I STRONGLY recommend A Brides Design. Laura and her team are professional, welcoming, and fun.

Laura redesigned my mother's wedding gown. I stressed out over the day of bringing the dress to her for the first time but her brilliant fashion mind and vision for the dress made things so easy for me. She always made me feel welcome and that I could say anything or ask anything to ensure my dress was perfect for the big day. It WAS perfect and I received so many compliments on my dress. Plus, it meant the world to be able to wear my mother's dress in my own way.

Also, conveniently, I got my veil, earrings, and garter all from the boutique which were super cute :)

Thank you Laura (and Erin!)... for all of your help in making my dream come true

A Bride's Design had exactly what I was looking for in a wedding dress and more! They were a pleasure to work with and so very accommodating. The shop is also the most beautiful bridal boutique I have ever laid eyes on and definitely added to the experience (I totally cried when I found my dress)

I don't think I could say nicer things about A Brides Design. I love my dress and had a wonderful experience from start to finish! I always felt like the only bride they were working with and never had to worry about anything.

I had a truly wonderful experience at A Bride's Design! Laura is an amazing store owner and wedding dress designer. She was completely accommodating to all of my needs and went out of her way to ensure everything was perfect with my dress. Having previous experience working in two bridal salons I can honestly say you will not find another shop that this caliber of high quality dresses and outstanding customer service. Laura takes the time to get to know each one of her brides and truly strives to create the best overall bridal experience. She made sure that she understood my entire bridal vision and worked to not only help me find the perfect dress but ensure I was able to incorporate a very special piece into my look. My grandmother has passed away before my wedding and had left me her wedding gown from the 1920's. Laura was able to deconstruct the dress and make an amazing silk and lace garter for me to wear on my special day. This piece was absolutely stunning and completely made my bridal look. If you are looking for a personalized bridal experience A Bride's Design is the place to go.

Laura and crew are just wonderful. Laura created a dream dress for me last year for my wedding, and since have passed her name on to every bride I know. Two of the weddings I photographed this year had dream dresses created by Laura. I'm in the wedding industry, and I can say that she puts her whole heart into her business, and her customer service is outstanding. I know that every bride I recommend to her will be ecstatic about her dress. Love her, she's the best.

I never dreamed I’d be able to afford a hand made custom dress. A Bride’s Design and Laura Smith designed and made my bridal gown at an extremely reasonable price. The care she took was unparalleled. She made my dress exactly as I envisioned. She even incorporated the lace of my mother’s gown onto my own. My dress was 100% unique. Laura was a pleasure to work with. I loved every experience I had with her. I highly recommend A Bride’s Design.

My experience with Laura at A Bride's Design was perfect. She was extremely professional and truly cared about making sure my dream dress was exactly what I envisioned. I've recommended her to all of my friends and family! Next step is a baptism gown for my little one. I'll be calling you soon Laura!

I was drawn to a Bride's Design because of their unique offerings & ability to purchase a one-of-a-kind handmade gown. Laura and her staff are welcoming and kind, and the shop is charming - a beautiful (and peaceful) environment in which to select "the dress." Laura was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process, and helped me craft an entire look for my big day - including a 40's style fishnet veil, crystal tiara, and vintage handkerchief to be my "something blue." I would recommend ABD to ANYONE looking for the perfect (and unique) dress for their big day.

After visiting several big box stores, I was left wanting something unique and could not find it. A friend recommended A Bride’s Design and I gave Laura a call and set up an appointment....It was the best decision I made. I tried on several beautiful gowns and we made a plan to create the dress I was dreaming of. I received so many compliments on the day of my wedding- it was everything I had hoped for and more. Several years later, my sister also found her dream dress at A Bride’s Design. Thank you Laura for creating my dream gown!

This place rocks! Laura and her crew made this part of wedding planning such a fun and enjoyable experience. I was sad picking up my dress because I loved coming in! Laura helped make the most beautiful dress for our big day. My mom even had Laura's sketch of the dress design framed for me to have. I received so many compliments on my dress-I'm already thinking of excuses to come back and have more dresses made. I highly recommend A Bride's Design, you will walk out of there the happiest and most beautiful bride ever!

What My dress was absolutely stunning and the lace detail was exquisite. I was able to get all the pieces that I dreamed of at the shop, even down to antique embroidered hankies for my Mom and Aunt. Laura and her team are wonderful! makes it interesting? Write a catchy description to grab your audience's attention...

Laura has provided wedding dresses for my sister, best friends, and now myself. I love that her shop is a small locally owned store and you can tell she really prides herself in her one of a kind work she does. Living in Charlotte, North Carolina you can imagine my anxiety with purchasing a wedding dress out of town. Laura made sure to stay in contact with me, and even stayed till 10:30 pm the night before my wedding to do one last and final fitting with me. I love that Laura tries to put a twist or special touch on whatever dress you pick to truly make it YOU. Thank you Laura, and a Bride’s Design for exceeding every expectation I had with finding the wedding dress of my dreams.
