WHAT WE DO

Indie Designers with Heart and Character

The Handmade Bride works with independent designers who put their heart and soul into each design, and wouldn’t have it any other way. They are true artists who create original gowns with a story behind each one.

We Listen and We Make it Happen

Our clients love how they actually feel heard at The Handmade Bride. We guide you through our selection of curated designs and consult on the fit, flattery and style. So much is possible with a full line of customizable dresses.

Curated Collections of Modern Handmade Gowns

The selection of gowns at The Handmade Bride combines elements of the unexpected and understated beauty. We host a number of sample gowns in the boutique. Brides can order the original design made-to-measure for them or customize it to create a truly one-of-a-kind dress.

Customiziation and Alterations

Customization is not a problem; it’s our process. Whether it’s a gown from our racks, a completely new creation, your dress from another store or a vintage masterpiece we are obsessed with making your dress the perfect fit.
