    To answer the question iin your title, I don’t enjoy it, but I do it for the sake of the relationship.

    As long as it isn’t totally unflattering to the point of humility!  My friend had to wear a tank- like a cami that was too small!  She got her a size that was too tight, and it was just that with a puffy bright skirt.  The bride had it out for her!  🙂

    When it fits properly and I am comfortable, I actually kind of like it when a bride has chosen a dress that I normally wouldn’t have chosen for myself.

    I mean… as long and I didn’t look absolutely ridiculous or like a hooker, I’d be fine with it. I know all my good friends really well and I don’t think I’d get stuck wearing something awful anyway. They’re all pretty fabulous ladies.

    I look forward to wearing something I wouldn’t normally pick out.  For my friends wedding this summer I ordered a dress in DB’s “begonia” which is an electric BRIGHT fushia pink.  I would never wear that color, but I’m excited to wear it just to see how it looks.

    @Mrs_Amanda:  oh my gosh I LOVE this color and you look BEAUTIFUL! Please share the website as you know I’m in the market for my BMs and this is sooo cuuuute!

    As for my vote, I’m pretty adventurous so I’d be excited more than anything because YES it gives you an excuse to step out of your comfort zone and what you’re wearing is really a reflection of the bride’s tastes and you are a good friend for supporting/wearing it for her!

    I’m in a wedding in June where our friend is making us infinity dresses in all different pinks and mine is a baby pink that I definitely would not have picked out myself but that I’m not opposed to wearing… I am the most olive/tanned skin in the party and I’m actually not sure why she chose the lightest color for me but whatever~ she’s the bride and her opinion reigns supreme! 

    I just hope I don’t look goofy in contrast to the other ladies in more muted purpley pinks…

    I think dresses should be FUN because everyone knows its kind of like a red carpet scenario~ the boys don’t care too much/have a lot of freedom but the girls do! ;D
