BESPOKE VEILS 🪡
The picture shows a veil we made for a bride who wanted to incorporate some detailing of her mother’s bridal outfit into her wedding gown. So we applied some floral lace elements of her mum’s dress to her veil as well.

🛎 In addition to our veil collection, we create bespoke veils translating our clients’ ideas. Our current promotion, a 25% discount on bespoke bridal, includes bespoke veils. Offer runs until the 31 Dec.

BRIDAL FITTINGS INSIGHT 💡
Depending on the type of dress, bridal fittings can take up longer than two hours. After pinning the alterations at the bodice, we sometimes have to take up eight skirt layers, all of them need to be pinned. To keep alteration costs as low as possible, we suggest only shortening the skirt at the front. Our fitting consultants are here to answer all your questions about how to fit your dress perfectly!

📌 Please remember to bring your shoes and well-fitted undergarments. They will be essential to ensure the best fit for your wedding dress.
