You CAN wear it again!

Admit it, either you have said it or you plan on saying it sometime in the near future. We brides seem to think that it is our matrimonial duty to find the perfect bridesmaid dress that is not only comfortable, attractive, and affordable, but that can also be worn again. Perhaps it puts our minds at ease to know that although we just asked our very best friends to fork over a small fortune for a dress, at the very least they will be delighted to know they can wear it again.
No doubt you searched and, if you are anything like me, ended up with something not likely to make an appearance ever again. It really is quite a difficult task and, quite frankly, sometimes you just want your bridal party to look, well, bridal. However, there are always those brides that are cause for envy. You know the ones - every aspect of the wedding is perfectly unique and their girls' attire is no exception. Enter Anthropologie (of course). They have so many fabulous dresses that work so well for a daytime or even a more casual evening wedding. Of course it ultimately depends on the style and the formality of the event, but I love the dresses below. Hey, if you are looking for a formal bridesmaid dress that they can also wear again, ask yourself this, when was the last time you donned a formal evening gown for a night on the town? Uh-huh, I thought so.

And for the coordintaor...(I could always use a new dress!)

That lat dress you posted (the black & green) is favorite of mine - a girl was wearing it at a summer wedding I was at and I swooned aorund her, I lvoed it and still have to have it. It also looked great because she had a great tan and filled it out just right...but whatever, it's great period.

These are too adorable for words and perfect for a summer wedding!! I am definitely putting these little cuties on my top 10 list of BM dresses for my clients!

my girls all wore anthropologie dresses! the best part was that they were only $128, even full price. it ended up being so much cheaper than regular dresses and they were so special.
