A Wedding Of Distinction
Because each bride is unique, a custom-designed couture wedding gown is a perfect choice. We specialize in creating and making one-of-a-kind couture wedding gowns to fit the pageantry of your wedding day. Every creation is rich in elegance, romance, and regal sophistication.
The magic begins when we interpret your vision, making your bridal gown into a unique masterpiece designed and created exclusively to suit your individual style. Each wedding gown is made to order in our studio with impeccable construction and workmanship. These are the hallmarks of fine couture. We sculpt your wedding gown from the finest fabrics, based on your selection. Fabrics can be adorned with exclusive hand beadwork or embroidery. Each bride will work directly with the designer through the creative process from start to finish. For a customized perfect fit, each bride's measurements are taken and a sample wedding gown is made in muslin. All fitting adjustments and design changes are made in the sample dress, ensuring that it meets the bride's specifications. Because a couture wedding gown sometimes required hundreds of hours to complete, we pay meticulous attention to each and every detail. We are committed to excellence. The service is charming, relaxed and professional in our quaint bridal studio.
Consultation is free of charge.
We discuss your vision.
*After accepting the commission, the process begins*.
You customize your gown based on your style and select fabric appropriate for the style. We take measurements and design a pattern.
1st Fitting: the sample gown is made out of muslin. You view the design style you've selected. All fit adjustments and design changes are made on the sample. After your approval, gown is cut out of the fashion fabric.
2nd Fitting: we fit the gown in the chosen fabric(s) and refine the fit.
3rd Fitting: we add selected hand beadwork, embroidery or trim detail.
4th Fitting: the gown's final fitting.
As preparations proceed for that special day, we are aware that this is a very emotional time. A week or two before the wedding, some brides have a tendency to lose weight, so a 5th fitting may be required to ensure a perfect fit. This adjustment is included in the quoted price of the gown.
Price: The cost will vary based on the fabric selection and the complexity of the design. Time: A lead time of 5 to 6 months is appropriate.
Payment: Fifty percent (50%) deposit is required. Final payment is due before or upon the completion of your wedding gown.
Out-of-State: Information available upon request. We are happy to handle your mail order request. Email us with your information and questions.
