You have found the dress of your dreams. How to order it and how far in advance?
We advise you to order your wedding dress at least 6 months before your wedding date, in order to have enough time to customize it and to plan, according to your needs, the subsequent fittings to make it perfect. Should there be any specific needs in terms of time and style, we will, of course, be at your disposal to fulfill every request.
Once you confirm your dream dress, the atelier will outline with you the changes and customization. An expert tailor will take your measures to proceed in the realization of your made-to-measure dress.
In addition, you will even schedule the future fittings, usually 3, with our specialists in order to make your dress perfect for your big day.
For the red carpet dresses from the "Atelier" collection we recommend the same process and timing as for the "Bridal", while the formal dresses from the "Atelier" collection are ordered and made in size and then adapted for specific needs. In this case we recommend placing the order a couple of months before the event.
How is the fitting experience?
After ordering the wedding dress, transcribing the measurements and choosing the customizations, the atelier will set up the next fittings with you.
During the first fitting the dress, which will have already been tailored, will be further adapted to your figure; in the second fitting, we will check all the details that have been changed, and finally, in the third fitting, we will make sure that your dress is perfect so that it can be delivered in time for your wedding day
