I've always thought about customizing my own wedding dress. As someone who has unique tastes and a background in the fashion industry (I've been to more bridal shows than I can count!), I've explored the possibilities, and am well aware that custom online bridal site Anomalie is one of them. Launched by Leslie Voorhees Means and her husband, the brand uses DressBuilder technology to help brides create whatever silhouette they're envisioning with made-to-measure tailoring. That eliminates the stress of paying for tweaks through multiple fittings, and it also encourages women to mix and match details they love or have seen before, culminating in an experience that presents them with their dream dress. Can you imagine?

As always, I like to hear from real women who have tested the process and brought their sketches to life. Anomalie has helped half a million brides craft a dress they felt good about wearing down the aisle, and five of them shared their stories exclusively with POPSUGAR. Anomalie's custom dresses cost, on average, around $1,600, and none of the gowns you see here ring in over $2K. This was a huge draw for many of the women who chose Anomalie, as most bespoke wedding dresses can cost $10K or more. My favorite detail? There's no standard sizing at Anomalie — just your own personal measurements and the right amount of fabric to flatter your figure. If you want to hear more (as I'm sure you do), keep reading to see how these brides made out, and read about their journey in design from start to finish.
