The Target Bridesmaid

I know I’m not the only one here that’s been a bridesmaid in a wedding or two…or more.  The highlight of the bridesmaid responsibility always seems to loom around the dress.  I’m very much convinced after have been in several weddings, having been married myself, and having bride’s as clients, that all bride’s think THEIR dress can be worn again after the wedding.  Well frankly…a lot of times that’s just not the case.  We always have the best intent when picking a dress for our dearest friends, but sometimes we just miss the mark on the dress and the price.  Let’s face it, who really wants to buy a $200+ dress that will sit in their closet or be donated?  Not most of us, but we do because we love our girlfriends, and that’s perfectly ok! 
Another thing I’m convinced of is that Target pipes things in the air to make you buy all sorts and kinds of things when really you only went in for 4 things.  Come on now…I know it’s not just me!  I love Target, I really really do.  Really.  There’s never a time I enter the store and don’t find something that tickle’s my fancy and ends up home with me. I’m sure I’ll be a fan for life. 


I recently discovered that my beloved Target is now in the bridesmaid dress business.  I think they really hit home with this too.  They offer nine different styles, three fabrics (shantung, chiffon, and sateen), and a variety of color options.  The real kicker???  All for $69.99 or less if on sale.  Swoon!  I’d say the vast majority of the styles available can certainly be worn again, that is assuming you have a place to go. They are certainly worth checking into, especially at the price point.  The only downside that I can think of is that they are only available on line which means no girl trips for dress fittings. 


It seems that more and more retailers are beginning to offer bridal attire and I wonder who’s next?  If you happen to get your hands on one of these lovelies or if your bridesmaids are wearing one, let me know.  I’d love to see pictures! 
What do you think about this one?  Cute for a rehearsal dinner, eh?
