    I'm going for short because I'm getting married in the summer in VA and it can get pretty warm plus we are having a beach wedding so short it is

    I chose black chiffon floor length dresses because we're having a black-tie wedding.  I had the BMs pick their favorite dresses from Barijay so they're all going to have different dresses.

    I haven't officially picked them but I am definitely going to do long. Personally, I think that a long dress is classy and brings a sense of sophistication to the affair even for less formal weddings. That being said I have seen quite a few fun short dresses that look great and give a wedding a fun, let's party kind of vibe. I think it depends on the feel you are for.

    I

     am having both for my wedding. I love short but wanted a distinction between the MOH and BM.  The flower detail on the BM matches my dress and so does the MOH's.  Both dresses are Bari Jay.  I chose the color Sage.
       


    My Dress. The left shoulder has flower detail.
