Congratulations on choosing your dream wedding dress! We’re delighted to share your Bridal journey here at Ruth Milliam
Bridal Couture and look forward to creating your beautiful bespoke gown.
Please carefully read below to know what is expected from you at your next fitting with us.
All fittings will need to be arranged on a week day.
Toile fitting: (20-16 weeks before your wedding.)
This is the structural fitting of your gown.
We use the foundations of your chosen gown to precisely pin and fit it to your body. We look at the basic corset & basic skirt for the overall shape of your dress. At this stage, some changes can be made to the overall design of your wedding dress however extra costs may incur.
First fitting: (6-8 weeks before your wedding.)
This will be the first time you see the beaded element & the base of your dress completed. Dependant on the style of the dress, we will either already have attached the beadwork or it will be pinned to your body shape at the fitting. It is essential you bring the shoes you will be wearing on your wedding day to this appointment and all other fittings, as without them we cannot pin your hem and will require a further appointment. You may want to allow time in this fitting to try on accessories.
Second fitting: (4 weeks before your wedding.)
We will advise you if this is a necessary appointment depending on the fit of your dress. Any alterations required from this fitting will be carried out towards completing your dress for the final fitting.
Final fitting: (2 weeks before your wedding.)
Any small changes will be made if essential. If there are no changes to be made there will be an opportunity to take your dress away with you along with any accessories you have ordered with us.
Once your dress design has been finalised & you have received your quote, we will ask for a 50% non refundable deposit to confirm your order.
Toile fitting: 25% of the dress price will be due. Changes can be made to the design of your wedding dress however extra costs may incur.
First fitting: The final 25% payment of your dress is due. Any accessories will need to be ordered at this point and paid for in full.
