Buy them.  But buy them big (easier to take in than to let out).  Your bridesmaids can buy them from you.  But you will have to eat the cost of alterations.

Don’t buy them, if they can’t even get back to you about the idea of them going to purchase them, you’ll never see your money

yeah, don’t buy them. that’s a little… overbearing. Like saying you don’t trust the girls. at least, that’s how I would feel if I were one of your maids.

if you’re really concerned about it, call them each, individually, and say “hey, the Bridesmaid or Best Man dresses for my wedding are on sale right now. I was going to order one for Maid/Matron of Honor, and can add yours to my order if you want me to save you the trouble. then you can get me the cash later. would that be helpful to you, or would you rather do it yourself?”

then you can get sizes too.

I agree with day dreamer, ask them if they want you to get it for them and then pay you back.  I know of people who have done it, and it actually made it easier for the bridesmaids.
