I have fallen in love, and it is with Lea-Ann Belter.
Yeah, she’s a little pricier, but I love that they design each dress to your exact measurements (so very few alterations are needed – plus, I suppose I am what is considered plus-size, so I don’t have to be like, “yes, I’ll take a size billion, please”) and I LOVE LOVE LOVE that all their dresses are created in this country!!
‘Avery’ is the dress I saw at the bridal shop’s open house, fell in love with, and tried on today.
It is $2,680 at the shop I visited, which is a lot of money for me, but honestly….. I love it. It’s pretty much perfect. It is nice and light, which is great b/c I am warm-blooded. I love the unique detail of the pleats. Plus they said they have only sold one or two of this dress so far, so it isn’t everywhere.
Did you get a Lea-Ann Belter dress? What did you think?

I ordered a Lea-Ann Belter dress (Mathia) and I completely agree with your assessment of her dresses: they were the lightest that I tried on and felt great since they are lined in silk. I could definitely tell the difference in construction between her dresses versus some other less-expensive ones that I tried on, even though I’m a clueless fashion n00b .
I bought mine at their flagship store- they took approximately 10 measurements and told me that it would only take about 4 months to make, since they’re made in Toronto.
The Avery is stunning and timeless – love the pleats, too. Great pick!

I have a Lea Ann Belter and I LOVE it! The style is “Mallory” and I got lucky finding it. It was a sample gown that has everything I wanted: Mermaid, lace, buttons down the back – and it was only $599, originally $4,000! My wedding isn’t until July so I can’t tell you what it was like to wear it all day, but I do recall when I tried it on that that material felt so much nicer and smoother than cheaper dresses. I can’t wait to wear it for our wedding!

These dresses are gorgeous, the salon where I bought my dress carries them, and I was eye-ing a a couple of them that I wanted to try, but didn’t let myself since they were way over budget! Love that she makes them to custom measurements though. I seriously lust over the Annabelle, Zara and Jemma!

I just bought “Tess” a couple of months ago and I can’t wait to get it and try it on. I got the sweetheart neckline with it, though. My grandma paid for the dress (or else I probably couldn’t have spent that much money).
