It's a ways out, but I'm starting to think about what kind of dresses I would like my BMs to wear for an October wedding. In Chicago, the weather is pretty unpredictable. We aren't kidding when we say we can get all four seasons in one day- it has snowed before 8am, shot up to 75, then went back down to 50's for the evening. Anyway, mid-October in Chicago has also been known to get pretty hot on occasion. Since I can't rely on that, do I go with a long dress for them or the short dress I'm leaning towards? I realize they will also have a say in this, but I don't want varying dress lengths. What are you other October brides doing?
