@lovesunshine:  Is your wedding an evening wedding or is an afternoon? That can come into play with the dresses. Also, what do your girls like? A few of my girls said that they wanted long dresses, so I decided to go with that.

On the color, you can pick whatever color you want. If it’s a fall wedding, deeper colors work. Like a nice deep red/pink or a deep purple. But pretty much whatever you want. My wedding is in the summer and I’m going with a ballet pink.

But a color like this would work for the fall/winter:

@lovesunshine:  My sister got married in October and we had beautiful dark red chiffon dresses, quite similar in color to what the PP posted.  They were awesome.  I think that a dark colored dress in a lighter fabric (chiffon, organza, etc) can be less…oppressive feeling than heavier fabrics (satin, taffeta, etc).

What colors do you like?

ETA:  I say long for a Fall wedding, but you could really go either way, especially if you live in a warmer climate.

@lovesunshine:  Like someone else said, a chiffon is definitely less oppressive. I might be biased because I picked chiffon dresses but I think that it just looks nice and a flowy.

If you don’t want to pick anything dark, you don’t have to. But I think that a nice eggplant purple would look great without being too much. Also, some designers make luminscent chiffon fabrics which add a little something to it because it almost shimmers in the light, so that also can make it less dark.

I’d say long! It looks more traditional in my opinion.

Long! I think short looks weird in the winter.

I think it depends on your venue. We are having an outdoor wedding so went with short dresses. I like the idea of shorter dresses for BMs so that the bride can shine in her gorgeous gown!

Your wedding is in December so I think long dresses would be appropriate. Mine is also December so I picked long chiffon dresses in plum. Short dresses are usually reserved for spring and summer weddings.
