Fiance and i are having mixed gender bridal parties, i will have 1 guy on my side, he will have 2 women, one being his best man … i was thinking of maybe having the girls on his side, who are both in their mid 30s (35 and 34) wear longer dresses in the same fabric as the girls on my side. like this (sorry for the pic size, for some reason wedding bee wont let me edit these pics?):
would that look weird to have a mix of short and long? FWIW, both groomswomen love long flowy dresses, which is why i thought of this to begin with.

I think it would look great! 🙂 I was even considering have my Maid/Matron of Honor wear a long dress and my other two Bridesmaid or Best Man wear short so them being on opposite sides I think it would look awesome! 🙂 And if they like the long then thats just a bonus!

@bostongirl27: Really nice idea! I think it would look great 🙂
@Miss.GrahamCracker: I wanted to do that too!… but since I’ll just have one Maid/Matron of Honor and no other bridesmaids, I’m thinking tea-length for me, floor length for her.

I think that will look good! It’s a smart way to create a visual seperation between the attendants from yours and your FH’s sides.
Also, who makes those dresses? I love them!

thanks ladies! i just keep seeing random threads now and then that say never mix long and short or it will look disjointed. but i like the idea of finding a way to offset his gals from mine…. no clue how ill set my guy off from his yet.
@MrsLoebbs: they are j. crew, pricey, but beautiful

Saw the title and was going to say hell no if they were all on your side, but I think that’s a perfect way to differentiate the bridesmaids and groomswomen!! gorgeous dresses, too.

I think it is a great idea! I had my niece (12) as a junior Bridesmaid or Best Man, wear the shorter version of my BM’s dresses and I thought it looked great!! Since they are on either sides of the aisle, I think it will be a good way to differentiate them and still look good.
