What is a time frame for making a Bespoke gown?
A creation and design of a bespoke gown will require 8-12 weeks from the booking deposit and sketch approval. However we accept rush orders and we had design gowns in 4-5 days for our destination brides. In this case, creating individual embroidery and embellishment will not be possible however brides have the option of choosing from a good selection of high quality (mostly Polish) auto beaded fabrics and ready bead embroideries and other embellishments to add to their design.
How much does a Bespoke gown cost ?
Our Bespoke design cost starts from … ( Please call 055 80 90 374 ) including fabrics, 30-40 hours of pure handwork embroidery and 30-60 hours work of art lace or other luxury techniques and fabrics. The cost will increase based on the hours of required handwork or fabric selection. However, the quality of the finishing, basic fabrics and built in corsets in every gown is equal. Its just the amount of pure handwork that increases the cost of each gown and sometimes it is about the craft techniques behind the creation of each piece. If you are budget conscious please read the question on how to select a bespoke gown off the rack.

Why should I have a budget on the gown and share it before my appointment ?
A very useful and general tip on this subject is, that when you are planning your big day first thing is to share your budget with your vendors and then describe and share your design and idea. It will help your vendor to think out of the box. For example, a bride is sharing a picture with stunning embellishment which will require 300 hours of pure handwork and embroidery , but when we estimate the budget it will be overwhelming as it is way above her budget. But it can be a different story if in the beginning she share her budget, then we will think on how to create a stunning gown being inspired by her ideas and design within the budget, we will then look at alternative options to find quality auto beaded fabrics and laces, and then it will turn to be a very fun and exciting journey. Sharing your budget will help your vendors to look and walk into the right direction and make it happen, instead of them spending energy looking at wrong ideas and or being exhausted and unhelpful.
Can I bring my own fabric?
We have strict rules when it comes to the quality of the fabrics, our preferred fabrics are bridal silk satin , french lace , french tulle, auto beaded Polish laces and very fine fabrics to be used on the basic and linings.
