Happy Brides

Making each gown special and walking with you through the entire process with patience and love is my whole reason for doing this work.  

I have been entrusted to make hundreds of custom wedding gowns- each one as unique and special as the bride it adorns.  I am pleased to have stellar 5-star reviews from all of our lovely brides.  We will work just as hard for your positive experience, and cannot wait to be a part of your wedding!                                                                      -Janay A

  I was basically the anti-bride… Enter: my mother’s timeless style and Janay’s amazing handiwork. With just a few tweaks, Janay effortlessly modernized my mom’s wedding dress into the look and feel I never knew I wanted. Working with her was an absolute dream…
…As it turns out, wearing my mother’s dress was one of the most special aspects of the experience. There’s a beautiful photo of my grandmother, who recently passed away, helping my mom fix her train. Now we have a photo of my mom helping me into that same dress on my own wedding day. And who knows — maybe someday there will be a photo of me zipping it onto the next generation. -Maria,  Fall 2015, photos and full blog of her wedding here.

“I wanted a 50’s vintage inspired tea-length dress with off the shoulders lace at the top and she gave me that and much more. I had some specific ideas I wanted when I came to her and the rest… I had no idea. Communicating with me the whole time, she took my ideas, brought them to life and then added her own creativity and experience to create the perfect wedding dress for me. The Eco-friendly fabrics were beautiful and custom dyed. The lace was cut perfectly to fit my shape and the look of the dress. She worked with my body type to make sure that the dress was not only the perfect dress I had imagined, but one that looked perfect on me. The fabric and lace sash/ribbon and beautiful hair piece were finishing touches, she added at the end that were the icing on the cake. There could not have been a more perfect dress for me or a more perfect designer. Working with her was the most fun part of my whole wedding planning process. I feel so lucky that I found her!” -Mitra, from the Knot


“Absolutely perfect! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Janay A Handmade! Janay provided excellent service and went above and beyond to ensure that my wedding gown was perfect for my special day. Her friendliness and professionalism were exceptional.” -Review on Wedding Wire


“At the end of the day, I simply cannot imagine getting married in another dress. She made everything I wanted come to life. My dad told me I was radiant and my husband said it was the most beautiful dress he has ever seen. Don’t get the idea that this is out of your budget, either. We had a modest budget for our wedding and I was able to have my dream dress for a price I could afford…” -Krista, Review on Wedding Wire

If it is originality you are seeking, Janay is your go-to girl. She took what was a cookie cutter store window display dress, and catered it to my style, adding fun details (think wasabi green tulle underlay) and sparkle galore! I could NOT be more pleased with the end result… I actually teared up when she presented it to me. No only did Janay bring my dress to life, she offered suggestions for photographers and florists. She truly knows all of the tricks of the trade when it comes to weddings, and I will be forever grateful for her expertise and suggestions. She ALSO helped make suggestions as to what jewelry and shoes would be best suited for my dress. Janay is truly above and beyond. She is not only an amazing designer, but a truly caring individual who will do all in her power to make sure your special day is above and beyond even your greatest expectations. Janay, thank you so much. I will forever hold all that you have done for me in planning my big day in my heart. -Review on Wedding Wire
