Katrina Tuttle knows that just because not all brides are looking for a Kleinfeld’s experience doesn’t mean they have an exact vision of the dress that’ll make them say “hell yes.” The local dress designer turned her focus to bridal about a year a go with Katrina Tuttle Bridal, offering handmade, custom gown designs to betrothed beauties across Canada, and this week she’ll preview her latest collection of made-to-measure dresses—a happy medium between custom and pre-made.

“We’re still taking the hands on process of making the gowns fit you perfectly during the construction process,” she says. “It still has that personal feel, little tweaks can be made to fit your taste but it’s a neat option to be able to have in addition to custom design.”

Whether you’re still coming down from that romantic Valentine’s engagement (congrats!) or you’ve spent the last six months agonizing over choosing the dress, you can find Tuttle and her 12 new designs at Sweet Pea Boutique’s (1542 Queen Street) ultra-romantic special event, A Bridal Evening. On February 18 (6-9pm), she’ll be joined by local bridal/bridesmaid jewellery-maker Harper & Honey as well as Polka Dot Cakes for a night of fun “filled with all things lace and tulle, and champagne and yummy sweets” says Tuttle.

And as for the gowns? “It will walk through everything from sleek silhouettes to ballgowns. It’s a well-rounded collection, so every brides young vision can be showcased. I played around with some colour, so there’ll be hints of champagne, peach, pastel colours and classic off whites. And lace and lots of tulle. I love tulle.”
