I’ve been planning my wedding for a while and chose these short dresses a while ago and all my bridesmaids have already bought them. I’m starting to regret them because I feel like they’re informal the more I’ve looked at them. (however the wedding is in May in AZ so it will be hot!) what does everyone think? Too informal? What should I do?Short bridesmaids dress? 1

    It really depends in how formal your wedding is.

    I agree it depends what the attire/mood is you’re going for. Very cute for a boho vibe and great for the heat

    I think it depends on the formality of your wedding. I will say I don't think they look at all like something a bridesmaid would normally wear.

    It looks to me like this dress is versatile and could be dressed up with fancy shoes, a jeweled belt/sash and formal jewelry - I would be thrilled with this dress, as a bridesmaid! I'm in Florida so I get the heat part lol

    I think it's really pretty, and comfortable!

    Personally I don't like short dresses for the bridal party, but if your wedding isn't too formal, then they will work just fine! Since everyone has already bought it, I would stick with it and just find shoes and accessories to dress it up!

    Are they returnable or are you willing to pay for the new ones? I would be upset if I already purchased a dress and had to purchase a new one because the bride changed their mind. I do agree with the others that it does depend on the vibe you are going for and you can dress the dresses up!

    It's a nice dress. Make sure it's consistent with the dress code of the overall wedding

    I would think those sleeves actually make it warmer... and show sweat more easily. I’d prefer to wear something without sleeves in the heat, even if it’s long.

    The dress itself is beautiful and can be dressed up. Personally, I don't think short dresses belong in bridal parties because it can be to similar to guest attire. If you are requiring them to change dresses though, unless there is a return policy, you should be prepared to pay for their dresses.

    So how about a Hi-Lo chiffon dress for a wedding on a hot day? You can look at them:

    I'm not big on short dresses for wedding party but I think this dress is really cute and can definitely be dressed up! Once everyone is done up and assesorized i think they will look great!! In a hot environment it seems like a great dress. It really comes down to how formal u want it to look and the comfort of the bridesmaids.
