Keep costs in mind: If any of your friends have been in a bridal party before, they'll know bridesmaids pay for their own dresses. But a gentle reminder is never a bad idea. When it comes to price, try to be considerate of your friends' lifestyles. If you're concerned your wedding might be a financial burden for one or more of your bridesmaids, focus your search on dresses in a more affordable range, or select a color you like and let them pick their own style. Another idea: Take a cue from the guys and consider renting your bridesmaid dresses. Rental sites like Rent the Runway let your girls choose high_end designers in a wide range of styles and colors for a fraction of the cost.
Place Your Order: Follow this simple checklist to make sure you don't miss any of the important details when ordering their gowns: Order all the dresses at the same time so they're from the same dye lot. If many of the bridesmaids live out of town, collect all the measurements and money and coordinate with the dress shop yourself, or enlist your maid of honor's help.
