Hello, I have decided to go the custom-made dress route but I can find a wedding dress maker online (I’m new to the area). All I see are alteration shops….does anyone have any recommendations? I’m willing to drive to Dallas Houston San Antonio etc.

I don’t know how much you are wanting to spend, but this place does beautiful custom work.

Hey! i’m an Austin wedding vendor (I make cakes) and I can post on the Austin Vendor Facebook page for you to see if any other vendors have any recommendations for you. I do know that Ivana Krejci of Saint Isabel is great, I’ve worked with her and seen her dresses up close. She sells on Etsy, but she is based in Austin.

Try Silver Threads. It’s a one-woman shop and when she altered a bridesmaid dress for me, she was also making a few custom wedding dresses that looked gorgeous and intricate. She knows her stuff, for sure.
