@MSbride2Bee:  i got my BM dresses from AA. i gave them the choice of any dress style they wanted.  all are wearing short dresses.

we did get an october date but we looking at october and november.  the girls would have picked the same dresses regardless of the date.

i went to a november wedding last year and the BMs all wore knee length dresses.

Only if it is indoors and they will be warm enough. Either wide i think thats rather rude.

@MSbride2Bee:  Short dresses will be fine. Those of us who wear dresses to work do not switch to long dresses for the winter. In fact, a short dress may be easier for them to manage- no long hem dragging in puddles or snow.

Since MOST ( ?all) wedding venues have indoor heating, I don’t think the BM’s being cold is even an issue.

They can always add a cardi, jacket or a bolero if they are chilly.

@MSbride2Bee:  I’m getting married in February and all my girls are wearing Alfred Sung bridesmaid dresses in midnight. I let them all pick out their own dress too. I see nothing wrong with a short dress in the fall/winter! Plus, short dresses are more affordable and I don’t know anyone who will wear a long bridesmaid dress ever again. You could always add tights too if you think they may get cold. But as PPs have pointed out, there will be heat and if you have a group of people that like to party they will probably be grateful to not have a long dress weighing them down!
