Do Everything Else: A few little extras can go a long way. Use pins, scarves, belts and jewelry to dress up simple ensembles or to give each dress an individual flair. But all these extra details will add up, so if it's not in your budget to spring for them, don't ask your girls to do so either. If you're really set on a little piece of flair, consider gifting it as a bridesmaid gift.
Decide on a Dress: Once you've found your favorites, finalize the dress with your bridal party. Email photos to the group for their opinions. And don't feel you have to bring everyone to the store with you. Your girls will appreciate that you want their input, but they might be happy to skip the chaos of all of them cramming into a small shop, and you can skip the hassle of trying to coordinate everyone's schedule for a shopping trip (not to mention everyone's clashing opinions).
