Be upfront about budgets
Weddings can sometimes feel like an etiquette minefield, and your bridal party members’ budget is one of those sensitive topics that can disrupt even the most meticulously planned process. Don’t put off having that conversation, advises Hanlin. It will help determine where you should shop. Luckily, bridesmaids today have a variety of gorgeous options at any price point, whether they choose to buy off the rack or opt for custom designer frocks at high-end salons. Also don’t forget to factor in costs for alterations when setting your budget. “Almost 75 percent of bridesmaids need to have their dresses altered,” says Hanlin. “That cost can be anywhere from $25 to over $100.” Read more at Brides

Take a look at your own dress. Think about your gown and overall wedding style. Is it classic, modern, or maybe vintage? Your bridesmaids’ dresses should fit the vibe. If you’re wearing a flowy, bohemian lace dress, your maids might look out of place in formal taffeta dresses.
Consider the season and time of day. The date of the wedding is probably a big factor in your décor—fall tones and apple centerpieces for October, peonies and spring colors for May—but the time of day matters, too. Black dresses could be perfect for November but a little forced for an outdoor, mid-day ceremony. Keep reading at Real Simple

Coping With Different Opinions

Have an Open Mind
Repeat this mantra: “It’s not my wedding.” Before you get anxious or defensive about what your engaged friend is looking for in her bridesmaid dresses, whether it’s a style or color you’re not partial to, keep your mind open and give it a shot. Best case scenario, you put the dress on and it’s totally fabulous on you. Worst case scenario? You come out of the dressing room in something that’s just not working — and hopefully the bride realizes maybe it’s not the best choice. Continue reading at Brides
