    The length of dress is usually dictated by the formality of the event. However if you are going to be taking extensive pictures outside, you may want to take your bridesmaids feelings into account as far as length. After all, just because you have to suffer in a long dress, doesn’t necessarily mean you have to make your bridesmaids suffer, too.

    If you want long, do long. Plain and simple. This is YOUR wedding.

    With that said and comfort in mind, July probably warrants a short dress. What state is the wedding in? How much will you be outside (outdoor reception?)?

    Our wedding is pretty formal, but I did not want them to wear long dresses…esp in August heat.  My mom hates it, but I let them choose whatever shorter length they want (tea or cocktail).

    Since my dress has a high low hemline, I also had this question. I ended up letting the girls pick whatever dress they wanted because it was a casual affair (so far one has a floor length and another has a tea length- and they look great together!). J.Crew Wedding offers some of their dresses in both long and short lengths, so that could be an option incase you don’t want to have to chose (just let your BMs pick!)
