BESPOKE WEDDING DRESS DESIGN PROCESS
The Kate Edmondson bespoke wedding dress experience starts from a competitive £2000. This includes a fully bespoke bridal gown service and takes approximately 6-8 months to complete. The experience offers a design consultation, styling advice and fabric sourcing, fittings a calico mock-up of your design, to the finished product designed and made in the UK with only you in mind.
What to expect…
An initial design consultation to find out more about you and discuss your wedding dress ideas.
Based on your ideas, wedding theme, likes and dislikes, Kate will then produce a few wedding dress design sketches of your dress.
If you are happy to proceed, Kate will then take your measurements to create a paper pattern of your bridal dress design.
Your first calico toile is made. This is a mock up version of your dress. Once this is completed, your first fitting will take place.
It is necessary to produce a mock-up of your dress so further tweaking and adjustments to the design can be made to ensure the perfect end result.
Any necessary alterations are made to perfect the fit of your dress. Once these alterations are made you will need to attend a further fitting to ensure you are completely happy with the cut and fit of your dress.
At this stage, Kate will order your chosen fabric and trims, to complete your wedding dress design.
Kate will then complete the outside shell of your wedding dress in your chosen materials, before adding the lining and finishing touches.
The lead time is dependent on the design and style of dress. But as a general guide, the bespoke bridal service can take up to six to eight months. Please allow this time so you can enjoy the process and the experience of having a one of a kind dress made just for you.
