You can always shorten it and wear it again!

Nothing epitomizes bridesmaids dresses more than the movie "27 Dresses". Jammed in a huge closet are some of the absolute worst bridesmaids dresses ever seen. Of course on the bride's wedding day she doesn't want anyone outshining her so why take a chance on your attendants looking better than you do?

Now occasionally you'll have a generous bride who is very secure and they'll take pity on their friends and actually pick something that looks fabulous on all her attendants. Most brides don't pick out their attendants by their shape and size so finding a dress that looks good on everyone can be a real chore.

Things have changed over the years and we now have bridesmaid dresses in every color imaginable. We have goth weddings, steampunk weddings and also the more traditional weddings. My oldest daughter, age 13, is what she terms Emo and has been online looking at wedding dresses in black. I must be more open than I was 20 years ago because there are some absolutely gorgeous dresses done in black or black and white, reds, etc.

We've selected several dresses we think would lend themselves to bridesmaids dresses. Rather than regimenting everyone into the same exact dress and color, why not pick your colors and use vintage gowns to make your dreams come true?
