Serving in a bridal party is an honor. But, one aspect of this special role runs the risk of turning your bridesmaids' happiness into sheer dread on your special day: the dress. And, rightfully so. Any woman who’s ever walked down the aisle in an ill-fitting, heinously colored, poorly designed mess (and an expensive one at that!) knows all too well that the bridesmaid dress can be the cause of serious humiliation. And, the embarrassment and eye-sore factor can multiply when the unfortunate frocks are all lined up in a row at the altar.
So, to nix the potential headache of finding the perfect choice to appease you and your girls, we compiled this guide just for you. And, we even went one step further and served up four styles for five different types of weddings that seamlessly work together without being matchy-matchy. Although some of the looks ahead are pricier than others, think about what a gift it is to offer your right-hand ladies dresses they'll actually be able — and want — to wear again. Now that's something to toast to.
