Start the Search: Pick your own wedding gown before beginning the search for the bridesmaid attire. Your gown and their dresses should coordinate but don't have to be an exact match. For example, if yours is strapless, don't put the bridesmaids in long sleeves, or if your dress is ultra romantic, you might not want your bridesmaids in more modern silhouettes. Then you can either just start saving dresses that appeal to you or you can focus on a specific style or color.
Get your maid of honour to help: Your maid of honour should be someone that you trust completely and who is able to be honest with you. This means that their opinion on the bridesmaids' dresses is invaluable.
