Get the Look: Natalie Portman’s Tea-Length Rodarte Wedding Dress

Floor-sweeping dresses and ball gowns not really your thing? Take a cue from actress Natalie Portman and opt for a dress with a shorter hemline. For her August 4th nuptials to choreographer Benjamin Millepied in Big Sur, California, Portman donned a custom tea-length gown with long, sheer sleeves designed by Rodarte. Ballet flats and a crown of wildflowers (the trend continues!) finished the sweet, fuss-free look.

For a look a la Portman, try one of these eight tea-length styles. We especially love the retro silhouettes by Betsy Couture–the dresses are custom-designed and handsewn by local seamstress Betsy Barker.
