Being able to wear your bridesmaid dress after the wedding is something bridesmaids are told over and over again, and while some do actually wear their dresses to other formal events, most end up leaving it hanging in the back of a closet for eternity.
But why not give the bridesmaid dress another whirl at the not so formal events in your life?
Here are some ideas that will gives any bridesmaid a chance to wear the bridesmaid dress again:
On a first or second date: Is he taking you to a nice restaurant and you have nothing in your closet to wear? Why not wear your bridesmaid dress? Obviously this depends on the style of the dress, because some bridesmaid dresses are too formal for a date. But a nice cocktail style bridesmaid dress would be perfect! One great example would be the Alfred Sung Style D681 bridesmaid dress and you can complete the look with a pretty clutch.
