I found Dolly Couture online by chance while searching for tea length wedding dresses. I seriously fell in love with the retro style of the dresses and saw they had location in Los Angeles to try them on. I'm from California so off I went to drag my parents to Dolly's and try on dresses. Expecting to be going to a storefront, I was actually surprised to be going to Dolly's house! That was actually a lot more comfortable and intimate. My dress fitting assistance, Yasmine, was very sweet and down to earth and helped me feel relaxed. Dolly was actually there briefly and it was fun talking with her about the dresses and different styles.

We were in and out the door in under 45 mins flat- no joke. I had chosen 3 styles prior to going in this order: Walnut Creek, Avila Bay, and Cambridge. I tried each dress on and fell in love with Cambridge. I said "yes to the dress" in 15 mins, hahaha. We all agreed it was very flattering and I felt like a bride. Yasmine measured me and I was able to order and pay for my dress right then.

My dress showed up sooner than expected and it was so beautiful! I had it taken in and fitted to me like a glove and I received sooooooo many compliments on it. I am still so pleased with it and would recommend Dolly to any bride looking for a less "traditional" but uniquely beautiful wedding dress.

I just received my dress last week and I could not be happier with the results! I ended up customizing my dress with a different color than their standard fabrics. I visited the Los Angeles showroom and was enthusiastically assisted by Dolly herself. My experience with Dolly was wonderful! She was so patient and answered my many questions and helped me choose the perfect dress. I had been on the fence with going the traditional long gown route, or going with a short dress. Coming to Dolly Couture absolutely confirmed that I wanted a short wedding dress. I love that my alterations (if any) will be minimal - after hearing so many horror stories from friends, I was worried that I might end up spending nearly the same amount on alterations as I did on the dress itself. This is not the case with Dolly Couture - my dress fits like a dream! Abby was also very helpful in the ordering process. She responded to my emails quickly and listened to my questions and concerns as I was making my final design decisions. They were even running a promotion and I got $100 off my dress. I highly recommend Dolly, Abby, and the entire Dolly Couture team! If you are looking for an affordable, beautiful, and unique short wedding dress, this is the place to go!

The staff at Dolly Couture guided me and my dear friend in designing my wedding gown. It was a wonderful experience. From the first moment we happened upon the look, I was overjoyed -- surprisingly moved to tears. Everyone was completely attentive at responding to my inquiries along the way. Abby put me in touch with an AMAZING seamstress for additional design tweaks and fitting. I felt so cared for. And as for the dress, I can honestly say I've never felt so beautiful, happy and comfortable in a garment, ever. Thank you, Dolly Couture!

There is no showroom in NYC. I was able to try on a choice of 2 dresses in the home of a store rep, which was inconvenient and strange. I liked one of the dresses and ordered it, however when it arrived it had extra puffy layers that I had to pay to get removed. The dress ended up working out well, but I would have rather gone to a regular bridal shop with more selection and service.

I knew I wanted a vintage style dress, but it's often hard to find one in my size. When I found Dolly Couture online I knew this would be a hit! Honestly, I didn't even bother looking at any other dress shops. I made an appointment to visit the NYC showroom and with the help of the saleswoman and two of my friends I was able to design a custom dress based off of two different dresses. I fondly remember asking, "Can I have pockets?" and she said, "You can have anything you want!" They were so accommodating, and the price was right. Less than $1,000 for a beautiful, custom made dress that is unlike any other! Shipping time was estimated at 8-12 weeks, and it arrived 8 weeks after ordering. So excited to wear it on my big day!

I wore a custom Dolly dress at my wedding and couldn't have been happier with my experience! I met with Yvette at the NYC location a year before my wedding. I thought that I knew exactly what I wanted, but Yvette helped me pick out something so much better for my form and coloring. I knew that I wanted a tea length tulle skirt, so Yvette had me try on several dresses with different bodice shapes until we found the perfect combination. I went with the sleeveless Beverlywood bodice with a slightly deeper neckline, v-back, and functioning buttons, and the moon river tulle skirt with a peach chiffon petticoat. After picking out the components, I worked with Abby via email to work out the details and received a sketch in no time! When I received my dress, there was a sewing error (petticoat was attached inside out so you could see the color through the tulle). Abby responded to me immediately (it was 7:30 on a Friday night), sent me a shipping label, and had it returned to me in perfect condition in 2 weeks. She was amazing, and the definition of excellent customer service. Since I ordered the dress with my measurements, it fit perfectly as soon as it arrived. The only alterations I made were to shorten the straps as I have a short torso. The dress was absolutely stunning and so unique. I've received so many compliments on it! I'll admit, ordering a wedding dress this way probably isn't for the faint of heart since I didn't get to see the finished product until it was in my hands, but it was so worth it! It was the perfect expression of my style and so flattering. I'd highly recommend getting the custom petticoat. They have tons of colors to chose from, and having the hidden pop of color was really fun (and made for great photos!).

We decided to elope to Las Vegas and being a curvy girl I knew I wanted a vintage looking dress. I found the Dolly website and simply fell in love with all the dresses. I made an appointment and met Yvette at the NYC studio, she was and absolute DOLL to work with. I went in wanting the "Beverlywood" and Yvette suggested I try the "Avila Bay". When I put it on I knew, this was my dress. It came and I only needed to make on slight adjustment to the sleeves. I have to say for a curvy girl I felt beautiful. We came back from Las Vegas and decided to have a party (family decided really) and I wore my dress again. Everyone told me how beautiful the dress was and how beautiful I was in it. Thank you Dolly and Yvette, you make us curvy girls love ourselves on our special day when the rest make us feel ashamed with our curves...xoxoxo

I really wanted a tea length or shorter wedding dress, and I had a really hard time finding stores in my area that carried them. I also wear a size 24 dress, so I had a doubly difficult time finding dress shops that could accommodate a fitting for me. I visited the DC showroom in Los Angeles, and they had several plus sized dresses available for me to try on. I went into the store with a pretty good idea of what I wanted, just based on their website, but in the end I picked a completely different dress and fabric. I was able to customize my dress and my fabric choices, and I still kept my dress cost under $1000.

My only criticism would be that, even though the clerk took my measurements, she ended up rounding up to the next highest regular dress size, rather than using my actual measurements to customize the dress, so it ended up being WAY too big for me. Luckily, my local alterations lady did an amazing job fitting me, but she basically had to take the dress apart and reconstruct the entire thing.

Despite that, I had a really good over-all experience with Dolly Couture. They were flexible with my schedule and happy to help me with my customization options. The dress was completed and shipped directly to my house in just a few weeks. I would definitely recommend them if you are interested in a shorter vintage style wedding dress.

I was so excited when I found Dolly Couture online. I needed a dress for our elopement, and thought a short dress would be great. I went with the Beverlywood because I wanted my arms covered. Well.... I emailed to make sure of some things before ordering, was not told that a petticoat would be sewn into the dress. So I ordered one and later discovered it was unnecessary. The only asked for two measurements, which unfortunately did not fit a standard size, was between 2 sizes. So I stupidly ordered a custom (which cannot be returned). The dress arrived quite quickly, which was good. The quality was not very good (I had threads coming out from the sleeves etc and they looked awful and cheap basically). The buttons on them looked cheap and tacky and like they'd fall off pretty easily. The dress was far too big for the measurements I gave. The dress was not tight to the waist or the breasts. It was also far too short on my body, making me look far larger than I am. They really should be asking for more measurements. I'm trying to sell the disaster dress now and I bought a much more beautiful one for less than this cost. Nearly a grand wasted at the moment on dealing with this company. Oh well, shouldn't order dresses off the internet from a store that refuses to accept returns for 'custom' measurements I suppose!
