The only suggestion I can think of, since you’re looking for a specific time period style of dress versus your “standard” wedding styles would be to contact theater and ballet companies and see if they can refer you to a costume maker or seamstress that they use to create costumes. I’m sure the higher end theater/ballet companies have large, skilled costume departments that either maybe could take on an outside commission, or refer you to someone who would.

Maybe contact some museums that have Victorian era clothing pieces, and ask if they use a specific seamstress for any work they may need.

Try checking NYMag’s wedding’s section. They have a big vendor list and I’m sure it has some custom dress makers.

I have no suggestions but just curious…What happened to the Pnina you were so in love with, I thought you were going to get that for sure? Is it the cost that deterred you?

I wish I had gone the custom route but I couldn’t find anyone really good in LA within the short timeframe I had to pick a dress. Hope you have better luck!

I don’t know how willing you are to work with an online vendor, but bridesandjokers.com does period pieces.  I don’t want to lead you down a rabbit hole but dancesofvice.com does a lot of period dances and may be able to help you out.  hope this helps!

I just found the best custom wedding dress maker on Long Island.  Her business is called Solotu Bridal.  Her website does not do her justice!  She is the sweetest woman ever!
