Yanique, Designer & Founder
Yanique Barnes, a woman of true grit and passion, found her calling in the most unexpected way. After spending five years managing a Chanel boutique, she stumbled upon her true passion – designing wedding dresses. It all began with a twist of fate when Yanique created three non-bridal dresses and listed them on Etsy, only to have them quickly embraced by brides. This unexpected success led to the birth of Dreamers & Lovers in 2012, an enterprise that has since grown into a remarkable success story.
With a firm commitment to her newfound calling, Yanique pours her heart and soul into every dress she designs. Her unique eye for detail and belief in craftsmanship as an art form make her creations stand out in a sea of mundane designs. At Dreamers & Lovers, we believe in empowering every bride to feel beautiful, confident, and genuinely herself in their chosen dress.

“Thank you so much for all your help and for a job well done. The dress was more beautiful than I could have imagined.
It was absolutely stunning and I received so many compliments. The color, style, and texture of the dress were perfect and went so well with our wedding. This was actually my second dress. I had purchased one under pressure, but I was less than in love with it and I kept looking around for “the dress.” And I am so glad I did, because I found it with you guys. It was so comfortable, unique, and all around perfect.
I am so glad that I was able to work with you. I am so grateful for your time, artistic talent, hard work, and effort in making my wedding day such a memorable event. I attached a few photos that I thought you might enjoy.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.”
