If you've ever been a bridesmaid, you're probably already familiar with the famous speech. It's the one in which the soon-to-be Mrs. tells you that your color-coordinated ceremony frock will not only look gorg in her wedding album, but will actually be totally easy to wear again, after her big day. "Of course; so cute!" you'll say, trying very hard not to roll your eyes.While we can't convince your bestie to choose bridesmaid dresses that aren't, say, a silk-taffeta, mint-green ball gown with a matching parasol, we can help out with the "wear it again" part. Parasols asides, we've styled three super-pretty bridesmaid dresses that will not only please the bride-to-be, but also fully transform once the cake's been cut and the guests go home. Proving, once again, that accessories make all the difference, we've re-envisioned three looks that can be appropriate for the wedding day and statement-making for the other 364.
