Input from bridesmaids

Although I haven't formally asked my bridesmaids yet, I already have them picked out and I had a few etiquette questions.

First, a majority of my bridesmaids are out of town, so is it acceptable to communicate important information to them through email?  I thought this would be an easier way to contact them regarding planning for various things, but is it too impersonal?

Second, I want their input in choosing dresses and I'm wondering how to politely ask them about finances.  Should I ask how much they would like to spend on a dress or should I ask what is the most that they would be willing to spend?  Again, can this be done through email or would it be better with a phone call?

Thanks in advance for your wonderful advice!
