I am beyond pleased with Ashley and A Cherie Couture. I searched high and low for the perfect wedding dress.. It was so difficult to picture myself in a dress from a designer or a bridal shop. I had seen so many like styles and it was hard searching for something that was just... Read More my own. From my initial interaction with Ashley, I felt at ease and I was so confident that she could make my visions come to life. I wanted simple, but stately..Modern but timeless. My wedding dress seemed just that and to me it was everything I dreamt of and more!

A. Cherie brought my vision to life and worked tirelessly to help me achieve what was in my brain. I work in the fashion industry and look and touch hundreds of gowns a week, so when looking for dresses at local stores and online I could never find anything I hadn't already seen... Read More or that felt special to me. A.Cherie took what was in my head and brought it to life and was so patient with me when I was making sometimes impossible and outlandish requests. The owner is talented and helpful and wants to make your day special and the process smooth. And the price was incredible! Custom to exactly what I wanted and for a price better than most anything I was looking at. Highly recommend A.Cherie!!! The only thing I would suggest is to make sure you order your dress in plenty of time in case your weight fluctuates and the fit changes over time. Not the fault of A. Cherie, and I did receive my dress in time, but I was silly, and chose to not get my dress altered once I received it. I had lost some weight and the dress fit a bit big. No one noticed but me, and it was not a huge deal, I was just trying to hard to save time and money! All in all, wonderful experience with A. Cherie!

Words cannot describe my overall experience with Ashley and A. Cherie. It all started with her professionalism. I was favoriting wedding-related items on Etsy when I saw that I received a message from Ashley, introducing herself and her company that designs one-of-a-kind... Read More wedding gowns for brides all over the world. I had never thought about a custom made gown (too expensive, too many choices, etc)... but she seemed authentic so I set up a meeting. Ironically, her location not only was in the same city I live in, but only about 10 mins down the road! From there on, I knew it was fate. My first meeting was perfect - I could tell Ashley could pin-point exactly what I envisioned and she was so attentive to details. The entire process from then on went without a hitch. She is so creative and passionate about what she does, and also strives in every way to make sure the bride/client is happy. She uses many measurements in her designs to ensure a perfect fit, she thoroughly utilizes any pictures that you provide while also helping you create a unique one-of-a-kind design, and her sketches are spectacular! She uses top quality fabrics and accessories, her seamstresses are great, and she truly makes her sketches come to life right before your eyes. On top of all that, she is one of the sweetest human beings I have ever met and her personality is awesome - she could get along with anyone! My wedding was this past NYE and my dream dress had many aspects of a bunch of different dresses that I loved. It incorporated lace, rhinestones, beading, an overskirt, a big bow, and so much more so it was a lot. I brought in pictures to the initial meetings, but I'm also a very indecisive person and so throughout the process I would change my mind on a lot of things. Through all of that, Ashley was extremely flexible and no matter what always made sure I was happy. The end result of my gown made me speechless - it was exactly what I envisioned and was breathtaking in every way. I told her it was far better than the expensive designer gowns that I had loved for so long. To be able to have so much input in your wedding dress design, to be able to see the process happen step-by-step, to get exactly what you envisioned in the end, and to do all of this at an affordable cost - sounds too good to be true, but it's not. I could not recommend A. Cherie enough!! Thank you so much Ashley, for everything!

A.Cherie Couture made my New Year's Eve wedding dress and I was so incredibly happy with my experience working with Ashley. I tried on >100 dresses and liked elements of several of them, but couldn't find the one that had everything I was looking for. I started looking into... Read More custom dresses and came across A.Cherie on Etsy. I was somewhat hesitant to go the custom dress route because I wasn't familiar with the process and didn't know anyone who had done it before. Ashley had so much patience with all of my questions and took the time to answer everything (in a very timely manner!) until I was confident. This was before I paid for anything, so I think that speaks volumes about her professionalism and commitment. She was very thorough when doing the sketch and technical rendering of the dress to make sure every detail was what I wanted. After the dress went into production, there were times I got nervous because I doubted my vision, but I thought about how all of Ashley's dresses turn out beautifully and knew I was in good hands. Sure enough, my dress was perfection and exactly what I had hoped it would be! Ashley also did 2 fittings for me as well as the bustle to get the fit exactly right since it was a form-fitting gown. While the process of having a custom dress designed is definitely a commitment, especially when all the other responsibilities involved with planning a wedding can be stressful, but Ashley made my experience as stress-free as possible. It was so special to have a custom dress made and I highly recommend A.Cherie Couture. Thank you, Ashley!

I LOVED MY VEIL!!! It was my favorite part of my wedding attire. I was so lucky finding Ashley 2 months before my wedding. I started searching for a veil 8 months before that. I had the BHLDN painted floral veil in mind but was not willing to spend $500 for a veil. Other etsy... Read More shops didn't have the floral lace I was looking for. Then comes Ashley & she was just AWESOME. She knew exactly the lace that would work & how I wanted it to look. Ashley updated me regularly on the progress of the veil & also to make sure I was happy with how it was turning out. The most impressive part is that she had to work through Hurricane Harvey! The veil is more beautifully made than most veils I saw in the stores that cost twice as much. Not meaning to be cliche but she will make your wedding dream come true.

If I could give ashley 10 stars I would! She exceeded my expectations far beyond anything I could imagine. I tried on retail dresses and just didn't feel comfortable splurging on something I didn't absolutely love. Or for something that didn't really fit. Ashley and I sat down...

She was professional, timely, and gave me a gorgeous dress that I didnt even realize was my dream dress when sketching it. She also is realistic and tells you up front what you can do based on your budget. The dress needed minimal adjustments because she measured me to the T and the dress ended up fitting like a glove! I can't wait to wear my dress for my wedding. I have been reccomending acherie to all my friends because she is THAT good. Can't wait to share photos. She made me a dress that would literally be "me" if I were a dress. I could barely even catch my breath when I first saw it because she did so AMAZING on it.
