Ask Katherine Heigl’s 27 Dresses character—chances are, you’re NOT going to shorten that bridesmaids dress and wear it again. What makes matters worse is that you shelled out $300 for that, um, interesting frock and now it’s taking up precious space in your closet.
Both of these wedding attire issues can be solved with a shopping mindset set in savings and style. So when your newly engaged friend starts asking your opinion on bridal party dresses, point her to these adorable and affordable picks.
Take a hint from Lauren Conrad, who is engaged herself, and style up this flirty sheath at your friend’s garden-themed nuptials.
