    I picked the third dress as I think it would be the most flattering on all your girls 🙂

    I think the length of the dresses is prett awkward. It wouldn’t be flattering on short girls. I’m 6’1″ and i’d think twice about it….and i’d have to shorten it to wear it again after the wedding. Maybe you could find something more wearable that requires less of an alteration reqirement? The dresses themselves are cute, it’s just a matter of changing up the length.

    Be careful with tops like the orange one. My Bridesmaid or Best Man tried one on (she’s a C), and she was practically falling out of it. If all your girls are small-chested, though, it’s lovely!

    I think the orange dress(in black) would be great for all your girls.

    Obviously they can hem it shorter if they want to, but it is a style that they could all wear again.

    Tea length is not flattering on everyone. Like the other person said the V neck may not be good on fuller chested girls and I think the strapless would be nice if it were shorter (to the knee) and were sweatheart neckline. Your best best is for them to try them on.

    If you want them to match (wear the same dress) I would go with the third one. It will be the most universally flattering.

    The second one has a gathered skirt, which tends to make most girls look even heavier/wider than they are (I speak form experience). 

    One thing you might consider is picking one designer that has a lot of dresses, and limit them to that designer and one type of fabric (and possibly dictate length), and then let the girls pick the style they want. It will coordinate b/c the fabric will be the same, but the style itself will be to their own taste. And you would obviously have veto power, as well, if they picked a dress you don’t like. 

    I’m doing this with my girls, and thus far it has gone really well!

    @keepsmiling19: Have your ladies actually tried on any tea-length dresses in person yet? I think they are always great in theory, and then you put them on and unless you’re really tall they usually don’t look as nice as you imagine. 

    Also, you should look into the B2 by Jasmine line. Most of their dresses come in long and knee length (25 inches is their standard for knee length) and many of them can be ordered as tea length as well.

    I voted for #1 but #3 was a clsoe second.  Have your girls tried on any of these dresses?  Have they tried on tea length dresses?  I know you said this is the most popular length… but they really do look awkward on a lot of people… if your girls haven’t tried them on, it might be worth it to be sure.

    @keepsmiling19: I was going to suggest Jasmine too, but you should also check out Alfred Angelo. We were looking for tea length, and AA had a ton of cute options.
