Different Girls, Different Dresses
Bridesmaids dresses are most womens' worst nightmare. The combination of being forced to buy a dress that you don't particularly care for that is on the higher price side knowing that it will end up in the closet for years to come because it screams "Bridesmaid Dress" and because 5 of your girlfriends have the same one is a little disheartening. As a woman who has 3 bridesmaid dresses hanging in my closet, I am in love with all of these brides who are mismatching their bridal parties. But I especially love it when they take it one step further and shop for the dresses in the places that the bridesmaids would normally shop.
I'm featuring four dresses from Banana Republic. I love the different colors that are all in the same family but not the same color. The four different styles give bridesmaids options for their different body types and preferences.
If you're going to make your friends spend $100 on a dress, at least let it be one that she likes that she will want to wear again. I can assure you that most bridesmaids rarely wear those dresses bought from bridal boutiques ever again, so don't you dare utter, "You can shorten it and wear it again."
