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.

That way, she told the Daily Express, "the bridesmaid can choose something that flatters their body type that they will be able to wear at other events - rather than a pastel creation that will probably end up in the back of a wardrobe or the rail of a charity shop."

Of course, picking an outfit that flatters your body type can become tricky when bridesmaids are expected to wear matching dresses, a tradition that stretches back thousands of years.
