Bridesmaid dress SOS!!! Pressured into dress...

Having been a bridesmaid a few times before, I can say that when one of my friends was the bride, she didn't take the opinions of her 'maids into consideration, and I had to wear a tangerine nightmare of a dress that I not only didn't like, but was really quite embarrassed to wear in the bridal salon, more or less in front of over 100 people on her wedding day! I'm guessing you however are a kind bride, so if you like the dresses and they love them, I think you have found something everyone can be proud of!
And MarieSam is right -- if you're set on short dresses, maybe find out how much alterations to shorten them would be, and if you can afford it, maybe take care of the fee. Or, if you warm up to the idea of keeping them long, then you've already hit a homerun!
Good luck and I hope everything works out!

I can picture all 8 girls turned to the side holding their bouquets in the shoulderless arm gathered around you.
I think it's super cute & your BMs sound really happy with it. also with dresses what we end up buying is usually so different than what we pictured.

and there is a drape on the arm but everyone agreed that we would take that part off when it is altered. Once again thank you all so much I am feeling a lot better!

I think your BM dress is great and perfect for the beach. Now the hard part - stop looking at other dresses! Don't cheat on your BM dresses

But, I just got home from our August wedding and its warm! I brought lots of long dresses cause I love them and at home they flow and cool air comes up, but in Mexico I couldn't wear them it was too warm. I initially was going for longer dresses but was so glad we went w/ short. One of my girls sweat through her dress I couldn't imagine how warm it would have been in long dresses.
I like MarieSams idea of shortening them!
