I have attended charity gallas and I would wear that dress to one of them and be very happy. It is your day and you picked a great dress. Go with what you truly want. And good choice buying their dress – I have been forced to buy some awful and expensive dresses in the past that take up closet space ( I can’t donate them to the prom program because well lets say I don’t take care of the dress through out the night. One has friction burns from sliding across the floor on my knees – lol the bride was upset no one was drinking the wine so I quickly drank all the bottles near by so the next time she looked she was beaming happy that people did like her choice)

I love the Dessy dress.
And, for my sister’s wedding we had Anne Taylor dresses that we “could wear again.” That thing has been in my closet for a year and a half. Every time I pull it out it out, I’m like, ‘ewww, I look like a bridesmaid.’ There’s nothing wrong with it, but it has a stigma now.
Besides, I think the Dessy dress “can be worn again.”

Being an encore bride, I am somewhat more inclined to allow the bridesmaids to pick their own dress. Mostly a dress they’ll wear again. So, I’m for the LBD. I am so in love with the Melrose dress, but, it’s not recyclable. You know? where could they wear it again? If you pay for the dresses, then, I say pick whatever you want. However, if they are buying their own dresses, let them pick and be able to get something they like and will wear again.

I also went against the grain and picked the gift card option. I think the dress is pretty, but in photos I think it’ll look WAY too busy. Plus, if your girls aren’t stick thin, it may not look all that great since it appears to be a very clingy dress. Just my thoughts!

Having been a bridesmaid, I’d totally be (personally) happy with a gift certificate for a LBD. (I’m a bit biased here though since I’ve just been cleaning out the closet and gasping at the dresses that are hanging in the closet!) LOL. 🙂
