    I prefer to let people decide for themselves how they are going to dress- and behave!

    Their choices reflect on them, not me, so why would I waste energy worrying about those choices?

    I never did want to be a “hem length monitor” when I grew up.

    I know what you mean. Some formal attire is starting to look like clubwear.

    I think above the knee is still okay for a wedding, but if all your lady parts are almost hanging out… no. Just no. 

    However, they’re only getting negative attention, so that’s their fault and their problem.

    I am old-fashioned so no short skirts/dresses/shorts for me. Mini is a word only used as the knickname for Minnie Mouse!

    Short and tight is what I’m noticing! They’ll come just over the butt and be skin-tight! I’m like, umm, this is not a night club… I like longer skirts, around or slightly above the knee anyway.

    I don’t really care either way what other people wear. I don’t think I noticed what one person wore to my wedding, and I only look at what other people are wearing at other events so I can get inspiration.

    @les105:  I don’t really care what other people wear, generally, but I will feel uncomfortable if guests show up to my Catholic church wedding in tight little skirts… Especially considering that my bridesmaids and I are required to cover our shoulders.

    I misunderstood the question at the first-need to change to “yes.” A wedding is not a club, and no one needs to see copious amounts of cleavage, or someone’s private parts. If you have to watch when you bend, it’s not church-wear!

    My wedding is going to be black tie, and yes, I will be upset if people show up in short dresses. Other “dress codes” I don’t think it is as big of a deal.

    I notice a lot of ladies wear “club wear” to a wedding in anticipation of the dance party afterwards. Personally, I find it rather annoying, bordering on disrespectful. The bride and groom have spent lots of money to make their wedding a lovely occasion and a short, tight, strapless, skanky outfit is not appropriate. Just my opinion.

    my JR MOH ( 19 so she shouldn’t be jr but she didn’t want to have real responsiblity so I down graded her lol) wants to wear a skin tight dress of mine that is my clubbing dress. I’m 5’4 and it hits me at the knee she is 6,3 ish – all the other girls have floor length dresses and she is kinda upset that I want her to get a different dress but… oh well lol.

    also  what are we calling “short” the circle I grew up in short was an inch above the knee. But to alot of people short is when your hym line hugs right under your bootie…

    so what are we calling short. I call short 2-3 inches above the knee depending on the body type- any shorter is bad for a wedding.

    i have noticed that a lot of the formal wear is looking like club wear.  i love a cute party dress just like everyone else but it needs to be worn for the appropriate occasion.

    a lot of my dresses are at knee length or shorter but not like some of these other micro-minis.

    how short is too short?  i draw the line when the skirt is so short that you need 2 hairdos for the occasion. Surprised

    I’m a live let live type of person so I tend to not concern myself with what others are doing or saying. So while I tend not to bothered by other people’s clothing, but when you are in danger of flashing your anatomy to me then I have an issue. I am a bit surprised at some of the super short dresses that people wear even to the club nevermind to weddings. Thankfully I have only seen it once or twice.
