    You could also consider putting your Maid/Matron of Honor in a different dress than the other BM’s. I do LOVE the long ones. I’d wear that again in a heartbeat if I were in your wedding! 🙂

    I really like the short dresses and would personally rather have that in my closet. However, when do you need to order? Could the other girls order now and Maid/Matron of Honor hold off a couple more months then if she is expecting, she could wear the long dress (cordinates really well with short and she IS the MOH) and if not, she could order the short one maybe 3 month out? This way she could go up a size just in case but generally know she won’t have a large bump.

    What do your BMs prefer?

    The short one is super cute and I know if I was in the wedding I would want to wear it 🙂 It’s not uncommon for a Maid/Matron of Honor to get a different dress and look you already found one! I think they look good together!

    You said your Maid/Matron of Honor is ttc. She may very well not be pregnant–not everyone gets pregnant exactly when they want to. Can you hold off ordering for a while? Or order the dresses for the rest of the girls and then if Maid/Matron of Honor is pregnant either go for the alterations or find her a different dress? I love the first one!

    I like the idea of putting the moh in the long one if she’s the preg one. If not would the first one work for her? They go pretty well together so anything will work.

    I love the first one but the second one is absolutely stunning.

    I would have my BMs in the long one and wear the first one in white as my wedding dress. So cute!

    They can always cut the length off if they wanted to keep wearing the dresses

    The cost isn’t any less if you alter the long version of the first into an empire waist right? (You do know theres a long version of that one I hope?)

    I think it’s hard to find something you love, that all your bridesmaids can afford, and look good in. I voted for the 2nd dress – I think it’s fine to have them all wear the same dress, because you can accessorize them differently, your MOHs could wear different accessories, or have different hair or something that sets them apart from the other bridesmaids.

    Or you could have the MOHs wear the long dresses, and bridesmaids wear the short ones. I’m assuming that the alterations to empire waist was only for Maid/Matron of Honor who may be pregnant? So if she wears the long dress, the other dress would not have to be altered, just ordered in navy blue which would reduce the cost of the dress. Would that cost be okay with your bridesmaid?

    I like the short one better, because I’d most likely wear that one again.
