    this has been a really great post on what to really do with your old bridesmaid dresses. it’s the first i have seen where the dresses are styled. brides always want to justify expensive bridesmaid dresses by saying “you can wear them again and again!”, but this is the first place where it has been realistically done. thanks GG!
