Long story short, I wore mine to my high school prom. No regrets, not to mention I saved $700 :). It was a beautiful dress, and it would have been a shame to at least not get to wear it once more. I guess it was lucky to be the only bridesmaid in high school, or else I never would have worn it again.

I've never been a bridesmaid, but looking at the comments here I can see I'm in good company :)

As much money as I've plunked down on bridesmaid dresses - you're darned tooting that I'm going to wear 'em again if at all possible! I have a beautiful navy blue floor length with a white organza bow on the back with some heavy lace on the bodice that I have been able to wear to a couple of formal events again - yay! Another I was able to wear to a fancy Christmas party. And another was actually my Homecoming dress that I was able to wear to a friend's wedding, hehe.

I have never worn my bridesmaid dress again. She picked lime green and bright pink, it's not very cute.

When I was 5 or 6 I had a nice green flower girl dress made in a very soft velvet fabric that I got for my uncle wedding. The wedding was in October and so right after the wedding my mother did some alteration to turn it into a "princess dress" for Halloween. I also had other flower girl or bride maid dresses that I was able to wear again after some alterations. When it's possible with wedding style and bride choices, I try to choose dresses keeping in mind the idea of re-using it even if it implies to make some alterations. As those dresses can be expensive, I hate the idea of buying it to wear only once.

I've been a bridesmaid twice, and I've reworn one of the dresses. The other is very very bright pink, and not my style at all!

I haven't, but my BMs have! I said I wanted them all in black dresses that were knee to tea length. They got dresses that fit their bodies and at least one has been able to reuse hers! Another got hers for like 15 bucks, so I think it was win/win for everyone!

No, never. I have two, but as neither lilac nor magenta satin are particularly flattering on me, I will never wear them again. It seems so many brides choose light purple bridesmaid dresses- WHY? Is it to match the floral arrangements?

Good grief no! They all think they can be worn again and they never are - well, it does happen but it's rare. But, I figure, it's the brides day, she can do whatever she wants and I'll go with it, no matter how much I may hate the dress. If it's beautiful to her then, that's all that matters.

jamieLeah I don't think anyone would think you are cheap! Most people are in the same boat and don't want them to go to waste! I've used dresses as costumes afterward--sad I know. But I'm helping pick out a friends bridesmaids dresses and I hope its something I can wear again!

I took the A-line full-length strapless gown from my best friend's wedding and shortened it to cocktail length and added a high empire ribbon. I've worn this to a couple of parties. Now I am going to deconstruct the large panels on the dress for wall art/quilt/pillow pieces since that friend is having a baby girl and I want part of that dress material in her nursery.

I let me bridesmaid pick out their own dress but I picked the color and fabric, which is champagne so I hope they can all wear it again, even if they wanted to dye it black, they picked the actual dress, so they should be comfortable wearing it again

No...and I have 7 of them! Just don't know where I'd wear them...most bridesmaid dresses don't translate well to other occasions.

It would take a long time for me to want to wear a bridesmaid dress again. I'd just feel weird and worry that I'd run into a wedding guest or worse the bride and groom and they'd think I was really cheap.
