from our brides:
I loved being a Mara Marie bride! It was so wonderful to have a part in designing my dress so that it was unique to me. I was so happy I decided to have Mara do my dress for my rehearsal dinner too! I felt so comfortable and beautiful in both dresses! I couldn’t have asked for better attention or communication while my dress was being designed and made. I very highly recommend Mara Marie to any brides that want to feel beautifully themselves on their wedding day!
HOW LONG IS THE PROCESS
Six months is the shortest amount of time that is needed to create a wedding gown without paying a rush fee. Anything after 6 months is just a bonus!
WHAT DOES THE PROCESS LOOK LIKE
It all starts with sketching, fabric researching, and the finer details of your wedding and hearing how your dress fits into your day. Once we have finalized your wedding day look, I start creating "photo-types" that mock your wedding gown / rehearsal gown. I conduct about 3-4 fits before ensuring the perfect fit for your wedding day. Then the exciting time comes when we bring it to life in final fabric!
No worries! That is why I don't need more then six months to create your look! It helps to have you closest to your wedding day figure as possible but that is why I conduct 3-4 fits, so it allows for any weight loss.
I LIVE FAR AWAY
A. FaceTime is a beautiful thing! If you only are able to be in Minneapolis a few times before your wedding, no worries! We can FaceTime to figure out important details and then when you are in Minneapolis we conduct the fittings!
B. If you never are in the Minneapolis area then I would create your gown to your measurements, to ensure the closest fit. Then a few months before your wedding you could take it to an alterations specialist near you! That would change the process to 10 months!
