“I cannot speak higher of Judith at Judith Penak Couture. I had my dream wedding dresses made by Judith, and her attention to detail and patience with me was outstanding. She made the process of making the most important dress of my life effortless. I was quite apprehensive about having a dress made without trying anything like it on first, but Judith was able to picture and design exactly what I dreamt of! Judith met with me several times - many more than I would have expected. Nothing was too much to ask! I now look back on photos and absolutely love my timeless dress designed and made by Judith. I could not have been happier with the final product!” - Sabrina V.

Judith was so lovely to work with and really made my vision for my wedding dress come to life. She really listened to what I wanted, gave suggestions when I was unsure of something and happily made some adjustments I requested as we went along. I had been really anxious about the process of having a dress designed and made for me but it was truely beautiful. Thank you Judith!

Thank you very much Kylie for this lovely review. It was a pleasure to work with you and make your dream dress come to life! Have a great day!

Everything went very well. She made all effort to try to understand exactly what I wanted. We spent as much as time as I needed to get it perfect. The result was great and exactly what I wanted.

Hello Meiling, thank you very much for this great review, it was a pleasure to work with you !

December 2015

After our first meeting I cancelled my other appointments, as I knew Judith was the right person for the job. The appointments were really enjoyable, & funny! It is strange and exciting creating your own wedding dress, and Judith's personality, knowledge and experience made my experience more enjoyable. Thank you!

I was referred to Judith via D’Italia. She did an amazing job creating the style of dress that I had in mind for my wedding. It was simple and sleek. Thanks Judith!

I was referred to Judith through D'Italia. I had 4.5 weeks until my wedding when I first met Judith and she worked with me to understand what I wanted. She arranged for weekly trials to ensure everything was going to plan and that I was happy. And boy did she deliver! I loved my final dress!

What length dress for a 4pm wedding for mother of the groom?

My son is getting married at 4pm, wondering what is an appropriate length dress to wear for this time of day?

Judith Penak Couture

. Formal weddings require  dress or pantsuit, while the outfit can be more relaxed for a casual wedding. In general, the mother of the groom should wear something comfortable and flattering. Go for a look that shows off your style—there's no reason you can't wear an of-the-moment trend or your go-to silhouette.

How many wedding dress appointments will I need?

Hi there. Wondering how many wedding dress appointments I should be factoring into my planning, including fittings and pickup? And how long they normally go for? Thanks.
