We are really pleased to be bringing you our first bridesmaid dress supplier – My Bridesmaids.
Do you know exactly what you would like for your bridesmaids but can’t find it on the shelves? My Bridesmaids enables you to handcraft your perfect bridesmaid dress and have it made to order to fit all of your maids. Or perhaps you fancy taking the stress out of finding just one dress that suits all then you can work with the amazing team in the studio to create a range of dresses all within the same theme but tailored to suit the shape of each individual bridesmaid – perfect!
Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Mybridesmaids was created because from our own experiences of planning our weddings, we found it slightly stressful when trying to find our bridesmaids dresses. Like most brides we had 3-4 bridesmaids and they were different heights and sizes, it was difficult to find dresses which pleased everyone either because of the style of dress or sizes and colours not being available. Our aim is to make this part of the wedding planning easy. We will work with the bride to design her dresses and we offer a range of fabrics and colours to choose from and will tailor make the dresses.
Can you explain how the process works for us?
Bride and maids will be invited to our studio for free complimentary consultation to discuss designs, colours and fabrics, at the end of the appointment bridesmaids will be measured.
After the appointment we will send an email of a summary of what was discussed, the bride will then have the opportunity to decide whether you to go ahead with the order.
We know it can be difficult to arrange a suitable time for everyone to visit the studio so, if the bride and maids are not able to attend the studio we can also work closely with the bride to design the dresses via email, and we will provide detailed measuring instructions for the maid’s measurements. That’s one less thing to try and organise!
Do you have a team of dressmakers? what experience do they have?
We work very closely with a team of dressmakers who have many years experience, we also work closely with small team of seamstresses who are able to provide high quality alterations if required.
Will the person I meet at the studio be the same person who makes my dress?
No – we work alongside experienced dressmakers.
How much can we expect one of your dresses would roughly cost?
Dresses will start from £180 (made to measure, but alterations due to weight changes is available at extra cost).
Are alterations included?
Dresses are made to measure but alterations are not included if dresses need further adjusting for example due to weight loss. We work with 2 very nice seamstresses who have over 20 years experience in dress making and they can provide high-quality alteration requirements.
How long will it take for the dress to be completed?
Around 12 weeks from inception to finish – but can be sooner.
Can you make any additional accessories to go with the dress such as a bolero in the same fabric?
What makes you UNIQUE?
We pride ourselves in working alongside the brid e and bridesmaids to create perfect dresses for that special occasion. But we can also provide our services to tailor make garments for other occasions.
