    I highly recommend White House Black Market.  We got my bridesmaids dresses from there and they were extremely helpful in locating sizes and doing price changes if they went on sale after we purchased them (within so many days of course).  We got the dresses for about $70 each, and the girls love them.  I’m glad they have a dress they like and want to wear again, and it was easy on my budget!  I’ve heard of some choosing to let their BMs choose their own dress.  If you do this, I would probably suggest making sure they know you have final veto power, unless that doesn’t worry you at all.  If you go with them to help choose their dress, that could be nice bonding time for you to spend with each of them.  Good luck!

    I voted for let them pick their own black strapless dresses, but actually I think instead of specifying strapless it would look more cohesive if you specified a length instead and let them pick out whatever neckline they like.  Black is an easy one to tie together and I’ll bet they all come together really well!

    I voted for having them find their own black strapless dresses – one thing to be careful of, though, is that if you’ve got any ladies who are well-endowed up top they might not be too keen on the strapless idea.

    It was very generous of you to offer to pay for the bridesmaid dresses in the first place. maybe if you’re worried about them being upset about having to pay for their own dresses you could offer to pay a flat amount, say $75 or $100 (if you want) towards their dresses.  Then they could come up with the difference. Also, I would reccomend specifying length over style.  It will look more cohesive that way. Also make sure you get veto power before setting them loose!
