elleNelle Bridal's designer: Chicago native Leah Langley-McClean moved to Nashville and entered the bridal scene in 2015 when she was struggling to find a dress for her own wedding, resulting in a couture look that she made for herself. Frustrated by size selection, elleNelle Bridal was born to celebrate women's curves — and it gets even better. Everything in the collection — which includes bridesmaid dresses and mother of the bride dresses — is custom made in the US ethically and sustainably.
The elleNelle Bride: is very clean and chic — an intersection between modern and classic. The elleNelle bride loves fashion and cares about sustainability.
elleNelle Bridal's Current Mission: "We start our design process with a very in-depth consultation, where we review inspiration, discuss fabric selections, and make a custom sketch on a silhouette of the bride's own body to give her a better sense of how her custom gown will look on her shape. From there, brides are very involved in the process, receiving fabric swatches and getting to see the evolution of their dress through videos, photos, and fittings," Leah told POPSUGAR. Right now, consultations are being offered virtually, and the company has just begun reintroducing in-person consultations to local Nashville clients with safety precautions in place.
