The rise of glam evening dresses in stores has instigated the move away from the traditional bridesmaid dresses – big, extravagent numbers worn once and sentimentally held on to forever, clogging up vital room in the closet. Savvy brides and their attendants have moved towards the high street – selecting gorgeous gowns that will look fab on the day and can be worn a bazillion times afterwards.
