Place Your Order: Follow this simple checklist to make sure you don't miss any of the important details when ordering their gowns: Order all the dresses at the same time so they're from the same dye lot. If many of the bridesmaids live out of town, collect all the measurements and money and coordinate with the dress shop yourself, or enlist your maid of honor's help.
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.
