At Rose DeSimone Bridal, We try to make purchasing a custom gown as easy (or easier!) than purchasing an off-the-rack gown from a bridal retail store.
Here is typically how our process works:Call or email our office to schedule your custom wedding dress consultation appointment with our designer, Rose DeSimone. (Schedule as soon as possible as we do book up quickly!...We are a boutique manufacturer and only produce a limited number of gowns per month, so as to maintain the highest level quality and attention to each client) No charge for initial consultation.
Prior to the 1st meeting, our designer will give you a call to discuss your goals for your wedding gown...your likes and dislikes. She will ask you to email photos of some of the styles you like, so she will have an idea of what you are looking for. She'll go over your ideas for the wedding gown and discuss body shape and size/proportion, if you have any weight loss or gain goals, the date of your wedding, budget, etc. Usually, our designer can give you an aproximate cost of your gown over the phone, so you know price prior to your 1st meeting. Generally, the dresses start at around $1200. and adjust according to design. (Prices include custom pattern design, so no additional alteration charges are usually necessary)
1st meeting: Meet with our designer to get to know each other, fine tune your wedding gown design, and determine the final price of your gown. Bring clippings, sketches (stick figure drawings are ok:). No charge for initial consultation. Once you are confident with our process and decide that we are going to proceed to the next step, design/create your custom wedding gown gown, a design fee of $300. is required. (Design fee is non-refundable, however will be credited to your purchase upon commitment to proceed with order-we do accept all major credit cards for your convenience.) • behind the scenes...Designer, Rose DeSimone, then gets to work sketching your design and purchases just the right sample fabrics and trims, etc. She then gives you a call to schedule your next meeting (Usually within one week) - You get to see your Dream Dress design and fabrics!
2nd meeting: Meet with the designer to see your final sketch...Your Dream Wedding Gown! Upon final approval of your gown you will be given a Design Packet which includes a beautiful sketch of your Wedding Gown, fabric swatches, trim and beading samples (if applicable), and a receipt for your gown. All wedding gowns include custom cut petticoat, if applicable to design, and a custom made veil set (blusher, fingertip, and long veils)as our gift to you. You will pay the balance of your gown at this time (We do accept all major credit cards for your convenience.). Designer will take your complete measurements at this meeting, too. We respect your time and know that you have many things to do and plan at this time, so we try to complete as much as possible in as few meetings as possible.
• behind the scenes...Designer then orders all materials to make your gown. She creates your unique, custom fit pattern and muslin fitting garment and calls you to schedule your first fitting appointment.
3rd meeting: Meet with designer to try on your muslin fitting garment. She will adjust the pattern to suit your unique body. Neckline, back, hem length, and design details are all adjusted to your personal likings. Bring your shoes, bra and any undergarments you will be wearing under your gown.
• behind the scenes...Your gown will now go into final production. Designer will call you to schedule your final fitting, if needed, and/or delivery of your completed gown.
4th meeting: Meet with designer to see your Beautiful finished gown and make any final adjustments, if necessary. Usually, your gown will be available to take home with you that day if no adjustments are necessary. Otherwise, your dress will be done within a few days.
