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.

I want to thank everyone from Best for Bride who helped me during the hectic planning of my wedding. Everything went off perfectly, and a lot of it had to do with the help of everyone there.
I was worried about getting decor done at an affordable price, but when roaming around on the BFB website, I saw that it was offered. I showed up to the church and was amazed with the aisle drapery! Then showing up at the reception and seeing the head table - it was perfect. Thank you so much.
A special thank you to a couple of ladies:
Melloney - Thank you for being so supportive and assuring me that my dress would be perfect for the wedding. Thanks for not thinking I was a crazy lady when I bawled my eyes out in the change room!
Larissa - You're amazing. I would have been a wreck if I had not had you to help me with all of my dress woes. I've sent you another note of thanks. I hope that you can help me with the bridesmaid dress I will need in September 2011.
Again, thank you to everyone at Best for Bride. I'm sending a couple of pictures from my wedding on October 2, 2010.
I wanted to thank everyone at best for bride once again for the wonderful service I received. When I arrived at your store I was pretty nervous. I had no idea what I was looking for, what would suite me or what I even wanted. My mother has been ill the last little while, and dress shopping was not something she could really participate in, making the ordeal that much more stressful. The staff at best for bride treated me like a daughter from the selection, to the fittings, right down to the alterations. I was so happy with my dress and it was well within budget. I got so many complements about my dress on and after the wedding day.
Thank you again, it really meant a lot.
I'm sending along 2 pictures from my wedding day on January 22, 2011.
I loved my dress! Everyone loved my dress! It added to the wonderful day all together.
My experience buying the dress was very pleasant and easy.
Thank you to everyone that helped me.
