If you are a vintage-inspired bride, if your dream dress is understated yet elegant, if you are looking for a very specific modern silhouette or unique fabrication and are unable to find it in the traditional bridal shops, consider a custom wedding dress. 

The custom wedding dress process with The Williamsburg Seamster is a creative, cooperative, and easy-going endeavor that encourages the bride to participate in the process of design selection, fabrication, and personalization, resulting in a wedding dress that is truly unique and representative of the bride wearing it.
