Here's what one U.S. bride had to say about the experience with Northwic… "As a creative and alternative bride, I had a vision for a very unique wedding dress. The delicate and nearly unrealistic design I had in mind was a dream, and going into the process of finding a dressmaker, I was fearful that it would only ever be a dream. I had sent messages to several dressmakers and I received multiple responses that it just couldn't be done and a few just ignored my inquiry entirely. When I received a response from Northwic, not only were they up for the task but they were downright excited about it. That's when I knew this was the vendor to move forward with, and I am so infinitely glad that I did. Northwic's communication, understanding, and attention to detail went far above and beyond my expectations and was everything I could have hoped for. They were prompt with responses, straightforward and honest, true to and respectful of my design and above all, confident and passionate about the project throughout the entire process. They took every precaution to ensure that I received a perfect product and I will confidently speak to the fact that an absolutely perfect product was delivered." – Lauren, custom Raven wedding dress Ooh, a reader discount!
