One of my friends has expressed concern that my wedding dress isn’t going to feel ‘special enough’ if it’s tea length.
“You have plenty of dresses in your cupboard like that already, you can wear them whenever you want,” she points out.
And she’s right. Apart from my love of vintage, tea length dresses are flattering on me. They’re by far the most prevalent type of dres I own. Perhaps it’s because of this, or in spite of it, I don’t know, that I can’t picture myself wearing any other type of wedding dress. I’ve looked at other styles of dresses and though they’re gorgeous, I just can’t imagine walking down the aisle in them, or doing my first dance in them.
So I thought I’d put together some inspiration pictures, pictures of women like Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Sophia Loren wearing tea length wedding dresses. ‘Coz those women know how to dress, they’ve got class and their look is timeless.
But it turns out it’s remarkably hard to find photographs of them in tea length wedding dresses. Or at least, photographs where you can tell it’s a tea length wedding dress.
I’ll have to keep looking, but here’s what I have so far. And if you know of any other photographs, please let me know.
