    I’m very young and have never been a bridesmaid, but in most cases I’d probably never wear the dress again.

    There have been *some* Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses I’ve seen that I might wear again, though. I’d wear the one my girls picked out to dinner or to church. Unfortunately they had to buy the dresses, not me. 😛

    I’ve been in 4 weddings and never wore the gown again.  Bummer!

    I did, but it was because the bride let me pick it out.

    I’ve only been a Bridesmaid or Best Man once, but that dress never got worn again.  Of the weddings I’ve been to (about 5 in the last year) there was only one that I could imagine the dresses being worn again.  That wedding had mismatched dresses where each girl had picked their own, so they all fit their personal styles.

    Yes, but only one, and that was because the bride let us choose any black dress.

    Yes, but just one. The bride let us pick whatever dress we wanted as long as it had pink or black on it. I wore that dress a lot.

    I’ve only been in one wedding and one coming up. I wore my Bridesmaid or Best Man dress once (to host a party) and probably won’t ever again. The one for the wedding coming up is actually a JC Penny summer dress that comes down just about the knees, and I can see myself wearing it a lot because it isn’t formal.

    I’ve never been a bridesmaid, but I just got married and had a really proud moment recently where I saw facebook pictures of one of my bridesmaids already re-wearing her dress to a holiday party! Yay 🙂

    I’ve been in two and my younger sister wore both dresses to her winter formals.

    I’ve been a Maid/Matron of Honor or bridesmaid in seven weddings, and the only time I wore a bridesmaids dress again is to a costume party. I added a tiara and made a sash and went as Miss America, LOL! 🙂

    Yes. I have worn 2 again. Both were short-One was a plain black raw silk dress and the other was a navy Lilly Pulitzer off the rack dress. My bridesmaids wore short ivory raw silk dresses (they could pick one from 10 different styles) and 5 of them have worn them again-a few more than once!

    I wore the long, navy skirt of a two-piece bridesmaid dress to a black-tie optional wedding. Other than that, no. My girls picked theirs from J Crew, and one already had plans to wear it to a wedding-yeah!

    I’ve only been a bridesmaid once, and I haven’t worn the dress again.  I’d be more inclined to wear a dress again if it was something I picked out myself (and something that wasn’t too formal since I don’t attend many “black tie only” events).
