I loved loved loved my wedding dress

I loved loved loved my wedding dress. I came to Van Lear Custom Couture with a vision and Lori blew me away with the final product. It was so much fun working with her to design and make the perfect dress for me on my wedding day. She helped turn this tomboy into a bride and I am forever grateful

Turned my dreams into a reality!

Lora created the wedding dress of my dreams and for that I am forever grateful. Lora was so kind and professional. I loved each and every one of our fittings; such a fun experience to look forward too. She turned my dreams into a reality! If you need ANY work done on clothing or want to make something custom and unique hands down go see Lora at Van Lear! You won’t be disappointed, I sure wasn’t!

She listens, She cares, and she’s fun to work with.

I will not take a formal dress anywhere else for alterations. Lora listens to what you want, and how you want your dress to fit. At other places (including David’s Bridal), you are treated like you are stupid, and THEY will tell YOU how YOUR dress should fit, even if it emphasizes every insecurity you have… garbage. Go to Van Lear. She listens, she cares, and she’s fun to work with.
