I think that if you want shorter dresses you should go for it, it is a really great look, and because they are shorter I think they would be more likely to be re-worn.

I agree… it doesn’t matter anymore. I was just in a wedding (jan. 30th) and we wore tea-length dresses. It was fine… we just didn’t do many outdoor photos. Whatever you and your ‘maids like is all that matters. 🙂

My girls are wearing short strapless red dresses for my December 18th wedding, and it’s COLD here!  But it’s not their style to wear long dresses, so they like them better.  They’ll probably all have shawls to wear with it however.

I don’t think that it matters. I went to a wedding in October and the BM’s had short dresses for an outdoor wedding and it was really cute. My wedding dress is tea length so my girls dresses are going to be tea length or a little shorter.

Go for it! I’m 10-30 and we’re doing tea-length dresses for my girls.

I think it depends more on the venue and overall formality and feel of the wedding, so if it works, I wouldn’t worry about the season 🙂 its your wedding, you make the rules!

My wedding was in the mountains in September 2009. We went with knee length dresses because it went with the setting much better. Don’t worry as much about time of year but think about the style that you are creating…
