Well before you start the physical shopping process, do some research online to find out about things like current trends and what kinds of styles will compliment your own gown. If you’re open to it or feel you need the help, get your bridal party in on the online research and have them send you suggestions for styles and colors they like.
Regardless of whether you’re fronting the bill for your bridesmaid’s dresses or your bridal party will be chipping in, make sure you outline a budget before you start shopping. Knowing your budget is crucial because it will affect where you shop. Don’t forget to factor in alteration costs.
Get measurements done professionally
When it comes to measurements, you don’t want any guesswork. This rings especially true if you’re opting for custom bridesmaid’s dresses. Getting the measurements right from the outset could also decrease your alteration costs down the line.
Bring the right undergarments, shoes, and accessories
When it’s finally time to start shopping, make sure you dress for the occasion. This means wearing nude colored undergarments and a strapless bra if you have one. Also, don’t forget to bring the shoes and other accessories you will be wearing on the day, so that you can get the most accurate feel possible for what the dresses might look like on the big day.
