Being asked to stand by your bestie’s side on their big day is an honor. It also comes with a few requirements, one of those being buying a bridesmaid dress. If you’ve ever had the opportunity to be in this role, you know the love hate relationship that comes with this dress. On the one hand, bridesmaid dresses today are much cuter than they were a couple of decades ago (sorry not sorry, early 2000s). Brides actually care if their bridesmaids look and feel good in the dresses they choose, and they almost always aim for the “you can wear this again” look. Let’s be honest though, nobody actually wears the dress again. We all just agree to spend the money on a one-time dress because it comes with the bridesmaid duties. But what if you could take that dress and use it in another way? We’ve come up with a few ideas for upcycling your bridesmaid dress so you get a little more than one night out of it!
