wow your dress is amazing!

If you are worried about the photos order them in sepia or b&w, very classy and then all the colors match

you can get pics with your maids in their dresses (will look great) and pics with just his guys (will look great.)

 there will be a lot of green if you take pics outside and i think the whole thing will look nice!

I was in a wedding just this past sunday, where the bridesmaids wore the 2nd dress in a green color.  it was very pretty AND – the Maid/Matron of Honor wore long while the bridesmaids wore short (below the knee).  

 is there any way you can return or sell the short dress (since you dont seem to like it very much) and get the second dress in a shorter version?

PM me if you want to see a picture of how they looked!

I’m sorry you’re feeling upset about the dresses….but I think it’s all going to look really good together! Maybe simpler style bouquets for the ladies would help give some uniformity? Personally I don’t like it when everything is too matchy-matchy. And your wedding dress is a-m-azing.

If you’re displeased with these dresses, what alternative would you prefer? Could you show us some pictures of what you think would be better?

I like them too.   I wish you could see the same. maybe if you took a break you will feel better when you come back.

Does the celdaon color in the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses match any color in the tartans?  Could you tie the dresses to the kilts with a sash of the same tartan?  Or perhaps have the colors of the tartans in the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets?

If two dresses are short and two long, could you arrange your BMs for the processional as:

short dress -long dress -short dress -long dress

If you can still change the dresses, and that would make you happy, go ahead.  Maybe the Bms will be disappointed that they’ll have to wear a dress they don’t like as much.  But it sounds like they were giving you a hard time to begin with, which is uncool.

I’m so sorry you’re having the second thoughts about the bridesmaid dresses. Maybe for pictures, you could have a neutral colored couch that the girls with the long dresses sit on and the girls with the short stand in the back of? Try to think of some "props" that might hide the short dresses or make them look long. A fun wrap would be awesome.

On a completely different note, WOW on your dress. It’s gorgeous! I absolutely LOVE it. You’re going to look stunning, and that’s what matters most

I like the dresses and I think they are a great complement to your own dress!

 

Also, I really don’t forsee a big issue with the processional since both BMs are wearing the short. I don’t think it would be bad with the JBM and the Maid/Matron of Honor wearing the long. But, I’m so sorry you feel frustrated!!!

Aww, poor thing.  I feel for ya.  Personally, I can’t see how her Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses could look that much better.  But really, hoe good do you want them to look anyway.  (Just kidding.)

I think your dresses are great.  They are fairly simple, which means they will still look nice in the photos 15 years from now.  And you can do things to embellish them.  Or have amazing bridal bouquets that really stand out.

You are going to look amazing.  Isn’t that the best part?  Are you happy with your own dress.  I love it.  There are some brides who are not actually happy with their dreses.  I bet they’d rather love theirs, and not be too crazy about their Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses (if they had a choice.)  And some brides don’t get what they want in a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress for various reasons.  (BM sizes, one’s prego, etc.)  Who knows, your Father-In-Law might have an issue like that to deal with.

I don’t know if my rambling made you feel better.   It will all work out.
