Words cannot describe my overall experience with Ashley and A. Cherie. It all started with her professionalism. I was favoriting wedding-related items on Etsy when I saw that I received a message from Ashley, introducing herself and her company that designs one-of-a-kind wedding gowns for brides all over the world. I had never thought about a custom made gown (too expensive, too many choices, etc)… but she seemed authentic so I set up a meeting. Ironically, her location not only was in the same city I live in, but only about 10 mins down the road! From there on, I knew it was fate. My first meeting was perfect – I could tell Ashley could pin-point exactly what I envisioned and she was so attentive to details. The entire process from then on went without a hitch. She is so creative and passionate about what she does, and also strives in every way to make sure the bride/client is happy. She uses many measurements in her designs to ensure a perfect fit, she thoroughly utilizes any pictures that you provide while also helping you create a unique one-of-a-kind design, and her sketches are spectacular! She uses top quality fabrics and accessories, her seamstresses are great, and she truly makes her sketches come to life right before your eyes. On top of all that, she is one of the sweetest human beings I have ever met and her personality is awesome – she could get along with anyone! My wedding was this past NYE and my dream dress had many aspects of a bunch of different dresses that I loved. It incorporated lace, rhinestones, beading, an overskirt, a big bow, and so much more so it was a lot. I brought in pictures to the initial meetings, but I’m also a very indecisive person and so throughout the process I would change my mind on a lot of things. Through all of that, Ashley was extremely flexible and no matter what always made sure I was happy. The end result of my gown made me speechless – it was exactly what I envisioned and was breathtaking in every way. I told her it was far better than the expensive designer gowns that I had loved for so long. To be able to have so much input in your wedding dress design, to be able to see the process happen step-by-step, to get exactly what you envisioned in the end, and to do all of this at an affordable cost – sounds too good to be true, but it’s not. I could not recommend A. Cherie enough!! Thank you so much Ashley, for everything!
