Do I need to have my wedding shoes with me for fittings?
We don’t start hemming until you have your shoes, so it’s best to bring them with you, or shoes that are an approximate height.
Do I need to pay extra for alterations?
If you order a made-to-measure dress, we ensure the dress is sewn based on your exact measurements. If we do need to make any alterations, we charge $60/hr.
If you order a custom design dress, we offer 2 complimentary rounds of alterations. For more information about this, please send us an email!
How long does it take to make a dress?
Made-to-measure dresses take us about 3-5 months
Custom design dresses take us 5-7 months, but the earlier we can get started, the better
Do you take rush orders?
Yes! We can take you within 1 month of your wedding date but we do charge a rush fee that ranges from $150-$500+ depending on the urgency.
Can I order a custom dress if I am not from Vancouver?
Absolutely! We can facilitate video conferences to be able to provide you with a virtual experience where we show you design and material options, as well as measurement details. If you are interested in this option, please send us an email.
Can you explain your payment process?
A 50% non-refundable deposit upon initial purchase is required to hold your dress and the remaining payment will be due upon pick up.
Payment plans are available upon request and we will do our best to suit your needs.
What is the difference between Made-To-Measure dresses and custom design?
Each year our boutique features a new unique collection which consists of 6-8 styles. These dresses are ready to be tried on at our studio and can be tailored to fit your specific needs and measurements.
For custom designed dresses, we recommend that you try on our samples so you get a better idea of what material and silhouette you like. We can also create them from scratch based on your inspiration photos.
What is the price range for your custom wedding gowns?
Made-to-measure bridal dresses range from CAD $1800- $4000+
3 custom design packages range from CAD $3000-$8000+
Please note that these prices can vary depending on material and design. Please email us for further details.
I want a custom dress but I have a hard time visualizing myself based on a sketch.
Totally understandable! You can refer to our previous custom design works or dresses from our collections for style, material, lace, silhouette, and more. Our designer will work with you collaboratively to determine the best fit and look for you. This process is a two-way street.
What is fitting look like?
For your first fitting, we usually use a generic fabric to make a “muslin” sample, which will make it easier for us to adjust the fit and pattern before switching over to the final fabric.
During your second fitting, we begin cutting the final fabric and add on the desired lace and embroidery.
