Testimonials & Reviews

"There aren't enough words to describe just how amazing it was to work with Phuong!

She is such a warm soul with an awe-inspiring talent. ALL of her work is gorgeous, and she invests so much time and detail into each piece. The passion radiates from her. She LOVES what she does and seeing that passion in action is a rare attribute to come by. I was excited each time I got to go and visit her for my fittings!

My dress was absolutely everything I wanted it to be. I still can't believe it. Her dresses are so unique and tailored to each woman in a way that speaks to them and what makes us each feel so beautiful - nothing is more special than that. Thank you for making me feel like a star!"- Vicky C. (WA, USA)

"I was searching for the perfect dress and Dream Dresses by PMN delivered!  I first started shopping at local boutiques, yet every dress I tried on had me "settling" in some way, none had all the features I wanted, so I decided to find someone to make my "dream dress" for me.  I found the PMN designs online and decided order my dress this way.  I couldn't try it on, since I am located across the country from this designer, and I wouldn't see it until about a month before my wedding, so it was a risky choice in bridal world!  For less than the cost of most of the designer gowns I tried on, I had my dream dress, bolero and cathedral length veil custom made to perfection.  The owner, Phuong, was such a delight to work with as well, always answering every question I had quickly and she was very patient and understanding with any concerns I had along the way. 
One of the coordinators at my wedding said she had not seen anything like my dress in the 28 years she had done weddings. If that is not a great endorsement, I don't know what is!   I highly recommend working with Phuong for your bridal needs, she is amazing."- Kristen S. (LA, USA) .                                                                                       
"Words cannot express the supreme talent and customer service of the staff at Dream Dresses by P.M.N.! Phuong came to my rescue when I realized I had no wedding gown 3 months before my wedding. (long story) I reached out to Phuong on April 7th and by June 4th not only did I have a gown in my hand but it was the most gorgeous, intricately beaded gown I had ever seen! I originally had my heart set on a $9000 designer gown (yes I know an insane price to pay for a wedding gown) and I would have still had to add to it because I didn't absolutely love everything about it. Phuong was able to fuse the features I loved from the designer gown along with some other preferences based on other gowns I had tried on, added some of mine and her own ideas, and together we created a completely new couture design with matching dramatic veil! Phuong's family told her it was THE BEST gown she had ever created to date!. The response from my guests was overwhelming as I actually received 3 offers to purchase my gown at my own wedding! Weird, but flattering at the same time. Phuong you are angel.Thank you for your patience and for truly giving me the gown of my dreams!" - Lady Mystic ( PA, USA )                                                                                                                                                       
"Phuong is not only an amazing tailor but also an amazing person to work with. There are a lot of forces conspiring when you are managing and planning a big event and many things can not go as planned. That is why you need someone you completely trust and that is willing to go above and beyond for you trough your journey. I have bought three (3) amazing custom made dresses from Phuong and she is not only an artist with an amazing talent but also she makes sure your questions are answered and your requests seriously analyzed so she always provides you with options. The less expensive, the more detailed, the more couture. If you are shopping for someone to do your wedding dress or a gala dress, I can assure you that you will not find someone like Phuong easily. She is a treasure and definitely and ally to your dreams." - Maria Mendiola Fernandez (Chief International Officer and Senior Vice President - DC, USA) .                                                                                                                                                                                                      
DREAM DRESSES BY PMN-CUSTOM WEDDING DRESS "Like another review stated, I wanted a beautiful and unique wedding dress for a reasonable price but I wanted a nice quality fabric and look. My favorite designer was Inbal Dror and the classic lines of Dream Dresses by PMN reminded me of this designer and allowed for an affordable custom design. Phuong delivered a dress that was unique, high quality work and fabrics, and was a dream to work with! She spent quite a long time speaking with me and exchanging pictures via email and text (I live too far away from her to come to her shop) and then as I thought of additional things or had questions she would always promptly respond and implement any changes. My dress came and was AMAZING but the seamstress here in Nashville measured me wrong so I needed just a slight alteration. Then, the seamstress here RUINED MY DRESS! Phuong was once again immediately available (she was actually texting me from a conference immediately seeking a solution to my problem and soothing my tears) and upon recognizing that the dress had to be completely remade with only a week and half until the wedding- worked tirelessly to meet the deadline and was flexible with our financial constraints. The second dress came in the mail a few days before the wedding and was a PERFECT FIT and was somehow even more beautiful than the first dress. I have told everyone I know about Dream Dresses by PMN and any special events that I may need a dress again in the future I will be ordering from her. I encourage you to trust your big day to Phuong. She will make your dream dress come true!"- Nicole N. (FL, USA)
 "I never had to deal with the all-too-familiar insanity that goes along with searching for the perfect wedding dress. I always had a vision of what I wanted to wear, and I was lucky to have stumbled upon Dream Dresses by P.M.N early on. When I saw her work online, I was floored. Every single dress on her old Etsy shop spoke to me. I knew I had to work with this one. 
I was right. Working with Phuong was an absolute pleasure, from the initial consult to the day I picked up my dress. She was always responsive, despite her extremely busy schedule. She listened to what I had to say about what I wanted to see. She made sure I was going to be happy with what I was getting and worked with me through a few major design changes I wanted to implement after she had already sketched the original dress. I never had to stress -- she made it so easy. 
As a person, she is the biggest sweetheart ever, too. She is thoughtful and cares about the people she works with. 
The final product? Perfection. I didn't want to take it off after putting it on during my final fitting! It was exactly what I had in mind. Really, I couldn't be any happier with the entire transaction, and I got what I wanted, 100%.
Thank you, Phuong, for my beautiful dress that I can't wait to wear, and for the experience as a whole!" - Claudine M. (WA, USA).     
  "I absolutely LOVE my wedding dress and can't wait to wear it on my day!!!! I became a bit exhausted and stressed out after going to a few local bridal stores and I couldn't seem to find something I absolutely loved. After not finding anything in stores, my family suggested getting it custom made. However, that option became very difficult as well because most places I went to said they either couldn't design what I was describing, would take too long, or would be too costly to make. I then decided to hold off for a little bit on my dress before I overwhelmed myself. Then out of nowhere, a close friend was talking about Etsy and how I should look around there. I started to look and found Phuong. We chatted for a little while and after sending her pictures and descriptions of the dress I was envisioning, she quickly made a quick sketch for me that included every little detail I had told her. Phuong was great to work with because she was so patient and responded to all my questions! Her work is very detail oriented and professional. After receiving my dress a few weeks ago, I did not want to take it off. It does need a couple alterations but nothing major. Overall, I am super happy I found Dream Dresses by P.M.N because they made my dream wedding dress come true!!! " -Taleesha S. (USA) 
 " Phuong is a very talented designer. She listened to what i wanted and created my dream wedding dress. I was curious how this was all going to work out with her being so far away. However, having my measurements taken accurately and the ease of communicating with Phuong really was instrumental in the perfect fitting dress arriving. I would highly recommend her."-Brenda D. (WA, USA)
"If you are hesitating having your wedding dress, or any dress for that matter, made by Phuong, stop wasting your time and just go ahead and order with her! Not only is her attention to detail impeccable, but she truly is just a sweet and easy person to work with. After months of searching, I found photos of my dream dress on eBay, just to be disappointed when the various vendors sent me photos of their actual product and it looked nothing like the display photos! I finally tracked down the original dress, only to find that it cost $13,000 and thus was way out of my price range!!!! I was about to give up and just settle for a pretty dress, but luckily I found Phuong. She not only brought my dream dress to life, but she exceeded my expectations. I love the dress she made for me more than the one in the photos I sent her! I was worried at first, because I had to send her my measurements since we don't live in the same time. I flew out to Kirkland, and the dress practically fit me like a glove! She's truly an artist, and I'm convinced there is no dress she can't make."-Sequoria D. (CO, USA)
Dream Dresses by PMN "5 stars isn't enough for the love I have for Dream Dresses by PMN. Phuong is incredible and so nice. I stumbled on her website just by googling and when I found THE dress I was excited to find that she was also in the Pacific Northwest. Every interaction I had with her through the entire process of buying my dress was warm and also professional.
Just by the details in her gowns alone you can tell that she loves what she does and is great at it. Her warm/calm personality was SO much better to work with than the pushy girls that work in bridal shops. You can tell that Phuong really wants you to get the dress that is best for you. Loved every part of my experience with Dream Dresses by PMN! " - Morgan W. (WA, USA)

Dream Dresses by PMN-custom wedding dress "Everything about my experience with Phuong was 5 stars. Like many brides I struggled to find any dress I liked in a reasonable price range . No matter where I looked I felt like I was making major compromises. My favorite designers were Galia Lahav, Inbal Dror and Pnina Tornai I couldn’t get either of them anywhere near my budget. I found Phuong on Etsy, and I am so glad I did. I loved her designs. I am lucky enough to live near her, and I was able to see her dresses in person before deciding what to order. I found her designs so unique and beautiful that I ended up ordering one of them (with a few tweaks) instead of asking her to copy another dress I had in mind. I loved her dresses because not only are they beautiful, but they are much lighter than most dresses I tried on in the stores, and the fabrics and beading seem much higher quality. My dress turned out perfectly. After receiving it she made sure it fit just right, was able to bustle, and was the correct length. She has extreme attention to detail and made sure the dress had everything I asked for. I can’t wait to wear it on my wedding day. Phuong is very good at communicating throughout the process. She always responded quickly to my emails, and she sent pictures of my dress as it was being made. I am also very glad I got the chance to meet her because she is so sweet. She really really cares about her work and that her clients are happy. Thank you Phuong!" -Sara P. (WA, USA)

"Thank you for my beautiful custom designed wedding dress phuong! It's exactly how I imagined it to look and you created it right on the dot. Phuong is very reliable, easy to communicate with, and ships the item in a very timely manner. This one beautiful piece that she created for me for the wedding will last a lifetime of memories and I am thankful I found you to make that great memory possible." - Jen T. (CA, USA)

"Searching for the perfect wedding dress is one of the most stressful parts of planning a wedding. Working with Phuong was one of the best decisions I made. My dress ended up being absolutely perfect. She was extremely responsive to emails and worked with me when I changed my mind on some of the final details. Amazing dress. Awesome experience."- Amanda T. (TX, USA)
" I wondered how I would EVER find a dress I truly loved.... I tried on SO many and being an editor for a Bridal magazine I was able to try the top dresses available.... Nothing really made me feel like "this is MY dress".... But then I found PMN Dresses.... The dress she made was EXACTLY to my specifications, she was so easy to work with, and it was pretty effortless once I sent my measurements! I can't even begin to tell people.... THIS is the only place someone should get a dress! Amazing quality in materials, clean lines, good stitching.... Better than other designers I tried on from around the world." - Alyson M. (FL, USA)
"Phuong, you're INCREDIBLE! you're a Godsend! You made my wedding dress DREAM COME TRUE! Your dresses make me want to get married again and again (to Chad, of course!) I could not be happier with any other gown. People constantly tell me that my dress is the most beautiful dress they had ever seen. And I have you to thank!" - ChisaChis Harris Hornbaker (DE, USA)
"Not only was Phuong extremely sweet and helpful, but WOW! I'd seen her dresses in photos online, but nothing prepared me for how absolutely breath taking they were in person! I've "Pinterested" a lot of dresses, but I have yet to find one on there that I like as much as I liked all of her dresses. Beautiful and intricate designs, soft and high quality material and all the dresses I tried on we're very light and comfortable! It was also great to find a designer who's sample dresses run on the smaller side as I am very petite!

I will definitely recommend her to anyone wants to a beautiful wedding dress or an evening gown. Hands down, the best designer I've had the pleasure of working with. I will definitely be going back to her any time I need a dress for a special occasion!" - Aakanksha Gavali (WA, USA)

 "I am so in love with my wedding gown! I'm so happy Phuong put my dream dress into reality. I am a very particular person. I had a really hard time finding THE dress, but I'm glad I met Phuong and she helped me create my wedding dress! I am so happy I was able to tell her what I wanted and she made it happen plus more! The details and the flow of my gown were perfect! Everyone said my dress was amazing! Which it truly is! But to me, the dress is just a cherry on top... what I love most about this experience is meeting someone with such genuine & kind personality. I drove to Seattle to meet her in person... Phuong is the nicest woman you will ever meet. She made this experience so much more fun for me! I wish I had met her a lot sooner! Thank God for you Phuong! God bless your heart. - Lei Valdriz (Edmonton, Canada)
"I received my dress yesterday and I LOVE IT!!!!! It's just what I described to Phuong at Dream Dresses by PMN when we first started talking. The details on the dress are incredible! I need a few alterations done to the dress but nothing major. When I first started talking to her, I was a little nervous because I had gone to local designers to see if the dress I envision could be made. Many told me no or it would take too long or it would be too costly. After talking to Phuong, she quickly made me a sketch and included everything I had mentioned to her and showed her in pictures. She was also very patient with me and would respond to my messages rather quickly. I can honestly say I can't wait until my big day so I can put my gorgeous dream dress on!!! :) Thank you Dream Dresses by PMN!" - Cristal Quezada (UT, USA)

It fits perfectly, feels so light and cool and looks amazing. The lace detail, beading and layering of fabric looks so whimsical! Phuong is so talented and is always so positive and kind. I couldn't imagine myself walking down the aisle in anything else! I would recommend Dream Dresses to any bride - especially those who don't think they can afford a custom dress! I am beyond happy with the service and dress I received from Dream Dresses by PMN!" - McKenzie Treviño (WA, USA)


"I had spent months endlessly searching for the perfect ao dai for my wedding. Everything I came across didn't even come close to what I wanted. Then one day I came across Phuong's Instagram for PMN dresses. I fell in love. She was obviously very detail oriented. The dresses she makes are absolutely beautiful. I am so happy to say that she did indeed make me one of those beautiful dresses. I wore a red Ao dai that every single person endlessly asked me about. Thank you so much Phuong for making my dress. It fit perfectly and was a very special part of our wedding." - Darlene M. (NJ, USA)

Dream dresses by pmn "Phuong has been THE best experience throughout planning this wedding! She works within your budget, not upsetting you to a more expensive gown that you fall in love with but really can't afford. She is making my dream gown a reality, and at a price that cannot be beat. We literally sat down together with my Pinterest board and she had a sketch for me the very next day, using all my favorite elements of several gowns. I completely trust her expertise, advice and judgment and she has been a joy to work with so far. My gown is ready in 3 weeks - I just cannot wait to see what she's done. I'm sure it's going to be beyond my wildest dreams and fit perfectly! I highly recommend skipping all the gown shopping at boutiques and RUNNING straight to Phuong! UPDATE: 6/15/15 -- I just went to my first fitting and saw my gown for the first time. Yes, I cried like a baby it was so beautiful and every detail was perfect. In fact, it fit so well that I just took it home straight away, without any alterations necessary. Phuong is the kindest, sweetest person I've met. I wish she could come to the wedding to see her work on my wedding day!" - Judi P. (WA, USA)

 Dream Dresses by PMN "My dresses were beauty. Phuong did an amazing job, especially accommodating me from far away out of state. Her skills were amazing and my dresses fit perfectly. My dresses were the highlight of the wedding!" -Tran T. (FL, USA) 

 "I was referred to Phuong to make a wedding style Ao Dai. She was very responsive and patient with me while I asked her questions and made decisions on materials and style. She sent me pictures throughout the process and honored my requests to modify certain parts of the design after seeing them produced. All in all a pleasant experience." -Alexandria N. (CA, USA)

Custom Red Ao Dai-Dream Dresses by PMN "I contacted Phuong in hopes of creating a custom Vietnamese gown (ao dai) for my wedding. Phuong delivered in every way possible. From the very beginning, I knew this would be a pleasant experience. Phuong was very responsive, professional, and kind. Phuong provided excellent customer service through her detail oriented work ethic. The gown arrived last week and I could not be more excited and pleased with the result. The gown has exceeded all of my expectations and I will wear it proudly on my wedding day!"-Thuy Nguyen (WI-USA)

Custom Ao Dai-Dream Dresses by PMN "Phuong made a mother-of-the-bride traditional Vietnamese long dress for me. It was exactly what I envisioned it. She was very responsive and answered all my questions. She kept me informed along the process. I lived in Maryland when I placed my dress order with PMN. The measurement sheet was very detailed and provided clear instructions on how to measure. I told the kind of dress I wanted, the color and the type of material. Before making the dress, she sent me a picture of the dress material and color to make sure it matched what I wanted. She was right on the spot.
When the dress was done, she sent me a picture of it with a model wearing it. It was beautiful. She informed me when she mailed the dress to me with a tracking number.  The dress came on time. It fits me perfectly. I didn't need any final alterations. I am very pleased with Phuong and her team. The service was excellent. The response time was quick. Most importantly, Phuong was very professional and sincere. I would definitely recommend PMN to my friends.
BTW, PMN also made a dress for my daughter, the bride. It's incredibly beautiful. I am so pleased and very fortunate to have found PMN to design and made our dresses. Wishing PMN all the best as I know your business will be successful."-Gina N. (MD, USA)
