Amazing job!

I am in love with my custom mother of the bride gown. Lora did an amazing job creating exactly what I wanted. the hand beading was simply beautiful and just enough sparkle.

I took my wedding gown to her for alterations. It was too big and I was worried the top wouldn’t fit correctly – I don’t know why I worried at all with her altering my dress, I swear she makes miracles happen! My dress fit me so well when she was done with it! VanLear is where I will be sending all my friends who are looking for alterations or a custom dress!

I brought in a dress that was given to me from a friend who was married in the 80's. I wanted it redone in a style that suited me and once she sketched out my ideas I could hardly contain my excitement. I felt like a princess on my special day and I got SO many compliments on my dress. She really does amazing work!!! Worth every penny!!!
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

I am so glad I went here and nowhere else

This was the second place I went to after walking out of a different shop when I didn’t feel comfortable. Here I was greeted by friendly and extremely knowledgeable staff. My wedding dress is very intricate due to complex lace, yet all the alterations needed are nearly invisible! I also received a generous military discount that was so appreciated, as the overall cost was expensive, almost $400. Yet I am so glad I went here and nowhere else. What’s the point in having a beautiful dress if you don’t pay for it to fit you? Thanks again ladies!
