There are so many decisions to be made when picking the dresses for your bridesmaids. Do you want them in a specific color? Do you want them in black with the color focus on your bouquets? Where is your wedding? Is it inside or out? In nature or in a church? Should the dresses be long or short? Should they all match? Should they have different dresses in the same color? What about different dresses in different colors? There is no one answer to tradition anymore, it has become as personal as picking a wedding gown.
My suggestion…talk to your bridesmaids! See what they are comfortable in as well. Bounce ideas back and forth to each other, look at your different options, and use sites like Pinterest, Style Me Pretty and Ruffled for inspiration! Keep in mind a lot of dresses take about 14 weeks from order to delivery, so if you have a lot of girls in the wedding party, start sooner rather than later.
