Five Elements of Vintage Inspired Short Wedding Dresses

Vintage Inspired Short Wedding Dress

A tea length wedding dress is unique to each bride that wears it. It can be adapted to every requirement and is made up of different elements. We are confident you will find the perfect elements from our vintage inspired wedding dress collection. Below are some of the combinations to think about when choosing a tea length wedding dress.

The Neckline

There are lots of different options when it comes to the neckline of your short wedding dress. A sweetheart neckline is very flattering because it draws the eye up to the face. An Illusion neckline allows some structure yet provide some freedom and the illusion of a strapless wedding gown.

A plain satin bodice is classic and timeless and can fit into any style of wedding day. The intricate detail on a vintage inspired wedding dress is wonderful. From lace that sweeps across the bodice to crystals and sparkles that pick up the light. There is a style for every bride to be.

One of the best reasons to wear a tea length wedding dress is its versatility. Our brides can decide whether to have a strapless dress, capped sleeves or longer sleeves. Most retro wedding dresses can be adapted to different requirements. From lace to polka dots, the sleeves can become a feature all on their own.
