About Online Shopping

All custom orders require a special order contract. This protects the client and the designer. Please email fashion designer, Tess Mann, to begin your custom order process at Tess@CoutureByTessBridal.com.


Ordering a Couture by Tess Bridal gown online is a bespoke experience. We will be working with you one on one throughout the entire process.

 

We are committed to making our brides happy. On Custom Orders, it will also be helpful if you send a photo of you in a pair of leggings & a cami or a swimsuit.  We want to make sure that the design you pick will appropriately flatter your figure.  For example, too many brides think they will look great in a mermaid, when structurally, it is a horrible wedding gown form for their body type - we can assist you with a fit that will compliment your body type.
