this is my first post here! I am not the ‘off the rack’ type of gal, and I am interested in hiring a custom dress maker. I just got engaged and I have no idea how all this wedding stuff works.
Does anyone know any independent dress makers? Is it more affordable to have something custom made? I would rather work with one person, not a company…ny ideas?

Depends on what you want; sometimes it’s more cost effective to just buy an inexpensive dress that fits what you want, or you can add to it. You can try Susan Ruddie of The Wedding Dresser – she does alterations and some pieces, and has made costumes for shows/plays, etc., but not sure what that would cost. GL.

Hi there – my friend had a beautiful custom made dress. It was made by a woman on the LES at Adrienne’s. Check out this post http://nymag.com/weddings/listings/gowns/. NY Mag Weddings will be your best friend.
