I think it could work for some weddings, but since you’re going to wear a gorgeous and fancy ballgown, I think your Fiance might be right.  What is it about that dress that you like?  Maybe we could find something similar but a bit fancier for you.

Add some flowers and jewelry and it will work just fine!

I like them…  they can easily be dressed up with some snazzy shoes and jewelry…  they might be a little short for church wedding,It depends on the church though….

Is it a little short?

I can’t ever tell because most of the time the models are like 5’9 and they make dresses look short.

Other than that I think it’s cute! Maybe a more formal hairstyle will make it look more formal.

I think it will be fine. Dresses are almost always short on models because they have legs that go all the way to their armpits.

I agree that the dress would be fine. You can easily dress them up with shoes, jewelry, and hairstyle.  I think your bridesmaids will be thankful as well.  1) they are extremely affordable, 2) You can easily wear this again and again.

what kind of material is it? (and how “formal” is your wedding?)

I agree with your Mom and Fiance that the dress you posted is a little casual.

I’m hunting for some options for you.  🙂

I found this dress that seems to be the color you are going for.  It isn’t the style of the other two you posted (I’m looking for one like those too!), but i thought I would throw it out there.

Nordstrom – Originally $178, On sale for $98
