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.
Do Everything Else: A few little extras can go a long way. Use pins, scarves, belts and jewelry to dress up simple ensembles or to give each dress an individual flair. But all these extra details will add up, so if it's not in your budget to spring for them, don't ask your girls to do so either. If you're really set on a little piece of flair, consider gifting it as a bridesmaid gift.
