All of your excitement and an open mind! We encourage you to wear nude underwear and bring a pair of shoes similar to what you can image yourself wearing on your big day. Please do not wear any makeup as it can soil our sample garments and ruin the experience for other brides.
As much as we love a good bridal party, we want to make the experience about you! We do understand how important it is to have your nearest and dearest with you at this special time however due to the limited space in our boutique studio, we like to ask you to bring no more than 3 guests.
We do things a little bit differently at WFML; all of our designs are our own and we have our own production team. The gowns you will try on in our studio are our samples. We do not have excess stock in standard sizing, we make gowns as they are ordered. This allows us to make you gown to your specific size measurements (made to measure) and enables us to customise features of the gown if you so wish (bespoke).
We are in partnership with an extremely talented dressmaker who can take care of any alterations you may need. As our gowns are made to measure, generally the only alteration cost our brides have is their hemline. The hemline is the one measurement we do not take as we do not expect you to have purchased your shoes before your dress.
If you decide to change a feature of your gown after it has been made, or you have a dramatic change in weight, the additional alterations costs will be your responsibility.
A 50% deposit is due upon ordering your gown with the remaining due to be paid fully before your first fitting. Alteration costs must be paid before the gown is collected.
We suggest to start your gown shopping 9-12 months out from your wedding day. Most of our gowns take between 5 and 6 months to be made. Don’t panic if your wedding date is sooner than this, we do offer a Rush Service, however orders requiring an extremely fast production timeframe will incur a rush order fee as it affects our entire production schedule.
