    FG - at the time did you think those were ugly? I remember all the weddings in the 80s having dresses just like that and we thought we were HOT! In retrospect my bridesmaids were hideous, but at the time we squealed with delight! It was all Princess Diana's fault with those poofy, ruffly dresses her attendants wore!

    Hmmm, confused...thought pics had to be 125 pixels or less, so this is too tiny to see the lovely ivory tuxedo shirts with rainbow-colored satin cumberbunds and bowties!

    My sister-in-law's bridesmaids--this wedding took place only two years ago, so there's no excuse. Jewel tones...shiny satin...hugging every unpleasant bulge. They were scarier in real life. Thank goodness I was a matron and not a maid. Faces have been obscured to protect the innocent.

    Purple satin bolero jackets. Four words that should never appear in the same sentence, don't you think? My friend's wedding, circa 1993. I'll try to dig up a pic. Oh yeah, and underneath the jackets we had to wear strapless purple satin dresses with a peplum at the back. During the reception the boning tore through the bodice of the dresses - I vaguely remember all of us waving the plastic strips in the air while we were dancing. Thank God for Russian vodka shots...

    The best bridal wear I ever saw at a wedding was, the bride wore a white leather motorcycle jacket, white lace camisole top, white leather micro mini-skirt and white knee-high, spike heeled go-go boots. The brides maids all wore the same, only in black.

    Oddly enough, the groom, best man and ushers all wore kilts and full tarter. It was a strange wedding to say the least.

    We should add prom dresses in here. I've seen some of those that are pretty bad too.

    Now THAT Is hilarious! which is why I started this thread!!!

    Molly, I do remember wearing several "princess Di" dresses in the eighties and thinking oh WOW, but this paticular ensemble did provoke the NO WAY! reaction. The lace doile at the neck was the worst!! Of course in the eighties the puffy sleeves, peplums and taffeta were the thing!!

    Just to be fair here is a picture of what my girls wore ( in the 80's) I had a Christmas wedding, church was decked out to look like a park in the winter, complete w/park benches, snow, street lamps, leafless trees w/lights, carolers, cobble stone pathways.. geeze someone should have shot me! Anyway, the girls wore black velvet tops, straight Christmas plaid skirts and carried muffs!

    This is my sister and my Dad.

    I think I might have ENJOYED being a bridesmaid at that wedding! You can't go wrong with black leather, that's my motto.

    The worst bridesmaid's dress I've ever had to wear was for my friend Sherry's wedding a few years ago; she put us all in white dresses her MIL had made. They were floor-length and had long-sleeves and came up to the neck. It was an August wedding. And they turned off the AC in the church because it was blowing out the candles. So we're all there in these ghastly, gauzy white shrouds -- with enormous strips of black chiffon tied around our waists and tied into a huge BOW at our back, like an obi -- and we're sweating bullets. It was heinous. But I don't have pictures.

    ETA: Firegirl, if you'd tried to put me in that plaid skirt I'd have had to smother you with the muff.
