Bit of both to be honest. Came across dress style by chance and suited both girls so went with that. I then picked a slightly different dress but girls were fine about it as it was same shape/style :wv

I just happened to come across a style that complimented my dress very well. I got all the BM's to try it on to see if they were happy with it. Luckily they all loved it and then they had a choice in colours and they all opted for the same colour. So it was a two way thing really.

Ideally both but at the end of the day you're the one who's paying! A compromise is the best bet, creates less problems if the bridesmaids are happy

Combination of the 2 - I saw some styles online that I asked the girls to try on. They tried others on too and we all agreed on one dress!

I've asked my BM to choose a dress in a particular colour and I'll pick the fabric too,but after that,she can have whatever she wants.

Do you think the girls actually loved the dresses,or just said they did coz you loved them?

I picked them! But I did email them a picture to see what they thought - obviously if they thought they were horrible I wouldnt have got them but they were lovely - I went ahead and ordered them as I could return them and get a refund if they werent right so I had nothing to lose!! They were perfect on them :lvs
