I think it’s fine to just say you want the full length dresses.  If you go with a lower-priced option (i.e. David’s, Alfred Angelo, etc.) full-length are probably going to be pretty close in price to the shorter dresses.

In my opinion, I don’t think tea-length dresses are that re-wearable.  Cocktail length, yes, but I think tea-length is tough to wear again.  So I think you’d be in the same boat with tea and full-length so just go with the one you like better :o)

I say go with full-length, maybe you can find a design that could easily be shortened after the wedding for your MOH?

@JoonBee:  She only said she “prefers” tea-length for rewearabilty…she didn’t say she won’t wear anything but tea-length.  Just tell her that you’ve decided to go with full-length and send her some choices.  I think you’re worrying a little too much and this will be fine.

If she is upset – explain that you will get a dress that could be easily shortened and if you can afford it offer to pay for the alterations for her! Then it is win win!

I think it would be fine to let her know exactly what you told us. You took a closer look at other bridesmaid dresses, and you prefer the full length better. I’m sure she’ll understand, especially since you’re letting her choose her own dress. And I like FMM’s idea about her choosing a dress that could be easily shortened to her liking so that she can wear it elsewhere too!

@JoonBee: Yeah, just tell it to her the same way you told us.  You spoke too soon, looked again and made a different decision.  She’ll be fine with it.
