Paper, pencil and some inspiration from fabric swatches, flowers pearls and crystals and i just start creating sometimes i know where i am going and sometimes i don’t. if you wanted to design your own gown what would be our inspiration? a theme, a style or maybe taking a piece of your mother’s vintage wedding gown. i would love to hear your thoughts. -

Did you know that we make custom gowns for mother of the bride? well we do, and these special ladies love the option of hiding areas that they want camouflaged and accentuating the parts they want to show off .
this gown we created for our client was very much a dior inspired creation, the time of year was october, she choose a beautiful crimson color to match the glorious fall colors. i think our custom designed french tea dress worked perfectly on her petite frame. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
so much love between this special bride and her mom, it was so much fun to have mother and daughter fittings, i just know beautiful memories we’re created 👩👧

I think our brides are some of the most gorgeous women ever! look how stuning christina is in her custom gown created by my team and i.
christina is in love with the designer , “christian dior” and in-fact works for the company in there corporate office. that couture 1950 - 60 “s theme was present through out her whole wedding day. dior is known for extraordinary fit , gorgeous sculpted details and magnificent bows🎀
needless to say this gown had it all.
When i say it's all in the details i mean it! my team and i sew every little detail from the crystals and rhinestones to the intricate hem lines.
we truly give a custom designed experience like no other to our brides.
no detail is too small or too big for our #valencienneteam!
We specialize in custom gowns, but we do carry a select few of other artisans.
along with the @rikidalal_bridal collection, we also carry @elsacorsi's stunning handcrafted crystal jewelry.
we had a trunk show last month where she flew in from #vancouver to meet our #valenciennebride's! we love pairing our custom dresses with her gorgeous jewels.
Being someone's first love may be great...but to be their last is beyond perfect.♥️
Hi! 👋🏻i’m kim! lead designer and owner of valencienne bridal. for over 35 years i’ve been dreaming up couture dresses for brides and their mothers.
i’ve been married for 8 years and of course designed my own wedding gown and sonia our head seamstress lovingly patterned and sewed it together. it was silver lavender and was the most luxurious silk peau du soie fabric.
my favorite things are a good cup of tea, my bed head pyjamas and my fur baby maggie curled up beside me.
days off are seldom in the wedding industry. i am working very hard to create some work, home balance. (it’s a work in progress) so when that happens; i will be in the garden , reading a thriller, walking maggie or binge watching netflix . however if time permits, like a holiday it will always be a scuba diving trip. this is my other true love other than my husband lol 🌊
Where are my autumn brides at?
we are the exclusive retailer of the @rikidalal_bridal collection.
she leaves us drooling over her designs every single time.
if you want a unique design for your wedding day, but don't have time for a custom dress from us, this is a great option! come try one on!
these sleeves are beautiful for a fall day, don't you think?
After over 35 years in the business, i feel so blessed to have created hundreds of custom pieces for brides and bridesmaids.
each and every single bride has signed our boutique's ledger.
a special book that sits on our pink marble top desk. this book holds every signature of every bride since 1986.
i love looking back and reading over the memories from everyone. what a special keepsake we have at the shop that a few more brides got to sign this long weekend!
So many brides choosing their fabrics this long weekend! how do you even begin to choose fabrics for your wedding dress?
i pride our shop in using only the best, most luxurious fabrics. i've sourced silk fabrics from all over the world to perfectly enhance the styles of our gowns that we craft in the studio. only the bests for our #valenciennebride's!
❤️ so blessed that all our brides are the sweetest souls.
