Shimmering Ivory Services

Design Process

Shimmering Ivory couture gowns are all individually designed for you by Sian.

Each dress is unique and especially hand- made to order in Harpenden in the UK from an exquisite selection of European laces, silks, embroideries. and swaroski crystals and pearls. Sian’s personalised and welcoming service will allow you to express your desires for you own designer wedding dress. Sian will sketch up several ideas for your dress and together with you select from the stunning fabrics and trims to create your dream wedding dress design. 

Your measurements are taken to make up a toile (a mock up in cotton of your dress) The toile will be fitted and altered giving you chance to realise the shape of your design. Any alterations required will be made to your pattern before the dress is cut and beautifully hand-made in house. In order to acheive a perfectly fitting gown you will be required to have a further 2-3 fittings. For a consultation for Shimmering Ivory bespoke bridal gowns service, please contact Sian. design

* Alterations policy

We hope you are completely happy with your dress once it has been altered to your body shape. We suggest final alterations are done 4 weeks before the wedding and body measurements are maintained.  However some brides loose or gain weight before their wedding. Dresses can be taken in but we have little room to take a dress out. However  should your body shape or measurements change we cannot be held accountable for this and the bride must pay any further additional alterations.
