Please wear any slimmers or underwear you plan to wear on your wedding day as slimmers for instance can significantly alter your measurements.

If you would like to express your delicate taste and sense of individuality, you can get your wedding dress personally designed for you by our Head Designer, Edith Szogradi.
Most brides fall in love with one or more of her made-to-measure creations displayed on our website, but they would like some changes made to the original design so they book a 30minute Online Consultation with Edith. During the Online Consultation brides get to show her pictures or describe some details of their dream dresses and she completes the design and turns it into reality, subtly adapting it to the bride’s shape and personality. She always presents a wide range of options to the bride, even if it means slightly steering her ideas in the direction she believes will result in the dress that’s better than she had ever hoped for!
