Let's talk about money...
Updated: Aug 16
When starting to think about 'How much should I spend on my wedding dress?' I think its important to think about where you are buying your gown from and the journey it has been on. There are plenty of shops out there that sell 'off the peg' mass produced gowns at a really cheap price.
But what I want to focus on in this blog post is the cost of handmade. I proudly only stock gowns, accessories and veils that have been designed and handmade right here in the UK. I think it is so important to support extremely talented designers, seamstresses and small UK labels that truly put their heart and soul into each piece they create. So therefore, the prices in the studio reflect the time and cost it takes to design, source materials, sew/make (whilst working to a brides specific measurements and design amendments), pay the people who work in these small companies a fair price and ship the item to us. So when you buy your gown from us you need to remember these costs that come with each and every piece.
The best thing about buying handmade and from a UK designer is that I work directly with these designers. I am not communicating with a big bridal company but the people who put the name to the brand themselves. So you get so much more! If you want a longer train- great we can do that! If you wanted to shorten/lengthen the sleeves of the piece you try on- we can do that too! Because we work so closely with these designers, you can really add/change elements of the dress to make it perfect rather than just accepting that is the way it looks.
So let's get down to it. I have posted some of the dresses and looks we stock and put them into price bands so that you can see what you can get for your money when you shop with us. Remember, everything is handmade to order in the UK!
£900 - £1500
£2000 - £2500
