- Wedding: July 2014
Okay, so my original plan was to go long dresses for all of my BMs. And then I realized just how stinking expensive they can be. That combined with my summer wedding, I decided to go short. My dress is more simple anyway and I like the look of the shorter dresses with my gown.
Now–my Maid/Matron of Honor is shaped differently than the rest of my bridal party. She has some serious, sexy booty, and is just all around a bigger person than some of my teeny tiny bridesmaids. I know from previous shopping trips and discussions that she generally hates herself in short dresses. Above all things bridesmaid dress related, I want her to feel beautiful and comfortable, so I told her that the other girls will all be wearing short and as the Maid/Matron of Honor, it’s ok if her dress is different, so it’s up to her whether she would like a long or short dress.
Now I’m second-guessing myself a bit and wondering how weird this will actually look. She tried on a short dress the other day that she really did like and she seems torn between the short dress and the long dress (they are the same exact style, length is the only difference). Since she seems to like them both, I don’t think it would be terrible if I wound up telling her I’d like them to be all the same length afterall.
But before I do that, I’d love to see if any bees out there have pictures of bridal parties with mixed length dresses, or of your Maid/Matron of Honor in a different dress. I would SUPER appreciate any visuals you guys can give me!!!
