We all know that because you are running out of time, the last thing that crosses your mind is finding the suitable bridesmaids’ apparel. But since they are playing a pivotal role in your wedding ceremony, you could at least tell them the characteristics you would like them to avoid and the principal points you would like them to accentuate on their gowns.

In that way, you will be a cool bride, because usually most of the spouses desire to verify thoroughly this process, thus preventing the bridesmaids to add a personal touch to their wedding dresses. Anyway, the desire to control and to make sure that everything is all right is not to blame, but still a bride should not transform herself into a freak control.
Therefore, if you will not be able to accompany your bridesmaids when they will purchase their apparel, you should specify whether you want or whether you do not prefer them to be identical. We are referring of course to their bridesmaids’ dresses.
Usually, most of the brides pick identical gowns, for a better wedding décor, but there are some cases in which bridesmaids wear different styles of gowns, mainly because of the desire to bring something new and unique at the wedding ceremony.
A very important issue is the money problem. However, if you do not depend on such thing as wedding budget, then I believe you will offer to pay your bridesmaids’ dresses, especially if you have many preferences and whims. On the other hand, if you have a strict amount of money meant to spend at your nuptials, then you should establish whether you will pay half of the sum, or whether the bridesmaids will cover the whole price. If it is the latter, then you should cut your preferences and you should let them decide what would be best for them, of course this option will have certain limits. But, if it is the former, in this case you may take the liberty of demanding certain things.
And the last detail that you will have to establish with your girls before allowing them to search for the suitable dress is the style of their dresses. For instance, they must know from the beginning whether they want a casual or a classic and elegant gown. Because otherwise they will look completely inappropriate for this occasion, in case they choose the wrong cut, style or length.
These being said, try to loose some of your responsibilities and trust your best friends, because they will surely find the right bridesmaids apparel.
