They’re both very pretty! I tend to prefer short dresses (they’re more versatile, comfortable, and usually less expensive), but this one may be a tad short for my taste. I’d run it by your girls and see how they feel about these options! Love the mixed fabrics!

They look very nice!  But depending on the budget of your BMs, it may be a little much to buy two dresses.

@Almost Mrs.P:  I was just going to write this.  I like the long one the best!

Both of those are so pretty!  I slightly prefer the long one only because the short one looks fairly short and I tend to feel uncomfortable in dresses that are super short.

@Almost Mrs.P:  I was going to say the same thing!

Both dresses are very pretty, I prefer the longer one b/c the shorter one is just a little too short for my taste, but the cost of 2 dresses, plus hair and makeup, accessories, and shoes. Not to mention the costs that are involved in bridal showers and bachelorette parties…I would probably have a talk with my BM’s before asking them to buy 2 dresses.

ETA: I didn’t see your above statement that you were very generously paying for your Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses! Since that’s the case, I like the second short dress that you posted better 🙂

@KelsieLea7:  I wasn’t trying to be rude with my above statement and edited it afterwards once I read all of the comments. With that being said, if you do choose to go with 2 seperate dresses, I did like the second short one better. I personally think it may be a little over the top with 2 Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses, but I’m also the type of bride that wants to wear my wedding dress the entire night to get as much use out of it as possible lol If having 2 seperate dresses for your BM’s is something that you want to do and is in the budget for you, then go for it.

The long one is beautiful but I also think short dresses are more versatile. Could you have your Maid/Matron of Honor in the long one and the BM’s in the short one, maybe in the same or a similar colour?
