect. I had to have it shortened to fit my height, but it was simply beautiful. My pictures are amazing. I added a colored ribbon that matched my bouquet and it was the perfect pop of color against the blue sea. It had a vintage flair and very romantic. I got a "wow" every time I put it on.

I can not wait to wear it!!!
I saw this dress online and immediately fell in love. I was never excited about a long dress, makes me feel dirty that it is dragging on the ground. The second I put it on I was ready to hand over the credit card. The detailing is beautiful!
I did try on some long dresses, which were beautiful, but I could not get this dress out of my mind.
I am wearing it with blue shoes and it looks amazing. Only 7 months until I get to wear it (yes I look at almost everyday in my closet). :)

I love my tea length dress
I've always had a tea-length dress in mind for my wedding. I got engaged and married in a month and a half and wore this dress with no alterations. This is a size 8. I normally wear a size 6. It fit very well, it is a bit roomy in the bust.
I tried it on with a red ribbon for fun and loved it so much I changed all of my wedding colors.
I always get compliments on its unique style.
The peep-toe shoes I wore we're also from David's Bridal. My consultant lent me a pair to try on, and I loved the whole look and later returned to buy them.
