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.
By partnering directly with our dressmaker, we cut out layers of distributors and retailers to offer gorgeous dresses without the mark-up. 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 Girl Fund, which has programs around the world focusing on eliminating child marriage, keeping girls in school, girls’ health, and women empowerment.
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!
I wish I could give more than 5 stars for Grace & Ivory!!!!! I tried on EVERY wedding dress in the DC, Virginia, and Maryland area and can honestly say that G&I dresses are more beautiful than all of them!! Working with Tina, the founder of G&I was an absolute treat. She is extraordinarily knowledgeable about her dresses, patient and accommodating to every single request, and a sweet and wonderful young entrepreneur. The customer service was hands down the best I've received in my entire life. You feel like an individual bride with G&I, not another customer on a conveyor belt.
I picked the Sienna dress, which is SO GORGEOUS, but skin tight. Tina did all of my made-to-measure measurements, and warned me that I may need additional alterations (which I did once the dress arrived). She worked with me on finding a person who could do alterations and answered all of my questions throughout the process, even though she had already sold me the dress and her part of the process was over.
Let me also say-- the prices are UNBELIEVABLY reasonable compared to other dresses. You simply cannot find this level of quality at this pricepoint elsewhere. The process of having the dresses made overseas scared me at first, but working with Tina made me realize that I could put my full trust in her and the process. It was such a delight.
Best wedding dresses ever!!!!
