9 Unconventional, Totally Re-Wearable Bridesmaids Dresses (I Swear)

As I mentioned before, I've been in a lot of weddings. Don't get me wrong--I'm honored and flattered and it means so much to me to be involved on the big day. That said, I've also spent a lot of money on dresses that hang lifeless in the closet at my mom's house.

While I only had two bridesmaids in my own wedding (a Maid and Matron of Honor), I want them to have a fighting chance at wearing their dresses again. Enter Reformation. I selected a handful of styles and prints that I liked and then gave my gals the option to choose. It was important to me that they felt comfortable and gorgeous, and most of all, like they weren't wasting a lot of money on a dress they'd never wear again. I can't speak to whether they were comfortable or not, but they sure as hell looked gorgeous.

Not to knock a traditional bridesmaids gown, because I've seen some really gorgeous ones--just saying it doesn't have to be that way if you don't want it to be. Behold some frocks that will do the job just fine (and then some).
