    Long dresses, I think they look better for different body types. Specifically when the bridesmaids vary greatly in height!

    I didn't order dresses--I gave them a color. I did say to make it around knee length or a little shorter. I don't want long dresses.

    I wanted long dresses, but now we decided not to have a official bridal party.

    Long. They can choose any style they want as long as it's the right color and it's long.

    Floor-length dresses Smiley smile my bridesmaids got to choose the exact dress through Azazie, they just needed to be long and burgundy.

    I wanted short at first but with it being an evening wedding I decided to go with long. I love them! Same color but all are wearing different styles!

    They will be wearing long burgundy chiffon dresses. I am letting them choose a style from 12 different ones I liked on Azazie so they are comfortable with what they are wearing
