Nancy Barrus Couture    

The Avenía Bridal Boutique and Design Studio is pleased to be the exclusive house of Nancy Barrus Couture, which means that in addition to carrying top designer bridal collections, Avenía specializes in designing original, hand-crafted gowns for brides desiring to create a fashion experience reflective of their own unique style and individuality.  Nancy Barrus and her staff are expert at capturing your vision, suggesting design elements influenced by the haute couture of top European and New York designers, and tastefully tailoring your creation to any religious or cultural considerations.  

Nancy Barrus is a couturier renowned for creating original gowns ranging from traditional and historically inspired styles and themes to the contemporary and avant-garde.  For more than thirty years, discriminating brides have entrusted Nancy and her staff of expert designers and seamstresses to design, tailor and alter their wedding gowns.  

Nancy and her staff have distinguished themselves by providing flawless design and craftsmanship, impeccable attention to detail, and a passion for bridal couture and customer satisfaction that have won the loyalty of even the most discriminating and fashion-conscious brides.  Drawing inspiration from your vision, Nancy and her staff offer their extensive experience and artistry to create a gown representative of your unique style and creativity.

Brides have other options for high-end couture, but come to us for the ‘Avenía experience’, which consists of our investment in a long-term relationship, warm and attentive service, and inspirational design and customization.  In addition to custom designing and creating original couture gowns, Nancy and her staff of expert seamstresses enable Avenía to stand apart from other bridal boutiques by offering customization and alteration services distinguished by its tasteful elegance and inspired craftsmanship. 

An essential part of the Avenía experience is tailoring designer gowns to your unique shape, style and specifications.  Avenía brides frequently request that a couture gown be altered or built up to accommodate religious or cultural considerations, such as Latter-Day Saint or LDS brides requesting temple-ready or ‘modest’ alterations.   Several of the designers we carry have agreed to build up their gowns with shoulders and sleeves to your measurements, which eliminates alteration lines.  With all other designers we have made arrangements to source original fabrics, thereby enabling Nancy and our expert seamstresses to retain and accentuate the elegance and artistry of your gown.

Above all, the Avenía experience is about the fulfillment of dreams and aspirations, and the creation of lifelong memories created in an atmosphere of elegance, refinement, sophistication and warmth; an environment that—from the exterior to the interior, and from the décor to the staff—is uniquely Avenía.
