I’ve been in my fair share of weddings in my day and I think a brides favorite phrase is “Isn’t this dress great, you can totally wear it again!” Most times you totally can’t. Which is unfortunate because bridesmaids aren’t the kind of invest you mind hiding in the closet until an acceptable length of time has passed where it can be donated.
Wouldn’t it be great if you could get a bridesmaids dress that actually could be worn again at a steal? We found these 10 bridesmaid dresses from one of my favorite shopping sites, ModCloth! Best of all, not a single one was found in a “bridesmaid” category.
Before you decide, make sure to consider these three tips.
- Consider the season and time of day. Is it spring, summer, fall or winter? Is it a tropical wedding? Black dresses may be gorgeous for a late party-vibe ceremony and reception but may be a stretch for a early, summer day.
- Keep your bridesmaids in mind. Most of your girls would prefer to have some input and not everyone has the same body type. Perhaps you can pick the colors or fabrics and they can choose the cut. Or you can choose the cut and they can choose the colors. etc
- But at the end of the day, it is YOUR day. So while you should consider everyone they are there to support you and your choice.
10 Unique and Affordable Bridesmaid Dresses Under $100
A Few Bonus Splurge Styles
The 10 dresses above are fabulous but I found these two I couldn’t help but pass up. If you’re willing to spend just a bit more these bridesmaid dress alternatives are beautiful. Note: I use the term splurge loosely since both of these dresses are under $200!
