I’m the Maid/Matron of Honor at my Boyfriend or Best Friend wedding and found these cuties however, the other maids commented on them being to casual for a church wedding.What do you ladies and gents think?

If its a formal wedding, then yeah, I’d say its too casual. But if its a simple/casual/garden/ect wedding, then I think they’d look great!

It depends on what kind of church it is. Assuming it’s the average church, yes, I think those dresses are too casual.
They are beautiful, though.

To be honest, I do think they’re a little casual…but then again I don’t like short bridesmaids dresses.
Can they do the same styles but full-length?

Definitely casual, but it just depends on your type of event.

I think so if you’re having a formal, black tie or black tie optional wedding. I guess I just associate mismatched dresses with the whole rustic, barn theme which couldn’t be further from a black tie affair.

I think they are too casual for a formal wedding. if you really want mismatched formal Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, I would go for satin or another formal fabric.

I’m too distracted by the strange looks on the model’s face…anyway, I think it depends on the church.

I think they’re very pretty but I’m not sure if they’re too casual because I don’t know what your church looks like. When I think of this look I typically think of an outdoor casual wedding.

This dresses are so cute and fun, perfect for a garden, tented wedding…or barn reception…so if it’s a more formal church and wedding then they are too casual.

@Whimsygirl: I think it looks great but it does seem casual for a church. But churches really vary. Some are huge and elegant and others are really simple and bare bones.

Depends on the wedding. I think they’re perfect for a less formal wedding. Too casual if it’s a black tie affair.

I think mismatched vs. nont mismatched has nothing to do with formal vs. casual. The dresses you posted are too casual for a black tie event not because they’re mismatched, but because the fabric/prints/silhouettes, etc are casual. Mismatched dresses can work for a formal event too, they just have to be more formal dresses.
