What are the benefits of having a custom wedding gown made for you?

You get to see the full process of your dream wedding gown come to life at each of the fittings. Having a wedding gown custom designed is a truly exquisite and fun experience. Most importantly, a custom gown is unique, and reflects your individual style, expressing who you are.

Do you customize any other types of gowns, besides wedding gowns?

No. We only specialize in wedding gowns. Each custom wedding gown is made by hand from flat pattern to the finished gown in our Los Angeles bridal studio. We will also customize, restyle or update your Heirloom bridal gown.

What do I have to do to have a custom wedding gown made for me?

Call to schedule a complimentary consultation with the designer.

What can I expect during my appointments?

Expect fun, laughter, wedding tips from over 20 years of experience, and great conversation about your dream wedding dress. Prepare to be “de-stressed.”

How long does it take to make a wedding gown?

Each gown is made-to-order and usually takes between 3 to 6 months to make. The gown is completed 3 weeks prior to the wedding date. Most custom couture wedding gowns require hundreds of hours to complete.

How many fittings are included in the process?

A series of 4 fittings is expected until completion (without any major design changes.) Designing a wedding gown requires adjustments to the design, and fittings along the way to achieve a perfect, flawless fit.

What if I change my mind about the design I want?

Because creating a bridal gown is an evolutionary process, there is total flexibility in making changes to re-design as we go through the process.

What if I’m losing weight for my wedding day?

We take your weight loss into account by designing closer to the wedding date so that your wedding gown is a perfect fit on the day of the wedding.

Do you alter wedding gowns purchased in other stores?

Yes. We gladly alter pre-purchased gowns bought elsewhere. Grace Bridal Couture has over 20 years of expert couture alteration and fine tailoring experience.

How much does it cost to alter a ready-made wedding gown?

The cost varies based on the alteration needed since each wedding gown finish construction is different. We are unable to fairly quote you a price without seeing the construction of the gown.

Do you take out-of-state clients?

We serve clients worldwide. With technology available today, distance need not be an issue when having your dream gown made to your exact specifications.
