    My girl's wanted to wear long dresses in March as it will have more of a winter feel Smiley smile

    We haven't gone shopping yet, but I am going to make this a joint decision with my bride tribe. I have a dress that is long and short at the same time (hard to explain), so either won't look out of place. I think people will lean towards short because it'll be summer.

    I bought all my bridesmaids long dresses! They were going to choose their own shoes so I wanted everyone to look elegant and the floor length dresses covered their shoes so it won't look different if someone chooses a nude shoe or a grey shoe.

    If I’d had bridesmaids their dresses would have been long.

    Short - midi length actually. Long felt too formal for our occasion.

    Long, I debated this for a long time but I like the look of long dresses more than short ones for the bridal party.

    Short! Everyone is getting a knee (or there abouts) length dress .... including me! Already did the big gown ... so now I'm gonna be in something completely custom and just above the knee. Can't wait!

    Long. Originally we were going with short but they had to try on long dresses and get them shortened but we all loved the long so decided on that instead.

    My maid of honour picked a long dress with a mermaid style skirt. It's definitely a statement.

    Choices based on the season/theme can vary on how the length can be chosen to go about. Also based on the cultural differences too. It all depends which way opinion of the bridesmaid make if they are part of the decision.
