I chose the dresses I liked and made sure they were from a designer that is sold all over the place. I decided on 3 Dessy dresses and called shops local to my bridesmaids to make sure they could go try them on. We ordered them from a shop that is local to me.

Unless you definitely want one particular style, why don’t you pick a designer, a color, and a fabric and tell them all to get a short-style dress from that?

If you choose to use DB make sure you order all the dresses from one store that way you can ensure they are all coming from the same color lot. You can then ship the dresses to the Bridesmaid or Best Man when you get them. I was in a wedding last year where two of the Bridesmaid or Best Man were out of state, the bride let the girls order the dresses themselves, at different times, from different DB locations. Everyone was warned that they might not all be the same color since the order wasn’t being placed together. She picked a blue color. To dresses were fine, but the other two were a different color because they came from a different color lot.

J. Crew has some really pretty bridesmaid dresses that match your specs, but if you have any bigger (or average!) ladies in your bridal party, they may not be an option (some of them only go up to size 16 or so.  🙁 ).

For instance, Heidi is very similar to what you’ve posted, and so is Louisa (the one I’ve been eyeing).  They also frequently have sales (30% off right now) and the dresses are actually silk instead of the poly found in most bridesmaid dresses.

Only problem is, I don’t think that all J. Crew stores stock their bridal line…I don’t think the store in Madison does.  That being said, the style of dress you’ve chosen is pretty universally flattering, so it should look pretty good on all of your ladies.  🙂
