I'd like to customize one of your collection gowns. How does that work?

To customize one of our collection gown designs, purchase a Custom Wedding Dress Sketch and in the questionnaire you will receive, please indicate the changes you'd like to make to the gown. You can add sleeves, straps, etc, change the bodice, neckline, back design or skirt, request different fabric or color, the choice is completely up to you. Feel free to send images of your vision and our designer will create a custom sketch for you. Your customizations will incur an additional fee which will be assessed after confirmation of your requests. Our designer will add your customizations to your sketch for your approval.

Do you sell swatches? I'd like to see fabric samples before finalizing my gown purchase. 

You have the option to either 1. receive swatches via mail in your Welcome Kit or 2. view pictures of fabric swatches online. Swatches vary in pricing due to the limited availability from our suppliers. Most fabrics require full yard/meter cuts which start at $56 per yard and up.

Our designer has worked with specialty laces priced at $180 a yard. For this reason we prefer option 2 which cuts down on multiple shipping fees and expedites the amount of time needed to complete your wedding gown order. If you don't mind the extra fee, please use the CONTACT page to submit your request so that I can begin sourcing fabric via my exclusive network of international suppliers. 

One exception is skin tone swatching service for our DreamBrides who desire illusion mesh/lining that is nearly undetectable to match their unique hue. We will send you a collection of swatches that most closely matches your skin tone after analyzing your complexion via images you submit to in different lighting. Once you receive your swatches, simply select the best match and we will take it from there.

Will my gown fit perfectly and if not do you offer alterations?

With any special occasion/bridal gown purchase via in-store or online, you may require additional alterations or fittings to insure a perfect fit. Please have your measurements taken professionally or should you choose to take them yourself, double and triple check your own measurements so that you can choose the correct size from our size chart. If you fall between sizes, select the next larger size. You can also book our BESPOKEFit virtual fitting service which is complimentary with any purchase OR if you intend to travel to our studio you will be fitted here. 

 

***By Dani Simone Studio is not responsible for any additional fees you incur for alterations due to weight loss or gain after your initial measurements are taken as well as any fees related to pressing/steaming, etc.***
