Tell us a bit about your background/career path.
I started my career in fashion about 7 years ago and was blessed to help create and build some really successful fast fashion brands in different parts of the world.
Can you provide an overview of what to expect during wedding dress shopping and timeline of this process?
Because we are different in that we can create literally anything that a bride desires, we love it when a bride comes with lots of ideas, pins, pictures, etc… so that we can come up with the perfect dress design for her.
Once she says yes to a dress or the design of a dress, it usually takes 3 to 6 months to create it for her. In totally custom orders, we usually have a mid-production exchange with the bride to ensure what we are making is exactly as she envisioned.
What is the biggest piece of advice you’d give a bride in her selection process?
Given our unique ability to create completely custom designs, our advice for the bride is to NEVER COMPROMISE on what she wants. Also, looking at how she photographs in dresses is often more important than the feeling. The day of is a flash and the photos last forever!
What do you love about working with brides to find their wedding dress?
We absolutely LOVE being a part of the process and seeing the look on her face when she feels beautiful and that moment when she can see herself as a bride for the first time.
Why is making an appointment needed?
It is needed because we dedicate a stylist for every bride as well as a space for her and her party. Weekends often are fully booked so we want to make sure that she has the best experience possible.
Who is your favorite dress designer? (besides yourself)
We absolutely love Berta and a lot of the other Israeli designers. Pronovias has such a timeless and elegant look as well.
Any other advice?
When brides have large parties with them, it can be a bit overwhelming. We suggest not to make the process any more stressful that it has to be. I think minimizing the amount of appointments booked and trying to keep the bridal party a little more intimate really helps the bride have a more enjoyable experience.
