A.Cherie Couture made my New Year’s Eve wedding dress and I was so incredibly happy with my experience working with Ashley. I tried on >100 dresses and liked elements of several of them, but couldn’t find the one that had everything I was looking for. I started looking into custom dresses and came across A.Cherie on Etsy. I was somewhat hesitant to go the custom dress route because I wasn’t familiar with the process and didn’t know anyone who had done it before. Ashley had so much patience with all of my questions and took the time to answer everything (in a very timely manner!) until I was confident. This was before I paid for anything, so I think that speaks volumes about her professionalism and commitment. She was very thorough when doing the sketch and technical rendering of the dress to make sure every detail was what I wanted. After the dress went into production, there were times I got nervous because I doubted my vision, but I thought about how all of Ashley’s dresses turn out beautifully and knew I was in good hands. Sure enough, my dress was perfection and exactly what I had hoped it would be! Ashley also did 2 fittings for me as well as the bustle to get the fit exactly right since it was a form-fitting gown. While the process of having a custom dress designed is definitely a commitment, especially when all the other responsibilities involved with planning a wedding can be stressful, but Ashley made my experience as stress-free as possible. It was so special to have a custom dress made and I highly recommend A.Cherie Couture. Thank you, Ashley!
