    They are all pretty, but I’d have to vote halter because I constantly worry about strapless bridesmaid dresses. There is nothing worse than seeing the tugging/adjusting/slipping tango throughout the ceremony and reception!

    I don’t think short dresses go well with tuxes and formal weddings. I agree with ChaCha that I think most bridesmiads are more comfortable in something that is not strapless and I think in pictures it looks much better (less skin showing)

    I voted for the original halter

    hmm. the dessy dress is definitely my favorite, but for the sake of fitting all shapes and sizes, i’d go with the halter.

    I think #2 is generally a more flattering style if you have girls that are all different shapes and sizes.  I would say my least favorite is #3.  I am a little curvier and I know that I would feel self conscious about my stomach and my hips based on that cut.

    are you set on all of them wearing the same dress? what if you had them choose between 2 dresses (or even maybe 3) I was thinking you could have them choose between the original halter and the long gray dress. It is pretty much the same fabric and that way the girls could just wear whatever looks best on them (especially because you said you have girls of different shapes/sizes)

    I like the halter dress a lot if your bridesmaids all like it.  I had two that refused to wear halters, so that was out.  I’m having grey dresses as well, and one thing we found was that in chiffon or other matte fabric it kind of washed the girls out and looked blah.  Grey’s a colour you have to be very careful with I think.

    As a plus-sized girl, I voted for #2. My wedding dress is similar as is the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses my sister is considering. The cut is flattering to all sizes/shapes and it does an awesome job of hiding any tummy “issues” =)

    I think you should consider using different styles for your girls if they are that varying in body type.  I too have girls who range in height and body type, so I picked an empire waist dress for my pear shaped girls, and one that created curves for my little skinny minnies.  My bridesmaids are all thrilled that I took the time to find a shapes that would be flattering for them rather than try to put them all in the same dress.  However, if you do go with just one style, I love #2- I think the shape and the flowing material would be lovely on all your ladies.

    I love #2! This is the exact style I want for my bridesmaids. I think it would be great on a variety of shapes.
