I live in New York and I worked with Aria remotely by email and phone. I had a dress budget of $1,000 and figured I would just buy a dress at J. Crew and be done with it. I set off on the hunt for a wedding dress in NYC and visited all sorts of dress shops from J. Crew to Lovely Bride, BHLDN, and even Kleinfeld's. I knew I wanted a classic and simple looking dress with straps, nothing with too much bling, and nothing trendy or too sexy. While I liked the look and price tag of dresses at J. Crew, I quickly realized that this low cost meant lower quality and that the gowns did not seem substantial or special enough for a wedding. Everywhere else I went I was discouraged by high price tags and the lack of dresses that fit my personal style. I kept thinking about the "Grace" dress from Aria that had caught my eye on Pinterest a few months back. I reached out to Aria by email and Dean was very helpful. He sent me a sample size to try on at home and I knew this was the dress for me. Even though it seemed crazy to order my dress online, I sent over my measurements by fax and my dress arrived two months later. I ordered a half size larger than usual since I couldn't be measured in person and had the dress taken in and bustled here in New York. I ordered the dress in the stock fabric, a beautiful white raw silk, and customized the bottom with a chapel length train. The dress was beautifully made with a nice lining and thick quality material, substantial without being too hot for a summer wedding. I ended up spending a bit more than $1,000 for my Aria dress, but for the beautiful design, quality and customization it was well worth the price!

For two months I looked and looked for a dress in LA and SanFran...I looked horrible in everything thing I tried on. And then I went to Aria. Every dress I tried on during my first visit with Joshua (who is an absolute peach btw) looked so lovely! Tak mixed and matched elements from two different dresses to make my dream dress. Despite all my insecurities about my body, Tak's design made me feel like an ethereal, bohemian, winter princess at my wedding. I love, love, loved the way the organza skirt flowed especially while dancing - it was the absolute perfect length and cut. I can't thank Tak enough for designing one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever worn in my life. When making the decision to either go with Aria or another designer, what was the deciding factor (aside from Tak's beautiful designs) was the fact they do alterations in-house. I absolutely loved coming into the studio for fittings - it is such a beautiful and chic space which sets the tone for the gorgeous sample garments you'll find on the rack. Thank you Aria for making me so happy :)

From the first visit to the last, I always felt so special and comfortable at Aria. They went above and beyond to ensure that my dress was perfect and that I looked beautiful in it on my wedding day. All of the alterations and customizations are included in the price you pay. For me, that meant lots of extra boning for my larger chest. The designer Tak even ordered me silk ribbon from Japan to use as a sash (and didn't charge me for it!).

Their prices are incredibly reasonable; for the same amount as other commercial dress shops, I received a custom, breathtaking dress with all the alterations, made right here in LA. After searching for months and months, Aria was the last store I visited and the search was over.

No one ever tried to pressure me to purchase anything. In fact, during my first visit, I told him that the dress was the One, but he encouraged me to go home and think about it for a while. After 2 weeks of not being able to get the dress out of my mind, I emailed Tak and told him I needed the dress.

The way Aria works is that you can choose the perfect top and your favorite bottom and they will "Frankenstein" the dress to work for you. I loved the romantic top of the Virginia dress, but wanted a bit more volume on the bottom, so I chose the skirt of the Catherine dress which also had pockets (win-win).

On my wedding day, I felt like a goddess and the compliments from my guests were endless. Tak and his team made my dress shopping and fitting better than I could have imagined and I would recommend them to everyone.

I choose Aria for my wedding dress and lets just say it was the best decision! I worked with Tak from day one, he and the rest of the Aria team were quick to respond to my emails and were flexible with setting appointment dates. Aria was my first bridal shop, but I did go to other salons before pulling the trigger. I fell in love with two of their dresses and Tak assured me that they could create my own vision out of their two dresses (top of one and bottom of another). I was hesitant to purchase a dress I technically have never seen/tried on, but I'm so glad I took the chance. Tak was so amazing, he worked within my budget concerns in creating my CUSTOM dream dress. I was so wowed by the final product!! I could not of been happier with my dress. Their pricing seems a little high, but that includes all alterations, which could of been hundreds of dollars in the end, so it was well worth every penny because there were no "hidden charges". I can not say enough great things about Tak, my experience with him in comparison to the other wedding dress consultants was far above and beyond. He doesn't want to just sell you a dress for a sale, I truly felt like he cared about every detail I wanted and he wanted to find the right dress for me. LOVE LOVE LOVE Aria and I would recommend them to any bride!

I was absolutely thrilled with my dress! I went in looking for a specific style which I tried on. Tak had me try on something different just for fun. I cried! I don't cry but I cried because it was absolutely perfect! Tak is so talented and really has a really good eye for what looks good on your body type. I would recommend Aria to anyone who is looking for the perfect wedding dress.

Why anyone would go anywhere else to get their wedding dress- I do not know. Seriously, I cannot recommend designer, Tak Hau, enough.

I looked through dozens of wedding dress magazines, but I didn't find anything I was totally "in love" with until I stumbled across Aria's webpage. Thanks Buzzfeed! Tak was a designer in one of their videos.

Anyway, I go into his shop, pre-bridezilla mode, and was like "I love this dress, but would love it even more if you made a few adjustments for me." omg such a diva i know. but seriously, when you're trying to find that perfect dress, us girls be crazy.

Even after possibly insulting the designer with my diva-ish comment, Tak not only agreed but drew me a custom sketch on the spot. I definitely took it down two notches and let him do his thing. Basically, I got a custom-made dress for my wedding day because Tak is awesome. Not only did I get my dress, I decided to do a custom train and veil- all of course, with Tak's guidance.

First fitting, second fitting turnaround time is really quick. His seamstress is also amazing. Everything fit perfectly.

Tak Hau is truly gifted at what he does. He will work with you until you are completely satisfied with your dress. Do not look anywhere else for a wedding dress. You will only waste your time.

After six different bridal shops, I just couldn't find the dress that was right for me, and I realized I needed a custom dress. Tak made me the most perfect dress that I hadn't even imagined. He worked with me on ideas that I liked... simple, satin, deep v-neck, show off my back... and turned it into perfection. He knows exactly how to dress a woman for her body and helped me feel amazingly beautiful on my wedding day. My dress was perfect and I felt stunning. He helped me choose my accessories, too. His eye for style and taste is impeccable. He was so professional to work with, too, providing swatches when I needed them, and always responding to emails quickly. The dresses at Aria, both custom and not, are also extremely well priced while making no sacrifices on beauty or quality. I never imagined I would end up with a custom wedding gown, but I am so happy that I did.

Tak is seriously such an amazing designer and person. I was able to design with him the exact gown that I wanted and because he built it to my measurements, it fit perfectly on my first fitting. It was beautiful and perfect and I loved every second I got to wear it. He is so easy to work with and his craftsmanship is outstanding. He also made me a regular navy gown for other events and I constantly receive compliments on it. If you live in LA, you need to visit his boutique, you won't regret it!

My bridesmaids looked absolutely amazing on our wedding day. When the dresses first arrived they were packaged so neatly. I got phone call after phone call about how they felt so glamourous in their dresses. I love the flexibility they leave you to design your dresses. The dresses arrived 3 weeks before the estimated date which was exciting and relieved stress! Excellent customer service and product!
