When I was picking dresses I tried a few different things with my girls. One day I had everyone come to the shop and try dresses on. That was a disaster, some BMs were willing to try anything and everything and wear what I liked...others were more vocal about what they wanted. So I went back with just my MOH and her and I both tried on BM dresses together, we actually had a blast. We did that twice before I picked out one dress for everyone and I think everyone ultimately liked what I decided on. It's tough when you bring so many at once, because there are so many different opinions. 

A HUGE help was being able to take pictures and post them here!

What colors do you normally like?  Maybe if you list a few colors, perhaps some of us can you help give you inspiration for long or short dresses in several colors. 

Our main colors were purple and silver however we used different shades of purple and platinum for the reception...in addition we used pinks and blues as well in the bouquet...so sometimes you can narrow it down to a couple colors and use others as accents.

Do you have something specific in mind? Designer? style? Personally I have become a fan of the mixed/mismatch looks where you can do either shades of your color or mixed styes. Like this

 Honestly, that's the million dollar question!! How do we decide on anything while wedding planning when everything is so pretty in its own way!! 

I wish I had an answer lol. I just let the girls choose their own. There was one I loved but after having some try it on, it was not as good on an actual person! Nicolejuliettes suffestion is great! Keep trying until you find one you love :)
