Its not often you will have a bespoke wedding dress made for you and here is a some questions that are frequently asked.

Generally we start the process 8-12 months before your wedding date. However, I do work with each client’s specific requirements and can make dresses in a shorter timeframe.

We will normally have 3-4 fittings starting from a toile fitting to your dream outfit.

For a rough guide bespoke wedding dress designs start from £2000. They are quoted on the individual design and the choice of fabrics / the amount of work that goes into creating it. I have created bespoke service page which should provide you with more information on the process.

Alterations and Love & Restore Design range from dress to dress but typically start from £400 going up to £1000

Ideally, bring whatever type of underwear you plan on wearing on the day, as that can affect how your dress sits. I have written a blog on the importance of foundation garments and why you should consider them at the start of your dress journey. Also, having the shoes you are wearing on the day is important.

If the wedding date changes, the timeline will need to be negotiated on a case by case basis.

Toile fitting is where your decisions need to be finalised. Small allowances are allowed during the fittings but if you lose or gain weight that requires reconstruction of your bespoke design, you will incur additional charges.

This is why we undergo an extensive consultation process to prevent hesitation or second-guessing. Your fittings are essential as they help you visualise the gown and ensure you are happy and confident in your decision. Due to the nature of bespoke gowns being created for you only, they are non-refundable.
