·10 min read
There comes a time in every woman’s life when she has to plunk down some hard-earned cash on a dress that she just isn't that crazy about. We’ve all been there: your best friend, sister, cousin, or college roommate who you’re no longer super-close with is getting married and you’ve been enlisted in the bridal party — of a wedding that's been rescheduled three times over the past year (for obvious reasons). With a traditional wedding, there's a good chance that the bridesmaids will be asked to match perfectly or, at least, to color coordinate their ceremonial frocks. If the directives from your soon-to-be-wed friend dictate everything from color, silhouette, sleeve length, and hem, then it's time to team up with the other lucky maids for a purchase plan.
We’re here to reassure you that there are, indeed, plenty of reasonable retailers out there specializing in crowd-pleasing frocks — specifically ones that will easily satisfy your very specific dress code while still allowing you some leftover cash for that wedding gift. (Seriously?) Click on through and get ready to forward this on to your bridal party — one of you has to take the lead, so it may as well be the one watching her wallet.
