1. Don’t leave everything up to your bridesmaids. We recommend choosing one or two details yourself (say, the color family and the silhouette, or the color and the brand) to help create a cohesive look and make shopping much easier for your girls. And be specific! There are a lot of shades of pink out there; the bride might be envisioning salmon while her girls are thinking fuchsia. So share pictures of what you have in mind and be willing to help if they seem stressed about it.

2. Let the girls know which dresses the others have chosen. No one wants to feel like she chose the wrong dress or that she’ll throw the look off balance, so when one of them picks a dress, give the others a head’s up. (Hint: if the bridal party seems really worried about this, you may want to assign specific shades or let the girls “claim” their favorites within your color family so things look balanced and everyone feels comfortable.)

3. Let your girls show their unique personalities with their accessories, hair, and makeup. We recommend letting bridesmaids choose their own shoes and hairstyles, as these things will have a big effect on how they feel on the big day, but also aren’t likely to ruin your vision.
