Long Vs. Short Bridesmaid Dresses

Hi ladies! I'm looking for opinions on bridesmaid dresses.  Last week I purchased my MOH's dress which ended up being a long dress (I originally wanted to put all of my bridal party in short dresses) because she looked stunning in it.  Here it is:Hi ladies I m photo 1089887-1


Now, I don't know if I should put my bridal party in long or short dresses! Here are my options:


#1Hi ladies I m photo 1089887-2


#2Hi ladies I m photo 1089887-3 (in navy)


Has anyone seen a bridal party where the MOH's dress was long and the rest of the party was short? I'm sure other brides have done it, but what do you think?

Hmmm...I can't recall seeing one, but I personally love seeing variety in bridesmaid's dresses so I don't see a problem with it...

I think you can do both, long and short. Just go with what looks best on the girl that should wear it.

Update!! We just got back from dress shopping and we ended up going with dress #1 for all
the girls. It really suited any body type and let's everyone eat without feeling that the dress is too tight! We tried a bunch of short ones and stood the girls next to my MOH and it just flowed better with all the same length. I'm so relieved this is done!!
