Recession Fashion

Per Wikipedia, "the term recession generally describes the reduction of a country's gross domestic product (GDP) for at least two quarters.  The usual dictionary definition is 'a period of reduced economic activity,' a business cycle contraction."  And for some time it's been safe to say we're experiencing a recession.  So what does this mean for you gals getting ready to walk down the aisle, preparing to stand up as a bridesmaid or those just joining in the party?  This could be the time to test a more practical approach.
