Ubercute for the Uber-Bridesmaid
I had a shopping outing this past weekend. Besides shuffling my two year old out from underneath the clothes, or prying my four year old down from the mannequin stands (“I’m working, Mommy” aka modeling), I had a good time. We journeyed over to Macy’s, and right there on the top level (at least in my mall), there were the MOST GORGEOUS special occasion dresses. Not like 1986 Prom dresses, I mean HOT. I thought “WOW, a bride and her BP could really go to town in here…dress, accessories, shoes and possibly even make up…all for under $200 or less”. I know we always talk about being a gracious bride and finding something that the party can wear again. When is the last time you saw someone out in a hot pink ruched fuchsia ball gown? Don’t worry. I’ll wait. But seriously, think about it. The more functional the gown is, the more likely it is to be worn again. This is also a great idea if your bridesmaids are strapped for cash.
Case(s) in point:
|Gorgeous, and on sale for $87 bucks
|A simpler design for only $58
|Going beachy or casual? $81 dollars
|Ruched and ruffled: $59 dollars.
|Goddess style dress: $81.
|Lacy and hot: $49.
Mind you, the dresses in the store were of a better variety in terms of cut, color and size selection etc. So, if your BP is on a budget, definitely look into this alternative. And remember, these dresses can always be dressed up with a little bling– It could be so much as a rhinestone brooch in the neckline or shoulder or the right accessories that could jazz it up for you!
