At Susanne Christyne Bridal we love to meet and talk with you to learn about what is special to you to help us create the dress of your dreams.
Your appointment take place in our Redyett studio with only yourself and your specially selected few, giving you the time and privacy to discuss your wedding dress design ideas with us. This time is about us finding out about you. In your initial consultation we will discuss the feel and theme you aim to achieve on your wedding day, this could be: quirky and fun, romantic and whimsical, bling and glamour, bohemian and vintage, classical and traditional or modern and sexy.
When you first visit us, we recognise that there are many stages you may be at, these can include:
No matter where you are on your wedding dress design journey we can help and that’s what we are here for. We will design the dress of your dreams.
Within our studio, we have an exquisite collection of dresses which we regularly update for you to browse, try on, take inspiration from or select elements from to help visualise your dream dress and give you a clear vision.
We will listen to how you feel to firstly get the perfect silhouette for your shape, deciding on neckline, straps and sleeves. We can then refine it by looking at: fabric, detailed beadwork, lacework, train length and fastening. Lastly, we will add the finishing touches through dazzling accessories that we have in in our studio.
We will firstly recap on your initial consultation and go over every detail that we discussed for your dress, working from a sketch of your dress and fabric swatches. This will be a step by step process to give you a chance to give feedback, ask questions with the aim to provide clarity on each component of your dress. This will include: fabrics, colour, straps, depth/type of neckline, fastening and it is important to note that any changes can be made at this point.
On the same day we will take full body measurements including heel height. The design is confirmed at this stage to ensure that you are happy with every detail of your dress and once you are, we will then bring your dream dress to life.
This is the day that your dream dress is unveiled! We generally have 90% of your dress made to give control over the final little touches. After this, all we have left are the finishing touches decided after talking with you, you can select to finish your look through adding a perfect petticoat, bespoke veil, sparkly headpiece or stunning shoes. All alterations and modifications are included in your dress price, so there are no surprises later.
