Yes, we do offer a payment plan. The more notice given to make your gown the longer you have to pay it off. Please discuss the payment plan with DWB.
With a DWB gown you start with a consult. Discuss the design. Draw up a design. If you are not 100% sure of the design, it's not a problem. We just need somewhere to start. You look at samples of fabrics and if having lace, bling, trims etc we look at them as well. A quote is then worked out and is emailed through to you (usually within 24 hours). We will, however, send estimates without a consult as we know how busy a bride can be. You can then decide if you wish to make an appointment. Our consults are obilgation free. There is no pressure.
When you book our services there is number of appointments. You start with measurements and design confirmation. Your first dress fitting is in calico. This is a mock of your dress. Where you can make changes (eg - Want less fullness in your skirt or a higher neckline). After this you have your fabric fittings. There is always a minimum of 4. There is no fitting limit. You are welcome to bring someone along to fittings. Though we suggest no more than two. It can end up confusing the bride if there are too many opinions.
Generally a minimum of 8 months notice before your wedding date. Time frames may vary depending on how many clients DWB have booked for that period. It is not unusual for a bride to book 12 - 18 months prior to their wedding date to secure the services of DWB.
Due to COPYRIGHT and the fact we do not own the patterns we like to advise that we will not & do not make exact copies of gowns based on bridal magazine or internet pictures. Some fabrics are also designer exclusives. Pictures can be used as inspiration. So a design similar in style to the picture or pictures you have can be discussed. Any reputable dressmaker should adhere to this
DWB will supply an estimate without a consult. An estimate is a guide of the cost until a consult takes place where fabrics, design etc are confirmed. Therefore the actual price may vary after this. A firm quote will then be sent before signing up. Please note that if changes are made, after accepting the quote, they may incur costs - e.g. drastic design change where more fabric is needed.
