Trade In Your Old Bridesmaid Dresses For A New LBD

It’s such an honor to be a bridesmaid in your friend’s wedding, but it’s also a heap of stress and expense. A new company aims to take at least some of the annoyance off you, by providing a fun option after the wedding’s over. NewlyMaid.com allows bridesmaids to recycle their old bridesmaids dresses and in exchange, get credit towards one of six styles of black dresses from the Dessy Group (they manufacture dresses for Cynthia Rowley and Lela Rose, among others). There are some conditions — your bridesmaid dress needs to be free of stains, rips, and broken zippers, and depending on the condition of it, you’ll get between 30 and 50 percent off the black dress of your choice. The six dress styles are pretty basic, but we suppose that’s kind of the idea; you get rid of something you’ll never wear again, and in exchange, get a garment that will be a whole lot more useful. Keep in mind, you’ll still be spending around $100 on any of these dresses, even with the discount. So, let us offer another alternative — gye the dress black yourself and get it professionally altered. [NewlyMaid]
