Go on. Tell me it's a terrible idea and that I can't do it... grin

I say do it.

But only because my dress is tea length too and I like that idea grin

You can have whatever you like, style wise, on your wedding day.

Oh no you've talked me into it grin

I've actually already bought a dress - but I don't feel too bad for changing it as it was in the Monsoon sale, so not like it was £hundreds. Looking at the beautiful dresses on Dragonfly and have an appointment next week... I've already bought the bridesmaid dresses and I love them. Think I could maybe get a sash in the same colour to tie in... Exciting!

Your wedding dress would have to look very wedding-y to hold it's own against a group of full length dresses, IMHO

Could the bridesmaid dresses be a shorter length too?

Families I've already bought BM dresses

This is the sort of thing I'm looking at

TBH it probably won't happen as I'm 5'1 1/2 (the 1/2 inch is important!) so will in all probability look ridiculous grin

No, the wedding police will come and take you away.

Well, I am! Wanna share a ride to the wedding Jail grin ?

I am wearing a tea length but can't find a halfway decent bridesmaid dress I like to 'go with' it, so I am just getting dresses I like that suit my bridesmaids for them, and a dress I like that suits me for me! They are COMPLETELY different, and I could not care less!

You could have the bm dresses shortened by a dressmaker.
