It's thoughtful to have your bridesmaids wear dresses they can easily reuse for other occasions. Think about it; if you spent $150+ on a dress, wouldn't you want to get enough wear out of it? These photos from Ann Taylor also made me think that accessories that match their dresses would make nifty gifts for your girls. The photos were advertising how these dresses can be easily re-purposed. I say if you (the bride) can, gift your bridesmaids each with one or two items they can use to create a whole new look for a different occasion!
