Appointments

If you would like to visit me in person, try on some samples and have a chat about your dress I would love to meet you! 

I have a range of sample dresses from around a size 6 to around a size 24. If there is a particular dress you like it's always worth asking before you visit to see what size I have it in and to make sure it's available.

Every dress I make is completely bespoke, you may like one of my sample designs but want to add sleeves or have it in a different colour for example or we can start from scratch and design a unique dress to your own specifications.

You may only have a rough idea of the kind of dresses that you like and if that's the case I can offer plenty of help and guidance and show you lots of options for fabrics/trims and styles that will help you with your design.

Appointments are absolutely free and without obligation. I am happy for you to take photos of dresses and go home and think about everything before you make a decision. If you would prefer to enquire and get a rough cost estimate by email or phone I am also happy to have a chat about your options before you come and visit.

If you have an enquiry or would like to book a consultation then please drop me and email info@afterelizabeth.com

Things to include in your email would be a rough idea of what style of dress you are after, whether you are interested in a standard design, or a fully bespoke dress, the date of your event/wedding.

 

I am available 7 days a week and am happy to do evening and weekend consultations. Your consultation will last around an hour and I am happy for you to bring along a friend, but due to space it is best to limit it to one or two.

Payment

I currently accept UK payments by Bank Transfer and use Transferwise for my international clients. Once your design is finalised I will ask for a 50% deposit to cover materials and fabrics and then the balance on completion. I also offer payment plans to spread the cost of your dress.

Prices for my dresses range from around £900 - upwards of £3,500 depending on the style, fabrics, complexity etc. It is always worth getting in touch to find out what your options are, I am very transparent with pricing and am able to offer suggestions on what can be accomplished with your budget.

Ordering your Dress Online & International Clients

If you are not close enough to come for an appointment do not worry! about 50% of all the brides I design dresses for are either further afield in the UK or are abroad. I have made dresses for brides as far away as Australia and the USA and you will receive the same dedicated, bespoke service as if you were right next door.

I understand that having your dress designed and made for you, without being able to try it on in person can be a daunting experience. I am here every step of the way to help with any questions or concerns you have. I send out mock-up's so we can perfect fit, samples, sketches, anything that is needed to ensure you have the perfect dress and it is perfectly fitting.

 

The experience should be a fun and joyful one and I have such an awesome time in the Zoom meetings/fitting with my brides. Sometimes clients involve friends and bridesmaids and the whole process is another fun part of the build up to the big day.

 

When photographing my designs I try to use a diverse range of models and body types so it is easier to envisage what pieces may look like on you. I am always happy to provide additional images, close up shots, fabric swatches and any other information that will help make your decision easier.

I have worked with bodies of all shapes and sizes and welcome ALL clients whatever your body type, size or style, you will be catered for in a friendly and comfortable environment. I do not make my dresses in standard sizes because we are all unique and beautiful and I believe that your dress should be made to fit you and not the other way around!

Taking Measurements.

If you are visiting me in person I can take all your measurements at our appointment or if you are further afield I will ask you to provide me with a set of measurements. I have full instructions on how to do this. 

I will make your dress to fit you perfectly, whatever your shape or size and would never encourage anybody to change their shape or lose weight for a wedding or event. However, I have a lot of clients who have wanted to do this so I would always suggest having your measurements taken once you know your weight will not be changing too drastically.
