1. Bridesmaid dresses always look like a bridesmaid dress. I don't want to wear it again.
2. How many people get to go to enough formal parties where they can get away with wearing one? I wouldn't wear a bridesmaid dress to another wedding, and that is probably the only formal party I and most people get to go to.
3. Just because you think we will wear it again does not mean you can go over budget.
4. Don't have hurt feelings when I sell my dress. They take up half my closet.
