Well one of my good friends is getting married and I’m one of the maids. And yes, the dresses will be matching and absolutely hideous. Why, why, why do they do this to bridesmaids? It pains me to actually pay hard earned money for a pile of monstrous polyester. Honestly, I love my female friends, and would never inflict this on them, so why is she doing this to me?
I know these are the unanswerable questions of the universe, so I guess I am just posting rhetorically.

@mspartridge: Why do “they” create hideous bridesmaid dresses in the first place? I’ll never understand…

ITA. I get it that it’s impossible to fit a range of body types, etc. But why make them even uglier than they need to be? And in hideous Bozo the clown colors. SOB.

Well….beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
What is ugly to you might be beautiful to someone else! 🙂

Maybe so that it makes the bride look even better in contrast?

I read the title as “ugly bridesmaids woes” hahha! I’m so glad it was a dress you were calling ugly, and not an actual bridesmaid!:)

Now I really want to see the dress!

What’s the dress?
Bear in mind, for every dress out there someone will think it’s gorgous and someone will think it’s hideous.

“Ugly Bridesmaid Hoes” would have been even better!

LOL at some of these responses!
I don’t want to post the dress, just in case someone else has chosen it for their b-maids and their feelings will be hurt. Just suffice it to say that it’s from the big bridal chain store whose name I will not mention (kinda like Voldemort, haha).

I don’t think I have ever seen an ugly Bridesmaid or Best Man dress! However I’ll be the first to admit my dress sense is nil
Having never been a Bridesmaid or Best Man and have ALWAYS wanted to be one (close friends and family either had family BM’s or none) I would wear ANYTHING and just smile and feel honoured that I had been chosen, and I would happily have paid any amount – despite the fact that BM’s don’t pay for their dresses in the U.K.
My Bridesmaid or Best Man had the same view….when I asked her what kind of Bridesmaid or Best Man dress she wanted she replied “You could tell me you wanted me to walk down the aisle in my underwear and I would do it for you”
