Heavily embellished designs are usually near $2500.
WE OFFER 2 PRICINGS
A' La Carte Pricing - After we give our estimate you can add in what you need (i.e. personal measurements, custom changes, rush production, upgraded (silk) fabrics, varied shipping methods, fabric/color swatches, sketches, multiple consultations, pictures, extensive correspondence or any unique & special assistance requested or required by the client that is outside of the norm). The final total cannot be calculated until the custom garment has been completed and the buyer no longer needs our time and/or services. A non-refundable 50% cutting fee deposit is required on all made to order items. Multiple piece orders can receive a discount.
Flat Fee Pricing - This is all-inclusive pricing must be requested upfront. Flat fee pricing will be higher than an A' la Carte. However the price is set and wont change based on your needs during the process. Full payment upfront is required with Flat Fee Pricing.
RUSH ORDERS can be stressful. So if you can avoid them by ordering well in advance.
STANDARD ORDERS are commonly known to take around 6-9 months for a normal design. However it is wise to always give as much possible time as you can to allow for production, shipping and any possible modifications - IF needed.
In all cases, please allow as much time as possible if you can.
We can produce any type of custom wedding or evening dress, in one of two ways...
Pictures - We can use any pictures you have as inspiration to create your custom design. Just email us the pictures, let us know of any preferences or changes, and we will respond with an estimate.
Sketch - If you do not have a picture to help explain what you want we can sketch a design to help you envision your ideals. Simply provide us with a written description of what you want. And our design team will then compile those preferences in a sketch. A non-refundable good faith deposit of $250 is required prior to sketching. You can pay this fee byclicking here.
We can replicate any bridal gown or evening dress (with any changes) using any picture you have as inspiration.

Please allow as much time as possible for production, shipping & adjustments - if needed!
Our only limitations are a clients price range or time frame
The more time we have for production the closer we can get to the original.
There are several ways to get a dress to cost less but look similar. One is to simple change the fabrication from a silk based content to a poly based content. Another is hand beaded fabric vs machine beaded fabrics.
Realistically no replica can be 100% exactly like the original couture garment. It would not be practical to think that a $1,000 dress will be 100% "exactly" the same as a $10,000 dress.
The more intricate, detailed or embellished a design is the harder it will be to replicate. For example a fabric dress with no embellishments will of course be much easier to replicate than a dress that is fully beaded with intricate hand work.
If your garment must be 100% exactly like the original we urge you to purchase from the original designer. But if your budget does not allow for the original designers price and you can accept an actual replication of the original that is as close as possible then we would love to assist you.
Many times we will get asked "how close" can we get. The degree of closeness is extremely subjective. What one may feel is close another may not.
The budget, time frame, size, image quality or personal changes can all affect the out come of any replication.
The obvious goal is to make the item look as close as possible to the original (again with your budget in mind).
You should be able to take a picture of the original and a picture of your version and very easily be able to tell one was inspired by the other.
It would serve us no purpose to ship the garment otherwise - hence our return policy.
