Tea-Length Mother-of-the-Bride Dresses


Even if you're not having a vintage-themed wedding, tea-length dresses are ideal for mothers-of-the-bride and groom. Their hemline, which falls in between the knee and the calf, provides coverage, but isn't as formal as a full-length gown. The gown on the left, by Jade by Jasmine, features flattering ruching to accent the waist and the chiffon fabric would be lovely at an outdoor, garden wedding. The Siri dress at right, has 3/4 length sleeves—ideal for moms who are shy about showing their arms—and would be ideal for a fall wedding.
