Susan,  Thank you sooooooo much!  I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful dress and bonnet!  I really am not a very excitable person, however, this whole process has been so wonderful! I was even more amazed with the bonnet!  Thank you for the gift!  You have done such a fabulous job.  I will definitely have this outfit dry cleaned and preserved.  I sincerely hope that if God blesses Ryleigh with a baby girl that she will be honored to have her wear it too.  Thank you again for everything!    Sincerely, Lynn 1/07/14















I just want to thank you again for my beautiful wedding dress. It was wonderful to go through the entire process of creating it with you; your passion and talent for design made it such an easy and enjoyable experience! You were so careful with every detail, from placement of the lace flowers on the dress to my gorgeous mantilla, personalized garter and perfect flower clip for my hair. I am so grateful that I was able to have everything made for such a reasonable cost, but it was all so much more meaningful and thus, priceless! Your work ensured that I was a beautiful bride and could have that perfect wedding day that girls wish for. Thank you! —Julia

Hi Susan!!
I’ve been dying to tell you how much of a success the dress was!! It was a gorgeous day so we were  able to get some great photos outdoors. I cant wait to show you. I know everyone always tells  the bride how beautiful she is but in addition there were so many comments about  the dress itself. The best was "How is that staying on you?" I thought you would appreciate that one. haha My response was simply, "Her name is Susan." I should have had copies of your business card made to hand them out at the  reception. The photos really speak for themselves how perfectly that dress was made for me. However, photos alone dont do it justice. It was truly a  masterpiece and I know how hard you worked to make that dress work! I cant  forget the bussle! It felt awsome to have a completely customized bussle, as if  the entire dress wasn't a custom piece! It made such a statement and I can't stop looking at the pictures wishing I was back in my dress already. I will be in touch soon an will send you some pictures as soon  as we get through all 800 of them! I will also provide some photos of the dress before all of your magic was done. ~ Maria

Hi Susan,
I wanted to send you a couple of wedding pictures. Everything turned out so beautiful and the birdcage veil was perfect! It took a couple of times to get  it right, but once we got it, I didn't touch it for the rest of the day. The day turned out really nice--a bit cloudy, but considering what happened two days later, we were very very lucky!! So, thank you so much for everything and for your patience and calming presence during my fittings. I am so so glad that we agreed about putting my hair up. I just loved the whole birdcage veil and the flower--they were just perfect!! I think other  brides will appreciate the pictures of the veil and flower. Thanks again!!      - Susan

I chose Susan Kolar Couture to make my wedding dress and it was the best decision I made for my wedding!  Working with Susan was fantastic!  She was open and welcomed my design ideas, and made them come to life!  Her work is truly exquisite and my handmade couture gown wowed all of my guests and even brought my husband to tears as I walked up the aisle!  Having an original dress custom fit just for me, that no other bride in the world would be wearing is an incredible feeling, and the fact that the final price of my fabulous gown rivaled the dresses in the cookie cutter dress stores was unbelievable!  Susan has an eye for detail, movement, and fit, resulting in a gown that will not only flatter you, but will be very comfortable to wear throughout your special day!  Thank you Susan for making my wedding dress dreams come true! —GK











Susan is beyond amazing! I randomly purchased my wedding gown while pregnant ,online, never having seen it in person before, and guessing as to what size I might be on my wedding day! i know. Crazy right? Not only did she hem it, but she cut out the entire zipper back and made it into an open corset, adjusted the straps, and added a bustle for my train. She turned my impromptu purchase into my dream wedding gown. Keeping with my non traditional theme, she also created a birdcage veil with a dazzling flower fascinator encrusted in rhinestones and pearls. I can not begin to tell you how many compliments I received on my dress, let alone the fact it fit like a glove. Susan doesn't make dresses, she makes extensions of your personality. I'm am so happy she could make my wedding day everything I could have hoped for. I can't wait for her to work on my daughters flower girl dress in a few months! Alyssa








Hi Susan,
Thank you so much! Despite rain and other snafus, the  wedding day and the goings on before and after were wonderful! I got  many compliments on the dress and the veil. I'll be sure to send you some pictures when I get them.
Thank you so much for a wonderful dress-making experience and a beautiful dress!   Best, Annie






Susan, I can thank you a thousand times, but I'd need to thank you a thousand more. You know my personality and I was all wound up on our wedding day. So, yes, all eyes were on me-and you MADE MY DREAMS COME TRUE! This was the dress that put all others back to average. It was me to a T. It was a perfect day, I couldn't have done it without you!  ~Ande





I Had several balls to attend in NYC and Susan both restyled (velvet and lace) and custom-made dresses (silks, brocade and velvet) for me to attend these formal occasions. Everyone loved my dresses and I got tons of compliments on the unique detailing that she added to the dresses!!! With Susan, I received the personal attention and customer service that is missing from today's ready-to-wear stores. This was the kind of interaction my godmother used to talk about getting with the high-end stores like Bonwit Teller, Lord & Taylor, Sachs, etc. Who knew I could find it in the Lehigh Valley? Susan's workmanship on the dresses was amazing, both inside and out. The dresses fit beautifully and were very comfortable (as I had to eat and dance in them). I could tell that she has had years of design and dressmaking experience. She really knows her fabrics and fit! The whole experience was a joy and I know where I am getting my next special occassion dress! VH
