    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!

    The Cotton Bride--Amazing

    Love Chris and Fikre! Not only was my CUSTOM MADE dress gorgeous, but I enjoyed my experience with them. On my first visit, there was no time frame, they spent time with me to get to know me and had me try on every silhouette to see what worked best on me. They were super responsive when I wanted to make some last minute changes and just made me feel special and like me and my dress mattered. Couldn't be happier that I went with the Cotton Bride.

    I cannot begin to express my gratitude to Fikre & Chris at The Cotton Bride for all the special attention and guidance they gave to me in selection of my bridal gown. Given I am an older bride, I was very hesitant about whether I would find the right dress. Plus, it is was very important that my gown be comfortable so I could “dance the night away”. These two gentlemen made sure I tried on numerous options so that my final decision would best fit me & what I was looking for. Their concern for my happiness & needs were extraordinary - and I received SO many compliments about my beautiful gown!!!! They have now become a part of my extended family, & I look forward to visiting them in the near future. I have never received such personalized service & concern, and strongly urge you to visit them for your bridal/formal attire!!!!
