With a phenomenal selection to flatter every body type, we know your best ladies will feel confident and simply gorgeous as they celebrate your wedding day alongside of you. Have you decided on long or short dresses yet? Here are some considerations to discuss with your bridesmaids below:

Your preferred fabric. It’s time to face the facts. Some fabrics just look better in certain lengths. For instance, stiff, structured fabrics such as satin and taffeta look far better in short styles versus a full-length gown. Same goes for lace. Not only do these fabrics look better in the shorter styles, but just think how uncomfortable you would be spending a whole day covered from neck-to-toe in such a heavy fabric?

Chiffon on the other hand looks gorgeous in both lengths, however brides tend to lean toward the full-length designs for a more romantic, whimsical look.

To get the best of both worlds, check out our collection of lace-top and satin-top dresses that both have chic, chiffon skirts. The styles are fun, unique, and ones that your ‘maids will actually love wearing!

The season and climate. This is definitely a critical piece to consider when choosing your bridesmaid dresses. There’s nothing worse than being freezing cold while taking outdoor pictures or sweating bullets in a thick, heavy dress. Be aware of the possible temperatures and weather conditions during the month you’re planning to tie the knot. If you do decide to go against the norm, make sure you provide your bridesmaids with the necessary means to be completely comfortable. If that means handheld electric fans or hand warmers and cardigans, do it.  Read more bridesmaid discussion tips from Kennedy Blue

Long vs. Short Bridesmaid Dresses: NYB&Co. Syracuse Has All Your Favourite Styles

There are more brides ditching tradition to follow their wedding dreams. Once upon a time, long dresses were the only acceptable option and shorter gowns were reserved for more casual affairs. These days however, both options are abundant, as comfort has shown it is as vital as aesthetics. Discover more length considerations below:

Long Bridesmaid Dresses:

– Often seen as the more elegant option, floor-length gowns tend to be a better fit for formal weddings.
– With covered-up legs, self-conscious bridesmaids won’t have to worry about pale or scarred legs.
– Long chiffon dresses are popular choices that look lovely in any setting.
– Since their shoes won’t show, bridesmaids can wear what they feel comfortable in.
– If you know one of your girls will be in her second or third trimester, she will probably feel more comfortable in a longer dress.

Short Bridesmaid Dresses: 

– Shorter styles are usually more versatile and easier to wear again.
– If you’re having a summer wedding outdoors, your bridesmaids will appreciate a nice breeze on their bare legs.
– A wider variety of fabrics typically work better with shorter dresses, so different styles and options can be selected for greater personalization.
– Shoe lovers can make footwear a bigger part of their outfit since they’ll be seen. Country-chic weddings often choose to highlight cowboy boots in this way.
– If there’s a large disparity in the height of your ‘maids, short dresses may be more flattering. Petite women may feel they drown in a long gown, while statuesque bridesmaids may not be able to order extra length in every style.

If you don’t have a strong vision, be sure to ask your bridesmaids’ their opinions. After all, they are the ones who will be wearing the dresses, but ultimately, the decision is up to you! Discover more from Inside Weddings
