Bridesmaids and your Maid of Honor are your wedding posse, there to help you plan and celebrate while you enter into the next chapter of your life. They usually get their own special
dresses for the wedding that coordinate with your overall design.

Wedding dresses cost above and beyond what any bridesmaid dresses would, so what about considering the alternative to a traditional "wedding dress"?
