    I personally am leaning towards the short dress, I think it’s festive and cute and lends to the whimsy that is Disney.  However, if you want the wedding to have a more formal feel to it, then the 2nd dress would be the one to go with.

    Since it’s a day time ceremony, and it’s during warm weather, I would probably lean toward the short one. Am I correct to assume that you would want her in the same dress at the afternoon reception and at the evening party?Are any parts of it outdoors or is it all indoors in the formal locations?

    I’m having a similar debate myself…I can’t decide on long vs short, fabric, etc. As for price, you can check the price on netbride.com (you email them the style number and they email you back a price quote). You can also call individual store.

    I’ve seen plenty of short dresses that look formal to me. It’s all in the material and style I think. Most of the time, I don’t see too many very flattering long dresses. They have the tendency to look too prom-y for the most part.

    You could definitely do a more formal shorter dress, though. A “fancier” updo could really help bring it all together.

    I really like the short dress.  The long dress is nice but I don’t know that it looks more formal.

    I’m not sure about the prices for your dresses. I called the bridal salons in town for prices before i had my girls get the dresses. My girls are wearing alfred angelo and the dress was $171.40. I can’t remember how much it was originally, but they got 10% off…$171 was the price after tax and all that. My bridal salon has a website with prices if you want to take a look and see if those 2 dresses are available: formalelegance.net

    oh & this is the dress my girls are wearing. so that might give you a price idea for the long dress.

    i think since your wedding is an afternoon wedding with afternoon reception and a dinner dessert thingy, AND in florida you are fine with short dresses.

    i think short dresses can be both formal and casual. its the fabric and length that lend itself to the formality along with the accessories.

    of the two pics you posted though, i actually like the longer dress though, it reminds me more of disney. the short one is cute too though!!!!

    ps. im having a black tie optional wedding and my Bridesmaid or Best Man are wearing chocolate satin tealength dresses. i think its more than formal enough for the occasion – and its gonna be around 90 degrees when i get married so long dresses would just be mean!
