Hone In on Hues: If color is key, there are a few ways to approach choosing the right one. First, keep in mind the color schemes at your ceremony and reception sites, as well as your palette. (If your wedding will be at a rustic inn that has burgundy and dark green décor, you should probably rule out fuchsia bridesmaid dresses.) Second, decide if you'd like everyone in your bridal party to wear the same color, or if you'd rather choose a color scheme. Don't be afraid to experiment with different shades of the same hue to add some variety.
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.
