❤️ Sizing and fitting ❤️

‘Made to order/bespoke’ gowns are cut to your exact measurements and fitted to you in person - please note: customers must be able to visit my studio in Worthing for their dress fitting appointment as your design preferences are essential in making your dress bespoke to you. You are very welcome to blend together different elements of my designs to create your dream dress, e.g. changing the neckline, changing the lining colour, the back of the dress, adding or removing sleeves, deciding whether you’d like a train etc. Visit my website (www.thismodernlovebridal.com) and book a studio appointment to view the collection in person and see the beautiful fabrics and the endless possibilities of your bespoke gown!

Regrettably I’m unable to take orders for made to order/bespoke dresses online only - it’s essential to have your dress fitting in person to get the perfect fit. If you can’t make it to Worthing please see the ‘ready to wear/sample sale’ dresses in my Etsy store instead - I’ll be adding more styles throughout the year. The ‘ready to wear’ gowns are not custom made, but can be shipped anywhere in the world and you could choose to have them altered locally.

❤️ How much does a bespoke dress cost? ❤️

The dress listing on Etsy is the full cost of the dress including the design, materials, making and fitting. All made to order/bespoke bridal gowns start at £390 (e.g. The EVA design in guipiere lace) up to £900 (e.g. the EMILY design in chantilly lace with coloured tulle) and made to order/bespoke bridesmaid dresses start at £120.

This Modern Love is a small, independent business which does not retail through bridal boutiques; my designs are exclusive to This Modern Love’s Etsy shop.

Changing the design of a bespoke dress may incur additional cost where extra materials or time is taken to make it, or if you decide to choose a more expensive material e.g. silk crepe de chine instead of matt satin - but often there will be no additional charge to blend designs together to create your bespoke gown. Book an appointment for a complimentary design consultation to find out more...

❤️ How long does it take to make? ❤️

Just a couple of weeks! The first step is to visit my studio to choose your dress design. After choosing your dress I order the fabrics and laces for your bespoke design from my UK based suppliers, and we book a date for your bridal fitting. The dress fitting is only one appointment, and it is a full day appointment - you will be very much involved in the design of your dress and your dress will be fitted & made to your preferences.

I recommend having your dress fitting (where the dress is made and is ready to take home with you at the end of the day) around 1-2 months before the date of your wedding.

I don’t have a minimum ordering time, but please note that my diary is always very full during wedding season - I will update the Etsy shop when I’m fully booked and unable to take any more orders. I’m currently taking orders for weddings in 2019 - book a studio appointment to try on the collection!

❤️ About the Designer ❤️

I’m Anna, an award winning bridal designer and dressmaker based in Worthing near Brighton in the UK. I design and make every dress here in my seafront studio for my bridal wear label; ‘This Modern Love’ - specialising in simple, romantic, bohemian bridalwear.

💕 http://www.thismodernlovebridal.com 💕

❤️ About This Modern Love ❤️

The aesthetic for ‘This Modern Love’ is romantic, feminine, bohemian and beautifully simple dresses, all hand crafted using the finest materials such as lace, chiffon, crepe de chine, duchess satin and soft tulle. My dresses are designed in a delicate colour palette including of ivory, nude and blush tones.

All of my dresses are a simple, relaxed, pull on style which cinch in at the waist with elastic - they are not structured, heavy gowns and are quite unlike the traditional bridal gown. This Modern Love designs feel comfortable, lightweight and fluid. My customers are often women looking for a relaxed, vintage style or bohemian dress, with a woodland, rustic or festival theme to their wedding: brides looking for a gown which is simple, beautiful and original.

🌍 Ethical and sustainable 🌍

Each and every This Modern Love garment is designed and handmade here in the UK at my seaside studio - sustainable, ethical, slow fashion is at the heart of what I do. Instead of ‘fast fashion’ and exploitative labour in manufacturing, every Modern Love gown is thoughtfully designed and created to be worn, loved and cherished. This Modern Love is striving to be a zero waste business; in 2019 all excess materials are being donated to local community craft projects and local schools and my goal is to use recyclable packing materials for shipping my parcels on Etsy, as well as sourcing and working fabrics which are sustainably manufactured. As a lifelong vegetarian and part time vegan (!) I also offer vegan friendly material choices - contact me for more information on the options.
