Ashley and Karen are a dream to work with. I did not have a custom made dress but they altered a dress I bought (Grace loves lace) and they did an excellent job of making this dress fit the way it was supposed to look. It was gorgeous. I couldn’t be happier! I would HIGHLY recommend this team for a custom made dress or alterations of any gown!

A Cherie was wonderful to work with and I would highly recommend them for a custom dress. Ashley was able to perfectly capture my vision for the dress on the first sketch and Karen made that sketch a reality even better than I could imagine. Karen did a great job with the beading and alterations (only needed because I lost a good bit of weight after the initial measurements). The bustle was also the best I've ever seen. The points were incorporated into the flowers of the lace so it hid nicely, but when bustled all the lace on the train was on display in beautiful (and secure) folds. Karen made sure to teach my MOH how to bustle it properly and even videoed it so we could recreate it on the big day. Ashley and Karen were so kind throughout the whole process and I couldn't imagine a better product.

Great communication and awesome customer service from everyone. My dress fit like a glove. Ladies, if you are hesitant to getting professional alterations of an off-the-rack dress that somewhat fits, the investment is absolutely worth it. I enjoyed my visits with Karen and her work is amazing.

Karen is the best! She made my dream dress come to life. Reasonable prices, fabulous work, and excellent service. Don’t trust anyone else with your alterations.

THE BEST DECISION! I had a very poor wedding dress shopping experience and was very worried about dress alterations and additional customizations. I miraculously learned about A. Cherie Couture through a comment on a wedding Facebook group and had a wonderful overall experience. From the first online consultation to my first appointment to the final send off, I felt very comforted by their professionalism! The team is very knowledgeable and patient; they welcomed all questions, explained things thoroughly and did a great job with my dress! My in-person appointments were with Karen, and she was so kind and skilled! I only wish I had found them sooner so that they could’ve made me a custom gown. I 100% recommend this team to any bride. Also, I had to drive in from out of town for my appointments, and it was worth every mile.

Karen and Ashley are absolutely phenomenal. They were so kind, flexible, and really listened to me and my vision for the dress. I would recommend them to anyone. They helped me with my dress and helped my maid of honor with hers!!

Ashley was very helpful talking to me before my appointment on what they offer and how they could help me. Karen I’d absolutely amazing. I had weight loss surgery and my dress had to come in 1-3 sizes and she had made it to perfection. Super helpful telling me what was required and what I could avoid to save money. I have never had such a great experience, they also worked with on cost so I could get everything I needed done while still protecting themselves. If you want a great fair priced alterations on your dress or any custom dress this is the place to go! I’m not adding photos of my dress yet because my wedding hasn’t happened yet however I will post pictures after! I’m still in shock at what she accomplished in only 1 week!!!!!

“A.Cherie Couture made my custom wedding dress for my wedding. I was trying to choose a custom dressmaker near me and I found out that A.Cherie Couture works with clients worldwide. They 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! The process was something I will never forget and made my wedding day extra special. 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 A.Cherie Couture makes you feel SO comfortable throughout the process from start to finish and helps guide you through every decision. My custom wedding dress and custom veil came out perfect. I’m so glad I used A.Cherie Couture to create my custom designs! They are so professional and I will definitely be using this business again for a custom dress in the near future as well as my alterations. They are fit experts and offer the highest attention to detail. Thanks again to the BEST CUSTOM DRESSMAKERS, A.Cherie Couture!!!”  Lindsey, Texas

“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 A.Cherie Couture by chance and decided to follow my gut and contact them. They work with clients all over the world who sometimes they 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, Ashley was quick to respond to my e-mails and accommodate my design requests. Overall, A.Cherie Couture was an absolute dream to work with. Their professionalism and love for what they do is truly inspiring. I received so many compliments on my gown! I only wish I could wear my custom wedding dress again! Thank you, Ashley and Team!”  Maria, California

“Words cannot describe my overall experience with Ashley and A. Cherie Couture. 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 and team, for everything!” Monique, 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 Couture and I loved the detail she put into those dresses.  A.Cherie Couture’s process ran so smoothly and  making my dress was the most stress free part about my wedding planning!  A.Cherie Couture is so incredibly easy to work with and they make you feel 100% comfortable during the whole process. A.Cherie Couture made my dream dress come to life and for that I will forever be thankful. I recommend them to anyone needing a dress for any occasion and I will be back in the future all the way from Canada. I also want to mention I was located in Canada and she in Texas. It was still the smoothest experience.” Catherine, Canada 

“My wedding dress was exactly what I envisioned it would be! I had ideas that I wanted to take from a few different dresses and Ashley put it all together to give me my dream dress! She was super friendly and attentive, also the pricing was not bad at all for it being a custom dress. I definitely recommend getting a custom dress from A.Cherie Couture. It was an exciting process because you can only imagine what your dress will look like, and when you finally see it, it is perfect!” Giselle, New Mexico

“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 for custom gowns! I was immediately intrigued by ACherie ASAP! Ashley 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!! I knew if I loved the sketch, I’d love the end result a million times more. Throughout the whole process The A.Cherie Team 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 A.Cherie helped make the dream come true.” Bianca, California

“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, Texas

“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, Texas

The A.Cherie team was a dream to work with! I was a little nervous having my dress made so far away and without meeting with them in person, being that I live in Alaska. But my dress couldn’t have turned out more perfect. When I went for my final fitting and finally saw my dress it was everything that I had wanted and more! They worked in every detail that I wanted the dress to have! I worked with them to design my custom dress online. I highly recommend working with the A.Cherie team even if you aren’t in the Texas area. They make the process so easy. I was in constant contact with Ashley during the process which made it super stress-free. I Would definitely work with them again!” Briana, Alaska

“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, Texas

“I highly recommend A.Cherie to design your next dress whether it be a 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 A.Cherie again!” Valerie, Texas

“I LOVE A.CHERIE COUTURE!! They were absolutely fabulous to work with, from start to finish! Let’s just say, I am extremely particular in what I like and I am not the easiest to work with BUT these ladies were so fun to work with!!! I work in the industry and They exceeded my expectations and made my DREAM DRESS come to life!! I really don’t know how they do it, they are AMAZING and I recommend anyone who has been searching for “the dress” but cannot find it or just want something unique. DO NOT SETTLE and choose CUSTOM!! A.CHERIE will not disappoint!!” Alissa, Texas

“There aren’t enough words to express my gratitude for A.Cherie Couture! The ultimate trustworthy and talented team. They are committed to making every dress so unbelievably special for each of their brides. I was so indecisive, yet extremely particular about my dress, and Ashley, their lead designer, was SO patient, knowledgeable and determined to make my vision come to life. My wedding dress and veil were an absolute dream. Just when I thought my experience couldn’t get any better, A.Cherie Couture took on the last minute task of creating a stunning suit for my rehearsal dinner. These woman are amazing and I would 1000% recommend them to local and non-local clients!!!!”

Rachel, Texas

“If I could give A.Cherie 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 A.Cherie to all my friends because they are 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 A.Cherie Couture 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 A.Cherie!!!” Lauren, 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, 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 knew I had wanted to work with a custom dress designer and design my wedding dress! 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. An amazing team of talented dressmakers, I told them I wanted simple, but stately..Modern but timeless. My custom 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 and journey as a custom dressmaker, 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 30 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 searched “Custom dressmaker” and found A.Cherie Couture! 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
