I am 6'1" tall and I tried on gowns at several bridal shops. To ensure a beautiful fit a consultant at each store told me they could "add length" to the bottom of most dresses. But, I needed them to drop the shoulder to drop the bust, drop the waist AND lengthen the dress to fit my body perfectly. At Avenia I met Nancy and she knew that all of those things needed to be done to have a perfect fit. I ended up having a custom gown made and it was finished in 7 weeks without a rush and was ready two months before my January wedding! Nancy was lovely to work with and her staff was professional - worth every penny!!

Nancy made my perfect dress and was extremely helpful, friendly and hard working! I would recommend her to anyone looking to have their wedding dress made.

I absolutely love Avenia Bridal. Such a pleasure to work with them. I purchased my accessories from them and tried on dresses as well. Their staff truly cares about helping you and making you feel comfortable. They carry many great designers and have a very classy salon. I was blown away with their follow up and professionalism. They can make custom gowns as well as full alterations for gowns bought in-house. I wish I was working there and I wish I hadn't gotten my gown elsewhere. The only reason was to trim my budget. Go check them
Out as soon as you get engaged. You will not regret it.

I really enjoyed this bridal shop. I had the top of my dress remade here and it turned out wonderfully. People still comment on how beautiful it was and I was beyond satisfied! They ended up working on it longer than they quoted me, but still only charged me the quoted price. The only drawback I had was there was a day delay as during the sewing process, some blood got on the dress from a pin prick. This wasnt a problem though, as they fixed the problem quickly and free of charge. I would definitely recommend it!

I actually live in Miami, FL and had a bad experience (highly overpriced, petty salesperson territorialism, lack of help, writing down the wrong gown and then not being able to find the correct one, etc.) with the bridal store on Miracle Mile in Coral Gables where I found my gown. After searching online, I found that Avenia Bridal in Utah carried the dress. Lisa and her staff were WONDERFUL to work with - really knowledgeable and helpful - and so I ordered my gown through her. Even though I ordered it from thousands of miles away and even had to do some customization over the phone, I felt much more confident with Avenia than I did with the store in Miami. My dress was the perfect size and length, and it was gorgeous :) I highly, highly recommend you call Lisa at Avenia, regardless of where you live. She was with me each step of the way, and it was a wonderful experience.

I had the best experience finding my dream gown at Avenia Bridal. They made me feel like a princess. They were receptive to my feedback and patient with me as I tried on dress after dress. I found many unique and beautiful dresses there, and I was ecstatic to find my dress- completely unique and totally me. It came straight from NYC last fall, so their dresses are fresh and up-to-date. They also have an amazing seamstress who will create whatever you design, too. They have the option of building up (adding sleeves) to nearly every gown. I will definitely recommend them to friends in the future.

I can't say enough good things about Avenia. If you demand perfection in your dress, there is no other place you should even consider. Nancy Barrus is a goddess when it comes to alterations and will make sure everything is 120 percent right. Avenia's exquisite taste in gown selection and Nancy's ability to see how to make the dress be even more gorgeous and fit each specific body is incredible. Go check them out – you won't regret it.

I had my dress custom designed and made- and it turned out BEAUTIFUL.
Nancy Barrus sat down with me and sketched out some designs until we worked out something that I loved. The entire dress was completed in under 2 months. Nancy was incredibly nice and easy to work with. I would recommend Avenia to anybody!
