Has anyone had a combo or plan to have a combo of knee length and long Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses? I have a mix of slim and full figured BM’s. I want EVERYONE comfortable and feeling good. I am not the bride that is about “can’t no one look better than me”. One of my BM’s thinks that knee length is too “sexy” and will take away from the bride. I am like “huh??”.
My BFF is a tall blond with KILLER legs, and my sister is shorter and petite but also slim. I can’t see either of them with anything OTHER than a knee length dress. That’s just their style. A couple BM’s are versatile and can get away with both knee length and long. Then a couple BM’s can only do long.
All dresses will be the same color AND material. But just wondering what the combo of the two different lengths would look like.
Anyone do this combo? Anyone have pic inspiration???

I think that so long as there is some unifying factor (color or style, or fabric) that you’re fine. People are going to be paying more attention to you and your Fiance, anyhow.

I just decided this myself this past weekend. My Maid/Matron of Honor is much more comfortable in a full length dress, however my two BM’s wanted knee length. So they have all choosen their own dresses, but they are ALL in the same shade of eggplant, all by the same designer, and all the same material!! Everyone is just so different and I really just wanted them to be comfortable.

@justvonne: I hope so!! lol I have gotten A TON of backlash for letting them all have different dresses so I am hoping it works out well enough that people will leave me alone! LOL

I have the same problem with my bridal party. 6 girls ranging from size 2 to 22 and ages at least 15 years spread. So I let the girls that wanted the short dress that I picked have them and the girls that felt more comfortable in a tea lenght have that. Being in wedding parties myself I wanted my girls to be happy with their dress and actually want to wear them. My color is coral that I stuck to. I think it will be fine. I’ll post pics after the wedding if you want to see how it turned out. 72 more days!
