When deciding on a color and style for your bridesmaids' dresses, keep in mind the skin tone, shape, and height of those in the bridal party.
Be mindful: What looks good on Megan may not be that flattering on Carrie.
If you're open to ideas, it's tempting to ask everyone what color they'd like to wear ... DON'T! That could incite a war.
To keep the peace, here's a quick, three-step tip.
First: Get a full-length picture of each bridesmaid and find three colors you like and think will look good on everyone and email them to your maids. Let majority rule.
Next: Follow up with three shades of the chosen color. Here is where they can enact their autonomy and choose their own shade (if of course you're ok with multiple shades, if you aren't, skip this step).
Lastly: Send the ladies three styles (in the chosen color if possible). Let majority rule if you want them uniform, or let each choose the style they want if uniformity isn't of necessity to you.
This 3-step tip will help minimize options and potential stress.
Friends usually care more about making the bride happy than they do themselves anyway, but a good looking and comfortable bridesmaid does a happy bride make.
So, check out the season's popular color and style choices if you need ideas and have fun with the process.

Here are some pictures from my wedding on January 3, 2010 in Boracay, Philippines.
My dress was style no. L1009 Belsoie/Jasmine. I received so many compliments on it and people couldn't believe it was a bridesmaid dress! Thank you again for helping me choose and alter the perfect dress for my wedding day.
I wanted to thank you so very much for the beautiful dresses I purchased from you this Fall 2009 from the Etobicoke store! Everyone who assisted me with my dress were extremely kind and helpful, especially the seamstress who helped me with my fitting! I am so glad that I found your website online, and I recommend you to everyone! Photos is the bridal dress and the bridesmaids

So Miranda, tell us about your experience at Best for Bride.
It's been phenomenal. I have come in. I did not really have much an idea of what I wanted. The girls were able to pick off the shelves, kind of twick what my preferences were and tell me what body shape was going to work best for me.
In general, they were just totally patient with me. The whole experience was phenomenal and I cannot wait to come back and be fitted for my dress.
Wonderful, thank you so much.
We landed in here on Saturday afternoon unannounced and Donna and Denise were awesome. We spent last only 3 or 4 hours in here trying on a hundred dresses and then leaving with my ideal dress. Awesome place I would recommend anybody to come here at any time. They give great service, great prices, great atmosphere. Thank you.
Please tell me your ladies experience at Best for Bride.
I had a really positive experience at Best for Bride. We have been to over 10 different bridal shops and this was the one and this was the best one so far. We were ignored in other stores and then some places were to high then the other ones and this one just worked perfectly. We got her bridal gown (fantastic). We got her bridal gown and bridesmaid dresses. Fabulous. Thank you ladies.
