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.
Is Pregnancy on the Horizon?: Post and pre natal bridesmaids are always worth thinking about. If one of your bridesmaids is likely to have recently given birth at the time of your wedding or still be pregnant, factor this into the styles. Empire line dresses are a great choice for pregnant bridesmaids or buying a longer version of the dress so that it fits nicely over the bump can also be a great alternative to maternity_wear. Speak to the bridesmaid and see what she would feel comfortable wearing _ there are so many beautiful options to choose from.
