Every couture client at Mel Rose Couture will be given Mel's personal attention throughout the entire couture process.
From your first consultation Mel will gather your ideas, inspiration, and, personal style, to produce the first sketches of your gown, illustrating the design elements specified by you. Once the sketches of your gown have been finalised, Mel will then help you in choosing the perfect fabric to bring your gown to life. Your couture experience continues as your dream gown takes shape through pattern construction and toile, to several personalised fittings.
Then, all that remains, is to add the desired embellishments and complete the final hand stitching. Finally your completed gown is revealed. That first sketch has become a magnificent creation that fit's perfectly. The gown you always dreamed of.
Mel understands that couture may not be for every bride, but every bride deserves to have her gown fit perfectly. Not just in size, in style and personality as well. To help all brides feel their best on their big day, Mel Rose Couture offer a bespoke alterations and tailoring service. Whether it's a tweak, a resize, or a complete restyling, you and your gown are in the right hands.
"Mel was amazing to work with! I wore my mothers wedding dress, that was also worn by both of my sisters and altered to suit our individual taste. i was recommended to Mel and so glad i was. She made my dress exactly the way i wanted it, she kept me calm when she could see me getting stressed over the whole wedding planning process. She really was amazing!" - Kiera
