Stick to your budget: If you are asking bridesmaids to pay for their own dresses, make sure you choose something that isn't extortionately expensive. Glossy wedding magazines are full of designer bridesmaids' dresses, but you can often find something similar for a fraction of the price.
Find the Shoes: Even if you fall in love with the perfect pair of four_inch stilettos, don't subject your girls to torture. If you're choosing the shoes for them, comfort should be the top priority. Then find a color that will complement the dress__metallic hues are a great option. Another (and more preferred) option is to tell your bridesmaids the specifics (color, open_ or close_toe, for instance) and let them find the perfect pair__some might already have it in their closets.
