BBC Radio Kent Interview Nova About Bridesmaid's Dresses

Being asked to serve as a bridesmaid is an honour that can cement a long-term friendship or reinforce a family bond. But sadly, the vast majority of bridesmaids don't actually like the dresses they wear, according to new research.
A survey of more than 1,000 women in the U.K. revealed that 78% of bridesmaids - nearly eight in ten - disliked their wedding day look.
The research by fashion retailer Simply Be suggests that old-fashioned politeness and good manners are partly responsible. Some 86% of women said they believe a bridesmaid should accept a bride's choice of outfit without complaining. Just 2% said they would rather refuse to be a bridesmaid than wear a terrible dress. The survey also found that the most unpopular shade of bridesmaids' dress is peach.
BBC Radio Kent interviewed Nova Wedding Planning about their experience of the dramas surrounding bridesmaids dresses.
