So I went to make another payment on my Maggie Divina this weekend, and the consultant showed me a nice dress that was knee length and had the same design pattern of my dress. She stated that the dresses should be short, and I be the only one with a long dress…
This is my top long dress I am considering (without the flower)
tea length is a happy medium:
or for short going this route so everyone feels comfy up top

Your wedding your choice. *I* think short/medium is better, but it’s not my wedding. If you prefer long, go for it.

@futuremrsmendez: I think the focus will remain on you regardless of the type of bridesmaid dresses you go for. If you want long dresses for the girls, I think you should get them. Long dresses can look really elegant and beautiful, but it’s not as though they’ll shine more than you do just because they’re wearing a long gown. For what it’s worth, I wore a long bridesmaid dress in a close friend’s wedding several years ago, I’m wearing a long bridesmaid dress this September in my cousin’s wedding, and though I haven’t decided for sure the exact style of dress I want the girls to wear in my wedding yet, I’m 100% sure I’ll be going with long bridesmaid dresses.

I voted for long and elegant like you want. I liked a similar style dress, but all of the bridesmaids wanted short soo I gave in.

I don’t think you’re going to “blend in” if your ‘maids where long dresses, thats a thought that never crossed my mind at all. I have always loved the elegance of long dresses but for spring I think shorter would be more appropriate, especially if you’re not doing anything super formal venue-wise. I love the Divina and hope to be a Divina bride too 🙂

@angelinthesnowxo: Yeah that’s what I thought too
@FutureMrsKelly2014: Yeah that’s the other thing…I am having a spring wedding. I just wish the first one had a shorter length lol. Will try to find it. But I am having an evening wedding (starts at 5 pm.)

I am firmly in the long Bridesmaid or Best Man dress camp, especially if your dress/wedding is fairly dressy. I think short dresses are cute for more casual weddings, but long dresses are just so elegant and more flattering on just about everyone.
I wouldn’t recommend tea length because it is quite easily unflattering on most people!

If you are having a formal elegant wedding go long! Especially if the weather is cool or it’s indoors. I promise you, you will stand out.

I feel like because of the high neckline, the shorter dress would be nice 🙂 But the long dress looks great too!

Long for formal elegant weddings, short if its more casual

I think the focus will be on you, but when it comes to the bridesmaids I’d go with what the weather permits.

I think it kind of depends on the type of wedding vision you have and the time of year. If it’s spring, you can get away with short or long. Summer should be shorter. Fall and winter longer. But that’s just MY opinion many women do it differently. My wedding was spring and we had long bridesmaids dresses but for my best friends wedding in 2 weeks she chose short.

Technically, the length of the dresses should be determined by time of day and formality of the event. I had a 6 p.m. wedding specifically because I wanted my bridesmaids and the mothers to be able to wear long dresses.
That said, the vast majority of weddings I have attended did not follow this rule.
If you’re having a 5 p.m. wedding, I would choose the long dresses that you really love.

the focus will be on you the bride, no matter what your bridesmaids wear. The long one is elegant and classic (there are heaps of short bridesmaid dresses around I feel) i dig it 😀

@peonyinparis: totally agree. I love long bm dresses unless it is a beach wedding or something casual.
