    Saved My Wedding!

    Sara saved my sanity. I made the mistake of buying a dress online (one of those made-to-order ones). Well, it arrived late and with some serious issues. The materials and design were very good, but there were bulging seams, a tear, some very incorrect measurements etc...and not much time to have it fixed.

    Despite the fact that I didn't buy the dress with her, Sara got it fixed up with time to spare. She was so sweet to work with too. The dress ended up looking great, and I didn't have to buy a replacement last-minute.

    I wish I had shopped locally, the costs of altering a dress with a professional bridal seamstress are about what you'd expect with dresses that are so detailed and layered...fixing a seam (or several) in one of those areas requires a LOT of time and experience.

    Sara's shop also had lovely dresses on display, and she was so nice and professional. I'm extremely happy with my experience there.

Founder and Designer

I have over 20 years of experience designing, making, and altering wedding dresses. I used to own a bridal store by the Caspian Sea, and couldn't resist form starting another here in Vancouver after I moved here.

What makes me happiest is helping people feel and look amazing on their special days.


My grandfather was a tailor, so my exposure to clothes-making started young. Eventually, as a teenager, I taught myself to sew by reading magazines and brochues about fashion design and sewing. I spent a lot of my free time altering my own clothes as practice, and I eventually made my own clothes.

In my twenties, I used to teach a sewing and clothes-making class. More than 10 years of teaching later, I finally started my own wedding dress boutique in my hometown by the Caspian Sea. I personally designed and custom-made dresses for hundreds of people for 12 years.‍

In May 2018, I opened Alma Bridal in Downtown Vancouver to continue chasing my passion–to help people feel beautiful on their special days.
