Our bride, Amelia wears ‘Julia’

Amelia was such a wonderful bride to work with, so we were all excited when we discovered she had sent us the latest photos from her Charleston wedding. She wore a custom Julia gown in exquisite French lace with a natural waist, full skirt, and sweep train. Prior to putting Amelia’s custom changes into fabric, we created a muslin of her design to make sure the design and fit were executed to perfection.

Along with her bridal portraits, the bride sent along this heartfelt thank-you note to Modern Trousseau designer, Callie Tein:

Amelia bridal portraitsI purchased a wedding gown from Jen for my May 17th wedding, and just wanted to let you know that both my mom and I were absolutely thrilled with the entire experience. Modern Trousseau designs are beautiful, and if I ever have the opportunity to wear one of your dresses again I will jump at the chance (I particularly want the Nila lace gown in navy!) My dress made my wedding day perfect, and the purchasing experience was by far the most enjoyable part of the planning process.

I know that the wonderful experience we had was due to the wonderful, friendly, knowledgable and approachable service we received from Jen. From our first appointment she made my mom and I feel at home and taken care of. We are always looking for local businesses where the quality of service is just as wonderful as the product they offer, and Modern Trousseau Charleston proved to be exemplary. Modern Trousseau Charleston is now the first place I recommend when friends ask about wedding vendors!

The Julia dress was equally amazing!  It was exactly what I was looking for, and I couldn’t have been more pleased or felt more beautiful.  And thank you SO much for your willingness to work [my custom design] in muslin first. I knew I wanted inset sleeves, and trying on the muslin put my mind at ease!

Another big reason my mom and I have become such huge fans of Modern Trousseau Charleston is because [every gown] is sewn in the United States. Thanks so much for your commitment in this economy, and providing quality jobs in our country!


Mail like this reminds us why we love making bridal dreams come true! Congratulations Amelia and Mark! We wish you both lots of love and joy as you begin your lives together.
