I’m so overwhelmed by all this dress hunting. My body shape is so odd and I’m so big busted that I think I’d rather go the custom route. I met one designer nearby, but she’s only ever made 1 wedding dress and that makes me nervous.
I contacted others on Etsy, but they don’t live in the area.
There are a lot of seamstresses in New York, but I have no way of knowing how to find someone reliable. I’m trying to keep my dress budget to $700.

@satsuki: Hi Satsuki. Have you looked into Kimera Bridal in Brooklyn? That’s were I’m having my dress made. Like you I wanted a simple, beautiful dress and I thought that all of Yvonne’s dresses were wonderful. We mixed the top of one dress with the bottom of another to create just what I wanted. Also, she is completely affordable, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding a dress there within your budget. Good luck!

Where in Brooklyn are you located?
It depends on the design, my mother may be able to do it for $700.
She has made many wedding dresses over the years, and she is able to fit any body type perfectly.

@arroncarlton: Hi, can I send you pics of the dress I want to see if your mom can do it?
