Located just off the bustling retail and restaurant mecca of College Avenue in Berkeley, The Wedding Party is "the shop around the corner," tucked away in a charming second story 1920's loft. Specializing exclusively in bridesmaids apparel, the appointment studio offers an intimate, comfortable space where a bridal party can make themselves at home as they peruse an extensive and dazzling collection of sample dresses. Our collections are carefully chosen to appeal to the contemporary bride: savvy, hip, stylish…looking for a fresh and modern take on traditional attendants' attire. We encourage the bride to choose the dresses that reflect the unique style of her wedding, while providing each bridesmaid the opportunity to select a dress that suits her figure and her flair.
Our Designers Include:
Lynn Lugo features silk shantung, organza and charmeuse dresses in a sumptuous array of color. The platform of her collection is, "create your own bridesmaid dress," enabling the bride and bridesmaids to be innovative in their selections. She offers mix and match fabrics, add-on trims, flowers and sashes: Your imagination is the limit!

Nicole Miller. A principal of America's design elite for over twenty years, Nicole Miller bridesmaid dresses are elegant, romantic and ever wearable. An established classic, Nicole Miller continues to dazzle brides and bridesmaids alike.
These are a few highlights among the designers we represent; we are continuously updating our collections, researching trend and new talent, and incorporating new lines.
We are the liaison between these fabulous collections and the bride's big day. We assist the bride in choosing the look that fulfills her vision. Then we assist the bridesmaids, local or long distance, with their dress selections and the ordering process.
Our focus is customer service, tailored to each bride's personality and needs. She's looking for a custom color; we'll find it. She has bridesmaids living abroad; we'll send digital images via e-mail. We have the tools to make the ordering process easy and fun!
We look forward to working with you!
