Vancouver Bridal Shop | Testimonials

"The Persephone dress is exactly like shown in the pictures and of very high quality! I fell in love with the details and it’s unique style even more once it arrived and had only a few alterations to be done. It will be perfect for our garden/ beach destination. Before ordering online, a lot of fears came into my mind, but Hrissa found solutions for all of them to calm my nerves and to assure everything would be ok if my worst case scenarios would appear (but they didn’t! :-). She made everything to accommodate me and ordering from her rather felt like interacting with a friend. When ordering online it naturally can be nerve racking until you receive your dress, but Elika in love is the best way to do it and I can recommend it to anybody!!! Can’t wait to add pictures after the wedding in August, this dress is so stunning!”

Franziska wore the Persephone in White -Berlin Germany-


"I couldn't have asked for a better wedding dress shopping experience! I wasn't looking for a 'typical' wedding gown, so when I saw the Hera dress I immediately knew it was "the one". I was also wanted a dress that could be used as a formal/evening dress after the wedding. Hrissa was so accommodating. She made the entire dress (including the thread) out of pure silk so that I can dye it a different color after the wedding. When I was in Vancouver, she invited me to her studio to discuss the dress further and to take exact measurements. Once the dress arrived and I tried it on for the first time it fit absolutely perfect! There was a minor miscommunication with the design of the bottom half but I was still so pleased with it and Hrissa offered to fix it. Overall I would without a doubt highly recommend buying a dress from Hrissa!”

Heather wore a custom Hera gown in white -Tofino Canada-


"Another fabulous custom made dress by Hrissa. This is the second dress I've purchased from her and I couldn't be more pleased with the craftsmanship, attention to detail, and quality. Although this dress arrived only a day before I needed it by, it fit perfectly and was just stunning. The low back and unique bunching at the front is extremely sexy. I easily wear it without a bra and I never feel uncomfortable. I also had the fabric changed to raw dupioni silk and I love how the fabric stays a little more stiff. With exceptional customer service and quality, I wouldn't hesitate to buy another dress from Hrissa!”

Heather bought a second custom Hera dress in Black -Calgary Canada-


"This skirt has been my staple for years. I have small nightmares of one day not having it anymore and so I contacted Hrissa and pleaded for a redo. She was kind and helpful and kept me informed through the whole process about material, specifics and timing. It fits like magic. It is Magic. Thank you!!!”

Alex wore the Delphi in Silver -Barcelona Spain-


I travelled from London to Paris to try on one of Hrissa's magical 'Elika in Love' dresses. From the first contact to the last, Hrissa was incredibly professional. She helped me feel at home in an unknown foreign city - and the dress itself was simply gorgeous. Just the boho, delicate individuality I had previously been searching high and low for! I really can't recommend Hrissa highly enough”

Zoe wore the Crete in Ivory. -London UK-


If you love this dress, do not hesitate to buy is sheer perfection and even more lovely in person as in the photos...I was hesitant to buy a wedding dress I had never tried on, but honestly I couldn't be happier. I love knowing my dress was handmade and is so unique, that there aren't many like it out there - its sexy and form fitting, the train is so beautiful, it makes me feel just like the description says, effortlessly beautiful-carefree, daring, relaxed and confident. This is a youthful, and addicting dress that you just can't get enough of. If you are like me and love the pictures, buy this dress - you won't be sorry. It arrived literally the exact day it was supposed to - an exact month before my planned wedding day...Hrissa has been sensitive to my needs during the process, helpful, professional, and enthusiastic.”

Luna from wore the Persephone in Ivory. -Sydney Australia- 


"I had this gorgeous dress made for my wife as an anniversary gift. I was nervous about having such a form-fitting couture piece made based on emailed measurements but Hrissa was amazing! We customized the piece to suit her tastes, lowering the back and creating a slightly deeper drop to create a very subtle high low effect which made this piece even more sexy - if that is possible! I had a tight timeline and, even with the altered design, Hrissa got the piece to me on time - creating one of the best anniversary gifts yet! ... Kathryn says it is her new favourite LBD and we'd recommend Elika In Love to anyone who wants a standout, perfectly fitted design."
