Well poo. I wanted my Bridesmaid or Best Man to wear yellow heels, so I picked short dresses. We ordered them a few weeks ago, and now I’m thinking I should have gone with long dresses. I think it’s going to be cold (possibly 50 degrees Fahrenheit) on our wedding day, and that people will think I’m ridiculous for making them wear short dresses. Our wedding is indoors, but we will have take pictures outside as well.
I told my mom I thought it would be so neat if it snowed on our wedding, but now I’m hoping for a warm front to come through.
Do you regret a wedding decision you’ve made?

I’m sure they’ll look great and won’t mind the cold – I got married on ice and was worried about the same thing with my BMs and myself, but it was totally fine. In fact, I regret wearing stockings (I haaate them, but thought it would be a good idea, since it was cold), I hated how they looked in pictures.

50 degrees isnt too cold for short dresses at all! That is such a normal temp where I live and I wear skirts to work all the time.
Are the shoes open toed? If not, they can always wear stockings if they want.
I would, however, not do too many pictures outside. Do most of them inside.

It will be fine! They will look great. I think us brides worry over every single detail when planning our weddings, but the reality is that no one will notice or even care. As I’ve been planning, its so helpful to just remind myself of so many weddings I’ve been to as a guest and how I never thought anything was wrong with any of them. My bridesmaids have been one thing Ive worried so much about but I don’t even look at them when I go to weddings, I pretty much just stare at the bride, because its her day 🙂

I got married in February in Ohio with outdoor pics and my girls wore short strapless dresses! They were fine. I got them wraps and we only did a couple pictures outside. Short dresses are just a lot more appropriate for a lot of weddings I think…. long dresses seem very fancy.

Mine is in March in the upper midwest, it’s going to be cold (maybe even knee deep snow) and my girls will be in knee-length dresses. I don’t plan on doing a ton of shots outdoors, but really, most of the guests will be in cocktail length dresses anyway. Floor length in winter can almost be messier and worse (with the salt on the ground) than being cold for just a few minutes of photos. Don’t sweat it (and bring hot chocolate if you really think you’ll need to make it up to them). Hehe.

I think it will be fine, especially if they will be inside for most of the time! We’re getting married in December and my ladies are wearing knee length dresses, but we’re also in Georgia and the temperature can vary from the 30’s to 60’s! That said, why not get a cute sweater, wrap or bolero jacket for them if you’re worried about them being cold?

@indibee: I was totally thinking about having hot chocolate on standby! Too funny!
Thanks for making me feel better. There’s nothing I could do about it now, except hope the bees would say it would be fine. So thanks!!
