Check out dresses yourself first: Find a dress you like yourself before you ask for your bridesmaids' input. While it's important that you ask your bridesmaids' opinions before you settle on a dress, including them in the process right from the start is only going to make the decision harder. Taking all your bridesmaids with you on the first shopping trip will probably result in chaos. Find a dress you like, e_mail them a photo and ask for feedback. This gives them a starting point and an idea of your expectations. Listen to their comments on your initial choice and take it from there.
Think about the complexions and hair colours of your bridesmaids when choosing a colour, and bear their body shapes in mind when looking for styles. For example, if you want a strapless style, bigger busted bridesmaids may have trouble getting enough support, and if you want short skirts make sure your bridesmaids are happy to show off their legs. You can choose different styles or colours to suit individual bridesmaids; this is currently a fashionable option.
