Crafty Broads LLC

Hi! We're Cindy and Julia! (That's us up there in the photo.) We are a pair of stage managers/costume designers, and after we DIY'd the hell out of our wedding (we made those dresses, among other things), we decided to spin those skills towards helping other people do the same. Since then, we've been making wedding dresses, doing alterations, and planning/coordinating weddings for lots of awesome people. We love all kinds of people and their unique ideas, so we are hoping being here on Offbeat Bride will help us connect with couples doing things a little out-of-the-ordinary. We would especially love to start making some wedding dresses/suits/corsets that are not in the pale section of the color wheel!

Auralynne

I’m heavily into steampunk and cosplay myself, so each of my designs gets tested for durability and comfort while on my own costumed adventures. I draft my own patterns, for a figure flattering fit, and my hats are specially shaped to accentuate the eyes and face.  As you’ll see in the stylings of my designs, it’s my passion to help you feel beautiful on your special day!

Zeita Studios

The Zeita Studios team met during academia and bonded through theatre. All with unique talents, backgrounds and personalities, one commonality drew us together: the desire to tell a woman's story through custom clothing. We all firmly believe that a garment should hold a story — we love the life behind vintage garments, refashioned pieces and costumes because they carry a story within the seams or support an overarching theme.
