How about picking a store or designer (such as David’s Bridal or Alfred Angelo) and letting them pick a dress? That way they will all be the same color and length, but different style.

That’s what I did.

Maybe you can take your girls to a few places, and have them try on dresses to see what styles they like.  Then, once that is all nailed down, you’ll probably want to nail down a particular designer to ensure the color will be the same for all the dresses.  If you are thinking of cocktail length JCrew is always a great option and if you are on a budget Target actually has some great Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses!  I think it’s great that you want all your girls to feel comfortable!

I think that color and style is beautiful and makes it cohesive without being too busy or over bearing. I would say give them a length color and FABRIC. the fabric is important because it will look very miss matched if you have one in taffeta and one in satin. That way the style they are in is flattering to their body type…they get a say so they feel confident but there is a matching element in the color length and fabric. I also have a whole sleu of different body types. From my sister who is a size 16 and 5′ 3″ to my Bridesmaid or Best Man who is 5’9″ and a size 0. So this works really well for us.
