Can you get her to shorten it, so it’s at least the same length?

IMO, it’ll make her look like your MOH. If that’s what she is, then it’s cool. If not, I think it may look a little odd if it’s a different length than the other two. Can she find one in the same length or get it hemmed?

So they’ll all be the same color? As long as that’s the case and all of them are okay with it, I’d let it go. I think they’re going to look similar enough that it won’t matter to anyone visually (especially if the girls are of varying heights.)

Yep I think it will look a bit weird if shes not MOH. how many BMs total? I’d suggest they either all wear different dresses, or all the same. Sorry 🙁 you’re allowed to tell them this, it is your wedding afterall lol 🙂

I was in a wedding a few years ago with four BMs (including the MOH).  The bride, like you, gave us free range except saying it needed to be David’s Bridal Marine.  One other BM and I went shopping the same day on opposite sides of the country, and we both just so happened to pick the same dress.  The bride told the other two, and the MOH ended up picking the same dress, too.  It was only one girl who ended up as the odd one out (she walks with a cane and has some weird curvature in her spine, so the straight strapless cut made her look crooked, and she opted for a halter top instead). She wasn’t the MOH, but it looked fine.

I think it’ll look great! It’s not that much longer than the other dresses.  She’s your sister so she can definitely be special 🙂

Honestly they look like pretty similar style dresses any way. Many guests may not even notice.

That happened in my bridal party, and it wasn’t noticeable since everything was the same color and fabric – she doesn’t stick out in the pictures or anything.  These dresses are really similar, so I wouldn’t worry about it.
