Grace + Ivory aims for extraordinary:

A socially conscious business that provides incredible wedding dresses at real world prices for the modern woman.


Hello! I’m Tina Zysk and here’s why I started Grace + Ivory... when I was searching for my wedding dress, I felt that there were not many dress options out there that represented the modern bride: kick‐ass, hardworking, independent women who were choosing to get married on their own terms.

As I continued my dress search, quality designs at my budget weren’t that accessible. And as I started to talk about my experience with girl friends and co‐workers, I felt there was a shared similar experience. We wanted to see more diversity, more bang for our buck, more focus on having a social agenda, and amazing women supporting women. While there’s still an appreciation for the wedding traditions, many that I spoke to wanted a modern bridal experience. And so, Grace + Ivory was born – I look to complete the brand with classic styles that have pops of modern details.

Our mission is about women helping women and celebrating the beautiful diversity of women in our lives. As part of our beliefs and social agenda, portion of every dress purchase goes to programs helping women and girls in need. We’re currently supporting Plan International’s “Because I am a Girl” Campaign, which has programs around the world focusing on girls’ health, education, empowerment, & community involvement. Grace + Ivory supports Plan’s belief that gender equality is central to achieving long-term change.

We hope you support our story. Dresses done differently.
