Something that has become quite popular, as far as bridesmaid dresses are concerned, is for the bride to pick the colour of the dress, while the bridesmaids will pick the style. This will relieve the bride from some of her many tasks and will make her bridesmaids feel great because their friend trusts their ability of picking a nice evening dress.

As you probably already know there are several possibilities that the brides could choose from. They could pick the same style and thus everything will look traditional and stylish. They will be matching bridesmaids and this will show beautifully in the wedding photos. Of course, that this solution must be discussed with the bride before purchasing the dresses, because she might want you to wear different frocks.
And this leads us to the second possibility. The bridesmaids could pick different styles of gowns. Every woman is different and as a result not all types of style would flatter all the bridesmaids. And since you want them all to look glamorous and because you want them to feel at their ease it is necessary to purchase different types of dresses. In this way, you will have the happiest bridesmaids ever, mainly because they didn’t have a bridezilla to order them around or to impose them a certain evening dress.
Something else that we should mention is the fact that the second option is a more modern one. A wedding where the bridesmaids will be wearing different types of wedding dresses is indeed something contemporary and still unique. Thus, choose something like this and you will have managed to obtain that one of a kind touch you have desired.
The great thing about this trend is the fact that it is fully understandable that the bridesmaids will be the ones who will cover for these prices. After all, since they will wear something that they prefer then they will definitely have to pay for this. If you want to be in control of something, besides the colour of the dress, you may also purchase their shoes or jewelleries. Thus, you will have offered them some great wedding gifts which they will surely appreciate.
