Start the Search: Pick your own wedding gown before beginning the search for the bridesmaid attire. Your gown and their dresses should coordinate but don't have to be an exact match. For example, if yours is strapless, don't put the bridesmaids in long sleeves, or if your dress is ultra romantic, you might not want your bridesmaids in more modern silhouettes. Then you can either just start saving dresses that appeal to you or you can focus on a specific style or color.
Is Pregnancy on the Horizon?: Post and pre natal bridesmaids are always worth thinking about. If one of your bridesmaids is likely to have recently given birth at the time of your wedding or still be pregnant, factor this into the styles. Empire line dresses are a great choice for pregnant bridesmaids or buying a longer version of the dress so that it fits nicely over the bump can also be a great alternative to maternity_wear. Speak to the bridesmaid and see what she would feel comfortable wearing _ there are so many beautiful options to choose from.
