This listing is for a custom version of this dress, aptly named, 'Aurora' (for the aurora color accents).Once completed I took one look and said, "What could be more bridal than a cloud of white tulle and Chantilly lace?" Add to that the lace is backed with a blue/gray lining. With peach accents it reminds me of a muted pastel sunset. The skirt is four layers of tulle and a separate slip of crinoline and tulle. Detailed touches include a row of buttons accenting the back and it is all pulled together with a blue and peach sash. Can be ordered with detachable pearl straps. The headpiece is coral-peachy handmade silk florals attached to a tulle bow.

I am obsessed with my tulle pouf! I first saw the pouf in a Martha Stewart wedding magazine and then found Amy's version on etsy. She made the EXACT same one found in the magazine. I tried it on with my dress and it was gorgeous. Thanks so much!

Amy did a fantastic job making me a short wedding dress that we designed together . It did help that I lived nearby for fittings. I came to her with only six weeks before my wedding and she managed to get it completed in time. Thanks Amy !
A DRESS FOR Holly: Deposit


Shipping from United States
Ready to ship in
8 - 10 weeks
*IMPORTANT: I need your wedding date and deadline at the time of purchase so we can make shipping arrangements for a guaranteed on-time delivery.

*Note that the shipping price includes handling. That means the price is also factored by box, tissue, plastic as well as time and care it takes to pack your lovely . . .
*I do my best to work within your time line yet do realize once something enters the US postal system it is out of my hands (especially on international orders). Please understand that I cannot be responsible for the exact 'When' of your merchandise arriving. Fed Ex and UPS cost extra but can guarantee a time and delivery date.


For dresses, especially the ones with big crinolines, USPS shipping runs about $65.00 in the US as long as it is not expedited. Fortunately this includes insurance. The good news is, no sales tax if you reside out of CA. The slimmer silhouettes are lighter and run around $30.00-40.00

*For hats and veils shipped in non-crush boxes, shipping with USPS runs about $15.

*If you want your head piece shipped in a heavy-duty envelope it runs about $8-10 depending where you live. Not recommended for net or tulle head pieces that get crushed.

*If you want overnight or expedited service with UPS or Fed EX the price is higher but is guaranteed so it minimizes the stress factor on your end as well as mine . . ..


*Shipping dresses and head pieces outside the US requires special handling. Convo me and we'll discuss the different rates involved.

*Items shipped internationally go through customs. Delays can happen on either end, whether in the US or the country of destination. Even if your order is expedited through UPS or Fed EX, do calculate this possible delay into your time line .

*International tracking gets expensive so I only offer it if you request it; an additional shipping charge will apply.

*A word about customs. By law I'm required to abide by the laws of customs. I declare any items shipped into other countries as 'merchandise'. Buyers are responsible for any and all duties, taxes and customs charges that may be incurred.

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I accept checks if you are local to the San Francisco Bay Area and we meet personally.

*Dresses are custom made to your measurements. Half payment is required at the time of purchase and remainder upon delivery (shipping not included in this price. See shipping details below)

*If you're ordering a smaller ready to ship item like a fascinator or veil, full payment is required at the time of purchase. For custom accessories (anything that's not ready to ship and has to be custom made for you) I can do half at purchase and half on delivery.

*Convo or email if you need to make other arrangements and we'll work out a different payment plan. I do need at least 1/3 down to purchase materials.

*Please don't ask me about final asking prices or lowering my price. If you saw the time and sweat that goes into creating these gowns and/or head pieces you'd understand the prices are right where they belong.

Returns & exchanges

Due to the nature of custom bridal, there are no exchanges or refunds unless there is a flaw or problem with the merchandise.

If a dress does not properly fit or head piece is not what you expected, please contact me before leaving feedback so an arrangement can be made that creates a positive experience for both of us.

Additional policies

PLEASE NOTE: All dresses, head pieces and veils are created by hand in my design studio, so no two items are identical. That's part of the charm of one-of-a-kind pieces! Please expect and allow for slight variances from what is shown in the made to order photos.

* Once you receive your lovely headpiece it is recommended that you steam veils and any tulle or net on the head pieces whether shipped in a box or heavy duty envelope.

* Plan on having your dress professionally pressed after it arrives and is altered. Shipping really does a number on creasing and wrinkling fabric.
