  • How much will my custom wedding gown cost?
    Custom wedding gowns begin at $2000 and go up from there based on design. During the consultation we will discuss your design and all the details. Once a final design is agreed upon a customized quote is created specifically for your gown. A deposit of 20% is due at the consultation in order to go forward with your gown. Pricing cannot be done over the phone/online, you must schedule a consultation for a quote to be given.
  • Is there a fee to book a consultation?
    No. Consultations are free of charge and there is no obligation. The main purpose of the consultation is for you to decide if the custom dress route is for you. We will discuss every detail of your design along with price and time frame. It is up to you to decide whether or not you would like to go forward.
  • How long does a custom dress take to make?
    It can take anywhere from 4-6 months to create a custom wedding gown, with 6 months being the preffered time frame. Scheduling more than 6 months in advance is recommended, once the we hit our custom gown limit for the year, we will not take any additional clients. Please note that hours and hours of work is put into each gown. This is not a rushed process. There will be multiple fittings in order to ensure your gown is created perfectly for you. Rush designs are rarely accpeted. In the case that a spot is open, a $500 rush fee will be added to your total.
  • Do you do bridal alterations?
    Yes. We specialize and pride ourselves in the work we put into bridal alterations. Your dress does not have to be a Herrera Custom Bridal gown in order for alterations to be done. We do all kinds of bridal alterations ranging from the simple things such as shortening the hem, adding a bustle, taking or letting out the dress, to major redesigns such as sizing up or down MORE than 3 sizes or completely redesigning an off the rack or heirloom gown.
  • Do you have a price list for bridal alterations?
    No. I do not give pricing for bridal alterations over the phone/online. Each wedding dress is different. I cannot give an accurate quote until you come in for a consulation and I am able to see the dress on you. At that time you will be given a quote, from there you can decide if you would like to go forward. In order to move forward with your alterations half of your balance will be due at the time of your consultation.
  • Do you make gowns other than bridal?
    Yes. We create all kinds of special occasion gowns. Each gown is priced based on the design. Custom Prom dresses begin at $1000 and go up from there based on design. To begin a Prom dress, we recommend scheduling a consultation for December. We only take a certain number of Prom clients each season, so inquiring early is best. Custom Mother of the Bride/Groom gowns begin at $600 and go up from there based on design. You should allow 4 months for this type of gown to be created. Custom Flower girl dresses begin at $450 and go up from there, based on deign. Flower girl dresses take about 3 months to be completed. We DO NOT take custom bridesmaid dress orders, as we are not able to take multiple custom dresses with the same due date, in addition to our current work load.
  • Where will the consulations/fitting take place?
    The consulations and fittings all take place in my studio which is. located on the side of my home. There is a sidewalk leading from the driveway that takes you right up to the studio entrance, so you do not have to enter through my home. I do not contract out any of my work. It is all done in studio by me.
  • What does the dress making process consist of?
    The dress making process is an incredible one! You will see your dress come to life with each fitting. After the consultation we will have on average a total of 6 fittings. The first few fittings will be done using a sample gown. The sample is used to prefect the fit. We will take apart, draw on and reconstruct your sample as needed until you are completely satisfied with the fit. Then and only then will we cut into your dress fabric. Everything is done on a step by step basis. I will not move forward until you give me the ok to do so. Through the entire process we will work together to bring your dress to life. Your dress is not done, until it is perfect.
