I got my wedding dress from Avail & Co. and highly recommend Avail to any and all brides! This is a small shop, owned and operated by Rachel Avila and her husband. She is a dress designer and seamstress who can literally bring your vision to life, as well as adding creative touches/suggestions to make your ideas even better. This was my second marriage, so I wanted something a bit non-traditional, namely a light blue gown. Until I met Rachel, my options were basically champagne colored gowns or bridesmaid dresses. I described to Rachel the various dress features that I had seen and liked while shopping. She sat right down and sketched out a dress that was virtually perfect. A week later, she e-mailed me a half-dozen sketches of various versions of/ideas for the dress, which we tweaked until it was just right. Seeing the dress in person several months later took my breath away, and putting it on made me feel like the goddess you want to feel like on your wedding day. Even better, her price is right in line with off-the-rack gowns, but you will be wearing a one-of-a-kind dress that was designed just for you. I couldn’t have been happier with/in my dress on my wedding day!

I absolutely loved the dress that Rachel made for me! I wanted something different and unique but that was still a wedding dress. Rachel worked with me and made a dress even more beautiful than I ever could have imagined, and because it was made for me, it fit like a dream. I didn't need to have any alterations done at all!

Something that I found surprising is that Rachel could make a wedding dress for you for about the same price as you would pay in the store. I felt much better about getting a dress from a person rather than some huge company. I love supporting small businesses! I also got a totally unique dress, so a hundred other girls aren't going to be wearing the same dress I wore.

I am extremely happy with Rachel's work! She was a pleasure to work with - a true professional! Courteous, prompt in all our communication, detailed and does excellent work! I designed my dress on my own and she made it come to life! Best yet is that the price was correct and she was able to turn it around in my already very tight deadline. In addition to my dress I ordered an additional dress - very happy! Rachel is top talent!

Rachel and Ted at Avail and Company are AMAZING!!! They will bring your dress dreams to life. I hired Rachel to create my wedding dress for my July 16, 2011 wedding. She did a fabulous job. Not only are they both the sweetest people, they also work hard to make your dress ideas come alive. I had tried on about 100 dress, and got tired of not finding "the one." After about 10 minutes of telling Rachel what I liked and didn't like, she had sketched MY dress. It was like she could see inside my mind and put my ideas on paper. She worked hard to make sure my dress was perfect. She took measurements, showed me dress and materials samples, and met with me many times to make sure my dress was perfect. She drew up some ideas for the dress and sent them to me online. After the dress was created, she made minor adjustments to make sure I was happy. She was even willing to make major changes if need be, but the dress was already near perfect the first time. The dress is professionally made, and doesn't cost more than a dress from a store. What makes my dress special is that it is MY dress, made JUST for me. I would tell anyone to call Rachel and Ted at Avail & Company. They can make wedding dresses, bridesmaid, mother's dresses and much more. The whole experience is amazing, so give it a try! Check them out at http://availco.com They are located in Poplar Grove, IL, but don't let location hold you back; the trip is worth it!

Rachel at Avail Couture helped me make my own wedding dress - her help was phenomenal, as is her own work of designing and making custom wedding dresses and bridesmaid/flower girl dresses. She is the most talented seamstress I know, is flexible, reasonable, and works with integrity to offer exactly what you want in a custom dress for the bride, bridesmaids, or flower girls.
