Trust us — your b-maids will definitely go for black bridesmaid dresses. Not only are they slimming (when compared to some of the other atrocious bridesmaid colors) but they can double as LBD’s long after the wedding has passed. Luckily, Nordstrom has 50% off black bridesmaid dresses now — from Monique Lhuillier to Allen Schwartz and Adrianna Papell.
Editors’ pick: this Eliza J One Shoulder Jersey Dress ($86.90, down from $158).
