Browsing the latest copy of Company magazine, I noticed that in their Cool-o-meter slot, they say “What’s a guest to wear if they’re in Coast/Reiss/Zara?” In part I understand, who wants to turn up wearing the same dress as the bridesmaids? Major faux-pas! On the other hand, I’m sure there are many brides and bridesmaids who are thrilled to be able to pick up the perfect dress off the rack without parting with a wad of cash and endless fittings. Do you think bridesmaid dresses on the High Street (or in the mall if you’re overseas) are here to stay? Take a vote!
