Bridesmaids Dresses That Don't Suck

We don't believe in the concept of wear-once-and-only-once dresses—especially when it comes to wedding attire (even if you're the bride). The hideosity of bridesmaids dresses is well-documented, but it's never made much sense to us. Why subject your best gal friends to such sartorial—and fiscal—horror, when you know you'll receive the same treatment come their Big Day. Let's break the cycle now, ladies: Behold, bridesmaids dresses your friends will thank you for (but won't steal the limelight!).
