Bridesmaid’s dresses are always kind of a joke – every bride says, “I want to get something you’ll wear again,” and then chooses some chiffon number that zero people will actually, you know. Wear again.

That said, there are some styles from the past that just couldn’t have been good ideas, even at the time. My own mother forced her “friends” into maroon velvet bolero vests and wide-brimmed hats with pink ribbons. Really.

But even if I pulled out her pictures (she would kill me), I’m not sure they could compete with these 15 vintage bridesmaid horror shows.
