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.

Went to Grace + Ivory yesterday to look for my wedding dress. I was super nervous because I hadn’t been finding my dress and so I didn’t know what to expect. I went to their new brick and mortar shop and it was so cute! It was a spacious loft vibe with all the dresses hung up. I was the only one there so I had it all to myself. I worked with Alyssa who helped me figure out which style and colors I liked. She was super sweet and took pics/videos for me to send to my family. When I FaceTimed my mom and sister, Alyssa helped me out and showed the dress to them for me. I was able to try on all the dresses I wanted and didn’t feel rushed or pressured into deciding right then and there. Towards the end of our appointment Tina came in and spoke with me about all the ways we could alter and customize my dress. I actually found my perfect dress there and am SO excited about it! It is everything I was looking for and more!

Also, you’re uncomfortable going into their store, you can go on their website and have them send dresses to you to try on. All their dresses are shown on the website so you can see what your options are.

Other details to note:
- dresses are really reasonably priced at $2,200 or less
- they can customize the dress in whatever way you need
- the dresses are customized to fit you perfectly
- they said they take about 4-6 months to get the dress made

All in all it was the exact experience I was hoping to have with dress shopping and I highly recommend them!

There are so many great things to say about Grace + Ivory! I started wedding dress shopping in March 2020 right before the shutdown. I went to 4 bridal salons near me and was feeling so defeated with how the dresses looked on me. Dress shopping in general is really difficult for my body frame as I am a petite 5'1" broad shoulder gal. Once covid happened, I started to search for other dresses online and social media. That is when I came across Grace + Ivory! I am so happy I did. I ordered two dresses and fell in LOVE with one. My dress fit perfectly and I didn’t even need alterations! If you like custom made to measure bridal dresses, personable customer service, gorgeous dresses, cute packaging and a safe try it on at home experience then give Grace+Ivory a try. Thank you Grace + Ivory for my dream wedding dress and the incredible shopping experience.

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!
