About

On WeddingWire since 2017

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.

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 markup.

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.

Services Offered

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.

Beautiful Dress On a Mission

Grace and Ivory was absolutely amazing from start to finish. As someone who wanted to source ethical vendors and companies with a cause, Grace and Ivory's mission to contribution portions of sales to girls education initiatives immediately attracted me. Not to mention their dress selection was fantastic. I was able to try on 10 at home with my mom and aunts and ultimately decided on the Kali. Tina was so helpful offering customizations or changes and I ended up changing the skirt to an A-line type over the mermaid style. The detail and quality was very high and it came made to order. I used an outside vendor for alterations like bustles. The team at Grace and Ivory were super helpful along the way and I couldn't be happier with what I chose!

So glad this was my first shop!

Had an amazing first time bridal experience with Tina! Welcoming, knowledgeable, and patient, which was so appreciated by a bride who was still trying to articulate her vision. Very reasonable prices for high quality, beautiful dresses. Definitely recommend checking out her shop!
