Buying your wedding dress will no doubt be the most important decision and purchase that you will make out of your entire wedding plans.  You may well have in mind exactly the kind of dress that you want, or you may be completely bowled over by the choices that are available, either way it is still very important to get professional advice because what you want may simply not suit your body shape and colouring.  There are a huge range of wedding dresses on the market, but if you can’t seem to find the right one, or you would like something made specifically for you, then a bespoke wedding dress could be the answer.  We contacted Mary Treacy,  a bespoke wedding dress designer and maker, to ask her a few questions regarding the process of getting a dress made.

1)  What is the first step in getting a bespoke dress created?

A consultation with the client to discuss the style of dress that would best meet her needs.

2)  How will a bride know if the dress will suit her once it’s been made up?

I always make a toile.

3)  How long does the process take from start to finish?

Clients need to allow six months.

4)  Do you have a ‘trademark’ style or fabric?

I only use silk fabrics.

5)  What do you do if a bride wants a specific style that will not suit her shape?

I would use all my powers of persuasion to change her mind.

These are just a few questions that we thought a bride would like to know before deciding if a bespoke dress is the way for them, if you have any questions for Mary use the link to her website where she has full contact details as well as a gallery of dresses and some wonderful testimonials.
