If you are a guy, you can probably tune out for this post, but since I know that I have at least four female readers, I thought I would pass this along.
It seems to me that having to buy a bridesmaid's dress because someone asked you to be in their wedding would be pretty annoying. "Hey, you're one of my favorites, I really want you to be in my wedding. Oh, and do you have about $500 to spare that you can use to buy me presents for my multiple showers and to shell out on a dress that you'll only wear once all while you secretly resent me for getting married before you? OK, awesome." Thank goodness I will never have to experience this.
Well, clearly the ladies over at MyScoop feel you pain. Ashlyn Stallings, whose blog Miss Magnolia is on my blog list to the right, wrote an article for MyScoop with ideas for actually reusing some of those bridesmaid dresses. Some of the ideas that they've come up with sound pretty good and pretty doable. Be sure to check out both her blog post and her article, "From Bridesmaid to Everyday Outfit," on MyScoop.
