Shop accordingly: Consider what kind of shopping experience will suit your personality best. If you tend to have strong opinions, it's probably better to shop alone (or with just one friend). If you prefer more input, take the whole gang and give them guidelines, like color or fabric. Stick to a schedule: To ensure your bridal party matches your style, order your gown before making any decisions about the bridesmaid dresses.
Select a dress shade: There are several foolproof ways to pick the perfect color. One of the easiest methods is to play off the color schemes of your palette, the venue and the season. For instance, if your wedding will be held at a rustic vineyard with burgundy décor, you might want to rule out clashing hot pink dresses. Rich colors__marsala and emerald__work well in the fall and winter months, while lighter shades__mint and lavender__are perfect for spring and summer.
