ve been reading these boards for a while and getting lots of inspiration but finally got around to starting a profile so this is my first post! Im going to be having a winter wedding that is at a mountain lodge. I
ve had a difficult time trying to find bridesmaid dresses though. Im looking for something in a cranberry color and have been looking at long dresses because it will be so cold but it seems that the prices for most of the nice long dresses are $200+ and I was hoping to keep it under $200. Today while browsing dresses I came across a new idea. Why not have my bridesmaids wear cute cranberry short dresses with thick tights to keep them warm. My wedding will be pretty low key with only about 70 people so it might fit the vibe. I`ve attached my photo inspiration. What do you think, cute or tacky??? Would love to get your input.

I think that could be very cute. But if you are worried about them being cold, why do strapless? Bare shoulders make me so much colder than bare legs! Will they wear a sweater over the dress?

I think it can be cute! Esp paired with a cute gray sweater shrug! 🙂

I totally agree! A sweater, bolero or dress with sleeves will be a must. Just trying to show the general idea I was going for with the tights.

If you are going to be in cold weather, it makes no sense to have strapless dresses. Contrary to belief, they are not the only option. But the overall idea with the tights sounds cute.

I think the tights idea is a good one, and pair it with a shawl or shrug of some kind, and I think you’re good to go! Plus, I assume, you’re having your wedding inside and therefore it won’t be THAT cold once all is said and done, right? They can always wear their winter coats going from one location to the next.
ETA: I think the OP posted that image as her inspiration picture, because it showed a short dress with tights. I don’t think she’s necessarily getting that exact dress (a.k.a. strapless). Plus it would be nice if her BMs can decide what kind of dress they want (strapless or not), as long as they are all the same length and color.
