I think anything above the knee is too short, since the girls will have diff body types and it can look fine on one and too short on another.

They are adorable.  I think if they fall just above the knees its fine, but if its more than a few inches it might be too short.  Are your girls tall or short or medium?  The model is very tall, so it won’t be as short on medium height or short girls.

Also- it kind of looks like there is a hem that could be let down?  I would wait until you get them and the girls can try them on to make any final decisions.

I’d say depending on how tall the person is wearing them they could be too short.. I think anything that doesn’t fall right at the knee is too short.

it does look like it might be a little too short on some girls. it will depend on your bm’s body types. letting out the hem a little could be a great idea.

OO! cute dress!

but personally, for my taste it does seem a little short. I was in a wedding as the Maid/Matron of Honor recently, and if I wore your Bridesmaid or Best Man dress– I dont know how comfortable I would be having to bend over to fix the bride’s train!!

It looks short…

As others have said, if your BMs are short, it may still be ok.  However, if they are average height or tall I think it would be too short for a church wedding.

It’s really cute! It’s hard to tell if it’s too short since likely the model is like 6′ tall. You won’t know for sure until your girls try them on. If they’re too short and there’s not much of a hem, what about adding some black lace or fabric to the bottom?

They’re not that short, but it really depends on your girls. The same dress can just look really skimpy on one person and totally decent on another person.

if it is too shory– since there is black lace on top– it shouldnt be too hard to add a black lace under-lay to lengthen the dress a little! (although the lace is see through! ahha)

I don’t think they are too short (my sisters had pretty short dresses for my wedding).  I’d have them try them on if possible and then make your decision.  As some have mentioned, depending on their height it could look completely different on them.

@April11bride: I think it looks fine!! I bought a dress for my two Bridesmaid or Best Man and we didnt ralize how short it was till the day of the wedding!! oi! but it was still tasteful and looked fine…i think i a mini skirt would be bad though!

It is very cute, but what is the hollow to hem length? I’m 5’5″ and anything shorter than 30″ hollow to hem is SCANDALOUSLY SHORT.

If you have any average/moderately tall ladies I can imagine that is going to look a little risque for church.
