Prices and FAQs

I offer no obligation consultations, which generally last about an hour and are free of charge. The best thing to do prior to a consultation is to create a moodboard of images that you love. It could be the colour of one dress, the sleeve on another or one particular gown you just can’t get out of your mind. I do not do exact copies of dresses, but we can use these images as a starting off point.

Every dress I design is bespoke so there are no set prices but typically my design fee starts at £900. The costs of the fabric, lace and trimmings are charged separately and I can always offer advice and assistance on finding the best option for your budget. All designs are priced individually, based on the work involved in creating your design.

All prices quoted are inclusive of VAT.

A deposit of 25% (non-refundable) of the quoted price is required to secure my services.

The price of the gown will only increase if significant changes are made to the design that affects the materials and labour significantly. However, I will always keep this to a minimum as much as possible.

Home visits can be made but will incur travel and time expenses. If you think you will require home visits then we can discuss this at the initial consultation.
  • Why is payment separated in fee and fabrics?

    I like my pricing to be as transparent as possible and it allows you to choose the fabrics and finishings that suit your budget. I also give you the quote for the dress prior to the fabric sourcing trip and your choice of fabrics can vary massively but the dress cost will stay the same.

  • What does the design fee pay for?

    My design fee covers the many hours that I put into the design and creation of your gown. It covers the fabric sourcing trip, toiling materials, general use materials, interfacings and boning where required.  In addition, there are at least 3 fittings.  I work from home so I can keep my costs down as much as possible so I can produce beautiful, but affordable wedding dresses for my brides.

  • How much time do I need to plan to get my wedding gown made for me?

    It’s best to allow at least six months to complete your dress from design to finished gown. However, it is possible to complete a dress in just one month, dependent on style but this will push up the costs for fast-track finishing.

  • I’m planning on losing weight, how will this affect my dress?

    Often a small amount of weight loss will not dramatically affect your dress design. This is a bespoke wedding dress so it is perfectly fitted to your shape and, as we progress through your fittings, the dress will be continually adjusted.

    If, however, you are planning a more significant weight loss, it is best to wait until you are closer to your target weight as this may significantly affect certain elements of the dress. You may even want a completely different design!
