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.
Find complementary colors: Also, think about choosing a shade that goes well with a variety of skin tones. Stonewashed colors, like blush, greige (a combination of gray and beige) and sand, are universally flattering and right on trend. Jewel tones (think amethyst, emerald and sapphire) complement fairer complexions, while brighter, bolder hues, like cobalt blue and hot pink, pop against darker skin. Want an edgier feel? Try flattering metallics, like silver, bronze and champagne.
