Questions and Answers

question has been submitted to Easy Weddings for review.

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

How long do you need to make a gown?

We recommend starting the design process at least 6 months before your wedding date! But we know brides are very busy people, so do not hesitate to contact us with a shorter timeframe and we will hopefully still be able to help! 

Do you make gowns in different colours?

What ever you are dreaming off we can make you! In this case, we would love to take you fabric shopping to help you find the perfect shade you are looking for! 

I can not find a wedding gown at the wedding dress shops, what options do I have?

Elissa made me the most beautiful wedding dress I could have ever asked for. I came to Elissa with a lot of different ideas and she worked with me to create a design that was perfect for my body shape and my personality. I trusted Elissa with the design rather then going to her with a set plan and I’m so glad I did as she worked with me to decide what worked best for me including helping me choose the most beautiful fabric. There is something so special about seeing your gown going through the stages of being made. Elissa’s attention to detail, passion, and creativeness is truly inspiring and I am so grateful that she was able to make my gown. I have recommended her to all of my friends who are looking for an incredible wedding dress.

Thank you so much Elissa for creating the most amazing dress I have ever owned. The whole journey from start to finish was such a beautiful journey I enjoyed so much. You are so talented and created something I will treasure forever not just when I wore it on the wedding day. I cannot describe how beautiful I felt in the dress! Xx

Thank you Candice. I loved all your fittings with your gorgeous bridal party and wonderful mum. The dress sparkled on the day and so did you.

Elissa listened to me describe my dream dress and she turned it into reality. So incredibly thorough, knowledgeable, considerate and accomodating. From day one she told me to always be open and honest with how I am feeling about the dress and she will ensure to make any changes needed until it's perfect. And it was. Absolutely perfect.

Thank you Teo, it was a pleasure making you your wedding dress. We loved the beautiful Australian native leaves you used as a bouquet.

I was one of the many brides who tried on dress after dress and found myself heartbroken when I just couldn’t find “the one”. I didn’t hesitate in contacting Elissa Marie designs after I had seen the love and Finnesse she put in every one of her dresses. She listened to everything I asked and exceeded my expectations ! From the design, to the lace selection and the entire creation of my beautiful wedding dress, Elissa created something I only ever could have dreamed of! I was an interstate bride and she made the entire experience seamless. I cannot recommend her highly enough !!

Elissa is one talented dress maker and designer. She listens to what you have to say and pays attention to every fine detail. We enjoyed the whole process from selecting the material to designing the style and fitting it perfectly. She was amazing.

The dresses were custom made in the colour I loved. They didn't orignally come in the turquose colour but they did it for me. The dresses took less than 6mths to arrive and they were perfect. Jessica provided a fantastic service she was so helpful and friendly.
