Fulfilling your dream of having a custom-made bridal gown is possible even if you are residing outside Manila, Philippines. Below is a step by step procedure to guide the bride along the process and to ensure effective communication between the bride and the designer.
STEP 1: Please answer the questions below and email your response to firstname.lastname@example.org. Should you have difficulty describing your dream wedding gown, you may include photos.
What is your full name? Current country of residence?
When is your wedding day? Where will your reception be?
What is the setting of your reception? (Beach, Outdoors, Hotel etc.)
Describe the look and feel of your dream wedding gown. (Adjectives will do)
What are your body’s best assets? Any areas you want to hide?
Do you have a preferred cut? (Click here for Gown Info) Do you have any preferred fabric?
Do you have a preferred color?
Any preferred construction details: shirring, pleats, flounce?
Any preferred accents: lace, bows, floral details, beadwork?
Do you have a budget range in mind?
Any plans to go to Manila for fitting? Include estimated flight details.
Include full-length pictures (including entourage if applicable): front, side and back view in fitted clothing. Please have your arms at the side for the photos and stand straight. This will guide me to create the design that will best flatter your figure.
STEP 2: A quote will be made based on information and photos provided. Upon booking, the downpayment is 50% based on the agreed price and 50% full payment upon completion of the gown. Bank transfer payments are accepted through Banco De Oro or PayPal. Once the downpayment is settled, a receipt and Service Agreement Form will be sent.
STEP 3: With each new bride, Camille creates new design options. At this point your wedding gown design is a collaborative work in progress, your personal inputs and ideas are taken into consideration for any design changes.
STEP 4: Please note that changes in the design and fabrics to be used must be finalized before production starts. Once the design is finalized, a very detailed and easy to follow measurement guide will be sent or you may refer to this link https://camillegarciabridal.wordpress.com/measurement-guide/
STEP 5: Production of your wedding gown begins. Fittings depend largely on your availability and flight schedule. If your schedule permits, there will be a mock dress fitting to check fitting and proportions, and to minimize alterations on the actual bridal gown. Photos of the actual dress without any beadwork or embellishment can be sent so you can see the production progress.
Your dream wedding dress is complete and you’re on your way to become a blushing bride!
