Alix & Kelly-Unique Bridesmaids

As in the style of JCrew where you can only order their collections on-line,there are many other companies following in pace.

Alix & Kelly’s line is for the bride that is looking to buy dresses that their bridesmaids can wear again.  Most of the dress structures can be found in local bridal boutiques by other designers if you are worried about purchasing online.  We did find however, when visiting their  site 2 silhouettes that are difficult to find.


These two dresses are made from 100% Jersey Silk and run around $350.00.  This price decreases the more dresses you purchase.  Alix & Kelly have a large collection of different color swatches to pick from and you can order a swatch on-line for $5.00.


All of their dresses are made to order and take about 12 weeks to come, which is the standard time frame.  Most dresses can be ordered up to size 18.

To find out additional information about Alix & Kelly please visit

In your search to find the perfect bridesmaid dress to fit all of “their” styles, Your Perfect Dress can help.  We specialize in assisting you, to ensure all of your girls are pleased with the gown picked.  Contact Maureen today to set-up a free consultation to go over your ideas. We offer affordable packages customized around your needs. No worries, we are here to help!

We at YPD believe that every bride deserves to look flawless on her wedding day, in a dress that she has envisioned since she was a little girl. A refined local business happens to feel the same way, as their passion is to give every one of their brides the ideal dress for her special day. This business is called The Wedding Seamstress.

The Wedding Seamstress specializes exclusively in formal dress alterations. They put a tremendous amount of time and commitment into each gown, whether it is a wedding dress, a bridesmaid’s gown, flower girl dress, or Mother of the bride gown. They provide their clients with a relaxing and calm environment in Olde Town Arvada, going as far as providing a wide array of complimentary delicious chocolates. It is safe to say that The Wedding Seamstress team makes it their mission to uphold standards far above any bride’s expectation.

One unique feature of the business is that the head seamstress, Deedee Vicory will sit down with any bride to create a custom made dress. From drawing the design to sewing the dress, Deedee truly pours her heart and soul into making the brides wishes a reality. Dresses are all specifically altered to give each bride the desired look for her wedding.

Deedee has been working in bridal for 16 years as well as acquiring an extensive background in the fashion and wedding industries. She has a love for the art of dressmaking and feels that, “the bride and her wedding dress are the centerpieces of the wedding.”

Deedee is a very talented and skilled seamstress, she could not have made The Wedding Seamstress what it is today without the help of her husband and co-owner, Justin Vicory. There is also a passionate team of seamstresses and apprentices ready to meet any needs the brides may have. Staff members wear an apron, custom-made to fit their individual personalities and to add color to the studio.

Deedee and Justin are currently leading their team in creating their own line of wedding gowns. The gowns will appear under a new label and will be sold exclusively at a new location. We will be sure to update our brides, with information about the new line as soon as it becomes available to us.

YPD is very excited to have the opportunity to introduce our brides to The Wedding Seamstress as they are a force that drives the Colorado bridal market. The shop’s outstanding work and customer service will be sure to put this business on every bride’s map. Deedee and her staff have worked endless hours to create a  name for their business. The craftsmanship exhibited by the staff has produced a strong reputation in the local bridal market. YPD is eager to see what the future holds for The Wedding Seamstress and what they have in store for the Colorado bride.
