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.

Our wedding was on June 30, 2009 in Cuba, at the Melia Las Dunas. We had a beautiful outdoor ceremony...in the 35C heat. But it's ok, we jumped into the ocean and the pool afterward to cool off :) Thank you for helping me make my dress dreams come true (and saving me almost 600$! )
P.S. The dress is still perfect!
I found here great selection of wedding dresses at most reasonable prices. You do not need to see another store. Shopping at BfB is a wonderful experience, and be prepared to spend here close to three hours trying on those wonderful dresses. Bring in your bridesmaids and the whole extended family to make this experience even more pleasurable and festive (just like in those shows on TV). Lucy was my shopping associate helping me to find THE RIGHT DRESS. You can say that: "I love Lucy". She is a good listener and she always brings the exact dress that I wanted to try on next. It certainly seems that she knows the whole inventory by heart. She is brutally honest with her opinions which are of great help. You can trust her point of view. The major assets of this store are: Lucy, endless inventory of dresses, reasonable prices, and the overall customer service. I found the dream dress that fits for the occasion of a lifetime.
I bought two "mother of the groom" dresses from Denise at Best for Bride in Barrie. The first wedding was on April 29, 2011. I have attached a picture showing the mother of the groom dress. The next wedding is June 25 - I will send the picture after that. The bride wore a dress that was made by a friend. I would like to thank Denise for a wonderful experience I had.

OK. My name is Sam and I came to Best for Bride very very nervous and anxious and as soon as I walked in the door Denise and Donna were so helpful and they said that I was not going to leave this place without finding the dress of my dreams and they were absolutely correct. I think it was the seventh dress that I tried on and I knew right away that is was the dress that I was going to wear for my special date and they gave me the option for rental because I was on a very fixed budget and the rental was great because it was the dress that I wanted and I knew that I could afford it. And so I was very very happy.
Hi my name is Lise Renaud. I just have a little story to tell. I came here a couple weeks ago looking for a a wedding dress for my future daughter in law who lives up north in a remote area and she doesn't have access to any stores so I as a good future mother in law decided to come and I came and this when ... I came into this store this wonderful young lady named Taylor was here and she had the biggest smile She said: "May I help you" and I told her the predicament ... future daughter in law, pregnant, getting marrying in June, has a limited budget and she found the most beautiful dress because I had the picture of my future daughter in law was interested in and it was so close to this dress so Taylor went on to the computer and phoned out if it comes in white or beige she did, it did, she told me: "Yes we would have it on time". She said me how we should have her measured and I would come in the next day to order it and I did. And I just came today to say thank you to Taylor cause were so happy.
