Pick Your Bridesmaids: When it comes to picking your bridesmaid dresses, it's almost impossible to decide on a style when you don't even know who your bridesmaids are. Make sure you pick your bridal squad first _ once you know who your special girls are, it will be much easier to decide on the dresses.
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.
