Ballerina Length


The hemline of a ballerina length skirt stops right above the ankle; slightly longer than tea-length.

Ballerina skirts are often made of tulle, making them much like a ball gown, but instead of extending to the floor, the ballerina length just barely graze the ankles.

Ballerina Length Wedding Dresses

Ballerina length wedding dresses are most typically worn by brides having a wedding ceremony with a more relaxed, informal feel. However, given that a ballerina length skirt is almost floor length, it does give off a more formal feel than other "informal short wedding dresses, making it perfect for brides who want an informal wedding with a fancy touch. (See "Informal Short Wedding Dresses" for more information on formal vs. informal wedding dresses.)

Many brides also choose to have a second dress, to wear during the reception. A wedding dress with a ballerina length skirt is great for the bride who wants more freedom to dance the night away, but would like a slightly more formal style.

Benefits of Ballerina Length Wedding Dresses:


  • Provides a great balance of formal & informal style
  • More freedom of movement than a floor length gown

Things to consider:

 
  • The ballerina length may further shorten the appearance of petite brides
