Size It Up: If possible, ask everyone in your bridal party to get measured by a professional seamstress or tailor at a department store if they can't make it to the store where you're ordering the dresses. Warn them that bridesmaid dresses sizes are not the same as traditional clothing ones, so chances are their usual size won't apply (read: they'll go up a size or two). Remember: It's always easier to take in a bigger dress than it is to let out a gown that's too small.
The Finishing Touches: As well as shopping around for accessories, shoes and deciding on your bridesmaids hairstyles, be sure to give your groom a heads up on your choices. As well as matching your theme and wedding dress, it's always a nice touch to have the bridesmaid dresses tie in with the suits worn by the best man and ushers _ even if it's just a pocket square or a matching tie, it makes all the difference.
