    if you’re aiming for formal, i would definitely go with long bm dresses. but why not let them choose a long dress? just choose a fabric and color and let them choose the style like you would a short dress. mismatched dresses don’t have to be any less formal.

    jcrew runs this sale fairly often, so it’s not like a now or never. if you can’t decide, wait…preferably until you have your own dress. that way you can choose what fabric will be best.

    How long does this sale last? cos its seems a bit early to buy Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses. Will the sale come back on closer to the wedding?

    Also it really depends on which look you prefer, I dont like long dresses so I chose short dresses for my bms but they are all wearing the same dress except from my moh

    With the level of formality and time of year you’re going for I think long dresses would be best. I just think tuxes and knee length dresses might look off. If the price is the problem then keep looking. I bet you can get BCBG dresses in Jan on sale (actually everything goes majorly on sale in Jan).

    I would really be upset to spend over $200 on a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress, honestly.  Especially a long one since there aren’t a ton of places to re-wear it.  I wouldn’t want to spend much over $150 or so for any dress as a Bridesmaid or Best Man or MoH since honestly, its hard to wear them again usually.  Although this sale seems good why not wait – I’m sure you could find less expensive dresses that are just as nice if not nicer.

    I would go short–they can def wear again, and black dresses are formal enough themselves, as long as they are made from a dressy fabric (no cotton, or chiffon) which they look like they are (I can’t tell what material from picture) . I’m from SC too, and think that this would be formal enough for a 6pm or earlier wedding, but not later. 

    plus as you know it could be 80 degrees November 4 in Charleston, or 60 degrees…haha! never know!

    I voted based on your date. November will probably be a little chillier. I’d go with long.

    When I think of formal, I don’t immediately think of long bridesmaid dresses. IMO you can still have a formal event with short bridesmaid dresses. The black is really classy..and depending on the jewelry chosen, can be really elegant and formal. I really love the second choice in the short section. I just may have to check it out for myself! Good luck!
