You’ve seen 27 Dresses, right? The movie where Katherine Heigl ends up with an entire closet dedicated to old bridesmaid dresses because she’s always the bridesmaid and never the bride? Well if you haven’t seen it, we won’t give away the ending. The point is that girl ended up with a lotttttt of hideous dresses. Rest assured, we are not suggesting you have a horrific fashion sense, but we are suggesting that it is easy to get caught up in the moment and end up picking dresses that beg one question- why? But hey, don’t worry your pretty little head about it, because we have an easy fix for all of those in fear of selecting bridesmaid dresses that are doomed for a dim closet.
When on the hunt for the perfect bridesmaids dress, think two things- classic and classy. Don’t pick a dress that is only perfect for one specific time, date, or year. Instead, pick a dress that’s bound to impress your wedding guests and double as a new, versatile dress for your best ladies. They’ve been sweet enough to support you through all your planning, so why not give them the gift of money well spent? Here are six stunning dresses your bridesmaids will actually want to wear after the big day has come and gone.
