  • 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!

    HI Isha! Thank you so much for your kind words. We loved making our Tabitha dress for you and your support for a women-focused social enterprise. We're currently based in Chicago now but DC brides can still order samples to try via our try-at-home program! Congrats to you and your hubby! xo, Tina

  • I was planning a last-minute elopement in 1.5 months, and Grace + Ivory made it possible for me to find my dream dress! They went out of their way to talk to me personally about my timeline and made it possible for me to try on a couple of their dresses at home and ultimately purchase one of their dresses. AMAZING quality, AMAZING design, and AMAZING customer service. I had been VERY stressed about finding the perfect dress, but Grace + Ivory made everything manageable. On the day of the wedding, I felt gorgeous in my dress. My husband cried at our first look photos, and I thank my dress for it! A lot of my friends were also amazed that I was able to purchase such a beautiful dress online, and it totally changed all of our opinions on dress shopping. Even some friends whom I hadn't talked to in years contacted me on Facebook to ask where I got my dress! I highly, highly recommend Grace + Ivory. They will help you find your dream look.

  • I worked with Tina to design my dream dress, which was not hard considering her gorgeous suite of dresses that are all customizable. I got to see her dresses first hand at a pop-up and she was so attentive right off the bat. The fabrics were stunning and I was immediately drawn to the silk used in the Elise, a fabric that would have cost a fortune if purchased off the rack. She took my measurements and within a few days, I had a sketch in hand straight from Tina and her dressmaker tailored to my body. Her response time was incredibly fast and she provided updates along the way, essential for an anxious bride! My dress was not only unique but timeless. I could not have dreamed of a better experience from start to end.

    Hi Jackie, Thank you so much for your kind words! We loved working with you on your wedding dress and thank you for sending amazing photos as well. Congrats again to you and your husband. xo, Tina

  • In August 2019, I entered a Grace + Ivory pop-up store for some preliminary wedding dress research. Literally the first dress I tried on was the one I wanted to be married in, and I left the store with my measurements taken and my dress ordered! I love Grace + Ivory's made-to-measure model. My dress fit so well when it arrived, needing minimal adjustments by the time my wedding came around in November 2020. The dress was easy to put on and take off, didn't require any special underthings, and the design was unique and stunning. The tulle layers did end up feeling heavy, but I think that comes with the territory. So pleased with my decision to choose this vendor!

    Hi Lucy, thank you for your kind words and it was wonderful working with you to make your Nia dress for your big day! Congrats to you and your partner on your recent wedding! xo, Tina

  • 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.

    Hi Toni! Thank you so much for your kind words and we are honored to have worked with you to make your dress for your big day. We're so happy to have made your experience incredible, which is what we strive to do! Congrats and best wishes to you! Warmly, Tina

  • I had the most wonderful experience working with Tina at Grace + Ivory. Their dresses are gorgeous with such amazing quality! Tina was incredibly organized, kind and supportive and has wonderful insight into the wedding dress world. Tina was always quick to communicate and was incredibly thorough in answering all of my (many) questions. She also offered up great ideas and perspective on helping me find the perfect dress. Not only is the mission and philosophy behind Grace and Ivory wonderful, but so is their ability to make women feel empowered and excited to find the right wedding dress for them! Highly recommend!

  • 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.

    Hi Allahna, this reply is late but very heartfelt. Thank you for trusting us with your bridal gown and it was so fun to create! Congrats again and we hope you're doing well. Best wishes, Tina

  • I want to wear my wedding dress again and again and again... That’s how much I love it and the entire process of creating it with Grace + Ivory! The feeling of envisioning my dress and then having every single detail of it realized without spending a fortune is something I‘ll appreciate forever. I get nonstop compliments from people who then gasp when they find out what I paid for the perfect custom dress. The quality and workmanship were top tier and the personalized service far exceeded what I found in the most high end bridal boutiques. I’d give Grace + Ivory a million stars if I could!

    Hi Leslie! It was so fun working with you on your custom, made-to-measure dress. I'm so happy you were thrilled with the results and we love all the photos. Thanks for sharing them with us and congrats again! xo, Tina

  • I first heard about Grace + Ivory from a friend who told me about a popup they were doing at Ezra Paul in Washington DC in Feb. 2019. I was initially drawn in by the gorgeous, unique styles on their website and was impressed at the reasonable prices. I tried on three dresses and the quality of each was impressive (I had gone to several bridal appointments at that point in my search, and the quality was comparable to far more expensive dresses I had tried on at traditional bridal shops). Tina (the owner) was amazing and immediately puts you at ease with her friendly personality and attention to detail. Though I didn't purchase a dress from Grace + Ivory as I ended up falling in love with a dress of a different style elsewhere, it made for a very tough decision and was one of my top choices! However, I did end up being the winner of a drawing for a custom lace-edge veil, which turned out to be absolutely gorgeous with beautiful lace detailing at the edges, and I'm so excited to wear it! ...

  • 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!

    Thank you Michelle! We loved working with you on your Sienna dress and swapping out with a customized skirt design. It made it uniquely yours and the photos are stunning! Thank you, Tina

  • Grace + Ivory was a godsend. I found them through a facebook ad early on in our engagement, and had my eye very specifically on the Elise Dress. Nothing else I looked at online compared. I'm located in Virginia, so I made an appointment with the owner, Tina and went with my mom and MIL to do a try-on in DC. First of all, Tina is so incredibly kind and welcoming. Every question I had was answered with confidence, and I felt so at ease from start to finish with the whole process. Luckily, trying on the dress was even better than I had imagined (for months I stared at it online daily! Haha) and going with G+I for my dress purchase was an obvious choice. Not to mention it was made entirely to my measurements. I spent ZERO dollars on alterations!! Zero! On top of loving the dress, the company as a whole really spoke to me, personally. It felt good to be supporting an honest and hard-working small business that was woman-owned and that gave back to a great cause. The experience betwe... Read more

  • 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!

    Hi Maggie! Your creative strapless Ava and Annette skirt combo in champagne looked so amazing and perfect for you. Thank you for having us make your beautiful gown and sharing you photos! Warmly, Tina

  • I am so so so grateful for Grace & Ivory and for the owner Tina! Tina was so accommodating and meticulous. Her responses were quick and thorough. She made sure that I was 100% happy with the final product and I sure was! The Emma dress made me feel like a complete princess and I literally had kids at the wedding calling me a princess too. I recommend this place to everyone!! Don’t sleep on this, go with Grace & Ivory. You won’t regret it!
