personally, i think mixing long dresses with short dresses looks a little funny, but i love the different shades of the same color idea!

I also think that mixing long and short dresses looks a little odd. They feel like a different fomality, especially with the two different types of fabric, sorry : I do really like the idea of a deeper and lighter shade of the same color! That sounds really beautiful!

The last wedding I was a bridesmaid in, all bridesmaids had different style dresses in the same length, color, and fabric. We all chose our dresses based on what looked the best on us.

Just by chance, the maid of honor picked the one dress with a mesh overlay over the fabric. It actually looked really nice for the Maid/Matron of Honor to have a dress that was slightly different from the others.

I think a slightly different dress in a darker color (i.e. same length and fabric) or a different dress in the same color would work well.

I’m not 100% sure how one long Maid/Matron of Honor dress with short Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses would look though.

Also, from a personal standpoint, I’d hope you aren’t telling her that her size is the reason  you are considering her wearing a different dress. I know if any of my friends thought that of me I’d be very hurt.

@ThePinkTyrant: Didn’t think so, just had to check. I think a different dress is fine, I’m just not sure about the long dress vs. short.

I don’t necessarily think the dress needs to be long and flowy, but I do see where they are coming from with the other dress you have chosen. I think any flowy dress would look great! You could hem the long dress to be the same length and she would still be comfortable, or find any other flowy short dress. I think that short and long work together, but not when its just one long one. Like all different pinks and have two girls in short dresses and two in long ones, it evens it out a bit.

I think whatever makes the girls comfortable, ya know?  The last wedding I was in, the bride had us all pick dresses that we liked, the stipulation being navy and knee length.

I think the draping on the front of the dress will cover up a belly on any woman.  It will look really nice. Also I like the idea of it being a darker shade because more saturated colors are slimming.  I am having my bridesmaid wear fushcia instead of a lighter pink (my wedding color) bc I think a saturated pink will look better on their varying skin colors and will also be slimming and sexy.
