Dianna DiNoble, Starkers Corsetry

Tired of trying on endless gowns that aren't exactly what you want? Frustrated about spending hundreds of extra dollars on alterations? Our bridal corsetry is custom made to your exact design specifications and measurements, so you can be sure that you are getting exactly what you want for your special day. Our corsets are adjustable, and can fit approximately a 10 pound weight fluctuation either way.

Borrowed by Design

Borrowed by Design "BBD" is an online community for women to rent their formal wear to each other. You can think of us as the AirBnB of fancy dresses! Our concept started out of a need to find a formal dress for a volunteer event and one of our co-founders, Kat, wanted an easy place to find someone built like her to borrow a dress for just one night.

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!

Jill Andrews Gowns

I capture elegance, whimsy, sentiments, and transform them into a dress, a slip, a corset. I love the beauty of an exquisite fabric finely draped, the surprise of a pop of color, the drama of an unexpected wedding gown. I bring the tradition of custom dressmaking to modern women. By working with my client as my muse, I create the uniquely perfect piece for her.
