1. Choose a Date Most Can Attend-  It can be a bit tricky getting everyone together, especially of your bridesmaids live in different parts of the country. A great way to make the sure your girls can all come together is to choose a dress fitting around your bridal shower or bachelorette party. They will all be in town for that event so you can do a dress fitting a day before or after. This way they don't have to plan separate trips. 

2. Give Bridesmaids Gifts At Fitting-  This time is the best time to give your bridesmaids their gifts for all of there help. It is an intimate time where you don't have to worry about others like during the bachelorette party where other friends won't be getting a gift. 

3. Set Up A Cute Brunch Spread-  Having food available for your bridesmaids is always a great idea. Dress fittings can take a while and people might start to get hungry. Having finger sandwiches and drinks will keep things fun and not too formal. Choose foods that are easy to eat and wont' make a mess. 

4. Have A Color Palette Set-  By this time you should have an idea of what colors you are envisioning for your wedding. As well as an overall theme. This will guide the direction in which the dress fitting will go. Your bridesmaids can try on different silhouettes to see which look more flattering. 

5. Have Budget Communication-  Before the dress fitting occurs make sure you and your bridesmaids have discussed a budget they are comfortable with. Sometime this can seem a little taboo but it is very important. This will determine what stores you all will visit and what they feel comfortable in. 

6. Shop Early-   It's great to start shopping early but don't pick out the bridesmaids dresses before your own wedding dress. Bridesmaids dresses are meant to complement your wedding dress so once you have chosen your wedding dress then you can start the process. The latest you should start shopping for bridesmaids dresses is 3-4 months before the wedding.
