When should I begin bridal shopping?

Indulge in the Ultimate Bridal Experience with Marcela Giocanti. Our recommendation is to begin your bridal journey 12-10 months before your nuptials for a seamless shopping journey. For our made-to-order collection of gowns, the best time to place your bridal order is 10-8 months prior. Custom designs and bespoke speciality gowns require 12-9 months for production.

Rush orders are accommodated on a limited basis with the exception of veils and accessories. To ensure a seamless experience, we encourage you to contact us in advance to discuss your options and allow us to accommodate your requests.

Do I need an appointment?

Step into our atelier, where each bride deserves a bespoke shopping experience. Our appointments are private, by appointment only, and our dedicated team will work closely with you to make your dreams a reality. Each appointment is a luxurious hour of one-on-one attention with a £50 deposit, which serves as a credit towards any gown purchased.

What is the average price range of your gowns?

Our gowns range from £3,000 and up, with the majority in the £3,500 range from our Made-to-Order Collection. 

For Custom and Bespoke Designs, we take pride in crafting unique and personalized designs that reflect your individual style. Allow us to bring your bridal vision to life. Contact us to discuss the endless possibilities of a Custom or Bespoke design tailored exclusively for you.

How does the ordering process work?

Our ordering process begins with congratulations as a Marcela Giocanti Bride!

Next, we will take your measurements and begin the process of making your gown. Due to the made-to-order nature of our studio, full payment is required upfront. Once payment is complete, your order will begin production at our atelier immediately. We work closely with our team to communicate and ensure your order is completed in a timely fashion. 

Once your order is complete at our atelier in approximately 4-6 months, we will reach out to schedule a Fitting Appointment. During this time, you have the opportunity to try on your gown and make any additional fit changes. 

Bespoke Brides will be contacted to schedule a series of design and fit sessions to ensure your custom toile is fitted perfectly before the final gown is made in your chosen bridal fabrics and details are finalised.

What sample sizes are available to try on?

Our studio samples range from select sizes 8-14 UK and all orders are made-to-order, reducing fashion industry waste.

We plan to offer a more inclusive range of sample sizes in the future as our business grows. For Bespoke Brides, we offer custom-measured toiles (sample garments) of your design to try at each fitting. 

What does Made-to-Order mean?

Made-to-Order is a refined production process that begins only after you place your order, ensuring that your unique style is never compromised. Embrace the future of ethical fashion and make a statement that speaks to your values, all while reducing fashion industry waste and making a positive impact on the world.

Do you offer alterations?

In-house alterations are available in the UK for Made-to-Order Bridal Collections and are inclusive for bespoke bridal orders above £7000.

 At this time, we do not offer in-house alterations for brides outside the UK for Made-to-Order bridal collections. However, we are dedicated to ensuring your wedding day look is nothing short of perfect. Our team of experts is delighted to suggest the services of highly-skilled and professional local tailors, who will cater to all your bespoke needs and elevate your bridal attire to the next level.
