I had such an amazing, unique experience working with Modern Trousseau on my wedding gown. Going to New Haven for the fittings was such an incredible opportunity to see the kind of craftsmanship and design that goes into every single dress they produce. When i went for my muslin fitting for my Virginia gown, Ilma adjusted the cut of the top and back of the dress to better flatter my figure. Every time I went and saw the dress getting closer and closer to being complete the team was making small adjustments to ensure that the dress fit me perfectly. The final product was so beautiful, the lace on Modern Trosseau dresses is absolutely gorgeous, and the dress was so comfortable I didn't want to take it off at the end of the night.Sent on 10/05/2018
Ilma also helped to fit my mom for a corset for her dress, and even sewed in padding on one side to help her feel more comfortable and confident after breast cancer surgery. We had such a great experience with Modern Trousseau!

The best wedding dress!
I had a wonderful experience with Modern Trousseau! I originally hated wedding dress shopping and found the whole process stressful, but then I went here and started to really enjoy it. Their dresses are gorgeous and the level of customer service is amazing. I don’t even feel right calling it “customer service” - I was really made to feel like a friend more than a customer. The designer herself was there for my appointment, and she and my mom had a great time while we all sipped champagne. The entire process - from my first time going there to the final fitting - was so easy and fun. And most importantly - the dress was SO gorgeous. I still can’t get over it, and months later I’m still getting compliments. And it had pockets! I really couldn’t recommend Modern Trousseau more.Sent on 02/11/2019

Purchasing my wedding gown from Modern Trousseau was the best decision I could have made! From my first appointment with Emily in the NYC showroom to my last fitting appointment in Connecticut, everything was absolutely flawless! I visited the NYC showroom twice a few months apart and ended up choosing a dress that I had feel in love with during my first appointment. Emily was so sweet and made me feel so special. She never pressured me into a purchase or made me feel like I had to rush into a decision. When you get your dress from Modern Trousseau is it truly a custom couture gown! I am very petite and I had an extremely difficult time finding a dress that would fit correctly. Fear not, at Modern Trousseau’s muslin fitting the dress is literally created around you and directly to your proportions instead of simply ordering the closest standard size like typical bridal salons. Monika was my seamstress in Connecticut and she made the travel from NJ to my fittings absolutely worth it, she was brilliant! She made sure my dress fit perfectly, it was stunning! We also created a custom veil! Guests at the wedding could not stop talking about how beautiful the dress was!Sent on 07/19/2017
