    If you do little black dresses, those are re-wearable. A friend of mine picked out the dresses for her maids at Black House White Market.

    I personally did not want black for my maids and they are wearing (oh yes I am that bride) long pink taffeta a-line gowns. I know the girls won’t wear them again. Maybe, one girly bridesmaid can shorten hers and wear it to swing dance but I doubt it. 

    There are many organizations that you can donate your dress and it goes to underpriviledged teens for their proms. My mother volunteers in a thrift shop and often dresses girls for prom, so I am asking my maids to donate them there if they really cannot see them wearing it again.

    Two maids said that they had cousins and little sisters that are going to prom and they will pass it on to them.

    So be creative with the re-wearing! πŸ™‚

    But, no I have never re-worn any bmaid dress…

    I would say that if you really want them to be able to wear the dress again, keep them as simple as possible. Pick a style that has been around for a long time, one that was worn in the 1950’s- today. There are plenty out there although most of them are little black dresses.
