"You'll Wear it Again"

One of my best friends and I were talking about how we have these pink bridesmaid dresses from weddings we have been in hanging in our closets, but we never have an occasion to wear them.

So we decided to make an occasion... Sunday Champagne Brunch on the Queen Mary!



Yay for bottomless mimosas!


And yay for actually wearing our bridesmaid dresses again!


Have you ever worn a bridesmaid dress again?

I've never re-worn a bridesmaid dress, but my sister wore her dress from my wedding to prom! Isn't that a great re-use?!

What a great idea and you all look fabulous!
I wore one once. It was a short navy cocktail dress by Nanette Lepore but that's the only one.
I wore it for Member-Guest at my BIL and SIL Country Club.
Most of the other bridesmaid dresses I've been told to wear have been long.

I am proud to say that ALL of my bridesmaids have re-worn their dresses! I had black J Crew strapless dresses so they lucked out from me!

And believe it or not - I have NEVER been a bridesmaid! So I don't have that problem but I LOVE your idea!

How fun! Your dresses were super cute too...not the kids of dresses that are hard to re-wear. I have only re-worn one of my bridesmaids dresses. It was for a casual beach wedding so I packed it for a tropical vacation I went on last year and it was great. I donated one to a charity that collected gowns for girls to wear to high school proms. I have no idea what came of the other few bridesmaids dresses I've had!

I have reworn 2 bridesmaids dresses. Both on Halloween. You know the movie 27 Dresses ... I swear they made that movie about me ... right down to my sister dating the guy I really really liked, thank heavens they didn't get married! And, in my sister's defense, she is much much less self absorbed than the sister in the movie. She's my best friend these days. :)

I have 2 weddings in one day coming up ...

What a good idea for a bridesmaid dress re-wear! I have worn two of my bridesmaid dresses again.... as for the other 4, not yet!

So cute! I have so many of these dresses just hanging in my closet--I'm loving the idea of making an occasion to wear them again! So smart :) You ladies look beautiful!

The two weddings I was in were long dresses and those are harder to pull off going out than shorter..lol.

Love the idea of making up an event to wear the dress again! I've never been a bridesmaid so I don't have that problem - but if I did, and it was a cute pink dress like that, I'd probably wear it to one of those law school proms we always end up.

That's awesome! I think that dress looks great!

Daphne Hope said...

Love that you wore it again! I wore one of the three bridesmaid dresses I have in my closet!

You're lucky your dresses are cute! I've never reworn one :)

Faith said...

not yet ... i'm still crossing my fingers!

Clever idea! I re-wore one BM dress to a Christmas party one time. However I had trouble sitting in it because of the boning! I would love to wear the one from my SIL's wedding in March! It's my favorite of the 3 dresses I've worn. I'd wear it to a wedding this summer if it wasn't a family wedding! It's so cute!

Tiffany said...

SO fun!! My friends and I keep saying we're going to wear old BM dresses for the Oscars or something equally as fun but we haven't yet. And bottomless mimosas...you had me at hello!

Lindsay said...

What a fun way to wear your dresses again - you both look so pretty!

Legallyblondemel said...

Best idea ever.

And no, I've never re-worn one of those dresses again. Sigh.

My sister-in-law got married in November and she let us each pick our own dress, they just had to be long and black. I picked a dress that I really liked and that accented my baby bump (I was going to be 7 month pg at their wedding). I liked the dress so much I wore it for my maternity photo shoot. Also some friends of our had a "fancy dress" party for New Years Eve and I wore it again for that. So, I got to wear it 3 times and I fully intend to keep it incase I ever have the occasion to wear it again during another pregnancy. :)

You guys are too funny! And no, I've never worn a Bridesmaids dress again!

Kate said...

Oh how I love this post! I love that you wore your dresses again, I love that you were with your best friend, I love that you're both in pink and I love that you were in Long Beach -- my alma mater!!
