Find a bridesmaid dress that they will love and use again.

There are few things more cliche during wedding season than telling your flock of bridesmaids, "It's a dress you can wear again!"

Ranging in hue from bold cherry red and deep navy to light-as-air yellow and mint green, we found 16 candy-colored dresses in a variety of fabrics and cuts that will please even the pickiest of 'maids. Sure, you don't feel the need to wear your gorgeous white gown again, but if you're asking your most treasured friends and family to shell out for a dress for you, the least you can do is make it one they will actually wear again. Here's how:

First, avoid bridal retailers and surf around on e-commerce sites you normally shop, like Net-a-Porter, FarFetch, Shopbop and Piperlime. Search through their dress selection, narrowing things down by occasion (cocktail, vacation, evening) or color.

Another tip? Decide on a shade you like, and let your bridesmaids select a dress for themselves. You'll get final approval, of course, but when each woman can seek out a frock that she finds flattering and lovely, she'll feel better about buying it and be more likely to wear it again.
