    I probably would wear that dress again if the length was a bit shorter, like right above the knee. I’m not a fan of t-length like that, personally. Other than that- very nice!

    It depends. If your bridesmaids are punk rock or hipstery (I don’t know what the kids call that these days) then probably not. But if they are into bohemian or romantic looks, with pearls, cardigans and pencil skirts, or if they attend church/temple frequently, then definitely. I personally would wear it again, but then my style icons are Audrey Hepburn and Emma Pilsbury from Glee, so take that for what it’s worth. It is cute, though, and regardless I don’t know of any who would mind wearing it on the day of the wedding.

    I would have it hemmed after the wedding (knee-length or just above) and then I would wear it again.

    I agree with the PPs. I’d get it hemmed first, but, other than that, it looks rewearable.

    I would totally wear that again if it was hemmed!

    I’m not sure if I could re-wear it. Maybe if I REALLY shortened it?

    But I think your BMs are expecting WAY too much! It’s $130, and they don’t have to pay any tax. They should be happy you’re not putting them in any of these!

    That length is really, really awkward.  I would find something knee-length.

    @arwenlynne:  Keep looking. I’d be pretty ticked off if the bride went 35% over the budget. Not cool, and it’s not that great of a dress, to be honest. I am pretty girly but I probably wouldn’t wear that again.

    I personally prob wouldn’t wear it again bc it’s not something I’d wear….. Of course if I were a Bridesmaid or Best Man I’d wear anything for the bride thou!

    @arwenlynne:  I think it depends on the style you are going for your wedding. It is pretty for a wedding but if I had to wear that for a bridesmaid dress, I wouldn’t wear it again because it kind of looks obvious that it is a bridesmaid dress. I think if you went for a chiffon dress that had a shorter length and nice draping, that would be more re-wearable than the current dress you are looking at. And like PP, I am not a huge fan of tea length dresses (except maybe in wedding dresses) so a shorter length might look better, either that or go long! Have you asked your girls what they like in terms of styles and looks? I did that with mine and it helped me narrow down some choices. The style I chose isn’t re-wearable but it is something they all like. Cool Good luck with your search!

    I think its really nice. I would def wear it again with a little hem. Its a really good price, the last 2 bridesmaid dresses I had to buy were $225 & $275!!  Your girls are lucky!

    The length is too weird. Not long or short enough to be reworn for formal events. Also if it’s in light pink, it looks like skin showing through the chest. 

    Have you looked at David’s bridal?

    Personally, I like this dress choice… I think it is very classic.

    The price is AMAZING for a Bridesmaid Dress IMO !!

    I don’t see it as tea length as others have commented (that would be mid-calf)… this is pretty much at / just below the knee (depending on how tall one is)

    Like the other Bees has said, if the gals want to they can always shorten it after the Wedding if they think that means it would be less Bridesmaidy.
