Custom wedding dresses for kick-ass women. Grace + Ivory provides beautiful, made-to-measure wedding dresses at real world prices. Our collection of dresses is carefully curated, and every design can be customized. Dresses are made-to-order with quality in mind, with fabrics like soft tulle, Japanese crepe, mid-weight silk satin, and fine cotton lace. With hand-beaded, hand-sewn details, every dress is one-of-a-kind.
As an online e-commerce bridal brand with roots in Washington, DC and Chicago, we create beautiful, custom, made-to-measure wedding dresses for the modern bride. As a women-owned shop, we've partnered directly with our dressmaker, and cut out layers of distributors and retailers to offer gorgeous dresses without the mark-up. We believe in bridal done differently, and create our high quality dresses in three to four months. Each and every dress is carefully sewn and lovingly made for a bride, focusing on proportions and possibly saving on alteration costs. As our mission is about women helping women, a portion of every dress purchase goes to programs helping women and girls in need. We’re currently supporting Plan International’s The Girls' Fund, which has programs around the world focusing on eliminating child marriage, keeping girls in school, girls’ health, and women empowerment.

At Grace + Ivory, we provide an exceptional bridal experience from initial inquiries to purchasing your dress, accommodating custom requests, answering questions, and shipping and receiving. Our unique try-at-home program allows a bride to order a dress sample to their home to see and try, which makes our kickass brand available nationwide. The average turnaround time once a bridal gown is purchased is less than six months. Every dress is made-to-order, some styles are available to try through our try-at-home program, and we occasionally have pop-up showrooms in Chicago & Washington, DC.

There are not enough words in the world to say all the amazing things about Tina and Grace + Ivory! Tina was patient with all my questions and concerns, giving suggestions and helping me customize my dream dress. All communication was prompt, even with all the distance between us. My dress was absolutely beautiful and didn’t break the bank. With the many things to worry about when planning a wedding, never once did I worry about my dress!
Having my wedding dress created by Grace & Ivory was one of the best decision I made while planning my special day! From the very beginning, Tina was amazingly helpful and supportive - she even allowed me to create my prefect dress by putting together the top and bottom of two separate dresses (specifically, I added the top of the Ava dress to the bottom of the Annette dress, and changed the layers of crinoline and tulle from blush to ivory). The end result was so high quality and luxurious looking, I plan to frame the dress and hang it on my wall someday. Most importantly, Tina made the process personalized, fun and simple - which is exactly what you want when you are in the midst of planning your wedding! I promise, you will not regret choosing Grace & Ivory for your perfectly customized wedding gown!
I had the pleasure of working with Tina for my daughters wedding. I wanted my dress to be original and special and it was everything I had hoped and more! The process was so easy and the dress was so much nicer than anything I saw in any high end store. She custom made my dress working with me to alter the design for my figure. It fit perfectly and only needed hemming. I received so many compliments on my dress and now my biggest problem is turning down requests to borrow it!
Grace & Ivory was a delight to work with. I found the dress of my dreams, and because it's all made to measure, I didn't have to do any drastic tailoring. The company also donates a portion of their profits to an international nonprofit, which I LOVE, and the company itself is still fairly small so I made a connection with the founder herself. If you can't get to their boutique in DC, you can order online - everyone should!
I happened upon Grace + Ivory during one of their pop-up shops in DC, and I am so happy that I did. The quality and selection of dresses was noticeably better than the other bigger shops I had visited. I was so pleased with my dress, and even got compliments on the dress from strangers while we were out taking pre-wedding photos. Tina, the owner, was also great and super responsive to emails even after purchasing the dress. Finally, I love that a portion of the proceeds go to Plan International's The Girl's Fund.
I'm so happy I found out about Grace + Ivory; I'd looked in so many places for a dress and had not found anything that I felt fit both my style and my budget. G+I has beautiful designs both traditional and some that are really fun and unique!
I found a dress that worked perfectly for my New Orleans wedding. The customer service was also fantastic, I had a short turnaround until my wedding and G+I worked with me to get my dress quickly!
