Finally, let the season be your guide. Rich, saturated colors__such as deep plum and chocolate__work well in the fall and winter months, while lighter shades such as celadon and iris are perfect for spring and summer. Pro tip: If opting for prints instead of solids, keep the rest of the look simple__think: monochromatic bouquets paired with sweet and simple hairstyles and jewelry.
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.
