Speaking to the transition of Nancy Barrus Couture from design studio to full-service bridal boutique, Avenía Bridal’s Artistic Director and distinguished couturier Nancy Barrus remarked, “For many years Nancy Barrus Couture has sought to provide the finest in custom bridal couture and alteration services to our clients. Along the way, we envisioned a way to better serve our customers by offering a single destination for designer bridal wear and custom couture. Avenía represents the realization of that dream.”

Fashion-conscious brides can now both imagine and create the centerpiece of their bridal experience in a full-service bridal boutique. Whether that involves working through one of Avenía’s expert consultants with the original designer to redesign a bodice and build up a gown in order to fit a bride’s unique size or style preferences, or to accommodate religious and cultural considerations; or sketching and creating a custom bridal gown from a bride’s imagination, we are thrilled to now be serving the wedding community as Avenía Bridal.”
