When shopping for a wedding dress, brides have traditionally headed to bridal boutiques in search of “the one”, only to find overpriced, not-quite-perfect, ill-fitting compromises. Worse – 80% of brides have shared they feel left out from the traditional boutique experience. One they agonize is not inclusive of their budget, body shape or size.
Anomalie is committed disrupting this very broken industry and will stop at nothing to return the power to brides. Creating a custom dress with Anomalie solves for the biggest injustices of wedding dress shopping: straight forward pricing – no absurd mark-ups, complete customization – no compromises, and a made-to-measure fit – 100% body inclusive.
Read on to learn why we’re different and why choosing Anomalie has been one of the easiest decisions our brides say they made when planning their wedding!
Why is Anomalie the most affordable custom wedding dress option?
Many bridal boutiques will force brides into “Saying yes to the dress” by offering some custom options when the dress isn’t everything you’ve ever dreamed. However, those custom ad-ons tend to also add onto the price tag. We all know that when it comes to making your wedding dress dreams a reality, “some” isn’t going to cut it. We pride ourselves on taking a bride-to-be’s vision and executing it flawlessly, so you don’t need to compromise on crucial design details or budget.

Schedule a call with one of our expert stylists to chat about your dream dress!
Our dresses start at $1,350 and around 90% of our dresses fall between $1,350-2,000. The variable pricing is due to (1) material, i.e. amount and type of fabric required to achieve your dress design; (2) amount of handwork/hand-sewing required, i.e. lace appliques, beading, custom embroidery, etc. and (3) accessories, i.e. veils, overskirts, capes, boleros, etc. If you’re trying to stay within a budget, make sure to let your stylist know and we accommodate during your Design Appointment.
Your dress will be 100% unique to you without compromising on quality or budget. We’ve partnered with the same workshops as the top wedding dress designers and source fabrics from the highest quality silk mills abroad.

100% Body Inclusive
No two bodies are the same and when it comes to your wedding day, you want to feel completely confident in the way you feel and look. Anomalie is proudly 100% body inclusive; so go ahead and scratch the word “too” from your vocabulary. No bride is too short, too tall, too curvy, or too small for Anomalie.
Anomalie has created gowns for petite brides, curvy brides, and all those in between, from sizes 00 to 32 and up We make our custom gowns for our bride’s custom measurements, ensuring a better fit all around when compared to sample sizes at boutiques.

No Absurd Mark-ups
As you venture into the beginning stages of wedding planning and dress shopping, you’ll quickly become familiar with the “Bride Tax.” Boutiques apply absurd mark-ups to dresses that cost mere hundreds to make – even those beautiful Berta and Galia Lahav gowns that are priced at over $10,000. By working with our brides one-on-one, Anomalie cuts out the middle man, allowing our custom designs to be priced between $1,000 and $2,000.
