Consult with Angela

Angela Kim Couture Custom Wedding Dress Design Consultation

1. Consult with Angela about your bespoke wedding dress design.

The first step of the design process is your free consultation. This appointment is all about getting to know you—your personality, your taste, and your wedding style. This is a collaborative process, so together we’ll discuss silhouettes, fabrics, and finishes. We’ll take your measurements, decide on the design, sign our contract, and finalize your timeline and price. Your consultation can be conducted in person at our atelier, or virtually via video chat, phone or email.

2. Select materials and fabrics.

Angela will help you to select the right fabrics, lace and beading for your bespoke wedding dress design. We source our fabrics from high quality vendors around the world. If your design requires something not readily available, it’s very likely that Angela can create it for you.

3. Angela creates an original sketch of your custom bridal design.

Your dream dress takes one step closer to becoming reality when Angela creates a detailed sketch of your design. You’ll love seeing your project come to life on the page. And you’ll get to keep the original sketch as a souvenir and reminder of the experience. There’s nothing like seeing your dream take shape, and viewing the sketch is when our brides start to get that exciting feeling—yes, this is really happening!

4. Angela constructs your one-of-a-kind, custom couture wedding dress.

After she has taken your measurements, Angela will draft an original pattern, adjust the fit during fitting sessions, and finish the garment with final details like hand placed appliques and beading.
