Some of us have been lucky, others not so much...

 but yes, the beautiful bride always tells you, "you can so wear that again!"

 Same thing my mom told me when I was a bridesmaid at her wedding, but lordy... I'm never wearing that thing again!

What could we do with our old bridesmaid dresses(hopefuly none of us having 27 stuffed into a closet!)?

Change them into beautiful new outfits? purses? home decor? a revenge gift disguised as an anniversary gift for the bride? Some of us could probably dress a troop of girlscouts in one of our old dresses!

Awww,... I just sold my one and only bridesmaid's dress at a garage sale!! If I'd only thought to maybe change it somehow... drat it. I need to be a bit more open minded as far as reconning clothes. >.<

I have one from 2007.  Gorgeous burgundy color and looked great on me but wtf am I going to do with it?  This is the perfect opportunity to try to come up with something.  And not only do I have a dress, I have a bolero and a scarf thing.  To top that off, the bride just had her first daughter.  Wink

I have at least 3 bridesmaid dresses.  One I really like, and really don't want to cut into, but let's face, when will I ever wear it again, really?  This would be fun to do, but what to do with them?  One is a dark purple with a yellow scarf, one is a very nice lilac color with embroidered flowers on the bodice, and the other one is a sage/lt green color.
