I need some Bee advice in my life :). I’m attaching a photo of my dress, which actually flares out a bit more than in the photo, it kind of goes down into a triangle shape.
Our venue will most likely be in a historical mansion (fingers crossed!), but will at least be a more formal setting.
Can I do tea-length dresses with that combo? I know everything is leaning towards the formal side of things, but my girls all really want tea-length dresses, and I like the way they look too. My mom thinks we have to do long dresses, though.
I’m attaching a photo of our front-runner, too.

I think that it will look really nice.

I don’t see a problem with you doing that. I am also doing the same thing.

Absolutely! I see it all the time and did it myself! I had a long dress with beading, my BMs had red, strapless, tea-length dresses, we got married in an evening wedding in a very large, old, formal church and had our reception at a southern style mansion.
Go with what you and your girls love!

I voted yes, my bridesmaids are wearing tea-length dresses as well and my gown is also very formal. I think the dress that is your front runner is really pretty and can pass for formal- they don’t have to be long!

Yes! My Bridesmaid or Best Man are wearing tea length and im in a full length formal gown– and our venue is a museum!

I think it goes! My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are knee length and I really like them with my dress.

I’m doing the same, have long dress and bridesmaids are wearing t-length dresses…I love it!

I am one of the votes that says “nope” sorry. I really don’t think the two go well together. When I look at the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress, I think cocktail hour, garden party, etc. When I see your dress, I think fancy, elegant, formal, mansion style wedding. I just don’t picture the two together very well.
I can’t see the picture of the dress too well, if you are set on doing short dresses, maybe make sure they are a nice satin material or something to dress them up some.

I think that the tea-length is fine but the style of Bridesmaid or Best Man dress is too casual for your dress and venue. I would look for a Bridesmaid or Best Man that is more formal.

I think you should try to find a dressier Bridesmaid or Best Man dress. I think a formal gown and tea length are fine (that’s what I’m doing) as long as they’re the same level of formality.

@asdf: Could you please post a picture of your bm’s dresses? I’m not good at this whole matching thing, and I could really use some visuals! Much appreciated!
