I named this business The House of Bretón in the tradition
of all great fashion houses, but also for you.
This is our house. And in our house, you’ll always be accepted.
While so many wedding brands turn away queer, curvy, trans, non-binary, BIPOC, neurodivergent, and other people, we say, “welcome home.”
Meet the Designer
You’d think I would have embraced fashion at an early age, coming from a family of Colombian seamstresses and tailors. But instead of learning sewing from my parents, I taught myself in 2007 after getting an acting degree and trying to make my own costumes. I started The House of Bretón (formerly Curvy Custom Bride) in 2014 as a home for the queer and plus-size communities in the wedding industry.
I’m Lei Bretón and I’m calling “bullshit” on the bridal industry. They’ll tell you that your wedding day will be gorgeous and the best day of your life… except if you’re queer, plus-size, live in the Midwest, and make less than six figures. These are lies, my friend, and I’m using my business to spread the good word.
