I let all my bridesmaids pick whatever dress they wanted as long as it was in Truffle. Since they all have hugely different body types they really appreciated being able to pick out a dress that flattered them. They all had different dresses and they all looked great, and each of them picked a dress they really would wear again, (in fact, some already have)

I picked.  I narrowed it down to my three favorites, got their input and votes on those three and then picked one.  I prefer the matched look to different style dresses.

One of my bridesmaids picked the dresses for all of them. Thankfully of them love the dress.

I gave my girls a color and fabric and let them choose what they thought was most flattering for them.

i showed them some options and got their opinions. they wore the convertible dress that you could wear a hundred different ways, so it was also easy. 🙂

I let them all chose their own as long as it was the same color/fabric.  I sent them suggestions because there were so many options and they each ended up chosing one of my suggestions.  I was very clear they could go outside the ones I sent so I’m not sure it they really liked my suggestions, were too lazy to find anything else, or thought they had to pick one of my selections.  Whatever the reason, they looked beautiful.

I picked and asked for the BM’s approval. I found a dress that I think will work for all, and it’s the right price!

If they can all agree on the same one, my girls will all wear the same one. If not, they can be different dresses as long as they’re the same color, fabric, and length.

I picked the color, designer and fabric, then took the bridesmaids that live in my area shopping and we picked out three dresses (different necklines, shapes, etc.) for everyone to choose from. Everyone was thrilled that they could choose something that worked for them. The dresses just came in two weeks ago and they can’t wait to wear them!

I chose the color and designer, and they’re each choosing their own dresses. At first I thought I wanted to limit them to only chiffon, but I actually decided to let them go for whatever fabric they want too.

There was no way i could pick one dress and have them all wear the same thing. They’re all SO different in shape, size and style, and I didn’t want to dictate to them a dress that they would hate and look terrible in.

i chose,  and emailed all 4 girls a picture of it and crossed my fingers for positive replys……they loved the dresses and each one rang me to say what a great choice……phew!      if the girls had been paying i would have let them have more input, but i am buying them.  but that wasnt the reason i didnt go shopping with them,  its difficult to get them all together,  so i did the leg work and thankfully they loved my choice.

I started out picking a few dresses and then letting them pick their own but we went for my 1st dress fitting and one of my Bridesmaid or Best Man tired on a dress and I fell in LOVE with it.. So after showing them the dress they all agreed to it. They told me whatever I picked was fine but I wanted to make sure they like it as well.

I showed the girls the dress I liked the most and they all liked it too so I guess I technically picked it. If they didn’t like it I would let them pick.
