I don’t think I have pictures, but mine has to be a short sleeved navy number, floor length with navy opera length gloves, pearl chokers, and hair had to be up.  It doesn’t sound that bad, but at the time I was 19 years old, and I looked like I was 40.  It just wasn’t very youthful.

I dont have a picture because I burned the ones I had but I was in a summer wedding in 105 degreee heat 5 months pregnant in a Ryal Blue full length VELVET dress with White stockings, white dyeable shoes and a French Roll…. Yeah it was cruel and unusual punishment. O did I mention the spaghetti straps from hell and the cape (yes cape) that went with it??

Luckily I haven’t had to wear one ~ but remember in the 80s the trend was to have peach coloured dresses with big puffed up sleeves.

Sorry I have no pictures of me in the dress as I burnt them all lol. I do have the photo they were based off of though. Imagine paying good money to some China replica place for these hideous things! Our were bright orange.Has anyone ever been a bridesmaid and didn't like the dress? :  wedding V4943

@secondchances: Oh my I am speechless – that is atrocious.

My SIL made me wear a hideous homemade emerald green satin number (think really christmasy looking) in July – it was awful and hot and she had us wear white leather pumps with it -classy

She was a very insecure bride and told me that she had to pick the ugliest vintage dresses she could find so I didn’t outshine her. LOL gotta love the honesty!

@secondchances: Oh wow!  Was it some kind of renaissance theme or something at least?

@secondchances: Heh… I think it is kind of cool looking…not so much for a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress and not so much in orange. But over all it isn’t totally awful, at least I don’t think. Oh but certainly wouldn’t be for your average wedding, they are very “period” sort of dresses.

I am glad you guys love it. Too bad I cut it up and crafted with it or I woulda mailed it to ya LOL!

It was a 60’s prom theme. She decorated like you were at a prom from that era (based it all off old family photos). Her dress was actually kind of cool and not too vintagey unfortunately I burnt all photos of me and her because of that dress.

I tried to talk her into these shades:

Instead it was this color:

Could it possible get any worse?

And indeed it can because we also wore hats similar to these: (Another fine China replica)

Picure orange hat with black and green feathers. I so wish I was joking! Now if you followed my dress thread you know I love vintage. But seriously this getup??

LOL at least no pics exist of me in that dress outside her family. I made sure of it!
