What about a convertible dress? You pick the colour but the girls can wear their dress however they feel comfortable? I was reading a different thread about bridesmaid dresses and someone elae suggested them. If I do end up with a BP I think I will go this route.
I quickly googled it again and found this site

This is brilliant! I don't know how my Bridesmaids would like it, but it looks like a great idea!

@Lilian84 That looks pretty good, actually! I think either just choosing a colour for them, or getting them convertible dresses would both be good ideas.

@Maggietron Yes I think if they have all the same colour it looks nice and they can be comfy. I actually want to get a convertible dress for myself!

    Hi there. I'm getting married next month and I have 3 bridesmaids. I tried letting them choose their own dress and while they acted excited about the idea it turned out they dreaded the thought. I gave them plenty of inspirational photos of the color palette to stick to but no one was pulling the trigger on purchasing a dress. I ended up finding something for them to wear. Instead of a dress I chose a mint pencil skirt and white blouse. Everyone has just finally received all of their attire. Cutting it close! While I was trying to be easygoing and let them find something they loved, it ended up being so stressful for everyone involved. The convertible dress sounds like a good idea! Then they can wear it how they choose. You can also have your friends go to a tailor and get themselves measured so that you can use their measurements to order a dress for them since they are all so far away. :)

    It worked for my Maid of Honor and Bridesmaids. I told them I wanted Turquoise, Chiffon and Knee length.  They were all different and the colours were all a shade different. Two were ordered online from China and the third one was bought on sale. They looked beautiful and they were happy with their choice and so was I.

    I think it depends on your BMs. I went shopping with my girls but I only picked the color. I barely said anything while they were there. They tried on 5 dresses and all agreed on one (which I ended up loving). I did not want to stress them out but yet I want them to feel comfortable. I have let them decide on their own hair styles and they are freaking out lol.

    My advice- is give them a direction.
    Good Luck :)
