A Sustainable Wedding Dress

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do here at AH, all of our designs (including every single sample) has been beautifully made by our in house seamstresses.

An archive Sample dress is a wonderfully sustainable choice for your wedding dress, if you have considered renting your wedding dress we would highly recommend exploring our sample options. Not only will you be purchasing a dress that already exists but there are no limitations when it comes to fitting your design. Our experienced in house team can work with you to ensure your dress fits you like a glove for your special day.

Alongside this, we encourage all of our brides to revisit us after their wedding day to make use of our amazing Post Wedding Alterations Service. Here, you can transform your sample dress once more to create everyday staples for your wardrobe. Why not make your dress into a top and skirt? Or shorten the length to wear time and time again?
