Fugly Bridesmaid Dresses!

Why are bridesmaid dresses always ugly??  I mean is it a rule that it has to look like an 80's prom dress?  Chiffon is a totally hideous fabric anyway.  I know wedding fashion is a weird thing to blog about but I can't help but think about it because all of my friends are tying the knot soon and maybe even myself.  I've been to my fair share of weddings and believe me, I have yet to find an amazing bridesmaid dress!  AND, what is with the brides making these girls wear the same damn dress?!?  Drives me crazy...  Everyone is unique and should have their own style.  This is how fashion even came about...people having their own original look.
I hate to bring her up but Kenley from the last season of Project Runway designed a brilliant bridesmaid dress!  It was short and sassy with a bubble bottom!  SO HOT!  If I were a bridesmaid I would be more than thrilled to wear that!  With a little bit of research, I found a designer with Kenley's flair.  Lazaro.  Brilliant use of fabrics, textures, and colors.  He even uses pockets!  I love it!  His wedding dress designs are amazing as well.  I just don't understand why more wedding/bridesmaid dress designers can't use upcoming trends in their new designs.  If I knew anything about textiles and sewing I would be all over the wedding dress business.  There could be lots of money to follow trendy designs.  
I'm from California but now live in Alabama.  There is a vast difference in style from one state to the other.  I understand that people in the South may not follow the trends of L.A. or New York simply because they are not surrounded by it.  BUT, why must the girls down here be so traditional??  I'm sorry but that's just boring.  Have some fun with your fashion, even if it is your wedding.  You can still be classy and fabulous at the same time without being trashy.  Coco Chanel knows what she's talking about...  
I don't mean to bash the traditional, old school way of a wedding.  However, times are changing.  Fashion is probably changing faster than we can keep up with.  It's time for wedding dress designers to throw the glitter and chiffon away!  It's time for bubblishous, flower happy, loose fitting, accessory friendly, fabulous bridesmaid dresses!  Don't forget your Christian Louboutin stilettos...screw the generic, ugly, Payless pumps that the bride makes you wear.
