How many times have you been a brides maid and what did you do with the dresses afterward?

I have 4 brides maid dresses sitting in my closet.

  • 3 times. I donated all of the dresses to an inner city school so they could be used as prom dresses.

  • I've been one 3 times - one dress I used during high school for my choral and band concerts since we had to have formal dresses; one is still in my closet at my parent's house - it was hand made and so it's in storage; and the third dress I had altered to be t-length - i've worn it for chaperoning the high school i teach at homecoming and prom. If they're in good shape - and you don't want them - there are organizations like Princess for a Night in our area - that provide dresses for girls for homecoming and prom at no cost and you could donate them.

  • Only 2 times. Once for my sister and once for my best friend since high school. I think I have away the dresses to 2nd hand stores. I really don't remember.

  • Twice. For my best friend's wedding she told us to buy a brown dress, They didn't have to match or be too formal. I have worn that dress several times. The other is a big red dress from davids bridal, I used it as a Halloween costume last year, but will never wear it again. I think I am going to donate it to a prom dress for disadvantaged girls organization in town. They collect dresses and clean them and give them to girls that would not be able to buy a dress.

  • I have been a bridesmaid 3 times. One dress I have worn many times because it is a black dress, which can go with anything. One I actually made into a set of curtains for my twin daughters' room. The other is in my closet but now I might go sell it on Craigslist because someone else just gave me the idea! :)

  • once I put it in our garage sale - then it didn't sell so I donated it.

  • Three times - twice as a child & my mother tossed the dresses. Once as an adult but we didn't get to wear dresses - it was a JP.

    That said, I keep all that stuff! I still have my prom dress in my closet!

  • once. and when i got home from the wedding i peeled that thing off and threw it in a box, which almost a year later it is still there. lol it wasn't a bad dress just don't have a need to wear something like that again.

  • Only twice. I ended up donating the dresses to charity- one was not something I would ever choose to wear again, and one didn't come close to fitting anyhow because I was in the wedding two weeks after having a baby and was not anywhere near pre-baby size at the time.
