You know what I like about you? Every time I have a vision in my head of the way I want something to look, you make it look exactly that way. Incredible. Once again the dresses are perfect. --- Suzanne

Every time I had a fitting you made me feel like I was the only Wedding you were involved with. I always felt so special. Thanks! What a gift. --- Tami

You did my first daughters wedding gown and now I am back with the second. Every girl should have the opportunity to feel so special. The joy and service you provide to each and every bride is unsurpassed. The service you provide is as important as the wedding gown itself. THANKS!! Jeanette and Jennifer's' Dad

"I can't believe you just took this sketch and made this wedding gown. From Nothing!? " (This quote came from an apparel Buyer for a large Dept. store who attended a fitting with one of my brides.) I must admit I get comments like this a lot.

Testimonials-6.jpg My dress was absolutely gorgeous! So many people commented on how beautiful I was, and my bridesmaid too. We were all perfect! You are truly genius!! THANKS! Janelle

Thank you so much for the beautiful job you did on Alli's wedding gown. It was exactly what she wanted. Emmy's gown was perfect too. Mary

The dresses are Beautiful! Thank you for all of your help and for being so flexible. My day will be so beautiful!
Love Amy

I recently attended a wedding that you had designed the bridal gown. I literally got tears she looked so stunning entering the sanctuary. I attend many weddings, never before have I been so taken back at how striking she looked. WOW! I know where I am coming when my girls are ready for their own dream gown.

Testimonials-1.jpgMy daughter Ali is small and has such a difficult time finding dresses to fit her properly. Every time we have to have an important dress for Ali we have come to Valerie. She has made two flower girl dresses, dance costumes, a bridesmaid gown and most recently a semi-formal gown for the high school dance. Everything Valerie has made for Ali (who is now 16 years old) is unique, well made, and fits her perfectly. She not only makes a great dress she designs great dresses too.

I just want you to know how very special you have made my wedding day. I have dreamed that for my wedding I should feel on top of the world and like a princess. Because my gown is exactly what I dreamed of, I truly do feel that dream has come true.

Love You, Angela

Testimonials-2.jpg Valerie has made many dresses for my two daughters in the past 4 year. Her work is amazing. My daughters get so excited when they start looking at photos because they know they can have any dress they want and they can choose their color. The girls love her creative eye and the suggestions she offers to give their gown that special perk. Valerie has definitely put a smile on the word original when you put on something she has designed for you. I highly recommend her, you will not be disappointed.

I am totally blown away with how beautiful my gown is. It is way better than I ever imagined it would be. It fits me perfectly and that fabric you suggested is magnificent. Thank you so much.


Testimonials-3.jpgThank you so much Valerie! This experience has been enhanced by you!! The wedding gown is breathtaking and just perfect. You are amazing at what you do and so much fun to work with. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

 I was so excited when I saw you were finally doing a line of gowns yourself (Ann Loraine ). My prom gowns you designed were wonderful. I just got engaged and want you to help me decide which Ann Loraine will be best for me. Talk to you soon.


I am just elated with Jessica's wedding gown. It is exactly what she wanted. She looks beautiful in it and is so excited to wear it. I must say however, now that I have just finished writing my check. "You do not charge enough".

Jessica's mom

the bridesmaid gowns were perfect too!  You did such a wonderful job on all of the dresses.

My day was perfect and I wanted to thank you for being a huge part of that!!

Thanks so much,


Testimonials-4.jpg Wow, we started out planning my gown for a wedding on the beach and in the process we changed to a vintage style in a mansion. You brilliantly, rethought the entire process and made it work perfectly. Amazing! I have never had a dress fit so perfectly. Thanks so much for your patients, and flexibility. You're wonderful!!


Valerie-Testimonial-Image.jpg This is a little out of character but I, Valerie Silvers, want to comment on my own testimonial page. This is a word from me regarding the photographer. I came to know Jeannie Dibble at a bridal show. She came to me and asked if she could photograph my gowns. She made the comment that they were just so beautiful and fit all of the girls so well. That is absolutely the best advertisement she could have done because I saw what a wonderful photographer she was and how well she works with her subjects. That was probably seven years ago and I send brides to her constantly and she still takes photos of my wedding gowns. Many thanks to her and her grand talent.
