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.
Set the Budget: Between the dress, shoes, jewelry and other expenses, being a bridesmaid can really start to add up. When it comes to the price of the dress you choose for your attendants, be mindful of their lifestyles. A pricier option may be a financial burden for one or more of your bridesmaids so consider some cost_effective options like buying a dress off_the_rack, cutting the cost of alterations or deciding on the color and letting your girls choose the dress that fits their budget.
