Some considerations :

  • A sibling, a cousin or perhaps close friends.
  • Is their marital status a factor?
  • Their temperament.
  • How well they can get along with each other.
  • Allocation of duties and responsibilities.

Other issues to contemplate :

  • Design and colour of the bridesmaid dresses.
  • Is your preference for identical dresses or ones which are similar?
  • Purchase off-the-rack dresses or have them custom-made?
  • Who pays for the dresses?
