After seeing a Bridesmaid or Best Man dress that is PERFECT on jillieb‘s post here, I’m in love with a Jenny Yoo dress. She’s a little expensive (but my mom EXTREMELY GRACIOUSLY has offered to pay for at least part of the girls’ dresses) and there are NO shops near me, so I have a couple of questions.
1) Have you ever ordered a bridesmaid’s dress online, and how’d it work?
2) Did you have all the girls order separately, or did you get all their measurements and order them yourself?
3) Are Jenny Yoo dresses relatively true to size?
Any or all stories/advice would be welcomed.

I ordered my Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses online through NetBride. I contacted them with the dress and style and they gave me a quote and when I was ready to order they sent me an order form in which to list the model number, company name, sizes, colors, etc. The dresses arrived in about 2 months, I had them all delivered to my house.
I order all of the dresses together. I had all of my girls come over one night and my grandmother, who was previously a seamstress, took all of the measurement and companred them to the sizing chart to determine which size to order to each girls. I then collected all of the checks and paid for them on one credit card.
I’m not sure about that particular brand but I’m sure you can find a measurement chart online.

I ordered from Perfect Bridal online. I ordered them all together (had them get measured and put them all on one credit card). However, Perfect Bridal does have a way where you can link orders so each bridesmaid can go online, pay with her own credit card, and they will put the order in together, but with everyone paying separately. So far, the customer service has been great. They called within 3 hours of me submitting the order to confirm sizes, style, and color (standard procedure apparently), I got an e-mail confirmation, they confirmed the shipping address, and then gave me a shipping estimate. They are not due in until late next month, but so far I have no complaints.

I ordered Dessy After Six dresses from http://www.bridesmaids.com and we ordered all of them together (saved on shipping).
They came exactly when the website said they would and looked great and all fit with minimal alterations. And it was WAY cheaper than ordering through a bridal salon (aka $135/dress instead of $186/dress)!
