Susanna Greening Designs recognises that each bride is unique and individual and therefore deserves a bespoke dress made just for them. SGD dresses are lovingly made with the bride in mind from start to finish, down to each special, little touch. Using only the most luxurious silks, fabrics, lace and finishes- every dress is made to measure, fitted and created in our lovely studio in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside by our expert designer and seamstress, Suzi Carr.
Suzi meets each client in person, either in our Derbyshire studio or at your home, where we can discuss any ideas you may have, look at fabrics and get a feel for what you’re after. Please do bring along any pictures, ideas, magazines, pinterest boards or general wedding inspiration as we love to see your ideas.
We will go on to discuss fabric options - suggesting fabrics that will work best with your ideas and from this an initial design will be created. You will be provided with a quote based on the design and fabrics agreed.
Once a design is chosen a mock-up of your dress is created which would usually be in calico or a plain fabric. This is then fitted to your exact measurements and any design details or changes you might like to make discussed. You would then usually have a further 2-3 fittings - a fitting once your dress has been cut and made in your chosen fabric, and a final fitting in your finished dress to make sure it’s absolutely perfect before the big day!
If you wish to go ahead with a design, your measurements will be taken and a deposit of 25% of the quotation is required to secure your dress.
Bespoke wedding dresses start from £1200 and will be dependant on each individual design and fabric choices, this will be discussed at the consultation.
Please allow 6-12 months lead time on your dress, however it is possible to create a dress in as little as 12 weeks so please do contact us if you require a dress sooner.
