Susanna Greening Designs recognises that each bride is unique and individual and therefore deserves a bespoke dress lovingly made with them 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.
I usually meet each client in person, either in my 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 I love to see your ideas.
From there we can 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 £1250 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.
