Read bridal magazines and clip out some pictures of your favorites. Browse the internet for ideas. Also, call recently married friends and relatives for some recommendations of bridal salons to visit.

When you go to bridal salon, show them some of your cut out pictures of bridesmaid dress favorites. This will immediately convey to your bridal consultant the types of dresses you are looking for.

One general stylistic rule to consider, if the bride is wearing a floor-length gown, her bridesmaids should do the same.

Traditionally, it’s the bride’s privilege to choose the style, color, and fabric for all her bridesmaids’ dresses.

Since most bridesmaid’s body types differ dramatically, some brides choose a dress manufacturer that offers different styles in the same fabric and color for more flexibility. In this case, the bride will still ask for certain stylistic rules, like no dresses above the knees, or no strapless dresses.

In any event, whether you go the traditional single bridesmaid dress route or the more flexible one, your main focus should be finding dresses that complement your wedding gown and wedding style.

There are many considerations in choosing the color of your bridesmaids’ dresses – the time of year, the color of your flowers, the color of your wedding gown, your overall wedding style or theme, etc.. Currently, pale colors like platinum, silver, ivory, light sage are popular, but some colors, like black, are always in fashion. Whatever color you choose, remember that you always want the bride to stand out when next to her bridesmaids, and not the other way around.
