9 Bridesmaid Dresses You'll Wear After The Wedding (We Swear)

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Apart from finding the perfect wedding dress, it's traditionally the bride's responsibility to choose a dress for her friends to wear at the alter. Then the bridesmaid is responsible for purchasing a dress she hates and will never wear again.

But it does not have to be that way! We've done some research and taken some notes to find locally-sourced dresses that we guarantee your bridesmaids won't begrudge shelling out for. We suspect they will even enjoy wearing these beauties after their role as bridesmaid has been fulfilled. And that just might get the bridesmaids as excited for the big day as the bride!Sara Iravani
