Start Looking at Styles: Each of your bridesmaids are likely to have different body shapes, heights and styles. Whilst it is still your wedding, taking these things into consideration is a really nice thing to do and will be much appreciated by your girls. Have a think about the styles and shapes of dresses you usually see them wearing and see if there are any that suit them all. Alternatively, there is always the option of having miss_match bridesmaid dresses as we mentioned above. This is a really popular wedding trend which we are seeing more and more of in recent years.
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.
