Bridesmaid dresses are done!

Siri called me last week and told me that our bridesmaid dresses were done! I was super excited! Now, I'm in So Cal, and the dresses are in Nor Cal. Luckily, one of my BMs lives in SF, so she volunteered to pick them up. But alas, she was in NY for her super wonderful boyfriend picked them up for us! Well I asked him to take pictures for me...his blackberry doesn't take really good I had to wait a week until BM came home so that she could take pix for me.

And here is one of my bridesmaids modeling the dress.

I love the pleated top. I thought it would totally compliment my wedding gown as my tiered skirt is pleated.

You can see it's a bit (really) long. So now we're trying to decide how short to hem these babies. I'm a teeny tiny bit annoyed that the hemming could not be done while the dress was being made...or that it could be...for an extra fee. Ugh.

So what I'm thinking is the girls get the dresses hemmed to just above their knees. Our wedding is late spring/early summer-ish, so I think it would be appropriate. And since my girls range from 4'11" to 5'3", this short length will elongate their legs and make them look taller. Example:

Again, here's one of my bridesmaids modeling the different length options:

tea length, i.e. just below the knee

mid-knee length

above the knee

I'm totally diggin' above the knee. Your thoughts please?

I vote for mid-knee. Tea length make most shorties (like me) seem shorter. Above the knee makes the dress look less formal.

I can't wait to see what you decide.
