Wedding Dress Comes First: Your bridesmaid dress choices will depend hugely on the style of your wedding dress so make sure you have made your final choice on your dress before the bridesmaid shopping commences. You want to make sure that your bridesmaid outfits flatter your dress and overall bridal look.
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.
