I’m having a pretty casual wedding with a slightly country/wildflower theme. The guys will be wearing gray suits, white shirts, and navy ties. I’m not really having wedding “colors”. I really wanted my girls to wear floral dresses and I’ve been having a helluva time trying to find the right ones! I really like these, but I’m wondering if the red will be too bright? Here’s the link for more pictures.

Its cute, but way too short.

Yes, definitely too short. If your BMs are shorter than this model then it could work.

@MichiganGirl24: This is a really cute dress but it is very bright and very short I think it will really detract from you the bride! If you want a floral pattern what about something a little less bold and longer like this!

I liked it until I scrolled and saw how short it is.

Agreed, my personal opinion is that they are short. But if you like them, go for it! 🙂

Way way way too short. If I’m to wear that, I’ll need to wear pants underneath.

Not too bright, but definitely too short!

If the bridesmaids are moving around a lot, you could probably charge the guests for the show 😉
I think on your wedding day you don’t want them worried about flashing something they shouldn’t, so go with something a little longer. Colour-wise and design though, they seem fine to me!

@MichiganGirl24: Cute dress! But for bridesmaids I agree, a little too short.
What if you simply told your bridesmaids to pick a short (not THAT short) floral patterned dress? You could approve it before they buy, of course, but with no ‘colors’ and in the spirit of a ‘wildflower’ theme perhaps a no two alike thing would work? I let my bridesmaids choose their own dress (I just gave them an approximate swatch — the style, length, etc was up to them) and the pictures look gorgeous. Their bouquets were wildflowers and it fit perfectly.
I found some pictures when I searched for “mismatched floral bridemaid dresses”: http://www.intimateweddings.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/vintage_bridesmaid_dresses-2.jpg
Just a thought. Best of luck!
