@mari892: What sort of temperature would it be in Dec? If it’s not too cold then would it be possible to get away with getting them a wrap? As you don’t want to have to get them all new dresses obviously. Or unless you push it back to early 2012?

@mari892:

Tights could work if your having  a quirky or casual wedding.  Probably not if it’ s very formal.

Just an idea 🙂

Florida isnt that cold even in the winter, I wear knee length dresses and skirts in the winter with tights all the time.

60 degrees is warm enough that bare legs will be fine. I’d just get them warm pashminas. They can always wear nude pantyhose to at least give them an extra layer, although I’d probably prefer bare legs. And since it’s Florida short dresses won’t look weird.

I live in Ontario Canada and we get snow. I was in a December wedding last year and we had cocktail lenght strapless dresses. We had wraps to cover us up and I wore nude hose (I dont know if they provide warmth). I wouldn’t worry about the lenght, just make sure they have something to cover up top.

I think 60 degrees would be fine for bare legs, especially since the wedding and reception are both indoors.  The girls should be fine going outside for photos.

As long as you don’t make them take too many pictures outside, I think the the short dresses will be fine.  I wear dresses in the winter and never wear hose or tights and I haven’t frozen my legs off yet.  The wraps are a great idea!

Think of all the women in Florida in December. They are NOT all wearing long dresses. The short dresses will be fine.

when the weather channel tells me it’s 60 degrees here, that’s when I break out the shorts =P I think you will be totally fine with the short bridesmaid dresses!
