Grace + Ivory specializes in beautiful, high-quality made-to-measure wedding dresses at accessible prices. A bridal brand unlike any other, Grace + Ivory allows newlyweds-to-be to try on garments from the comfort of their own homes. The collection of bridal gowns is carefully curated, and every design can be customized. Dresses are made-to-order with quality in mind, with fabrics like soft tulle, Italian crepe, Japanese mid-weight silk satin, and fine cotton lace. With hand-beaded, hand-sewn details, every dress is made-to-order and one-of-a-kind. This online atelier can deliver luxury couture items to couples across the United States of America.

As an online e-commerce bridal brand based in Chicago, they create beautiful, custom, made-to-measure wedding dresses for the modern bride. As a women-owned shop, they've partnered directly with their dressmaker, and cut out layers of distributors and retailers to offer gorgeous dresses without the mark-up (all of our designs are under $2,500). Grace + Ivory believes in doing bridal differently, and create their high-quality dresses in three to four months. Every dress is carefully sewn and lovingly made for a bride, focusing on proportions and possibly saving on alteration costs. As a social enterprise, and their mission is about women supporting women, and a portion of every dress purchase goes to programs helping women and girls in need. They're currently supporting Plan International’s The Girls' Fund, which has programs around the world focusing on eliminating child marriage, keeping girls in school, girls’ health, and women empowerment.

This trail-blazing company was founded by Tina Wong, who saw the lack of affordable, well-made gowns when she was planning her own nuptials. Her company offers a focus on providing exquisite dresses for every budget by using top-quality fabrics and collaborating directly with trained dressmakers. This results in a streamlined process for engaged couples who are busy planning their big day.

Grace + Ivory offers an effortless experience for newlyweds-to-be. After clients have purchased their dream dress, a bridal consultant will contact them to request their measurements, confirm custom details, and send a dress agreement for signature. Wedding dresses will then be made-to-order and made-to-measure, reducing alterations costs. They encourage couples to purchase their dress between 5-6 months in advance of their wedding, to ensure that their gowns arrive a few weeks ahead of the big day. A range of complementing accessories are available upon request to complete the look, such as sashes, belts, and veils, as well as custom-made gowns for mother of the bridal or groom.

Services Offered

    Wonderful experience

    I couldn’t have asked for a better experience than I had at Grace and Ivory! I was a very tentative bride who was incredibly nervous and hesitant about the shopping process. Not only did they ease my fears, but they made it one of the best experiences of my entire wedding process. I felt beautiful, seen, and cared about on a personal level from the moment I walked in through the purchase of my dress. I could not recommend them highly enough!!!

    Fantastic Experience, Highly Recommend!

    I couldn't be more happy with my Grace + Ivory experience! From the moment I walked into the store, the experience just felt different than all the other dress appointments I had throughout the Chicago area. It was personal, intimate, and really inviting.

    Tina (the founder) is fantastic to work with and ensured all the sizing was correct before finalizing the order. She clearly explained the process and how each dress is custom made based on multiple measurements. I had a slight tweak I wanted to make on the dress and veil and they were more than accommodating.

    Communication throughout the process has been fantastic and they always respond very quickly. I was kept up to date throughout the entire process which I really appreciated. As mentioned, the prices are very reasonable and it even includes a donation to a local Chicago charity which I really appreciated.

    I received the dress yesterday and it fits PERFECT, exactly how they explained it would! I couldn't be more grateful for having their wedding dress on my special day and have been recommending this place to everyone that is getting married.
