We all know how hard it can be to pick out a wedding dress that fits your specific style. At Anglo Couture we can help you design the wedding dress of your dreams! We literally create your gown from scratch just for you. We believe that every bride is truly a unique woman with a unique personality, style, and body type. Our belief in a woman’s uniqueness and strength drive the way we create each custom wedding gown. Most of us don’t wear formal wear on a normal basis or have custom pieces of clothing overflowing our closet space. That’s why at Anglo Couture we find it important to educate you on the whole process.
During the first consultation, we start off by listening to you, the bride. We ask you what you envision, what you want to feel like on your wedding day, what you like and don’t like, etc. After we gather that information, we have you try on different styles, fabrics, and cuts from our collections. From there we start to piece together the puzzle of what type of gown makes you look and feel your best. After there is a cut or style that we can work off of, we start pinning beading or draping fabric on you. We play with straps or no straps, types of beading, how much beading. Once you feel like we are getting close to the vision of our dream dress, our amazingly talented designer, Vicky Anglo takes her notes and creates the sketch of your wedding gown.
With the sketch and all the details of fabric in place, we have you come back in for a muslin fitting so we can create your pattern. You might be asking, “what is muslin, anyway?” It’s a type of cotton used to create the pattern for your wedding gown. Our seamstresses pin the muslin fabric on your body to create the perfect fit just for you. Then, your pattern is made and the work gets started on your dream wedding dress.
From there we have a couple fittings. One to fine tune anything and play with extra details. Then, there is the final fitting where everything is completed. At this point the gown fits you like a glove and you have a wedding gown that is made just for you, the strong and beautiful woman that you are. It is an experience like no other. Not only will your Anglo Couture custom couture wedding gown fit your shape and highlight your best features, but most of all you will truly feel your best self on your wedding day.
