Customizing your wedding dress is a personal and exciting process. Our custom-made process is easy and stress free with our streamlined system.
1. Price Quote
Send us a couple of photos of the wedding dress you love and complete the custom-made quote rest form with some basic required information, so we understand what it is exactly that YOU want for your big day. We will send you a price quote within 24 – 48 hours.
If you are happy with the price quote, we will we arrange for a design consultation appointment to discuss your custom dress further. The appointment is an opportunity for us to get to know each other better and discuss all the thing pertaining your custom-made gown such as fabrics, appliques, fine tuning design details and outline a timeline for the completion of your dress.
2. Design Consultation
At the design consultation appointment, we will discuss your custom gown in detail such as design elements, fabrics, and any specific design requests you may have.
If you can’t quite visualize all your custom dress elements together or just want to see all your ideas executed in a final dress design, an optional service* you may want to consider is having your dress vision and ideas combined sketched out digitally by our professional designer for you to preview.
If everything sounds like what you are after, we can go ahead and confirm your order by you signing off on the custom details as well as paying a 50% deposit to secure your dress in our production schedule.
(* Design sketch attracts a fee and is subject to designer availability.)
3. Dress Production
The beginning stage of your custom wedding gown begins with sourcing all the materials, fabrics, embellishments (if required) and anything else your dress requires.
Then your dress moves on to the next stage with a mock up design and placement of any lace, appliques, or embellishments. Production photos will be sent you via email so that we can make sure everything is perfect before moving forward.
When you work with us, we will turn your vision into a reality. Each piece is stitched together and perfected by our team of expert dressmakers. Upon completion of your custom gown, we will send over one final photo that captures the finished masterpiece!
4. Fitting & Delivery
The dress awaits! You have made it to the final stage of your journey—the moment you’ve been waiting for since day one. There is no better feeling than wearing something that was specifically designed with only YOU in mind, knowing every detail matches your personality and desires.
At this first fitting, you'll have the opportunity to slip into your dream dress and see where necessary alterations are needed. It is almost always necessary to alter wedding dresses for it to fit perfectly with your body and fit preference. We can provide you on site alterations or recommend another tailor who does this type of work so that the dress will be just right!
