@KendraKat: umm… it’s YOUR wedding, why should you have to change YOUR dress for her? you look great in it! i have a tea length dress and my girls are in knee length ones for the same reason you said. i say just help her pay for a new, shorter dress instead. she can easily get something on sale – i got an email from DB that they’re having a bridesmaid dress sale right now – try them or the mall!

If she’s up for it, see if she could get her dress hemmed to knee length.  It will be much cheaper than getting a new dress (probably under $50), and you could even offer to help pay if you want.

I agree with @elliestan: it is your wedding so you should decide what dress you want to wear and then decide what style of dress your Bridesmaid or Best Man should wear. I think she does have a right to express her frustration since she now has four weeks to alter her dress or get a new one, but you should just apoligise for changing your mind but be firm and make sure she does hem the dress or get a new one.

Buy her a Bridesmaid or Best Man new dress, rather than getting a new wedding dress.  Cheap, easy, done.

I LOVE you in your dress – DO NOT buy a new wedding dress!  I think it’s more than reasonable to ask her to shorten the one she has (and honestly, it looks like it could be easily done) or buy another dress.
