I don't know who of you is in the market, but just in case you are or know of someone who is...
I've recently learned of Stasia Modest Couture, an online-based boutique that designs and creates 100% of its gowns in the USA (Chicago, IL to be exact). Stasia Modest ships bridal gowns worldwide, catering specifically to modest brides.
You can basically design your own dress (customized tailoring for wedding gowns can be very expensive...on top of the price of the original wedding gown) by choosing from a variety of sleeves, bodice tops, and skirt options. There's an e-dressing room for you to use, and your dress is built to match your specific measurements.
Best of all, the talented Stasia people will create a muslin form to your measurements and send it to you within 7 days so that alterations can be made from that point on.
You get (this is awesome) photo updates of your gown every 2 weeks thereafter. (This feature seems super duper exciting to me...like video monitoring your baby or pet or something. I love this!) Oh, and you can choose a color-coordinated sash for your wedding party, if you want. Tres cool.
Typically, from the time your approved muslin form is returned to Stasia, your final beautiful wedding gown will be in your hot little hands within 4-6 weeks. What an incredible process and service that simplifies an inevitably chaotic time.
Good news: Stasia is offering A Day in the Life Too... readers 10% off all wedding gowns through December 31 of this year. Use the code ADITLT10 at checkout.
Seriously, you guys, if you need a wedding gown or know of someone who does, you should check Stasia Modest Couture out. Beautiful, custom, AND modest wedding gowns? I die.
