Got a tacky bridesmaid dress in your closet?

  1. NurseDennie's thread about tacky wedding-related behaviour reminded me of this contest --check out the slideshow in the upper right corner--it is hilarious!

    Dude, what is UP with all the neon foil dresses? (As a buddy of mine stated after viewing the slideshow, "Friends don't let friends wear Mylar.")

    Anyone else have to wear a similar garment to placate a girlfriend or relative? (kaknurse, I know you had issues w/your bridesmaid dress, but at least the dresses you were being asked to consider weren't, in and of themselves, fugly.) Share the horror. Better yet, share the pictures.

    YES!!! I had to wear one that I SWEAR was made out of curtain material with a HAT to match! I looked like Fannie Mae.
    The "dress" and that hat went to Goodwill the NEXT day.

    The Biggest Lies of All Time:

    Don't worry - I've had a vasectomy.

    No, she's never been incontinent.

    Only 1 or 2 beers a week.

    And... the style can be worn again as a chic cocktail dress..... and the color will be so becoming to you.


    Just call me a six time bridesmaid loser in the game of Love. And if I ever see a dyed to match peau de soie shoe again, may I run screaming into the night like a banshee.

    I wore one about 7 years ago that was baaaaaaaad.... I'm a big girl, ya know... And this dress was pink paisley. Get the picture? I walked out into my mom's living room and she about busted a gut! The only thing she could say was "You'd make a lovely sofa!" *SIGH* !! If only I had a photo! LOLOLOL

    OMG, YOU CRACK ME UP!!!

    Fortunately, no, all my girlfriends have had (thank God) good taste and selected bridesmaid dresses that were actually PRETTY. Lord have mercy, the brides who selected the FOIL dresses in the slideshow must have been HIGH or really had it in for their bridesmaids!!! Holy crap!!!

    Those bridesmaids dresses were hideous! I've never been a bridesmaid, only a bride. Hmmmm....must find friend who is not married. I've helped pick out bridesmaid dresses. Good friends don't let their good friends pick bridesmaid dresses that can haunt you for the rest of your life. Omg, think of the pictures.
