Every bride always says it, and every bridesmaid always dreads it: “Really, girls, the best part about this dress is you could shorten it and wear it again!”
Um, no… no, you can’t. Nine times out of ten (at least!), a bridesmaid dress is a bridesmaid dress is a bridesmaids dress. I made no qualms to my ladies-in-waiting; while they were able to select the dress they liked best, it was still going to ‘maid-tastic :)
But alas, there is a solution! Bridesmaid beauts and please conscious brides, may you find solace in the exception that proves the rule. For the one in ten times dresses can be worn again… say it with me… PRINTS!
While prints or patterned dresses may come off seemingly less formal, really are a fantastic way to incorporate vintage glam and retro chic style into even the most mod of wedding settings. And because of their universal appeal, they can easily be re-worn for other weddings, formal gatherings or simply putting on your Sunday best!
