Each and every Amy Kuschel gown is made in our San Francisco design studio, located on the floor above our flagship salon at 23 Grant Avenue in the Union Square district.
We are proud to offer several fabrications that are made in the United States. We also import many of the fabrics used in the Amy Kuschel Bride collection from Europe and Asia. We select the highest quality laces available from the United States, France, and Italy. Our silk mikado, silk gloss organza, and silk gazar are also imported from Italy. We've found quite unique fabrications in England as well. Several of our silk satins and organzas are imported from Japan and China.
It's our goal to find textiles that are beautiful, luxurious to the touch, and of the highest quality.
While we no longer offer sample sale gowns in our San Francisco Salon, we sometimes offer gowns in "limited availability" fabrics from our design room and overstock. These offeringa are available at reduced prices. Great value and custom made to your measurements in San Francisco!

Most gowns within our collection are available in 2 different sizes for trying on, typically a size 6 and a 10/12.
During your appointment, we will do our best to temporarily alter the fit of each gown by clipping, adjusting, or extending to suggest the appropriate fit that you can expect once a gown is customized for you.
Most gowns within the Amy Kuschel Bride collection are offered in a shade of white and ivory. Each silk fabrication has its own subtle version ranging from soft white to antique white, pale candlelight hues of ivory to true ivory and deep ivory. Reflection also plays a part in color; shinier fabrics may seem lighter in color due to the 'light' radiating from the weave whereas matte finish fabrications highlight the true shade. Luxurious color accents are available on several styles with sashes or underlays.
All brides will receive a care card with their finished gown with details about gown handling and pressing. Please review our recommended vendors for professional dry cleaning options
Our bridal gowns range in price from $1500 to $6500 with most styles falling within the range of $2000 - $3000. All of our bridal gowns are designed and made in San Francisco, California. Brides visiting our flagship salon in San Francisco will order their gown to be custom-made to their measurements; this is included in the price of the gown.
While we do not offer custom designed wedding gowns for individual clients, we have achieved great success with slight design modifications to styles within our couture collection. When you visit our salon, one of our stylists will work closely with you to find the fit, fabrication, and customized detailing that will best fit you and your wedding day.
We will collect a deposit for half of your pre-tax order total when you order your Amy Kuschel gown. Payments can be made by check, debit card, or credit card; we accept American Express, Visa, and MasterCard.
The balance of your payment is due at your 1st fitting.
With the increasing popularity of beach and garden weddings, more and more brides are requesting that the train on their gown be shortened or entirely removed. If you are ordering a custom made Amy Kuschel Bride gown, we can alter your pattern to modify or eliminate the train from most of our designs. We will work with each bride individually to determine the appropriate train length and adjust the pattern accordingly. Additional charges often apply.
