    short! Mixing short and long kinda looks odd IMO but if its something that you decide you want for your day, then by all means!

    I like them both. I think that if you do both it will look great. if you wrap one short and one long the sameway and had 2 diff ways it would tie them together well. IMO

    Can you go to the store and try a few options out? That might help you decide how it looks on all your girls.

    I say go with the short.  the long dress will just make the shorter girls look so small.

    usually i’m ok with mixing short and long, but the pic of the short and the long dress doesn’t look right to me.  and i agree with your BMs – i think long dresses will make the girls under 5′ look really short. so i voted all short.

    I think short are super cute and definitely can wear again. Unless you absolutley want all the girls the same height, I wouldn’t worry about them being the same…. that’s not them anyway! Let them be comfortable too… no one really looks at their feet anyway.. they will all be looking at you!

    I think short will look best, especially with the bright color.  Unless your short girls are wearing 6″ heels, there is still going to be a pretty drastic difference, so I’m not sure it matters what kind of shoes they all wear.  I think it will look fine if they are the same color and style- so, gold strappy sandals, or black pumps.  Then your girls can wear whatever heel height they want to, and the shoes will still look similiar.
