A floor-length princess wedding dress is not the wedding dress of every bride’s dreams. But in fact, there are several brides who opt for a tea-length ivory wedding dress in place of the traditional white wedding ball gown. Modern brides can choose a dress in any style or shape she wants, be it a red colored dress or a retro ’40’s style, or even a gown covered in feathers and dyed pink.
A wedding gown should match with the style of the entire wedding. For a large evening candlelight adults-only wedding would need more formal dress than a backyard family affair or beach wedding ceremony. The wearing of a tea-length gown will met its perfect look for the wedding themes such as outdoor, garden, beach, destination and mountain weddings.
A tea-length wedding dress is also suitable second wedding dress for brides who have “been there, done that” with a more traditional floor-length dress. Tea-length wedding dresses have a tendency to be less elaborate and may also appeal to a more mature bride.
The present trend in wedding dresses is to infuse a little or even a lot of colors. The use of beading, sequins, sashes, and embroidery in black, red, blue, and purple becomes a popular choice for the modern brides. Opting for an ivory wedding gown is different enough from white and off-white wedding gowns, but still simple and classic looking. Ivory is a timeless color that may even look better on some brides than shades of white. Tea-length ivory wedding dresses are made by a number of popular wedding gown designers, and can be found at large bridal retail stores as well.
