My never-ending mission to find wedding dresses that don't suck got a liiiiitle beyond control a few weeks ago when I called in dozens of bridesmiad gowns and then begged a few friends in the future over and play dress-up beside me. Here are the eight bridesmiad gowns we liked most from our backyard fashion show!

This silk chiffon number could be SO fun to twirl around in! It has a built-in bra situation store the top in place—without providing you with the dreaded back-skin overhang. Songbird in Lemon, $297.

When Vera Wang stops making super-cute bridesmiad gowns on the cheap, I will stop raving the White by Vera Wang, her collection for David's Bridal. But I hope on that day never comes! (Sorry I'm creating a weird face. It was the very best photo from the dress!) VW360083 in Ebony, $99.99.

My friend Jackie (you realize her came from here!) often does the high-waisted skirt thing, so I called in this dress together with her in mind. I think it looks fab on her behalf! Style A205.

I was OBSESSED with this particular dress, also from the newest shows, if this went down the runway. I love the small petal-y details and—the very best part!—pockets! Click here to determine it around the runway. And click here to determine the current offerings from Disney Maidens.

Beauty blogger Beth looks so party-ready here, I type of want to start dancing with this particular photo. So adorbs! Style NZ3233.

I loved this dress yourself in person, but if this arrived at the Glamour offices, I wasn't so sure. Then Beth slipped it on and ... KA-POW! She owned it, no?! Style XS1650 in Navy, $159.99.

Which one of these bridesmiad gowns is your favorite? Would you wish to wear any of them? And can you ask your pals to wear them as bridesmaids?

p.s. Please keep in mind that the models are my buddies. (And, um, me.) It's fine to not like the dresses, but please play nice within the comments when you are talking about the folks wearing the black prom dress!
