I haven’t, only because I’ve never been a bridesmaid.  However, I’m quite sure that the MOHs at both my weddings wore their dresses again.  In each instance, there were no other female attendants to match, so I just told them to find a dress that they looked good in.

I wore one once out to a fancy dinner.  My husband really liked the dress on me, and although I was just eh about it, I figured if he liked it, I’d wear it 🙂

Honestly….nope. Mainly b/c they were in colors I normally wouldn’t wear in my every day life. I am the Maid/Matron of Honor in my sister’s wedding and the dress is a simple yet elegant, floor length, black gown. I am certain I will wear that again.

I’ve never been able to wear one again.  That being said, I’m hoping my bridesmaids will actually be able to pull out their outfits again.  We are having a casual/vintage wedding, and the bridesmaids will be wearing black pencil skirts of their choice with a white chic/elegant white top of their choice.  I sent them these pictures as inspiration.  They have done a really great job at picking out outfits so far!

Yes! But the bride only picked out the color and the length of the dress so I picked out a dress which I knew I would wear again.  One of my other Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses is hanging in the back of my closet, never to be seen again.

I’ve only been a Bridesmaid or Best Man once, and while the dress is lovely, I seriously doubt I’ll ever wear it again, purely because it feels so “Bridesmaidy” to me. I can’t imagine an occasion where I’ll be requiring a dress like that.

I’ve been a bridesmaid twice and both dresses were in pastel colors (light blue and baby pink) and floor length. Both are at a Goodwill somewhere.

Sadly not, but all of the dresses have been floor-length.  If they were tea-length, I’d be more likely to rewear.  Good luck!

I did.  I was in HS and liked dressing like a hippie, so I re-wore a dress from a renaissance wedding.  It was made just for me by a seamstress.  It was amazing!

@jamiemichelle: My sister actually is wearing that dress for her friends wedding, and she actually liked it so much she wore it before the wedding. I think hers was in lapis.

I have actually borrowed friends’ Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses to wear to other weddings. I think the key is short and not a typical bridesmaid-y material, like satin.

I hope my BM’s can wear their dresses again, but if not, I understand 🙂
