Hone In on Hues: If color is key, there are a few ways to approach choosing the right one. First, keep in mind the color schemes at your ceremony and reception sites, as well as your palette. (If your wedding will be at a rustic inn that has burgundy and dark green décor, you should probably rule out fuchsia bridesmaid dresses.) Second, decide if you'd like everyone in your bridal party to wear the same color, or if you'd rather choose a color scheme. Don't be afraid to experiment with different shades of the same hue to add some variety.
Give Yourself Time: As well as giving yourself time to find the bridesmaid dresses, delivery and alterations also need to factor into this time_scale. There is no way of predicting things getting lost in the post, not fitting or needing slight alterations so leaving a few months breathing space is always a good idea.
