    I like #2 the best.  Shorter dresses always just seem more versitile, and straps are a must for me on most dresses.

    I vote for 2- I personally don’t do strapless, because they don’t work with my figure. Also, the last wedding I went to the girls wore strapless dresses and I kid you not EVERY single Bridesmaid or Best Man had really bad tan lines.

    I picked #2 but I also like #4, I personally wouldnt feel 100% comfortable in a strapless dress. Dress #2 is very versatile and your bridesmaids could probably wear it again (and again and again), Dress #4 is a little more elegant but more $$$ and less likely to be reworn…

    I love #2- it’s classy and simple.

    As for the weather issue, October can be a tricky month depending on where you’re from.  By me, it can be in the 30s or nin the 80s!  No joke.  I was in a wedding in December- we wore short dresses.  They’re just so much easier in general.  We dealt with the half hour in the cold and moved on with life.  It wasn’t that bad at all.

    @kansas_nurse:  Number 2. Straps would definitely make me feel much more comfortable and I feel like that silhouette would look very lovely on a bunch of different body types.

    I like #2.  It is the most rewearable, IMO. 

    I personally detest long dresses unless it is a fancy gown.  The thin layer of fabric won’t really do anything to repel the temperature.  They are going to need to wear tights or nylons if it is cold.

    Definitely #2! V-neck is flattering on almost everyone and short dresses are easy b/c you don’t have to worry about length alterations.

    I personally prefer non-strapless dresses since I don’t like having to constantly pull the bodice up and I don’t like the pressure strapless dresses often put on the bust.

    I think the second dress looks comfy and lovely and I’d wear it again –  If I got to choose, #2 has my vote!

    I like number one the best, but I would be so much more confortable in something with straps. No worries about strapless bras of funky tanlines.

    Number two is awesome, wide straps, made from a jersey like fabric, so it isn’t going to cling in weird sport, fit loose and is flattering. Don’t be surprise if you ladies get a smaller size, the fabric has a ton of give.

    Number three is nice, but the bust is really small, if you have any ladies that are more top heavy they are going to have a hard time with this dress. Also funky tan lines and a strapless bra- no thanks. There is also a weird piece that comes off the back that I would be guarenteed to play with all night long.

    Number four the one stap is soooo overbearing on anyone that has a small frame. Also that dress is frorm the ‘party dress’ collection, meaning that it is not a bridesmaid dress, the store gets a few sizes and colours in and when they are gone they are gone. Making our bridesmaids hunt down a dress at another store, or worse having to order it on line is going to flat out suck (just because you can order something on line does not mean that you can order it in store) so I would immediatly vito that dress based on the potential avalibility issues alone.
