    I think it’s fine. Just be aware that if any bridesmaids have a bit of a butt, it’ll look shorter in back and they might want to go a size up to be mindful of that (I have this problem with short dresses). It’s definitely not too short, though.

    I think it’s pretty short.  I rarely wear things that short even on a casual basis so you can chalk it up to that if you want to…  I’m pretty tall and that would make me a little nervous!  I do have a sweet idea to lengthen it though!  I saw a photo of a wedding that had the bridesmaids in black dresses with a petticoat/slip showing underneath  that was a vivid contrasting color… the photo just showed that the slips matched the bright flowers of the wedding, and each girl wore a different shade of slip… (The slips didn’t really look like a slip but just a different colored layer of the dress.  It really looked stylish and just perfect for a bride who loved bright colors, but didn’t feel like her friends had to wear fushia, orange and lime green dresses.)

    @Missbliss:Such a cute idea, then they could take it off later.

    I personally think it is a little too short. If I were wearing it as a bridesmaid I would be uncomfortable with the length. That being said, I think it is something you should talk with your bridesmaids about. If they are comfortable in the dress, then why not? Especially if it is what you really want.

    I think its pretty short.  Anything shorter than knee length then you have to worry about sitting and exposing yourself.  Other than that its a really cute dress.
