For decades it seems that bridesmaid dresses have been viewed as these frumpy, oddly colored gowns almost purposely designed to look nothing short of heinous. The efforts of film and pop culture have only added fuel to the fires of this situation. While it makes for comedic genius on camera, it only fills bridesmaids with apprehension and fear of looking like the butt of a rather unfriendly joke. Happily enough, this misconception is more fantasy than fact.
With today's ever evolving style and groundbreaking changes made by emerging designers, bridesmaid dresses are being taken to new heights. No longer the ruffle loaded, gowns of the past, these elegant dresses are often chic and more importantly--versatile. They come in a variety of colors, and depending on the style they can be worn to any formal event after the wedding. Talk about a win-win situation.
