I want a knee-length dress. Help!

Recommended Posts

I love the tea-length dresses. I wanted to do one but in the end I debated if I would feel truly bridal. Still gorgeous though.

 

All the girls provided you what I know, so I have no pics or advice to offer. Just wanted to say I think it's a great style of dress- especially for a DW. :)

I would try david's bridal then. They probably would be the fastest turn around time. I think they told me 3 months.

 

It took 6 months to order my dress. You wouldn't have enough time from a smaller shop.

 

Have you looked at dept stores like Macys or Nordstrom? I bought a dress to wear in case I get too hot at the reception at Macys and I think it would be a very pretty, casual dress for the ceremony. I can try to find it to post.

 

There were a ton of cocktail dresses too. You may be able to find one in white or another light color.

Thanks! I tried on a few tea length with my future MIL (completely unplanned and resulting in a mild panic attack!) and the tea length kind of cut off my legs and made me look even shorter than I am (5'3"), so it looks like I have to do knee length (not sure if I will feel 'bridal' enough) or a long one. I'm worried about the long one though as I don't want the bottom to get all dirty in the sand. Any ideas?

Lee I went to the Davids Bridal off the 495, its in Fairfax County and they had some tea length dresses. It was last year, but I am sure they will still have some, also you might find a great BM dress that they can order in white/ivory.

Hmm Nordies at Pentagon City doesn't have a very good section for this, but macy's might

I'm 5'0 and I looked silly in them too. You would think shorter looks better. David's bridal has a dress that isn't as full and might not make you look as "stumpy." I tried to find it really quick but couldn't. A few girls on the forum have worn it and it's super cute. It's shorter in the front, but a little longer in the back. It's a lace one.

 

I wish I could find it- maybe they don't have it anymore?

 

As for the sand, I wouldn't worry about it. Girls say it gets clean afterwards. I haven't really seen a clean gown after a non-beach wedding. It's white, it drags on the ground, so it's bound to get dirty.

 

Do what pleases you. There are some cute short dresses too. Look at Nordstrom.

I did the same thing as Debs.... I went to the bridal shop told them I wanted a white tea length wedding dress and they looked at me like I was crazy. I tried on a cute tea length BM dress and got it in white, its perfect and on $220!!!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
