Make the dress reusable: Traditionally bridesmaids pay for their own dresses, but if you are sticking to this rule you should really find a dress that they can wear again. Look for colours that suit multiple occasions such as black, gold, green or brown, rather than shades of pink or lavender. Stick with simple, sleek styles such as empire waists and A_line skirts rather than ball gowns with puffed sleeves, or consider separates that your maids could wear again individually.
Be sure they'll look good: We've all heard about brides that dress their bridesmaids in unflattering gowns so they don't outshine the leading lady, but if you want happy bridesmaids and great wedding pictures you'll want to choose dresses that make them look good.
