I am getting married on May 25,2013. The ceremony is at 7pm because I want a candlelit ceremony. Technically, it will be dusk since the sun doesn’t set until after 8pm. At least the reception will be all candlelit! Anyway, I am only having one bridesmaid and her dress will be champagne. Should we go long or short? Thanks!

We are having an evening wedding on May 26, 2013 and my BMs are wearing short dresses, but they are lace. I thought it was a great compromise. I think you can do long or short because it is late spring!

Long! I also agree that you should find something ASAP

My girls were short for an evening wedding, but it was a more casual wedding.
your wedding sounds a bit more formal so I would vote long.

@DayDay: I’m doing short dresses for an evening wedding in a church! Its not traditional because it should be a formal event, but prices were a little crazy for a long dress

You can do short or long. Have her try on both options and pick the one you like best.

@jpalm13: Hey! We are date twins! How fun! Where are you honeymooning? As for the dress, I am leaning towards long but I’m so stinking indecisive. She wants a short one. I’m only having one bridesmaid so I’m hoping she can buy one off the rack somewhere and we won’t have to order.

I was going to do short initially because I like the contrast better and thought it was more wearable/fun for the girls but ended up choosing a long dress for the bridesmaids. Our ceremony is at 6pm and the wedding is formal/blacktie so the short dresses would not have been appropriate for the occasion. Definitely do long for your candlelit wedding! will look so gorgeous with her long champagne gown 🙂

I would say long, but either would work.
