Keep an open mind. The traditional one style for an entire wedding party can come off as old-fashioned. Your friends have different bodies, different personalities, and different quirks – Letting them express themselves through their dress choice is not only going to make for happier bridesmaids, but also for a more unique, modern, and stylish aesthetic.

Tell your maids what you want. We love the trend of letting bridesmaids pick their own dresses, but most brides still want some sense of control over what their bridal party is going to look like! Tell each of your friends to pick her top 2-3 styles and colors, and then make the final decisions yourself. That way, each bridesmaid retains some individuality and self-expression, but you have control over the overall look!

Start the shopping in advance. Make sure you leave enough time for alterations and unforeseen issues – It’s better to be safe than sorry! However, there are also now so many places where you can buy dresses off the, that allow you to purchase dresses much closer to the event. If you decide to go that route, make sure you’re open to different color and style options in case the store is out of a particular style/color combination!

Take your friends body type in mind. At the end of the day, one style rarely fits all, and the key to having a happy (and good looking!) wedding party is to make sure each girl feels good, and is wearing a dress that offers the appropriate fit and coverage for her assets.

If you like ruffles, make sure each dress has a ruffle detail, or if you like the look of braided straps, incorporate that detail in different ways on each dress. The cohesive element can also be the color! We love the look of bridal parties that choose to wear all different styles but in the same color.
