Going short doesn't always have to feel informal. If you're a bridesmaid who loves shoes and accessories, a short bridesmaid dress may be the style for you! When deciding on your bridesmaids' dresses and whether they should be long or short, you will have to consider the type of wedding you are having (formal vs. informal), time of day and the time of year.
If the wedding will be more on the casual side, then check out knee-length, tea-length, or even mini dresses. With all that going, you want to make sure you choose bridesmaid dresses that the bride going to love. Not sure where to start? You've come to the right place. Formal (black-tie) weddings call for floor-length gowns, while an informal wedding (i.e. cocktail receptions, black-tie optional and/or daytime) is the perfect place for a cocktail-length dress, which is usually above, below or directly at the knee.
If the ceremony is taking place during the day, keep the bridesmaid dresses at cocktail length, as opposed to evening affairs where short, t-length (mid-calf) or floor length are a personal choice. Sundresses for a wedding on the beach are perfectly appropriate, while tea length dresses are a great option for an evening wedding at home.
