The Long and Short of Bridesmaid Dresses |Length of the Dress

on July 15, 2019 / by

One of the most special things about a wedding is asking a close friend or a relative to play an important part in the wedding. I’ve been a bridesmaid for 3 weddings and trust me it is one of the best feelings helping the bride-to-be to plan one of the most important days of her life. However, when it came to my wedding it took me a while to figure out what exactly to do and to entrust my besties with tiny details. And it also took me a while to actually figure out shopping for my bridesmaid dresses, with a huge debate on whether to get short bridesmaid dresses or long ones.

In all the three weddings I was a bridesmaid, we did go back and forth about the length of the dress and the final decision rested depended on the season, location and theme of the wedding. So after a lot of discussions with my family and friends, I picked short bridesmaid dresses for my wedding from BMbridal, however, you can make some informed decisions with the pros and cons of each type I scribbled below:

Long Bridesmaid Dresses
~ A more elegant option, especially for formal weddings and black-tie affairs.
~ A popular choice for all body types, except very short girls.
~ A style that covers the feet hence can save on the footwear expenses.

Short Bridesmaid Dresses:
~ A more fun option, especially for informal and intimate gatherings. 
~ A popular choice for all body types, fun and sweet.
~ A style that allows flaunting beautifully coordinated footwear.

And if you are still undecided, let your bridesmaid pick for themselves as mismatched bridesmaid dresses are also gaining a lot of popularity these days. However with mismatched bridesmaid dresses, ensure that you already have two or three hues you know you’ll be using in the wedding, and work from there.
