Start the Search: Pick your own wedding gown before beginning the search for the bridesmaid attire. Your gown and their dresses should coordinate but don't have to be an exact match. For example, if yours is strapless, don't put the bridesmaids in long sleeves, or if your dress is ultra romantic, you might not want your bridesmaids in more modern silhouettes. Then you can either just start saving dresses that appeal to you or you can focus on a specific style or color.
If you're still at a loss for exactly which hue to choose, go for a general color, like green, and let your bridesmaids pick their favorite shades from light to dark for a trendy, mismatched look.

Just remember: Patterns work best in smaller parties and should be paired with simple accessories. Or, you could opt for an all_white bridal party, à la Kate Middleton or Solange Knowles, for a look that's crisp and chic.
