Gorgeous custom dresses!
I first heard about Grace + Ivory from a friend who told me about a popup they were doing at Ezra Paul in Washington DC in Feb. 2019. I was initially drawn in by the gorgeous, unique styles on their website and was impressed at the reasonable prices. I tried on three dresses and the quality of each was impressive (I had gone to several bridal appointments at that point in my search, and the quality was comparable to far more expensive dresses I had tried on at traditional bridal shops). Tina (the owner) was amazing and immediately puts you at ease with her friendly personality and attention to detail. Though I didn't purchase a dress from Grace + Ivory as I ended up falling in love with a dress of a different style elsewhere, it made for a very tough decision and was one of my top choices! However, I did end up being the winner of a drawing for a custom lace-edge veil, which turned out to be absolutely gorgeous with beautiful lace detailing at the edges, and I'm so excited to wear it! At a recent fitting, the seamstress was so impressed she even said that a veil of this quality could easily be $400-600 or more (much higher than the cost of the veil would have been!). So while I didn't find my dream dress there, I've been recommending Grace + Ivory to all of my engaged friends!Sent on 07/30/2019

My dream dress!
Having my wedding dress created by Grace & Ivory was one of the best decision I made while planning my special day! From the very beginning, Tina was amazingly helpful and supportive - she even allowed me to create my prefect dress by putting together the top and bottom of two separate dresses (specifically, I added the top of the Ava dress to the bottom of the Annette dress, and changed the layers of crinoline and tulle from blush to ivory). The end result was so high quality and luxurious looking, I plan to frame the dress and hang it on my wall someday. Most importantly, Tina made the process personalized, fun and simple - which is exactly what you want when you are in the midst of planning your wedding! I promise, you will not regret choosing Grace & Ivory for your perfectly customized wedding gown!Sent on 05/13/2019
