Though, now that I think about it, it might be a little short. And in addition, bubble hems look slightly shorter than they usually are as well.

I love it, but I also think it would be a little short, at least for me anyways – do you think that your BM’s would be comfortable in it though?

It’s a very cute dress, but the style is kind of trendy right now (short with bubble hem), so unless your girls have alot of weddings or fancy cocktail parties to attend this summer (after your wedding of course) they may not get much use out of it again.  

By next season, the bubble hem trend may be long gone, and the dress may seem a bit dated. Then again, I don’t keep up with the fashion trends all that well, so perhaps it may stick around for another season?  I don’t know if you can count on that though.  

As an aside, I tried on a very similar dress at Le Chateau (obviously a knock off – heh) and the style made me look preggo, but I’m not petite by any means of the imagination, so it might work with your girls! 

Having said all that, it would go very nicely with your colours, and if looks good on your BM’s, and they seem hyped about it – I say why not!!

I love it ๐Ÿ˜€ it might not be so short on your BMs since the model is likely 5’9" and you say your BMs are petite.

I love that you have yellow and orange in your colors – my mom thought I was crazy and that no one would accept any of my dress choices ๐Ÿ˜€ I think that the dress is super-cute but also worry that the bubble hem might prevent future wearability as echo says (as well as the empire waist). I would ask the BM’s if they like it/would feel that it is flattering (generally you need to be kind of thin and on the taller side to look great and not just trendy in that style) and if they have enough occasions to wear it.

if your BMs are short, it might work! I think it’s pretty cute… but it’d definitely be one they’d have to try on first. ๐Ÿ™‚ nice find, though!

I love that dress!  Very cute and would work well if your bridesmaids are petite.  I really like your color choices too, it sounds like a beautiful sunset.

Oh and if you don’t choose it for your girls, I would buy it to wear to your rehearsal dinner!

It’s cute, but it is very trendy. In 5, 10, or 20 years, looking at your wedding pictures, will you still think it was a good choice?
