Tea

This year brought us a very hot summer, and we’re not quite done with it, yet. Add to that the fact that wedding dresses, particularly the high quality gowns, are really, really heavy, and you end up with a lot of miserably overheated brides.
So you’ve got an outdoor, summer wedding, it’s supposed to be bright and gorgeous out, a perfect setting for a picturesque ceremony, but you don’t want to broil. Enter the tea length dress!

Ranging from knee-length to mid-calf, the tea length dress has a lot of potential, is easier to keep clean than a long train, and is certainly cooler.

Going for a bit of a fifties look? Pair a mid-calf tea length with a bird cage veil or a pill box hat.

Looking for something a little less formal? These still say “wedding” without having to scream it, and they’re generally a bit more on the conservative side for price.

The tea length is not widely accepted as traditional these days, but don’t let that deter you from giving it a try, you may just find they fit that offbeat quirk you need.

And hey, we have them, white, ivory, even blush! Our stock is moderate, but we’ve got a range of lengths and a smattering of styles in store.

No, really. These are just a few of the residents of the Under 100 Wall, ranging anywhere from $49 to $99 for wedding gowns from bridal size 4 through 18.Under 100 wall3

While there just a few ‘sold as is’ (broken zipper, etc), almost all of these dresses are in pristine condition, they’ve merely been floating around the store longer than we’d prefer.Under 100 wall2

So, of course, this means that you get a deal! Make sure to stop in and take a look through the 50+ dresses on our Under 100 Wall.Under 100 wall

A year, we’ve decided, is long enough.

Welcome to the under-construction Gown and Glove website! I’m working diligently to try to make sure everything is updated; the addons, how the addons work with our site, the stock, photographs, blogs… there’s so much to do!

All of us here at the store are extremely excited for what this site means for us, though, and what we’re hoping to do with it. I’ll be making more announcements over the next few months, as more and more changes go through, from new stock (yes, wedding gowns, but also formal dresses, shoes, jewelry, decorations, ring bearer pillows… we’ve got a little bit of everything!) to an expanded gallery, hopefully of our customers, like you, in our dresses! We want to see your happy day, your school dance, your table settings and centerpieces.

So keep an eye on the site over the summer, it’s sure to be exciting! As always, we’d love to hear your input, let us know what you’re thinking, on the website, on ideas, on dresses, on what you want to see on our blog, on events, on shoes… (Have I mentioned shoes? I’d LOVE to talk to you about shoes!) …we’re listening.
