Any girl over the height of 5ft 9 knows it is hard to get a full-length dress that touches the ground when you have your heels on. Black tie is my favourite attire so I am pretty much a pro in this field.
Being on a budget and being tall don't go all that well together - i've found that the more expensive the brand, the longer length it is. Take Solace, London; very expensive dresses (most are around £200) but they are really long, like so long that I have had to get mine taken up before!

Slightly cheaper, but still expensive, brands such as Jarlo and AQAQboth have tall ranges.
Jarlo Tall from ASOS - £95 (including student discount)
My bae, my love, my everything is ASOS tall. I buy the majority of my clothes from ASOS and loads from ASOS tall. If I got paid for the amount of times I promoted ASOS Premium, I would be able to afford a Solace London dress.
ASOS Tall - £63 (Including student discount)
Surprisingly, MissGuided maxi dresses are really long. Yeah, sometimes the material is quite cheap but when you are paying £30 for a dress and then getting a 30% discount, you don't really care. And let's be honest, your dress will get ruined at Daft Friday.

Obviously, I am not going to post my dress from this year but as you can see from the last three years, I will be in black.
Good luck and I hope that you find a dress that no one else is wearing!
