When it came time to choose bridesmaids dresses, I wanted all my girls to feel beautiful, comfortable, and like they could bust a move on the dance floor! On the hunt for a designer that offered many dress styles in our icy-blue color scheme, I stumbled upon Bari Jay, which offers a gorgeous Misty Blue hue. I knew we had to check them out in person.
My bridesmaids and I made an appointment at The Wedding Shoppe so they could pick their dresses. I only had two requirements: It had to be a long dress and be available in Bari Jay's Misty Blue. Other than that, the girls could choose whichever style they liked best. My bridesmaids all have different hair colors, skin tones, body shapes, and heights, so I knew it wouldn't be realistic for everyone to be happy with the same style of dress—or so I thought!
Everyone grabbed their favorite style. As soon as they paraded out of the dressing room, they all started gushing over how much they liked the dress my sister picked out—an elegant spaghetti strap with a chiffon overlay. The consultant we were working with pulled the same dress in a few more sizes so the other bridesmaids could try it on. Everyone fell in love with it! Despite how different all of my bridesmaids are, it looked drop-dead gorgeous on every one of them. It was like it was meant to be . . . the sisterhood of the traveling bridesmaids dress!
