    I think that it will look really nice.

    I don’t see a problem with you doing that. I am also doing the same thing.

    Absolutely!  I see it all the time and did it myself!  I had a long dress with beading, my BMs had red, strapless, tea-length dresses, we got married in an evening wedding in a very large, old, formal church and had our reception at a southern style mansion.

    Go with what you and your girls love!

    I voted yes, my bridesmaids are wearing tea-length dresses as well and my gown is also very formal. I think the dress that is your front runner is really pretty and can pass for formal- they don’t have to be long!

    I think it goes!  My Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses are knee length and I really like them with my dress.

    I am one of the votes that says “nope” sorry.  I really don’t think the two go well together.  When I look at the Bridesmaid or Best Man dress, I think cocktail hour, garden party, etc.  When I see your dress, I think fancy, elegant, formal, mansion style wedding.  I just don’t picture the two together very well. 

    I can’t see the picture of the dress too well, if you are set on doing short dresses, maybe make sure they are a nice satin material or something to dress them up some.

    I think that the tea-length is fine but the style of Bridesmaid or Best Man dress is too casual for your dress and venue. I would look for a Bridesmaid or Best Man that is more formal.

    I think you should try to find a dressier Bridesmaid or Best Man dress.  I think a formal gown and tea length are fine (that’s what I’m doing) as long as they’re the same level of formality.
