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.
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).
