If you want a truly stunning made-to-measure wedding gown then you should hire the services of a couture designer.
What is couture?
A couture dress is a tailor made gown made especially for you. It comes with five-star service - you will have at least five face-to-face consultations with your designer. So what should you expect?
This appointment is all about coming up with the style and concept of your dream dress. - you will need to expand on the long and white description. Your designer will take the time to get to know your expectations on style, colour, and fabrics. You will then get to try on loads of stunning sample gowns.
This is where things start getting serious. You will try on a 'toile' - a 3D draft of your dress. Your Couturier will then pin all the necessary adjustments and transfer them onto a pattern. They need to make sure everything fits perfectly before they cut the fabric.
You will catch the first exciting glimpse of your wedding gown. Your designer will fit the outer shell of the gown, but you'll have to wait until the next consultation to get the linings added and the hem marked.
The dress should be almost finished, apart from the finer details such as buttons and beading.
The big reveal. This is your pick-up fitting - by then your gown should be completed, pressed and ready to go.
