STORY of KERRY:-
KERRY was having a hard time searching for a tea length wedding dress at the point that she was giving up of ever finding her dream dress exactly as she has envisioned it.
As all brides would know, most labels DO NOT customised styles, you’ll just have to take it as it is. Finding a tea length wedding dress is already a mission but one with sleeves just at elbow (not short sleeve and not 3/4 length sleeves), NAVY petticoat and NAVY beaded belt is almost mission impossible unless you have it custom designed.
Kerry did checked that option with a few local designers but it was way over her budget.
Paula, her lovely mum stumbled across Mon Belle Bridal and rang to enquiry if we could custom design her daughter’s dream wedding dress within her daughter’s budget and I told her yes definitely.
We design locally with production overseas for affordable pricing (less than half what Kerry was quoted for her dress to be made locally) and with the dress being especially custom made we would have it custom sized so unless you’ve lost or gained in size, there’s no massive alterations costs.
Paula was so excited that she made an appointment immediately and had to drag a disillusioned Kerry to the appointment. After discussion to find out what Kerry really wanted, did a quick sketch on Kerry’s silhouette to give her an idea of how the dress would look like and she was so delighted and put the deposit down on the spot.
Note: I prefer to draw on customer’s silhouette and not those beautiful designers delusional images and had been critiqued that my quick sketches are terrible. But I think its more realistic and customers are often delighted knowing that their actual wedding dress is much prettier than my quick sketch.
At the time of sketching I would have no idea of what lace I would be working with so its just some sort of scribble but I would have an idea of the type of lace the bride would love and would source to create the look she wants.
Most brides would have been anxious and will occasionally call, message or email us for progress on their wedding dress but not Kerry. Her dress was supposed to arrive a month to her wedding and she was so trusting that she didn’t even worry when there was a production delays as we just couldn’t find the right trim for the neckline of her dress.
As it was a custom made dress, we took all the relevant measurements to ensure great fit and at first fitting, KERRY was delighted that not only was it a perfect fit, it was exactly how she dreamt her wedding dress would be that she couldn’t help dancing with delight at our Treeby studio. Oh it was such a memorable fun.
