    I don’t see why not.  If it fits with the aesthetic and formality of your wedding, go for it 🙂  I’m sure your girls will be happy to have separates that they can rewear to work etc.

    I think they are cute, but I think I still prefer a dress. There are many cute lighter dresses out there. I would ask your girls what they want though, and if you love it and they are happy with it, then go for it.

    While I like the look of a skirt and top, I am more comfortable in a sundress in extreme heat.  Maybe you could find a dress in a different material than satin?

    I was in a wedding before where I had a skirt and a strapless/corset type top.  I loved it and was much more comfortable in the 2 pieces then I was in other BM’s dresses.

    I love the idea! And your maids will definitely be able to wear a cute skirt again.

    Personally I would rather wear a light dress than two seperate pieces as I find it way more comfortable. I wore two seperate pieces in an August wedding and we were all miserable as the skirt kept riding up and the shirt kept getting untucked and we were fussing with it all night and we ended up being so sweaty. If you could find a light flowy dress then I think that might be a better option (just my opinion)

    Cute but would definitely be warmer than a dress- because the blouse has to be tucked in= no air flow.

    I say go for it! It will probably be cheaper and re-wearable for your maids!
