What to do if you can’t find your dream dress?
Lately we notice that more and more brides to be find themselves in panic and almost out of time when it comes to finding and purchasing their dream wedding dress. How they ended up this way?
Some have been trying dresses at different shops but never felt like they’ve found ‘the one’ while others have already bought a dress but aren’t satisfied and want a lot of changes made to the design. This starts a long and difficult process, often when there’s little time and also can be quite expensive! Opposite to what many may think, it is sometimes much easier and cheaper to start from scratch rather than completely take apart and re-design a ready-made dress. And then there are the ones who have purchased a dress online (either out of desperation or just to save money) deceived by a shiny pretty picture and received a massive disappointment – something completely different made out of very cheap materials, looking nothing like the picture and really bad fit! With no chance for a return they often end up buying a second dress and spending more money than planned. Unfortunately, the last situation we face just too often!
So what to do when you can’t find your dream dress and you don’t want to be in a similar situation?
First, don’t leave it until last minute, don’t compromise with your choice just because it’s cheap or just because the others really love it, and second avoid buying dresses online that look and cost too good to be true.
And if you really can’t find ‘the one’ we are happy to offer our bespoke service and start this journey together!
How it works?
We will meet for initial consultation to discuss the place and theme of your wedding, the concept of the dress, your body shape and personal preferences. Next is choosing suitable materials, estimating the cost and taking your measurements. The process can take from 3 to 6 months. We will meet for at least two fittings and you are welcome to share this exciting time with close people!
The price for a bespoke wedding dress is calculated individually based on the design, type and amount of material, embellishments, hand sewing. Working with budget is possible as long as it’s realistic.
If you are unsure of what you want or expect to lose a lot of weight we can offer you to have calico/toil dress first. This is made from a much cheaper fabric and would give you the impression of how the dress will look.
We work with lots of love and attention for a positive experience!
