Happy Bride!

There would not be enough positive words to describe my experience at Cotton Bridal! From my first meeting with them to the text they sent us the morning of the wedding, the whole experience was amazing. I am a short, curvy gal who was having a 50’s romantic (think Sinatra) wedding and they embraced every element of that and my not-so-small personality. When I changed my mind and wanted sleeves, they did not blink and created a dress I am still in love with! I cannot recommend this shop enough and hope you will consider them! You will not regret it! FEEL FREE TO CONTCT ME!

Superb designer

What an amazing experience I just had getting my Wedding Gown from The Cotton Bride. When it comes to attention-to-detail, professionalism and talent, Chris exhibits all these qualities and more. Other than my fairytale-Wedding dress, Chris has designed several couture pieces for me, and each time I’m in one of them, I feel so grand and confident.
Chris is awesome at what he does. He is easy to work with and his attention to detail is legendary. I had a few ideas in my head for my gown, but Chris knew what suited me and made it all come together above and beyond my wildest expectations. Communication was super easy. He and Fikre are really patient, accommodating, and nothing is too much trouble. They were even able to work with me while even though I was in a different country for the most part! Chris is very professional and passionate about his work and finds so much joy in putting a smile on his clients’ faces. The Cotton Bride did me proud on my Wedding Day –the guests talked about my classic gown, saying it was straight from Downtown Abbey —- and all the compliments were mind blowing. Though I shouldn’t need another Wedding dress again (!), I will be returning to The Cotton Bride for another couture gown soon!
I highly recommend .

Amazing to work with!

I highly recommend The Cotton Bride!!!
I went not having a clear idea of what I wanted, but they were recommended by a friend who loved working with them.

My first visit, Fikre & Chris were so patient. We spent over 2 hours going through as many dresses as possible. They gave me honest, helpful opinions when I asked - but also worked really hard to help me figure out what I liked.

I picked a design that needed to be built up considerably for my wedding, and because they do custom, it was definitely more cost efficient than buying a dress and then paying for alterations.

Chris did a masterful job creating a dress that fit beautifully, and felt light & amazing on! He’s a perfectionist in all the best ways. And did I mention they easily did a quick turnaround- 3 months!

They are both genuinely kind & a pleasure to work with- I’m so glad I went only here! The whole process, which I was anxious about before, was easy & fun!

Will add photos after the wedding!
