Everyone complains about bridesmaid’s dresses. I’ve bought some pastel tiered wedding-cake-esque “wonders” that immediately went into the “for Kiwanis” pile after the event. But I did get one dress, for my sister’s wedding, that has become my go-to dress for formal events and weddings since.
My sister is a pragmatic woman. When she got married, 11 years ago in May, she asked her bridesmaids to wear an off-the-rack dress. The Talbot’s dress she chose was a formal black dress, with a keyhole back and two discreet bows one on each side of the keyhole. The dress fit all the bridesmaids well, which was amazing considering that we ranged in size from 5’0″ to 6’2″ and in figure from hourglass to rangy. I think my mom did a bit of alteration to make the dress fall nicely on me, but overall it was a great deal.
Well, my friend Vici got married last week, and, over a decade later, I was able to pull out that dress for another wedding. Thanks Chris!
