Bespoke design is a truly personable and enjoyable experience. It's the chance of a lifetime to wear a dress that is completely unique and a true reflection of both yourself as a bride and your wonderful wedding day. I will endeavour to meet your expectations throughout the entire journey from start to finish and ensure you walk away completely satisfied with your exclusive dress.
This is a complimentary appointment where you will meet with Gemma and discuss your design ideas, the event, colours and fabrics.
If you are happy to proceed following the initial consultation, Gemma will sketch up the design in exchange for a £50 design fee. Your design will be developed within a week of receiving payment. At this point Gemma will be able to give you a quote for your dress .
An appointment will be made to take your measurements. This will be a 15-20 minute session. Please ensure you are wearing the underwear you will be wearing on the day of your event, or something similar and please also bring along a similar height heel that you will be wearing on the day. At this point you will be required to pay at least 1/3rd of the dress price, as we will then begin to start work on your dress.
A toile will be made, this is a mock up of your dress made from a toile calico fabric. This is made in order to perfect the fit and make any minor design adjustments. We will do as many toile fittings as needed. We advise all clients to have chosen their underwear at this point if possible and be wearing it at this stage as this can alter the fit of the garment. We will finalise all fabrics at this point as well.
These fittings will be in your real gown in your chosen fabrics. During these fittings we will look at the hem length and any bustle requirements. We aim to get the fit of your gown perfect at the toile stage. Therefore any alterations at this stage will incur an additional cost.
You will be able to try on your dress for the last time before we hand it over to you to enjoy wearing on your very special day!.
We aim to make most if not all of the alterations at the toile stage. These are included in the initial dress price. Any alterations to the final dress, as in the case of most bridal shops are an additional cost and will be calculated at the time.
Our bespoke wedding gowns start at £2000.
Our collection dresses start at £1500.
Our aim is to ensure you walk away 100% happy with your wedding gown. Unfortunately due to the nature of our one off bespoke gowns we are unable to offer any refunds.
