I also love the look of short dresses, but since I’m getting married in the rocky mountains in November long dresses make more sense. Just think how cold you would in wearing a short dress at that time of year.

Maybe they could find a shorter dress and pair it with some cute tights! I really like rocking tights and think that they are absolutly adorable when paired right! As long as they don’t get tights that are too casual then it should be ok.  Then you would have more casual dresses for the morning wedding, while they will have warm legs… Also, I dont find longer dresses any warmer than shorter dresses anyway.. they are all thin and open at the bottom…hints my tight love!

I think tights would be awesome teamed with short bridesmaids dresses for a morning wedding!

I was debating between short and long dresses for a while and ended up picking long dresses.  I’m having an evening wedding that is kind of formal and a couple of my bm’s are more comfortable wearing long dresses than short dresses so it just works out better that way.

I’ve always wanted to wear a long Bridesmaid or Best Man dress.  I think Chicago and January are good combination for long dresses.

I chose long (December morning wedding in the south). I originally wanted short but everyone commented on how cold they would be and I found the dresses (black sexy alfred angelo with a slight train) and I fell in love and luckily for me so did they 😀

I had originally wanted a short dress too!! But I was voted out by all the bridesmaids…they wanted long…and it’s for a beach wedding in March!! so don’t feel bad, at least Chicago will be cool.

Wow I completely understand. See I’m getting married in Arizona (in AUGUST!- hence my moniker) and I couldn’t POSSIBLY make my girls wear long dresses. I say go ahead and do the long dresses, just take some more time to make sure you get the perfect long dresses :o)

Originally I thought I wanted short dresses too, but once my bridesmaids made comments about the shoes – my MOH’s boyfriend of 10 years is only about an inch taller than her, so she hates wearing heels, but flats with a short dress doesn’t look that good, my other bridesmaids loved the longer dress length because they look so elegant.  At that, I was sold on long dresses!  They can wear whatever shoes they want since no one will see them and they all are happy with the dresses.

For a January wedding I think your BMs will appreciate you choosing a long dress!

Do you have any really short BMs? I’m 5′ and look ridiculous in long dresses! I was relived when Future Sister-In-Law had us wear tea length dresses for her wedding. 

Besides that, long might be better for January. Ugh, how I loathe Chicago in January! Nothing like waiting 20 minutes for the red line in -20 degree weather, right? Haha.

I will wed 7days before you and I can only tell you what I’m doing…. Long. I liked the short too (and have recently found one that I’m in love with thanks to a WB poster), but some how it doesn’t seem “right” to go with short to me. Of course that is my personal opinion. How about as sorta like a compromise a high-low hem. I love high low hems and I still haven’t crossed the possibilty off my list.
