How the bespoke wedding dress and bridesmaid dress process works
How it works
No obligation design consultation Either in person or over the phone the process begins by chatting through design ideas, colours, fabrics, timescale and budget. I'll take notes and sketches based on your ideas. After the meeting I will work out the cost, and sketch up your design. If you would like to go ahead then we proceed with the 1st appointment.
1st Appointment Now the design and cost has been finalised we decide on fabrics and take measurements.
Fittings Your dress is made in stages so alterations and design changes can be made along the way. The beauty of bespoke is that you can change your mind! I recommend 4 to 6 fittings depending on the design, but we can do more or less to suit timescale and your busy schedule.
Delivery The final try on to check it is perfect. The dress is ready for the big day!
Brought your dress and it doesn’t fit quite right? The perfect fit is so important to feel amazing on your wedding day. I’ll take on complicated alterations that the shops won't tackle!
