Stunning, custom fitted, and on schedule! Convertible gown with overskirt
DO NOT BE SCARED TO ORDER ONLINE WITH THIS TAILOR! You can get a custom-fitted American made dress that is exactly what you want and half the price of what you buy in a brick and mortar store. I'm like a size 6-8 up top for my chest, but with thick arms, and a size 14 on the bottom. Dress shopping in stores was a nightmare. I wanted a certain amount of pouf but I couldn't spend more than 2 grand. Brides & Tailor provided me with a knee-length ballgown with just the right pouf, customized to my size, with a jacket (not pictured yet), a drop veil, a removable belt (so I can put it on the gown or on the overskirt, whatever's out), and an overskirt beyond floor-length for that dramatic look. I sent her pictures of what I loved on the internet from multiple designs and she put it all together. It's a dream and with the lace-up/corset style back I'll be able to wear the short version again and again! It was so freezing I wore a faux fur jacket out instead but will be showing off the jacket she made and my shorter dress for the family reunion!Sent on 03/27/2020
Brides & Tailor's reply:Thank you so much for your wonderful words Erin! You were such a gorgeous bride, and one of our fave customers! Stay Blessed!:)

The BEST Custom Experience Ever!
A few months ago, I fell head over heels for a dress that was no longer being made - after searching and searching for other similar options, I decided that I would never get the dress out of my mind and that I needed it to be custom made...that's when I came across Brides & Tailor...and let me tell you, it was by far the best custom experience I've ever had. I was assured that the dress would be made on time (and in fact, it came early!) and that they would do everything in their power to create something beautiful...and wow, is it beautiful! Working with Manal was a breeze and her communication was out of this world. The dress fits like a glove and the details are exquisite. I could not recommend Brides & Tailor enough!Sent on 04/06/2020
Brides & Tailor's reply:Thank you so much Alison! What a beautiful photo:) Love that! It's been a pleasure working with you and I am so so excited to see how gorgeous you're gonna look in it!

It was a pleasure from start to finish to work with Manal on designing my dream dress! I had sent her 3 separate dresses and asked her to combine them all into my dream dress.. but in black! I never had luck finding a black dress that looked bridal... until I met Manal! She put together exactly what I was imagining in my head and it’s made perfectly! She was super sweet, helpful, and very responsive. She made the fear of ordering a wedding dress online completely disappear. The turnaround was insanely fast as well. Prices were extremely reasonable given you’re getting a handmade, one of a kind custom dress. I couldn’t be happier with the quality of the customer service and dress I received. I will definitely be recommending Brides and Tailor to everyone looking for a wedding dress!Sent on 08/05/2020
Brides & Tailor's reply:Thank you so much for your lovely testimonial Brynne! It has been a pleasure working with you to create your unique custom gown. Can't wait to see photos from your big day!

The entire experience from design to dress delivery was amazing! She really captured my vision on paper and made it come to life! She is very responsive to communication and patient with her customers. Even during the pandemic she was very accommodating with meeting for fittings as well as future fittings (Since my wedding date is postponed due to Covid). Any one looking for a custom wedding or formal dress, Brides and Tailor is the spot!Sent on 08/18/2020

Alicia Richardson · Getting married on 08/06/2021
After trying on countless wedding gowns, I knew what I wanted just did not exist and that I needed to design my own gown if I wanted to be truly satisfied. I started working with Manal on my dream wedding gown about a year ago. I was a little apprehensive about having a gown made from states away from me but Manal ensured me I would be a part of the process every step of the way, and I was!Sent on 01/27/2020
Manal was patient, knowledgeable and accommodating. She helped my dream wedding gown become a reality. From Sketch to shipping the process was nothing short of perfect. I can't wait to wear my gown on my big day. I just know it will blow people away.
The gown is more beautiful than I could've ever imagined. It would be difficult if not impossible to find better quality or value than Brides & Tailor.
Brides & Tailor's reply:Thank you so much Alicia! It was our pleasure to work along with your ideas and vision to bring your Dream Gown into life:)Can't wait to see your photos from your big day!

Wonderful Experience with Brides & Tailor
The service provided by Manal was profesional and fun. She made me feel comfortable through the process from taking the measurements, answering my questions in a timely manner, and making sure the dress was exactly what I wanted. The dress is beautiful and exactly the dress that I chose. I wanted to look beautiful as the mother of the bride, as this day is extremely important to me. Manal has made my wish and dream come true. It is an honor to wear this beautiful dress on my daughter's wedding day. Thank you!Sent on 12/17/2019

Review for Dress
Working with Manal and her team was one of the best decisions I could have made! My dress is absolutely stunning and was very reasonably priced. I'm so excited to wear it on my wedding day! Also, I wanted to note that any changes I requested to the gown were done within 24 hoursSent on 12/18/2019

Aseel Hussein · Getting married on 03/28/2021
I reached out to Brides & Tailor to get a quote for what my dream dress would cost with them. I was surprised at how affordable the quote was, considering I wanted a ball gown with lots of beading/sequens on the corset and sleeves. After looking at all the other great reviews, I decided to give it a go, and I didn't regret it one bit. Manal was very responsive. She responded to all my emails within a few hours. My dress came in the mail a few days ago, and I LOVED IT. The fabric didn't feel cheap at all, and she was able to replicate what I wanted in a dress. It even came with a detachable petticoat so I could make the dress "poofier" if I wanted to, which I really appreciated. I also ordered my veil from them so it could match my dress. The only thing I would warn you about going into this is being absolutely sure of what you want in a dress. I got my dress about 2 months after I made my down payment, so they obviously work on it very quickly and there isn't much room to change your mind once things get going. I definitely recommend getting your wedding dress from Brides & Tailor!!Sent on 07/16/2020

Custom Wedding Dress made of DREAMS!
Manal and her team did such a FABULOUS job creating my custom wedding dress and made the entire experience so painstakingly easy!! I was supposed to get married on Halloween (Covid ruining everything), so I didn’t want a traditional white dress and let me tell you it was SO difficult finding a dress I almost gave up the idea of the non-traditional route. But then I found my saving grace, Manal thank you so so much! She paid attention to all the little details I asked for, gave me so many options of fabric colors, lace appliqués, beadings, etc! Also they made me a matching veil for FREE!! Such a sweet little surprise and you can’t beat that for the price! If you are having trouble finding THE dress, look no further and create your own beautiful gown 💕Sent on 07/17/2020

Well above expectations
I don’t even know where to begin! All around amazing. The dress is EXACTLY all I could have ever expected and wanted. Great quality. The seller emailed me every step of the way to make sure everything was right. Communication was great and I am thrilled with my purchase. They also created a veil for me which I equally have good things to say about. Can’t go wrong. And highly recommend!!Sent on 08/18/2020

Dream gothic princess dress!
Being a goth punk, finding a dress was a struggle. Being curvy made it even harder. I definitely like to be unique, so I wanted something no one else had. I started searching on Etsy and found Brides & Tailors. They incorporated the 3 dresses I loved into one. When I first tried it on, my fiancé had to make me take it off. The fit was perfect, needing absolutely no alterations. It's the perfect dress for my dream wedding.Sent on 05/25/2020

Custom Wedding Dress Sketch
Working with Brides & Tailor to customize a sketch of my bridal gown has been an absolute pleasure. From start to finish Manal has been kind and patient with me and my ever changing mind. She was able to take elements from 3 different dresses to create a beautiful one of a kind dress. Delivery of the sketch was quick and she even double checked that it was exactly what I wanted before making final edits. I can not wait to get the process started and begin seeing the beautiful design come to life.Sent on 07/14/2019

Makes amazing dresses!
Manal and her team are amazing. I was initially worried about getting a custom dress without them measuring me because I have problems with conventional dresses fitting well. However, it worked out perfectly. They added a lot of little touches to my dress and it ended up amazing. I can’t wait to wear it soon and show it to everyone!Sent on 08/08/2020

My experience with manal-Sent on 10/20/2019
- [x] When i first met/talked with manal I had so many questions and she answered all of them. I was so scared that the dress I had in mind wouldn’t turn out how I wanted or that it may be turn out beautiful- just not on me. I decided to shop around and try on dresses at boutiques. The dresses were way too expensive and if I didn’t like a part of a dress or if I wanted to add something they would say “this is the design of the dress”. I even went to someone who customizes dresses however she would answer me weeks after I messaged her and when I went her fabric felt and looked very cheap. That is when I decided to go back to manal and let me tell you it was the best decision I have made. Manal is so patient and loves what she does, she became a friend to me and helped me create my dream dress. I sent her videos and pictures of how I wanted my gown. The picture I had in mind came true. My wedding dress is everything I have ever wanted and so much more. The material, the puffiness, the lace, the beading, everything was absolutely beautiful.
Brides & Tailor's reply:Thank you so much Hawraa! It has been a pleasure working with you! You totally rocked your dress on your big day!!!:)))

Caroline Peters · Married on 08/03/2019
My wedding is coming up in a month, and for around 5 months, I was very stressed out about finding a dress that I like in my size. As a plus size bride, all the dresses I tried on were dull and old-fashioned. But I found Brides and Tailor on Instagram, and they had a lot of pictures featuring dresses for bigger women, so I booked a bridal appointment with Manal! I was very impressed when they were able to sketch, design and tailor my dream wedding dress! I recommend!Sent on 07/09/2019
Brides & Tailor's reply:Ohhhh thank you so much Caroline! I cannot wait to see photos of your big day! You'll be the queen of the show! Thank you for trusting Brides & Tailor!

Very understanding and made sure that everything was absolutely perfect from day one! I sent her a picture of the dress that I wanted, but we worked together on different details to make it perfect and unique to me! She also went above and beyond by showing me everything step by step to make sure I loved every detail. The whole experience was amazing. Thank you so much for everything Manal!Sent on 04/19/2019
