Wisteria Way Belles

Congratulations and thank you for considering me as your dress maker. I know that this process can seem overwhelming but let me assure you that we will get through this...and even have some fun along the way. So first things first, choose your organization. This will give you the specific guidelines as well as some examples of my work.

MOMS: I know you have many questions. The information below should help answer at least a few of those. If at any time you have any questions, please feel free to call/message/email/whatever is most convenient for you. 

The process

First off, I would like to say thank you for your interest in having me as your designer and dressmaker for your special gown. I am so excited to work with you and your daughter. Below you will find my procedure for taking your dress from dream to conception.

Meeting 1: 

  • design dress 

    • We will sit down and draw out your gown. Any inspiration pictures you have or elements that you have your heart set on can be incorporated here. 

  • Pick out fabric

    • Check your portal for specific options for places to choose fabric.

  • Measurements

  • Undergarment details

    • There are many undergarment options to choose from. You can look over the examples and options here:

  • 1/3 payment total is due at this time. This down payment is nonrefundable. down payment must be paid in order to retain services. 

  • It is very important to have a budget in mind. This will be our guide in fabric and design selection. Coming up with a budget before meeting one is one of the best things you can do to make this process easier. If you need help with this or have questions, I will put a sample budget in the link below:


Meeting 2:

  • If you chose to buy your hoop from me, I will have it ready for you at this fitting. If you did not buy your hoop from me, please bring it with you.  It would also be best to have your bra and shoes with you as well.

  • During this fitting, you will get a general idea of what your dress will look like. This is considered the bare bones fitting. I will fine tune the dress to you during this fitting. 

  • 1/3 nonrefundable payment is due at this time.

  • Please remember that this dress is custom fitted to you. IF you wish to have the ability to let it out, please let me know.

Meeting 3:

  • You made it!

  • This is your final dress fitting! You will be able to take your dress home with you today, along with your undergarments if you chose to have them made by me.

  • I will give you a care instruction card with any special instructions.

  • Final payment is due at this time.

  • I can also help you with navigating in the dress.

I hope this gives you some insight into the dress process. I will send picture updates as we go along. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me between 8 am-7 pm by phone or at any time by email.
