Reem Acra is a very well-known designer. She has produced dresses for the rich and famous for quite some time and is one of the top-rated fashion designers in the whole country. She has won numerous awards for her dresses over the years. For more about Reem Acra’s achievements, check this out.

Reem Acra has wedding dresses in all styles that are tailor-made to fit each individual who buys them. Here are just a few of her wedding dress collections for you to check out.
Tara Lynn Bridal
Tara Lynn Bridal has been manufacturing wedding dresses since 1999. Tara Lynn is another very well-known designer who has catered for many high-profile people over the years. She works alongside both the bride and groom to provide the perfect wedding attire to make that special day a little bit more special.
Not only are Tara Lynn’s wedding dresses stunning, but they are also made to be as eco-friendly as possible. This makes Tara Lynn Bridal a great choice for those wanting a quality dress that is as green as can be (metaphorically!) As for manufacturing, Tara Lynn produces her wedding gowns at a facility in Sutton, Vermont.
Tara Lynn focuses primarily on producing custom-made wedding dresses. That said, she also offers a few collections that can be viewed online. Here are some links to both her custom-made section and her collections.
Lela Rose is an American fashion designer. According to Lela Rose’s official website, she is regarded for her elegant aesthetics and fresh point of view. She has designed everything from coats, skirts, pants, and, of course, wedding dresses.
Her clothing lines have been worn by such people as Anne Hathaway, Selena Gomez, Michelle Obama, and more. Needless to say, Lela Rose knows her way around producing high-quality dresses.
All of the wedding dresses made by Lela Rose are made to order at the company’s facility in New York City. It is worth noting, it is recommended that you place your order at least 9 months before your wedding to ensure that you get your dress in time.
For those wanting to take a look at some of Lela Rose’s wedding dresses, here’s a link to the company’s official bridal page.
Kiyonna is an American based company that was founded in 1996. It is a company that focuses on producing quality clothing for plus-size women. As is often the case, it can be difficult finding a wedding dress if you are looking for a larger size. But thanks to Kyonna, plus-sized women can have the perfect dress for their big day.
It is a company that is proud of its local manufacturing and produces 100% of its products within the USA. Specifically, it manufactures its wedding dresses at a facility in Orange County, California.
Here’s a link to Kyonna’s bridal collection. If you want a little extra help, then I’ve got you covered. Check out some of the company’s best-selling product lines below.
Elizabeth Fillmore Bridal
Elizabeth Fillmore Bridal is a New York based company that specializes in producing stunning wedding dresses for people all over the US. The designer, Elizabeth Fillmore, works to create sophisticated and elegant pieces for countless happy clients.
According to the company’s meta description, Elizabeth Fillmore Bridal’s wedding dresses are made in New York City.
Unfortunately, the company’s official website doesn’t have a lot of information regarding its manufacturing location, hence why I have used an image from the Google search. If you’d like to take a look at some of Elizabeth Fillmore Bridal’s collections then check this out.
Vera Wang is probably the most well-known company on this list. The company was founded by Vera Wang in 1990. She is internationally renowned for her ability to design and produce decadent and classy wedding dresses, jewelry, eyewear, and much more.
According to the company’s website, Vera Wang employs more than 200 people who manufacture the majority of the company’s bridal collection in workrooms across the US. It is important to note that it says ‘most’ and not all. Because of this, I’d recommend reaching out to the company and enquiring to ensure that the dress you like is one that was made in the USA.
For those wanting to take a look at some of Vera Wang’s bridal collections, here’s a link to a separate Vera Wang website that only offers wedding attire.
I came across one company that does produce at least some wedding dresses in the US. However, a lot of its production takes place in facilities dotted around Europe. Here’s what I found.
Oscar De La Renta
Oscar De La Renta is an internationally renowned designer who’s produced dresses and gowns for numerous celebrities over the years. His dresses are very highly sought after and people are always more than willing to pay top dollar for an Oscar De La Renta dress.
There are a few sources that state that some of Oscar De La Renta’s dresses are produced in the USA. There are also a handful of sources stating that his dresses are manufactured all over Europe.
For those wanting to take a look at some of Oscar De La Renta’s wedding dresses, here’s a link to his entire collection. Just keep in mind that most of its production isn’t carried out in the USA.
A Company That Gets Mistaken For Being An American Manufacturer
One company kept popping up as an affordable American made wedding dress manufacturer. At first glance, this seemed to be the case. However, after digging a little deeper, it turns out that its dresses are mainly made in China. Here’s what I found.
Cocomelody was founded in 2001. The company specializes in producing quality wedding dresses at a fraction of the cost of most other companies out there. After taking a look at the website, the company has received countless glowing reviews for its wedding dresses and gowns.
One of Cocomelody’s pages is dedicated to ‘cheap American made wedding dresses.’ You can see that here. However, according to the company’s FAQ page, its dresses and samples are designed in the USA but they are actually produced at a workshop in China.
So, if you decide to purchase a wedding dress from Cocomelody then it looks like you’ll be receiving a dress that was made in China.
