The Pure Magnolia team of seamstresses and designers have been making custom wedding dresses for Vancouver brides since 2009.
Custom gowns are a perfect option for brides who are having a hard time finding the perfect wedding dress. Sometimes it is because you have a body type or size that just does not work in a traditional wedding dress, or maybe you just have a vision that you can’t find anywhere. We make custom wedding dresses to your measurements so if you are plus size, petite, or very tall, it makes no difference to us.

It all starts with a one on one consultation with our head designer Patty to brainstorm ideas for your dress design and come up with a sketch. Sometimes the process includes trying on some samples to make sure the vision for the dress will look amazing on you.
We draw from our library of styles, along with other inspiration that you bring. That could include other gowns you might have liked as well as pinterest or other inspiration sources.
Once the dress is designed, it is time to hunt for fabrics. We have many suppliers that can provide us with a large range of fabrics in beautiful colours.
Once we have the fabrics and style set we are able to price the dress and get started. Prices usually range from $2000-$4000 and up. We are happy to work within your budget, and we will adjust the details and fabrics to keep you on budget. The custom price includes fabrics, consultations and up to 5 fittings and alterations to make sure the dress comes together to be just what you envisioned.
Our timeline for custom dresses ranges and could be anywhere from 6-12 months before your wedding. We have limited availability for custom clients each month, so book early to make sure you get your spot. We currently have spots available for Spring/Summer 2019.
