This listing is for a wedding gown or ensemble consultation. I never use patterns, so I can create just about anything you have seen before. This is especially great if you have a figure that is hard to fit or you have already found your dream dress, but it is far out of your price range.

Purchasing this listing means you would like to begin consultation on your dream gown. The purchase of this listing covers style and fabric research up to ten hours as well as up to 20 custom style sketches and the shipping of any fabric samples.

I have a large portfolio of past styles that you are welcome to look through as well as thousands of vintage dresses that we can take inspiration from. Of course you may have been dreaming of exactly what your dress will look like for quite some time, in which case, please describe it to me to the best of your ability and I will put together a sketch. If you have no idea what you are looking for and would like some suggestions on flattering styles, please send me your measurements and a few current pictures of you i fitted clothing so I can see your body style.
I am more than happy to hear your ideas on what your dream dress will look like and put together a free quote on what the dress will cost. Once you have narrowed down a few styles you like best I will put together some sketches of what the dress will look like completed. Once we decide on a style we can discuss fabrics.
Fabric samples do cost me, so they are not free. I have a set of bridal fabrics which I am happy to send to you for the price of shipping as long as you promise to send them back to me. They include silks, silk-satins, cottons, linens, hemps, bamboo and other natural fiber silk-blends.
For Beading I prefer to use swarovski crystal beads and rhinestones and freshwater pearls, although I do have less expensive synthetics available as well.

For brides who are going to be in the California Bay Area, I am happy to take your measurements and do a fitting consultation for free. I also will do one free alteration on your dress so we can be sure it has the right fit. I prefer to do this in person for perfect accuracy, but I do work with clients all over the world, even internationally. I recommend that distant clients order their dresses early to leave time for alterations if they are necessary. I would also recommend that you find a local alterations seamstress if you are in a time crunch as shipping back and forth costs money and time.
I will create for absolutely any size! I don't need patterns so I custom cut every piece out to your measurements anyhow, size is not an issue for me. For clients who can not come to my shop for a free fitting, please request my measuring body chart to see where you need to take your measurements. I will be happy to guide you through the process so we can get the perfect fit on you.

I also do custom headpieces, garter belts, ties, sashes, gloves, jackets, custom swarovski and freshwater pearl jewelry, and bridal shoes! We even do corsets and other bridal or honeymoon lingerie custom made to fit and flatter you.
We do Bridesmaids, Flower Girls and Mother of the Bride Dresses as well!

Wedding Gowns are constructed at $350 a day for the graphing, cutting and sewing. This does not include materials, materials will be charged separately from construction costs. Most dresses take between 1 and a half to three days to complete. So you can expect a base price of $750+ Dresses with intricate bead work do take longer.

Since the gown is custom made for you and I will be spending my time making the dress I cannot offer any sort of monetary return on your dress. However, I do offer one free alteration so we can be sure you get a good fit. If you have no use for the dress after your wedding, I am happy to re-sell the gown on my site and give you whatever it sells for minus the cost of paypal and etsy fees (about 15%). I am also happy to dye your gown a new color or alter it into an evening gown!

Timing is everything in the bridal experience. It is NEVER TOO SOON to start!! Most brides come to me with only a month or two to spare which can be very stressful. Please let me know as soon as possible if you are thinking about having a custom gown made. Please keep in mind adding bridesmaid, flower girl dresses or any accessories make the process take a little longer so try to think of everything you need right away :) I would like to have at least 3 to 6 months on most bridal orders. I do recommend that if you live in another state or country, that you find a alterations seamstress near you to make any final adjustments, as they can perfect the dress using your actual figure. I am happy to find your seamstress and speak with her about making alterations, if they are necessary.

Thank you and Congratulations!
Suzy Cherry
