My husband and I were married in a lovely outdoor wedding in September 2013, and Ivy proved to be an ESSENTIAL member of my wedding team. Her styling services are exceptional, and we could never have pulled off the cohesive, head-to-toe beautiful look we achieved without her. As a bride, there were a million things to worry about and organize. Having Ivy there throughout the process to coordinate the overall look and accessories for the groomsmen, the groom, the bridesmaids, and me was such a relief.
Once I had my dress, the next big challenge was selecting a dress for my bridesmaids and finding just the right jewelry and shoes for all of us to wear on the big day. It was important to me that my bridesmaids be comfortable and feel beautiful, each with her own unique look, but still presenting a cohesive picture. With Ivy’s help, we picked different styles of dresses in slightly different fabrics, all the same color and length. Ivy then found beautiful custom-made jewelry that perfectly coordinated with the dresses as well as each of my bridesmaids’ individual style preferences. We then found shoes that seemed made for the jewelry. The overall look was flawless.
When it came to my shoes and jewelry, Ivy did all the work. For shoes, I knew I wanted a sparkly low-wedge heel – a somewhat non-traditional bridal shoe, and Ivy was able to find that exact shoe in NYC. I never would have found that perfect shoe on my own. In terms of jewelry, Ivy and I consulted about what I liked and didn’t like. She then came to one of my early fittings with a variety of different earrings and bracelets for me to try with the dress. It was great to see the whole look together to figure out exactly which jewelry worked best. Ivy helped me figure out my hair and make-up and was there every step of the way during fittings and hair and make-up consultations. On the day of the wedding, Ivy was there, helping everyone in the wedding party get ready, and prepared with every possible fashion fix you can imagine. With Ivy there, we could let loose, relax, and take comfort in knowing that she would make sure we all looked just right.

I had it in my head that I wanted a bespoke suit for the rehearsal dinner and a new tux, properly tailored, for the wedding. Aside from that, I really had no idea what I wanted and how to get it. Ivy took me from zero to 100, holding my hand through fabric choices, shirt patterns, button locations, tie selection, shoes, and even socks. Not only that but she managed to ensure that my 5 irresponsible groomsmen (and responsible brother-in-law) had properly-fitting, good-looking, coordinated tuxes that were in the dressing room on the wedding day. She left nothing to chance. She worked with each of them to make sure they went to fittings, and she personally picked up all of the tuxes and brought them to our wedding location. She stayed on hand to ensure we were all properly put-together, and displayed exceptional patience dealing with my groomsmen. 10/10 would use again.
