Known as a Tea, Dance or Ballerina length skirt, the shorter skirt is a subtle departure from the traditional floor length gown. A tea length skirt, which hits a few inches above the ankle, evokes an ingenue-like sensibility, and when paired with a ballgown silhouette, achieves a glamorous, debutante or ballerina look. The tea length quickly became embraced for being less formal than the longer hemlines and a perfect choice for a daytime garden ceremony.
The Tea Length Wedding Dress never had more chic acclaim than when Audrey Hepburn wore it. Audrey Hepburn married Mel Ferrer in 1954 wearing a Balmain dress with tiny waist, wide sleeves and full skirt with a floral hair wreathe that was timeless in both it’s design and it’s accessories.
