tea length vs cocktail length

I know this sounds crazy but is there a difference between tea length and cocktail length? I found the same dress at alfred angelos and davids bridal that I would like to use but  I need them to be the same length.

That's a great question, one I struggled with as well.  I do think they are pretty much the same length - I'd call customer service at both places and ask what the length is from the waist.  If it's the same, you're in the clear.

thank you. I looked at two pictures and saw that one fell right at the knee ( cocktail) and the other felll right below the waist. i could always have the tea length hemmed to cocktail if it didn't fall where i wanted it to on the girls.  the only other problem is that the dresses which are identical are different prices as well.

I believe cocktail length comes to just above the knee and tea length is a little bit below. I could be mistaken though.

Tea length is usually to the calves and when people refer to a cocktail dress, it just means that it falls anywhere between your knees and calves--it's just not a full length dress.
