Why did you decide to go the custom wedding dress route?

After trying on a ton of expensive dresses that were my style, I noticed afterwards the price was consistently $5,000+. I knew I would have to get a custom made dress in order to stay in my price range and to accommodate my cup size and height. I had a very specific vision in mind and could’t find this dress anywhere in stores.

How did you first learn about Anomalie?

I first noticed Anomalie on WeddingWire, but I also Googled “online custom wedding dresses”. I stumbled upon Weddingbee, where brides shared their opinions and experiences with different dress companies. One bride mentioned she had a dress made with Anomalie; she explained how reasonable the prices were and also how everything was done online. I knew what I was looking for something that I wouldn’t find in stores, so I was definitely thinking the custom route. I was a little skeptical, so I decided to research the Anomalie Instagram where I discovered a tagged bride. I actually wrote her a message! (I know it sounds creepy, but there are so many scams, I had to know if Anomalie was legitimate. I didn’t want to send my money to just any online dress site.) She surprisingly wrote back and shared photos of her dress. She was very nice and actually offered advice. That is what sold me on going through with the process.

What inspired your dream dress?

I am a true fashionista! I knew I wanted something unique and a dress to show off my curves. My wedding was taking place on a beach, so I wanted something that would match my venue. I enjoyed speaking with my stylist and her allowing me to upload multiple photos to my account. She was very thorough on asking what I wanted from each photo. My favorite part was receiving the fabrics to choose from – that’s when I knew this is really happening! Being able to choose my specific lace and fabric was something I knew would really bring all of my details together.
