Lori is an absolute genius! I knew early in my planning process that I wanted to have a custom-made dress. A mutual friend connected us and Lori was enthusiastic, jumping into the project, headfirst. We had several meetings early on so that we were both on the same page, and I provided her with pictures of the dress that I was trying to recreate.Sent on 11/13/2015
I felt very strongly against buying a wedding dress from a bridal shop. I am “plus-sized”, and dreaded being binder-clipped into dress samples many sizes too small for me. Intellectually I know there are places that have lots of bigger options, but I just couldn’t face the prospect of any disheartening bridal shop experiences.
I also felt strongly against buying a very expensive dress that I would wear once and put in storage. The implications for sweatshop labor and environmentally harmful chemical fabric processing gave me panic attacks. I wanted to know that my dress was eco-conscious and made here in the U.S. Lori’s re-use of gently worn wedding dresses was a dream come true. The dresses that became my dress had been worn and loved by at least one other bride, and any environmental damage had already been done. I was getting a lot of good karma from those dresses!
I had Lori take my measurements, personally, and had 3 fittings along the way. I was a “nervous” bride and worried about everything. Lori put my mind at ease at every turn and checked in as soon as any questions arose so that she knew I was getting exactly what I wanted. She went far above and beyond my expectations and created the most elaborate and well-made dress that I could have ever hoped for.
The final product was absolutely stunning! For anyone looking to have an absolute one-of-a-kind dress for their wedding, I cannot recommend Lori and Conscious Elegance highly enough. The process was so smooth and the final product so gorgeous; it fit me perfectly and it was exactly what I was dreaming of for my wedding.

FABRIC IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! I KNOW MY AUNT IS GOING TO LOVE HER WEDDING DRESS - FOR BOTH ITS QUALITY, BEAUTY, AND ECO-CONSCIOUS STANCE. - Jennifer B.Sent on 12/02/2014
Lori is amazing! Her attitude is refreshing, her expertise is impressive, and her dresses are heavenly. Her commitment to the earth is strong. I wore a Conscious Elegance dress at my own wedding, and it was exactly right for me.
