    Well I can highly recommend www.glamourousgowns.co.uk



    I got them off recommendations on here when I joined and the website is great for ideas even if you can't get to the shop.

    My dressmaker/designer is www.joanneflemingdesign.com I had my first fitting 2 weeks ago and now v excited. Her website says bespoke bridal from £800 but mine is only going to be £480 as the style is quite simple. She is based in Brighton, so it's only 50 mins from Victoria (I am in London too, but didn't much like the London prices).
  • ok thanks also how do i cut the costs , if i go to a dress maker and show her pictures is it cheaper then??

    I think with my designer it is cheaper if you pick a dress that either she has made before or that is very similar (i.e. minor adaptations). Also fabric choice will make a difference. The cost will depend on how complicated the dress is to make. Mine is a 1950s style with a basic shape and has no lace, embroidery or beading so that's why it's costing less. The more fancy it is and the more (and more expensive) fabric is needed, the more it will cost.
