I was fortunate enough to have a few acquaintances recommend Lisette Lux when I told them I wanted to have my wedding dress made. Hiring her was one of the best decisions I made throughout the whole wedding process. Lisette is eccentric, she admits that. She's true to her craft and is incredibly talented and meticulous. My dress ended up being everything I had imagined it would be - she let my design really come through while offering her own advice and expertise when necessary. She's amazing and I strongly recommend hiring her if you want a custom design. She's not inexpensive, but, my dress cost around what a Vera Wang, Reem Acra, Amsale, etc. would cost and the fabric, craftsmanship, and high-design are all not only unique, but also FAR superior to what those aforementioned labels sell for a few thousand dollars. My dress would've been TENS of thousands of dollars, had I hired Vera Wang, Monique L'huillier, etc. create it for me. So if you're familiar with couture prices, I guess she is a bargain. Anyway, Lisette is great and creates beautiful, sophisticated gowns.
