When dressing your wedding party, you must decide if you want to be traditional or if you are trendy. Personally, we love the look of a traditional bridal party. Everyone in the same dress in the same color. Traditional Bridesmaids companies like Bari Jay can make this possible as we offer maternity styles, jr bridesmaids styles, extra length or petite length and customizations that make your wedding unique to you and allow for your entire bridal party to be dressed and comfortable size 1-26W, shorter or taller, pregnant etc. We have been doing this for over 50 years!
