Joan Gilbert Bride
Joan Gilbert Bride - San Francisco


A page that explains how wedding dresses are made to form and styled to individual tastes.


Fabric petals scattered over the train. A strand of white French feathers draping over the shoulder. A magenta kimono jacket. A sash from grandmother’s antique lace veil. Working with one of her select Le Spose di Gio designs or a style from one of her other Italian or Paris sources, Joan makes every wedding gown exclusively yours.

Every bride begins her Joan Gilbert Bride experience with a personal interview to reveal her wedding story. Nuptial setting, cultural or thematic interests, and family traditions can help Joan find and style your gown.  As a trained fashion designer and one of the city’s most experienced wedding dress couturiers, Joan customizes every design to flatter the bride’s individual taste, sense of style, and figure.

Every gown becomes a custom design.
