Short BM Dresses at the End of March?

I really like the look of short bm dresses.  I think they are more stylish and less matronally than long dresses.  That being said, my wedding is March 23rd and I don't want my girls to freeze to death.  Do you think it is asking a lot for them to wear short dresses? I'm going to get them wraps as part of their gift.  I saw this pic below showing bm's with different nylons which I think is really cute.  I'm picking a dark grey color and would let them choose whichever dress in the same color and fabric from Bill Levkoff was most flattering for them.  Thoughts? Thanks.

    I went to a wedding in January that had short dresses, so I don't think you're asking alot (and for my wedding in May, I had long dresses- haha).

    The end of March is always up in the air as far as weather anyways. It could be 40 degrees or 75 degrees. I think as long as they have a wrap and you don't keep them outside for hours if it is freezing then short dresses are fine.

  • I'm November and the girls will be in short dresses.

    I say go for it!
  • I think you're fine.  I'm getting married in January and really wanted short dresses despite the weather.  I mean, if you go out to a normal place in the winter (nice dinner or something) wouldn't you wear a short dress?...that said, all my girls liked long dresses better, so that's what we went with!  But, I do prefer short, I think they're cuter.  Unless your wedding is very formal, I think short is totally fine. 
  • Thanks gals.  All of the bms (with the exception of my sister) like short.  She is the MOH so if she really wants, she can wear a long one.  Glad to know that I'm not asking too much.

  • I wore a short BM dress for my friends November Wedding.  The outside pics were not that fun, but once your inside and dancing around you still get hot lol  I so definitely go with the short dress' if that is what you prefer
