With 16 years of experience designing and producing wedding gowns in San Francisco’s Union Square district, Amy and her team are excited to dress their clients – from down the aisle to every day style!

“Our passion for good design along with our desire to simplify our own wardrobes is precisely what inspires us to craft our bridal and ready-to-wear collections.

So whether you're shopping for an elegant and charming wedding trousseau or curating your closet with iconic and stylish looks, we've got you clothed.”

The collection is beautifully made using American craftsmanship and thoughtful design that takes you from desk to date, from the farmer’s market to wine country weekends. And, certainly, dresses for those really special celebrations: engagement parties and rehearsal dinners, weddings and anniversaries.

The notion of inspiring confidence, to dress to delight, while keeping it all very approachable. It’s attainable luxury that’s high on style, never frivolous. And crafted right here in San Francisco, supporting high-end fashion manufacturing in the US with retails ranging from $160 to $600 for ready-to-wear, and $2000-4000 for bridal gowns. Read less

What an amazing experience!!! Lets start with stepping foot in Amy’s gorgeous showroom, all the natural light, the hardwood floors the beautiful gowns, wow. Wait until you meet her team, especially Teresa Vincent. I live in Portland OR and the closest Amy gowns were located in Seattle. I first came across an Amy gown on Pinterest and I fell in love with Amy’s designs, they were exactly what I was looking for but knew it would be hard to choose they are all so beautiful. While Seattle carried some of her gowns they didn’t carry them all and that is when the crazy idea to head to San Francisco came to life. I had been lucky enough to meet Teresa over the phone when I first called to inquire about Amy’s inventory in Seattle. When I decided to make a trip to CA it just so happened Teresa was there to help my Mom and me as well. What an unexpected and special day Teresa created for us. Part of the magic may have been that many of the Amy dresses I tried on I really liked and they fit so well (a pleasant surprise), but most of all it was Teresa’s passion for what she does, understanding of how important finding a dress you feel amazing in actually is (so she tells you the truth) and helps pull all the other details (undergarments and accessories) together to make the experience so easy and fun. Working with Teresa felt like your best friend was helping you find your perfect dress. We really felt she cared that much. When I went to pick up my dress, Teresa took such care to make sure as we tried it on everything stayed perfect for the big day, she helped me with ideas for my hair and make-up, she was awesome. Last but not least you get a very special gift from Amy herself when you pick up your dress. While I love the dress and loved every minute of wearing it, that little keepsake is one of my favorite momentous! Thank you Teresa and Thank you Amy!! Cheers!

Amy and her team are the definition of "amazing". I came to Amy Kuschel on search for my wedding dress after being recommended her store from a few friends. I already went to three other bridal stores before I came to Amy Kuschel, and I was feeling a little down since I wasn't finding the one dress I was looking for. The minute I walked in with my parents to Amy Kuschel, not only were we welcomed with smiles but with a beautiful and clean bridal store that felt open and inviting. Natasha (who, is no longer with Amy Kuschel, unfortunately!) was the person on the floor who helped me find my dress. She was very sweet, attentive, and she was able to read my style and what I liked/disliked right away. All of Amy's dresses are clean yet beautiful, classic, elegant, and timeless. There are many accessories (belts, earrings, bracelets, earrings) that Amy also has at her store to add to your bridal look. The minute I put on "Sugar", I knew that was the dress. I couldn't take it off, and luckily Natashia let me prance around in it while we got the paperwork sorted. Additionally, I was one of the last to get the services where they include altering with your dress (now they sell the dresses by sizes where you get it altered at a different store) and had to come back 3 more times for fitting. Although Natashia was gone, I was helped by other members of Amy's team, and even Amy herself, and all were nothing but helpful, welcoming, and professional. My dress was perfect, and I would highly recommend Amy Kuschel to anyone. Thank you, Amy and team, for making my wedding dress dreams come true! :)

I couldn't have had a more perfect, exciting wedding dress experience. Everyone I encountered was sweet, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and helpful every step of the way. Amy was there when I came shopping and during my first fitting, and gave some great insight into the design of the gowns. It was also fun to see her get excited about my gown.

Everyone there has impeccable taste and not a soul was pushy or remotely unkind--just super laid-back, classy, positive, and wonderful! These women so obviously love what they do and are passionate about their timeless collections. I would give them 10 stars if I could.

Before I was ever engaged- I knew I wanted to get my dress/gown from Amy Kuschel! My sister had gotten her dress there 10 years earlier- and I saw what her experience was like- and wanted to have the same! From my first visit to the Salon to the final fitting- I was treated like a princess! They made me feel as though they only cared about me- and no one else! My dress was tailored to fit ME- and my body in the best way possible. I cannot thank the team at Amy Kuschel enough for all of their attention to detail and making sure that my dress was PERFECT!

My experience at Amy Kuschel was everything I could have wanted. Last fall, I spent a day with my crew of 9 girls travelling to various designers in San Francisco to try wedding dresses. From the moment we walked into the showroom I felt the vibe I had been hoping for all day, but others fell short. Nearly every dress I tried on was stunning, whether it was my personal taste or not, and in the end I wound up with my perfect dress.

If the dresses weren't enough, I worked with Sinead throughout the selection process and she was so wonderful I could have chosen Amy Kuschel for her alone! She is so sweet, likeable and down to earth that she made our whole group enjoy the shopping experience that much more.

My dress turned out beautifully and fit like a glove. On top of it all, they're somehow so much more reasonably priced than nearly all of the other dresses I tried on. All of my friends are set on buying Amy Kuschel dresses and I couldn't agree with them more. I only wish I had another occasion to warrant buying one of their gowns!

Wow. Amy Kuschel offers a state of the art experience from start to finish. The first time I showed up, Theresa Vincent made my day a delightful one. She was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the process while offering sage wisdom and advice. All of the women there are thoughtful, helpful and gracious. The dress was sassy yet elegant and since it was made for me- literally- it hugged all the right curves. I felt so beautiful on the best day of my life in large part thanks to them!!

What a surprise.

I expected to hate the "wedding dress" part of getting married... as someone who's never been terribly into clothes, who's always hated shopping, who's always been relatively uncomfortable in front of mirrors or with "girly" activities... needless to say, I was dreading the entire process.

Then, I showed up for my apt at Amy Kuschel - and Teresa helped me. I can't say enough wonderful things about Teresa and the team. I felt comfortable and happy from the beginning - which is ASTONISHING. Teresa helped me try on a whole variety of dresses, either in sizes that fit me (or were too big!), or for the dresses that they didn't have in the right size, she had all sorts of tricks for helping me get the idea. The dress I ended up ordering was completely custom - the top from one dress, with the skirt silhouette from another dress - and I absolutely adore it.

Thanks to a medical situation, I was quite significantly overweight at the beginning of this process - and managed to lose 46 pounds over the course of the 8 months leading up to the wedding... AFTER I ordered my dress. The team was absolutely incredible about measuring, re-measuring, re-measuring me... and then altering and re-altering my dress over and over again, up until three days before the wedding itself. It ended up fitting me PERFECTLY - much to my complete surprise.

The dress turned out to be everything I ever could have wanted... and I love all the pictures. I was comfortable and happy, and I actually honestly believed that I looked beautiful - for the first time in my adult life. Seriously... what a gift. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

The women who work at Amy Kuschel are fabulous, particularly Teresa. I had so much fun every time I went in and felt important and special. Their dresses are beautiful, and they have a lot to choose from. I felt that the prices were a bit high, although comparable than other shops I visited in San Francisco, and still less than some. They were very flexible with the appointments, and accommodated me when I asked them to. They also sewed cups into my dress and added a sash that I had purchased, for no extra charge. My one complaint is that I had some issues with the particular dress I picked out. It felt very tight even though I had actually lost weight after my fittings, and some of the ruffling came apart during the reception so that it became way too long for me and I had to pin it up with safety pins. Fortunately, the dress looked amazing in the photos so I'm still happy I bought from Amy Kuschel.
