CUSTOM WEDDING DRESSES

If you are envisioning a modern style custom wedding dress with vintage details, then you’ve come to the right place. Each wedding gown is made mindfully with luxurious bridal fabric. Here’s how the custom wedding gown process works:

Custom wedding dress design process




FIRST CONSULTATION

For starters we want to learn more about what you are envisioning for your custom gown. Have a Pinterest board with inspirational photos ready to share! Or get inspired and come hang out with us on Instagram. You can also send us a message about your gown idea here.






CUSTOM WEDDING DRESS FASHION ILLUSTRATION & SKETCH

Work with our design team to create the sketch of the custom wedding dress you are envisioning. Here we will also be selecting swatches as well. At this point, we will narrow down your exact design and confirm your wedding silhouette, neckline, back style, skirt, etc.

FITTINGS

Over the years we have perfected our fitting process. Our custom dresses are now produced with our digital made to fit patterns here in Idaho. You can visit our cottage in Southern Idaho for local wedding dress alterations or we can refer you to a trusted seamstress in your area. Plan on regular alterations just as with any other gown (approximately 3 fittings).






UNVEIL YOUR GOWN

Once your gown is ready for a final fitting, plan an unveiling party where you can show off your custom wedding dress! Feel free to bring up to 5 guests to unveil your dress. We do this complimentary here at our cottage in Idaho.
