Okay, so I'm aware of the old "You can TOTALLY wear that again!" joke. I've told my crew that they can just pick a dress they like in any hue of purple from wherever, but they've all kind of gone deer-in-the-headlights so I've agreed to go on shopping trips to places like David's Bridal.
Am I deluding myself in thinking they might actually be able to buy a bridesmaid's dress that they really like and can wear again? I've been a bridesmaid twice and I have to admit I never even considered wearing my dress again. Maybe it's a silly thing to focus on.
