TESTIMONIALS & Reviews

“Ashley made a custom wedding dress for my wedding. She did a fantastic job from upfront communication, providing honest and accurate pricing, obtaining correct measurements, and coming up with a unique design that was totally custom to me! It was so neat I could show her many inspiration pictures and she came up with a design that incorporated a little of each picture that I showed her. I have never had a custom dress before, so I wasn’t sure of how the process was going to work or what to expect, but Ashley makes you feel comfortable throughout the process from start to finish. Everything came out perfect and I’m so glad I used A.Cherie for my dream wedding dress! She’s so professional and I will definitely be using this business again for a custom dress in the near future. Thanks again, Ashley!!!” Lindsey, San Antonio, Tx

“Every woman knows that the path to finding your perfect wedding dress is a long and tedious one, at least for most. I can easily say that I tried on 30+ wedding gowns before deciding to go with a custom design. I came across Ashley by chance and decided to follow my gut and contact her. She works with clients all over the world who sometimes she never meet but I decided to traveled back and forth from CA twice, once for measurements and the second time for a final fitting and my gown fit like a glove! In between, she was quick to respond to my e-mails and accommodate my design requests. Overall, Ashley was an absolute dream to work with. Her professionalism and love for what she does are truly inspiring. I received so many compliments on my gown! I only wish I could wear my custom wedding dress again! Thank you, Ashley!” Maria, Los Angeles, CA

“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!” Monique: Boerne, Texas

“I searched everywhere online and in stores for “The Dress” that I wanted. I couldn’t find anything close. Then I came across A.Cherie on Etsy and I loved the detail she put into those dresses. I sent her a message to inquire about how I could have a dress made. She responded immediately. Everything was just flowing so nicely and her making my dress was the most stress free part about my wedding planning. Ashley is so incredibly easy to work with and she makes you feel 100% comfortable during the whole process. She made my dream dress come to life and for that I will forever be thankful. I recommend her to anyone needing a dress for any occasion and I will be back in the future. I also want to mention I was located in Canada and she in Texas. It was still the smoothest experience.” Catherine A : Canada 

“Ashley brought my vision of the perfect flower girl dress to life! It is even more gorgeous than I could have imagined! She worked with me to ensure that I had everything exactly as I wanted, answered emails promptly, and always kept me in the loop about what was going on. She made the process so easy and fun! She was a pleasure to work with! Thanks again Ashley!” Biljana, Indianapolis

“As a bride who also works in the wedding industry, I knew I wanted a gown that was beyond unique and like nothing I see every weekend with my bridal clients. I had something very specific in mind and went to try on gowns at at least 5 shops… nothing was catching my eye and even scratching the itch of what I knew I wanted. I gave up gown shopping for a few months and then randomly decided to search on Etsy and various place for custom gowns! I was immediately intrigued by Acherie and contacted Ashley ASAP! She answered the phone and I was so pleasantly shocked as I was thinking I’d have to leave a voicemail and wait a few days for her to call me back. We chatted for about 20 or so minutes on the phone and I shared my ideas and overall wedding vision and text her pics of all of the different components I had in mind for my gown. Within a week, I opened my email and was so excited to open the sketch. I opened it and actually screamed with excitement because the sketch alone was EXACTLY WHAT I DREAMED OF! And it was just a black and white pencil sketch! I knew if I loved the sketch, I’d love the end result a million times more. Throughout the whole process Ashley was a dream to work with and we had a great time getting to know each other via email/text/phone. She picked out fabulous quality fabrics, lace and beads and made the process so exciting and easy. I received the gown 7 weeks prior to my big day and tried it on immediately and it fit amazingly well and was just breathtaking. On the wedding day, I felt like a true princess bride. My gown was the star of the show. Each guest was in awe of its uniqueness, sparkle, the color and so on…. I’m forever thankful for Ashley and her team for creating my gown. The feeling that I had walking down the aisle is something I’ll cherish forever and Acherie helped make the dream come true.” Bianca: Salinas, CA

“I have dreamed about my wedding since I was a little girl. When the day finally came, I knew exactly what I wanted for my custom wedding dress and who I wanted to work with. I knew I could trust A.Cherie to make me look beautiful and bring my dream dress to life. A dress that suits me the best, I have always wanted and that I designed in my own head. I put it all in her hands. She worked around my tight schedule so I could get my dream dress in time and Ashley always made me feel stress free; since we all know how stressful weddings can be. She designed and created my dress in a short time period of time and through out the process she always kept me updated  on how my dress was coming along.  The day I saw my dress finished, I never knew how beautiful a dress could be. Not only did she bring my idea to life; she went above and beyond. I could of have never imagined a dress as beautiful as my dress was. The day I walked down the aisle with my father to meet my future husband I couldn’t be more proud wearing A.Cherie. Standing next to my husband I never felt more beautiful in my custom wedding dress. Thank you Ashley and your team for allowing me to feel like such a beautiful woman standing next to my husband on my most special day. You are a talented young woman and I pray that you are blessed in the way you blessed me.” Corrie, San Antonio, Tx

“I am so overwhelmed by the beauty of my wedding dress. I knew I was taking a chance by ordering a dress without seeing it first, but when I saw all of Ashley’s work, I felt confident. When I was finally able to try it on, it was so much better than expected. First of all, it fit perfectly. Secondly, the detail and execution were exquisite. And thirdly, it’s the most stunning dress I’ve ever seen. The styling is jaw-dropping. Ashley always stayed in contact with me, answering any questions and concerns I might have had and timed everything perfectly for my big day! I have sent off her info to a few of my friends who are now in the market of a wedding gown. Ashley is one of a kind, a true professional, and a true artist. Don’t pass up your opportunity to get a gorgeous, couture, custom wedding dress!!” Emily, Dallas, Tx

“I was so nervous to order online but i knew i didn’t want anything in a store and all my fears were put to rest when i met ashley. She is so great and reassuring . She always kept our line of communication open and i trusted her judgment on the decisions she made. Ashley made me a beautiful blush wedding dress that i felt so beautiful and it only made my wedding day that much better!! I cant thank her enough!! Please go to a.cherie for your bridal needs!! You will not be disappointed!!” Andrea: West Chester, Pennsylvania

“Ashley was absolutely wonderful to work with! Every step in the process was so much fun and stress free, and she was able to make my dress dress come alive!! I could not have asked for a better woman to work with. She’s truly talented and has the ability to make any vision come to life!” Rebekah: San Antonio, Texas

“I highly recommend ACherie to design your next dress weather it be custom wedding dress, mother of the bride dress or mother of the groom! After looking at Mother’s of the Bride dresses at the bridal stores, I was disappointed since they were all so matronly & unflattering. So glad I found this designer who created my dream gown for my daughter’s wedding! She’s extremely easy to work with, & competent in every aspect of the design process. The quality of the fabrics we chose was amazing, & her design was definitely flattering for my body type. For my next custom designed gown, I will definitely go with ACherie again!” Valerie, San Antonio, Texas

“A. Cherie brought my vision to life and worked tirelessly to help me achieve what was in my brain. I work in the fashion industry and look and touch hundreds of gowns a week, so when looking for dresses at local stores and online I could never find anything I hadn’t already seen or that felt special to me. A.Cherie took what was in my head and brought it to life and was so patient with me when I was making sometimes impossible and outlandish requests. The owner is talented and helpful and wants to make your day special and the process smooth. And the price was incredible! Custom to exactly what I wanted and for a price better than most anything I was looking at. Highly recommend A.Cherie!!! The only thing I would suggest is to make sure you order your dress in plenty of time in case your weight fluctuates and the fit changes over time. Not the fault of A. Cherie, and I did receive my dress in time, but I was silly, and chose to not get my dress altered once I received it. I had lost some weight and the dress fit a bit big. No one noticed but me, and it was not a huge deal, I was just trying to hard to save time and money! All in all, wonderful experience with A. Cherie!” Meghan: Dallas, Texas

“I highly recommend A.Cherie to all brides looking for the perfect wedding dress. The owner Ashley has amazing designing talents, is very easy to work with, and her services are reasonably priced. I’m so happy to have found her. I can’t wait to show off my custom dress at my wedding.” Kim R: Boerne, Texas

“If I could give ashley 10 stars I would! She exceeded my expectations far beyond anything I could imagine. I tried on retail dresses and just didn’t feel comfortable splurging on something I didn’t absolutely love. Or for something that didn’t really fit. Ashley and I sat down and sketched my dress. She even offered little fun twists like Swiss dot fabric samples & allowed me to open my eyes to see what was possible beyond Pinterest. She was professional, timely, and gave me a gorgeous dress that I didn’t even realize was my dream dress when sketching it. She also is realistic and tells you up front what you can do based on your budget. The dress needed minimal adjustments because she measured me to the T and the dress ended up fitting like a glove! I can’t wait to wear my dress for my wedding. I have been recommending acherie to all my friends because she is THAT good. Can’t wait to share photos. She made me a dress that would literally be “me” if I were a dress. I could barely even catch my breath when I first saw it because she did so AMAZING on it. I Spent the same amount I would’ve at a retail shop and got one on one attention plus a dress that didn’t need $500+ of alterations. Thank you so much Ashley!!!” Lauren O, Texas

“In the bridal world, I’m an awkward size – too big for “normal sized” dresses and too small for “plus size” dresses. I absolutely hated trying on gowns as the samples were always either too small or too large – plus, nothing ever seemed right. After searching The Knot, I came across Ashley. From our initial email to me emailing pictures of my gown at the end – Ashley was nothing but professional, helpful, calm & collected, and frankly wonderful to work with. After providing her with several pictures, she sketched exactly what I wanted – when I found new fabric samples a few months down the road, she found a way to incorporate it. She provided ample time for assistance and was always a smiling face during each visit to her office. On top of her phenomenal customer service, her pricing was incredibly fair and saved the hassle of buying a dress one place, having it altered at another, and having to worry. My gown was gorgeous, my veil superb (even though it was an add-on)! I never once had to worry about my gown and felt beyond comfortable knowing Ashley was working on it. Custom gowns can be affordable and make your wedding day even MORE special, knowing you’re the only one who will EVER wear that gown. Hands down, A. Cherie Couture-Custom Wedding Dresses is THE place to get your wedding gown!” Hannah T : San Antonio, Texas

“I am beyond pleased with Ashley and A Cherie Couture. I searched high and low for the perfect wedding dress.. It was so difficult to picture myself in a dress from a designer or a bridal shop. I had seen so many like styles and it was hard searching for something that was just my own. From my initial interaction with Ashley, I felt at ease and I was so confident that she could make my visions come to life. I wanted simple, but stately..Modern but timeless. My wedding dress seemed just that and to me it was everything I dreamt of and more! ” Jessica:  Houston, Texas

“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!” Katherine: Houston, Texas

“I LOVED MY VEIL!!! It was my favorite part of my wedding attire. I was so lucky finding Ashley 2 months before my wedding. I started searching for a veil 8 months before that. I had the BHLDN painted floral veil in mind but was not willing to spend $500 for a veil. Other etsy shops didn’t have the floral lace I was looking for. Then comes Ashley & she was just AWESOME. She knew exactly the lace that would work & how I wanted it to look. Ashley updated me regularly on the progress of the veil & also to make sure I was happy with how it was turning out. The most impressive part is that she had to work through Hurricane Harvey! The veil is more beautifully made than most veils I saw in the stores that cost twice as much. Not meaning to be cliche but she will make your wedding dream come true.” Erika: California

“I wish I could get married again just so I could go through the entire dress creation process again! I had my dream dress in mind, and hundreds of hours online and several trips to bridal boutiques just did not provide exciting, perfect options! I was so lucky to find A. Cherie. Ashley took my ideas and created a fantastic design, helped me choose fabric and lace, and made fantastic suggestions to improve the final creation! When I walked in and saw my wedding gown, I immediately started tearing up — it was exactly what I wanted and more beautiful than I could have dreamed. Ashley was absolutely terrific to work with, very calm and patient with a first-time bride and and her mom — both of whom had lots of questions! The workmanship of the dress was outstanding. Having the dress custom made to my measurements meant minimal alterations — which definitely saved us money! In every possible way, it was a fantastic experience… I could not recommend A. Cherie more highly.”  Amy P, Texas

“After walking away from my appointment at BHLDN, I really felt like I was going to have to settle for a dress I didn’t absolutely LOVE. As I was walking away I received a message from A.Cherie telling me about her store, after checking out her work on IG and exchanging a few messages I decided the best option would be to get a custom dress made, she was able to work within my budget and sourced fabric that look identical to the picture I showed her of the dress I wanted. I received my dress recently and it’s absolutely perfect, it fits exactly as it should and the workmanship is stunning. I could not be happier, I was a little nervous not being able to try on a dress prior to purchasing, but she sends you a sheet for you to provide 28 of your measurements, just be sure to get the professionally taken. There was a lot of communication in between and she was always great about replying right away if I had any questions. I can’t wait to wear my dress on my wedding day!”  Citlaly: Sun Valley, California

“Working with Ashley was AMAZING… I went with my gut and put my wedding dress (the most important dress I’ll ever wear) in Ashley’s hands. Ashley gave me specific instructions on measurements… which lead to me not needing to get any alterations upon the completion of my dress. My wedding dress was everything I wanted and then some…. I understand it’s sketchy ordering a wedding dress offline…. but trust me… trust the process and you’ll be so happy to get your dream custom wedding dress without all of the extra expenses that bridal shops bring. Thank you Ashley… I certainly will be getting another gown made by you soon.” Ashley: Glassboro, NJ

“The dress is amazing, first. Second, communication was great from this vendor. I can not recommend highly enough.” Sadie: Santa Rosa, CA

“Ashley is exceptionally talented. I found her after a bad experience with another seamstress who dragged me along for months regarding my custom veil and did not deliver. By the time I decided I could not rely on the previous seamstress I had only a short time until the wedding and was discouraged and frustrated feeling that I would not be able to find my perfect veil in time. I began talking with Ashley about my vision and she worked extremely hard with me to create the veil of my dreams that was also within my budget. She demonstrated incredible patience, responsiveness.” Lauren: Newington, CT

“A.Cherie was a DREAM to work with. From start to finish, I knew I was in great hands. I made a few modifications to the design, and A.Cherie had no problem making them for me. I had the dress made to my measurements, and the fit was PERFECT! A.Cherie let me know there could be alterations needed, but it did not need any! The details are stunning which is was drew me to her work to begin with. The communication was great through out the process, and I feel honored to wear this exquisite dream dress. I did not think it would be possible to have something so beautiful for my wedding, but with A.Cherie it was! If I could give 10 stars I would. Thank you to the moon and back!” Lorana, New York
