You get a Custom, and you get a Custom!

I don't know that Wedding Wire will give me enough words for me to say all the great things about the team at Vanya Designs.

I came to Alicia with a very specific vision in mind for my wedding dress. I wanted celestial inspired, I wanted color, and I wanted to throw a nod in for my husband and I's love for Dungeons and Dragons. Alicia took a chop shop of very off the wall ideas and made the most stunning dress. Even in the earliest stages when it was just a slip with fabric layered over to figure out what we wanted I nearly cried because her vision was exactly what I dreamed of.
Vanya's also custom made my husband's suit, and he's so in love he'll be back anytime he needs a suit because they took such good care of him.
I'll let the photos speak for themselves on just how amazing the team's work is (Thanks Darrin Hackney)!

Magical Transformation

Alicia at Vanya’s Designs took my vision for renovating my mothers wedding dress and made it a reality. The full-on 80’s A-line (complete with poofy sleeves) became an elegant illusion-sleeve mermaid gown that looked like it could’ve been fresh a designers newest line. I got the best of both worlds with Vanya’s designs - the thrill of wearing my dream dress and all the sentiment of wearing my mom’s

Amazing service at incredibly reasonable prices.

Vanya altered and customized my David’s Bridal wedding gown so that it really felt like my own. Had I known how reasonable having them custom make a dress would be, I honestly would have done just that. Everything was super affordable, and I even had a custom dusty blue robe made for my getting ready photos. I cannot recommend the ladies at Vanya enough. You will not regret working with them.

For getting bra cups added to my gown, having a slit added to the dress, having extra bustling added, and a couple other minor things, I paid less than it cost me to have a bridesmaid dress altered at David’s Bridal for a friends wedding.
