Rebecca Whitlinger has appeared on Oprah, the Today Show, Inside Edition and in PEOPLE mag, proving that you CAN wear a bridesmaid dress again. Her gold sequin gown from a 1988 wedding was destined to remain in the closet until she decided if she couldn’t wear it ANYWHERE, she’d wear it EVERYWHERE and take the pictures to prove it. Photo ops have included wearing it for driver’s license and passport photos, voting, scuba diving, Pittsburgh Steelers locker room locally and outside of the city including on a camel in Morocco, under the Eiffel Tower and at Machu Picchu in Peru. As the director of Pittsburgh’s Cancer Caring Center (www.cancercaring.org) she created a Bridesmaid fundraiser for 4 years with all proceeds benefiting the Center and she donated a portion of her book proceeds from “Always a Bridesmaid – 89 Ways to Recycle That Gown”. The dress still fits (breathing optional), and serves as an ideal cushion for breakables when she travels.
