Frankie & Maude is a small wedding dress studio in Bellingham, WA, run by mother/daughter team Kathleen and Meghann. Together, they design and create their own beautiful collections of dresses, as well as custom orders. So many decisions go into planning a wedding, and there's something really special and reassuring about knowing exactly who's making your wedding dress. If you're engaged and live in the Bellingham area, I highly recommend making an appointment, bringing a few friends, and talking with Kathleen and Meghann about your dress. (If you have time, tea and scones at Abbey Tea Garden is a must!) I visited their studio to select a wedding dress for myself, and fell in love with three of their designs. We combined elements of each, selected fabrics and ribbon, and they had me pop back in for a couple quick fittings to make sure it was just right. Kathleen and Meghann made the entire process special, lighthearted, fun, and easy, and it's clear they're both really passionate about what they do. If you're looking for a high quality custom wedding dress, made by two talented local women, I highly recommend Frankie & Maude!
Frankie & Maude recently moved into a new and improved studio (pictured below), and I just love what they've done with the space! Make a day of your visit and walk to Abbey Tea Garden, CreativiTea pottery painting studio, Mambo Italiano, Rustic Coffee & Wine Bar, Sirena Gelato, or Village Books. Watch the sunset at Boulevard, and if you're feeling fancy, make an appointment at the Chrysalis!
