Couture wedding dresses and special occasion dresses, made to measure by an experienced dressmaker to ensure the perfect fit. Elizabeth Ayers can create completely individual, bespoke or alternatively styled and coloured bridal gowns not found on the high street. We believe that a wedding dress should reflect the bride’s personality and be a unique expression of emotion and style, as well as flattering her figure.
Elizabeth Ayers couture wedding dresses are created from a design conceived by the bride and developed to the highest standard of quality. At the initial consultation a design is drawn up and material options discussed. Once this is done a quote will be calculated based on the complexity of the design, work involved and the materials used. If necessary, different design and material options can be quoted to cater for all budgets.
After measurements are taken Elizabeth will mock up a toile (a simple calico version of the bodice) in order to get the correct fit before using the final fabrics. At this stage the design can be discussed in more detail and modifications made to the design and the fit. At the next fitting the dress will start to come together and the overall silhouette of the dress can take shape. Once again fitting is made and design details can be discussed.
Elizabeth takes great care not to rush ahead too much at each stage so that alterations can be made along the way as needed. Once finished the dress is completely unique to the bride, and the joint creative process by Elizabeth and her client results in something truly precious.
Elizabeth Ayers also offers a range of fantastically stylish and flattering couture wedding dresses, wedding outfits and trouser suits for mature brides, that will ensure they feel comfortable and confident on their wedding day.
