WHAT CAN I AS A BRIDE EXPECT FROM YOU?
We are a small family run business that designs and manufactures unique bridal wear for discerning brides. We specialize in modern and bohemian made to order wedding dresses that are available for sale or rent.
DO YOU OFFER CUSTOM DESIGN?
Our Boho range is customizable – we are able to add or remove sleeves, change the neckline or back or even the silhouette. We can also create your dream dress using our existing designs as the foundation.
WHEN SHOULD I BEGIN DRESS SHOPPING?
We have a comparatively short production times of 3 months, but advise you to start shopping sooner rather than later – ideally 4-5 months before your wedding date is due.
HOW CAN I BEST PREPARE MYSELF FOR THE APPOINTMENT?
Looking for a dress is an exciting time and it is normal to feel a little nervous, but please don’t worry as we make you feel welcomed and at ease. Arrive relaxed, hydrated and well-nourished so you are not limited by fatigue. Bring a sense of open-mindedness as you never know what your dream gown feels like until you wear it!
HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN I BRING?
Reserve your appointment for the closest few. Our studio is small, and for the occasion to be all about you finding the perfect dress for you, it is best to not bring more that three guests along. In our experience, one-two guests is the perfect number. You’ll have a chilled hour with space to focus on your vision.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Wear skin coloured underwear that you don’t mind being seen in by our consultant. Why not come a bit beautified with eye makeup and hair, in order for you to get a sense of the full picture.
CAN I RUSH MY ORDER?
Sometimes it is possible, so please enquire as we will do anything to help.

WHAT DOES MADE TO ORDER MEAN?
A brand new dress is created for your wedding and is made to your individual size. We will take your measurements at the appointment and draft a unique pattern which will make the gown fit you perfectly.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I BOUGHT MY DRESS?
If your have purchased made to order dress, as soon as the deposit is paid your dress will be made in your size with the modifications you require.

You can rent gowns in the Boho Bridal and Boho Luxe collections. The gown will be created in your individual size within the range of SA/UK 8-18. Our rental gowns are made brand new for your wedding, which means the dress is made especially for you and noone else would have worn it.
DO YOU OFFER ALTERATIONS?
The dress is made to your exact size as when you ordered, but it is likely that we need to adjust to fit perfectly. We do alterations one month before your wedding. Please note that alterations are quoted extra and the additional cost will depend on the extent of the work.
