35 Ridiculous Vintage Bridesmaids Dresses That Show Just How Much Time Has Changed

On the wedding day, the bride is supposed to be the one on the spotlight — it’s her biggest day after all. Her bridesmaid surely should look good beside her, but the glam belongs to the bride. But some brides take this to an extreme, just to be on that spotlight.

Or maybe time changes fashion trends so much, that after some the style that was “in” starts to look simply ridiculous. Either way, we’ve collected a series of vintage bridesmaids dresses that are so funny, that you’ll probably feel sorry for the women who wore them.

The 70s fashion brought outrageous patterns, floppy hats, and discernible silhouettes to the mix, 80s fashion later added vivid color, spandex, and space-filling hairdos. No matter the era, though, these absolutely unique vintage outfits would make your silly Spongebob PJs look like a classy suit. Scroll down to check out the images and let us know which is your favorite outrageous fashion statement!
