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.
Stick to your budget: If you are asking bridesmaids to pay for their own dresses, make sure you choose something that isn't extortionately expensive. Glossy wedding magazines are full of designer bridesmaids' dresses, but you can often find something similar for a fraction of the price.
