“As a midsize, petite, and curvy woman, wedding dress shopping was something I was always worried about – would I be able to find a dress I felt comfortable in and that fit my body the way I wanted it to? The option to have a custom dress made by a local designer whose work I already loved was a perfect solution to this problem. I chose a dress already on the Copious site – the Audrey dress – and together Carissa and I made a few changes to the design to create my dream dress. We added cute sleeves, a zipper at the back for convenience, and having pockets to fit my phone, lipstick, and hand sanitizer throughout the day was just amazing! The whole process was easy, and with our wedding being pushed back because of the pandemic, Carissa even made time to take my dress in, closer to the wedding date. The whole custom dress experience really gave me that unique, special, one-of-a-kind feeling that I think every bride wants on their wedding day!”
I loved working with Amanda on her dress, and will always remember our experience. A couples' wedding day will always be special, but the fact that I get to work with brides leading up to this special day and make them feel that 'one of a kind feeling' is everything to me.
