    The first one looks like it will be the most flattering on all of the girls. It will most likely be flattering on your plus size bridesmaid, and the shorter bridesmaid can hem it a little so that it is a tasteful knee length (or right above the knee), which can be flattering for a shorter person (I’m only 5’0 so I speak from experience – usually right to the knee or above the knee is the most elongating for a shorter person). I usually like long dresses but for a backyard reception short seems the most appropriate. It needs to be easy for the girls to get around.

    I love the black and green dresses.

    I wish I could get my girls to wear something like that but my Maid/Matron of Honor is VERY top heavy. Like a F or G size.  And I don’t think it would be to flattering on her with the one shoulder!!

    Long dresses, in my opinion, are better suited for winter. Especially the one you chose.

    I prefer short dresses because they are cheaper and more likely to be worn again.

    All three are very pretty!

    I like longer dresses better but not for a backyard reception. The top 2 look almost identical so I would pick whichever 1 is the most flattering for your largest bridesmaid.
