Narrow Down Your Choices: If shopping didn't result in finding the dresses, narrow down your own choices for your bridesmaids to look at. You are the bride and it is totally okay for you to take charge in giving them some gorgeous options that they can look at. Doing it this way will leave you with the final choices in no time.
Size It Up: If possible, ask everyone in your bridal party to get measured by a professional seamstress or tailor at a department store if they can't make it to the store where you're ordering the dresses. Warn them that bridesmaid dresses sizes are not the same as traditional clothing ones, so chances are their usual size won't apply (read: they'll go up a size or two). Remember: It's always easier to take in a bigger dress than it is to let out a gown that's too small.
