Archive for Mother of the Groom Tea Length Dresses

It is not surprising that many of us mix up Mother of the Groom tea length dresses with knee length dresses, because the difference is actually very small, but to be exact I have found two lovely dresses, both would be stunning Mother of the Groom dresses in their own right and they each give a clear example of the differences in length.

First we have this beautiful knee length beaded tea length chiffon Mother of the Bride dress. It is absolutely stunning. The perfect color for a wedding as it will go nicely with any other colors. The detailed beading and elegant jacket are fantastic too. As you can see, the skirt hem is clearly at the knee and this is often a good length for a daytime wedding.


This second dress is a perfect example of Mother of the Groom tea length dresses. It’s hemline comes almost midway between the ankle and knee. This is a true tea length dress and is suitable for daytime or evening wear. I love this dress, although it might be a little plain on it’s own for Mother of the Bride or Groom dresses. Spice it up with a jacket or pashmina and some startling jewelry.

Mother of the Groom tea length dresses are the perfect choice for an informal or afternoon wedding. It is customary for the Mother of the Bride and the Mother of the Groom dresses to be the same length, so it is a good idea to liaise with the Mother of the Bride on length of dress before you make your purchase.

I love this dress! It is very elegant and the jacket really finishes it off nicely doesn’t it?

This beautiful chiffon dress is perfect, but I would not recommend it if you are conscious of having large hips as the layers may tend to make them look bigger.

This is a wonderful example of a classic tea length dress. I would choose a different color though as it is a bit too dark to wear as a Mother of the Groom dress, but if you click on the picture to go through to the webpage you will find that it comes in a great range of colors like ice blue, victorian rose and forest green to name but a few.

Soft and flowing, this style of tea length dress is also perfect for ladies with a larger figure as the design at the waist has a slimming effect. Pink may not be for everyone, but most of these dresses come in a huge selection of colors.

The first and third pictures are my personal favorites. Which do you prefer and why?

The prices of the dresses featured above range from $150 to $200, which is what you might expect to pay for a good quality dress of this type, but if you are on a tighter budget than that I recommend looking out for sales and special offers.

Best of luck in finding your perfect Mother of the Groom tea length dresses.
