First date…Shall we?
Once scheduled in for a consultation, Gbemi will pull together your ideas and consider any inspirational images you may have, to help design and finalise your wedding dress sketch. At your consultation you will also get the opportunity to view fabric swatches, colour ways and examples of previous styles. A full set of measurements will also be taken to provide accurate sizing.
On completion of your consultation, we will endeavour to provide an accurate quote, where new fabric prices may not be available instantly; we will get a precise quote over to you within a designated time frame and all fitting dates will be confirmed.
If you like it, put a ring on it
Hopefully we’ve impressed you, and you’ve accepted our proposal, so let’s get started on the most important gown you will ever wear!
Before we start production on your real wedding gown, we will first create a toile for you to fit. (A nearly version of your finished garment will be made up in calico so that the design can be tested and perfected.)
After the toile has been approved and any modifications or alterations applied, production on your real wedding dress will commence in our London Studio.
You will be scheduled in for 2 fittings before any fastenings, closures or finishings are applied to the dress, to ensure the dress is absolutely everything you want and to be sure we get the best possible fit.
For your third and final fit, your dress will be all closed up and ready for collection!
On completion of your bespoke Alonuko garment, once you are happy with the final product your garment will be packaged and ready for you to take home.
But our job doesn’t have to end here- we also offer an on the day dressing service for brides tying the knot within London.
We recommend 10 months for completion of the entire process, but orders can still be made after this time. Based on the 10 month time frame, the timeline from consultation to completion would be as follows:
Month 1- Consultation
Months 2 & 3- Instalment payments
Month 4- Toile fitting
Month 6- 1st fitting
Month 8- 2nd fitting
Month 10- 3rd fiting, collection & balance
For weddings booked earlier or later than this time frame, the timeline will alter accordingly.
