What Our Brides Are Saying

Not sure which dress is best for your body type?

You might have heard that you should “wear a dress that suits your body type,” but there’s really no such thing.

The truth is, you can wear any dress you’d like as long as it’s cut to your proportions! As designers, there are so many techniques we can use to help you look your best in any style, like helping you choose a certain neckline and adding the perfect style details in the perfect places.

"How can I prepare for my design consultation?"

Feel free to bring magazine photos, Pinterest board and any other inspiration you have! Alicia will sketch your gown as you’re visiting and help you choose design details like colors, laces and fabrics that fit your vision, body and style. This consultation is all about you and your vision—we’re here to bring it to life! This takes around 1 hour.
