In my day to day life, I spend a lot of time looking at bridesmaid dresses, some good, some bad and some just sinfully bad! But, when you start looking through the good dresses, you can actually find some hidden gems that would be perfect for that Saturday night out on the town! Now I know what you are thinking right now...there is no such thing as a "good" bridesmaid dress let alone one that I would wear again!! I know, I know, that concept was the underlying foundation of 27 Dresses and any other movie about weddings - "it's so cute you can shorten it and wear it again"! No one believes that idea - I have even been guilty of leaving a dress or two at the hotel after the wedding because I didn't need to ever see it again! But let me tell you, there are some darling bridesmaid dresses out there that even the most skeptical 'maid would fall in love with!
Here are a few of my favorites...
|This dress is universally flattering - and the sash adds a bit of whimsey|
|This one shoulder dress is absolutely darling - I adore the bow on the shoulder|
|I love this simple cocktail dress from Priscilla of Boston - and how much do you love it in yellow?!|
|This is a great long dress option, it will work on all body types as well as for a pregnant 'maid|

|I love the use of cole in this dress, and the straps are ideal for girls with...girls!|
|This is another great long dress option from Priscilla of Boston - I see it at an 8:00 black tie ceremony|
|How cute is this little number! Perfect for a summer affair|

As for the long dress, they are definitely more appropriate at some types of weddings. I would recommend wearing a long dress for a black tie wedding, it just looks a bit more formal. And with a long dress, there is a bit more room for camouflage if you have a girl that is self-conscious about her size or is pregnant!
As you can see, there are some great options for bridesmaid dresses that won't cause your friends to think back thoughts about you on your wedding day! And let's be honest, as the bride, you should really want the dresses you pick to be cute and pretty and fit well - you are the one that has to look at those pictures for the rest of your life!
Have a fabulous day and dream about your weekend...
