I loved working with Ellie. She is the main seamstress on veils. I bought my veil and my belt here, and working with Ellie to create the look I wanted was a seamless process. She's knowledgeable, has a great eye, and is an honest person.
The place has great value since it is sort of a fashion warehouse.
I did not like the owner, Frank. I came in and the first thing he said to me (not even a hello) was "put the iPhone away, no photos". If I wasn't desperate for a veil and a belt at an affordable price at the time, I would've walked right out. Thank goodness Ellie made the experience there bearable for me.
I had my Cathedral veil and short veil custom made by this vendor. The staff assisted me wth picking our the perfect head piece, short veil and designed my cathedral veil (over 12 feet). The quality and price point was excellent. When I asked for price points and wedding salons they were charging at 6 times the amount I paid for my veil I ordered at this venue. My pictures with the above pieces look amazing.
I designed my gown, my maid of honor and mother of the brides gown and had an aunt custom make our dresses. I had a removabe cathedral length train and a separate cocktail dress for the end of the reception. I removed the cathedral veil after the ceremony converted to a short veil for the reception with the head piece. When I changed to the cocktail length dress I just wore the head piece. I wanted a unique touch.
I LOVE SposaBella Lace and will recommend them to all. They made my veil. I've always (since I was a little kid) had my heart set on a cathedral length veil with a thick lace border. The veil I found in the store was really pricey, so I went to SposaBella. They made me a veil that I liked even better for 30% of the price (yes, I paid 70% LESS than retail). They designed it exactly the way I had requested and everything was hand cut and hand sewn. They even pinned it together and fit it to me before sewing it. It was my dream veil... beautiful and worth every penny. The quality can't be beat. Frank, Ellie and Sue are wonderful.
"This is where I got the edging for my custom made dress. It matched the Lace for the dress perfectly. Quite pricey but, it was worth it."
Bought beautiful lace and had my dress custom made... Frank and his staff were wonderful to deal with and the quality of the lace was amazing!
I was a little unsure about the veil Sposabella made for me. Unfortunately, I forget the name of the woman there who made it. I don't think birdcage veils are very popular requests, so I can't really blame her. The veil looked very nice and I got lots of compliments, but I had something slightly different in mind. But, I guess you get what you pay for. I went with Sposabella because the birdcages I saw elsewhere were 3 times the price and I didn't want to spend that much on something I'd be wearing for 25 minutes.
