27 jun 2017

When it comes to engagements, sometimes the biggest question isn't the one being popped during the proposal. It's the one that's been giving brides grey hairs since the inception of weddings… when is the perfect time to start looking for a wedding dress?

The answer, most likely – is right now! Well, depending on how long your engagement is, of course. For a Personalised Weddings Couture gown, you're looking at 12 to 18 months notice, sometimes 2 years for the entire dressmaking process.

The process for personally designed, individual couture gown for your big day will start at your initial consultation. The purpose of the consult is to have your dream dress designed for you!
Our designer spends endless time showing you fabrics and laces to best suit you and your dream gown – all of which will be presented to you during your consultation.

After that, once you've selected your fabrics, laces, beading etc we decide on a concept. Do you want Old Hollywood vintage glamour or effortlessly beautiful boho chic? Perhaps you prefer a more classic look, or is pretty, romantic and floral more your thing? Whatever you choose, we get things going and start the intricate process of creating the dress.

Fast-forward to your big day, and all the planning and prodding will have been 100% worth it. Because, honestly – we've never seen a bride who wasn't as ridiculously stunning as she always dreamed she's be.
