Lovena Bridal Studio’s in-house seamstress personally designs and hand tailors each custom wedding dress. Drawing on her experience creating, designing and sewing wedding gowns in so many countries including London, Germany, Canada and now Australia. Lovena brides have a unique opportunity to create their dream wedding gown which is thoughtfully designed and tailored to your exact measurements.
Depending on your dress, you will have an initial appointment where we discuss the concept, followed by three to four fittings. Each gown is custom made, (is constructed in store) therefore additional fitting sessions are necessary to ensure a perfect fit. We want you to fall in love with the finished product!
It is important to wear the undergarments(bra) - not BLACK that you intend to wear on your wedding day otherwise you risk altering the final fit of your wedding gown. We also ask that you do not wear makeup, perfume, fake tan, lotions or creams to avoid marking or staining your dress. Remember to bring along the shoes or heels you intend to wear on your wedding day so we can perfect the length of your dress.
After the second fitting (this can range depending on when the wedding is taking place) we recommend you avoid changing your diet drastically. It is best to keep a steady weight in the leadup to your wedding day. Further alterations are not factored into the price of your custom dress, therefore they will attract an additional cost. Should you fall pregnant before your dress is completed, we will work with you to redesign your gown.
I went into the store having an idea of what I really wanted, and there were beautiful dresses on the racks however not what I was looking for and Narelle kindly showed me a dress she was about to order in which was EXACTLY what I wanted and took my measurements and ordered it to my size without obligation to it. I tried it on today and it’s absolutely perfect! Narelle and Chloe make you feel very comfortable and do not push items onto you! Both very friendly and take an genuine interest in you as a person not just another customer. Also very quick to respond to emails which is so important. Thank you both!
