How long does it usually take if you send in pictures and have them custom create a dress? I don’t want to spend over $500 ideally. Not sure how much they charge for the custom ones. Thoughts? Suggestions?
I’m having a rainbow wedding. I want a ball gown with tulle on the skirt and then on the bodice I want something lacey without silver or bling with a lace up back. I like this girl’s skirt but the back of the skirt looks a little much for me and I also want strapless. I love how only like 40% of the bottom has color and it has white tulle over it to make it a little less in your face.
I love the cut of this one too, but I wouldn’t want the see through back because I’m not sure if this has boning and I will definitely need a bra. lol Also, i’m not sure how i would incorporate the tulle in this one.
I recognize the rainbow thing is weird and everything, but it’s fun, quirky, and very me so it’s important to me. FI always says Rolling Stones – She’s a Rainbow reminds him of me and I’d love to play that as my Bridal march and have an appropriate dress!

I guess I made everyone run away with the rainbow dress.

@smilestorm: after sending an enquiry to them, they replied in less than 24 hrs to request better quality pictures of my inspiration dress. After I had done this, they replied within 4 hours with the quote. Mine was a short dress but quite fancy (lace, keyhole back …) and would have come to around 250$.
I’m sure they can make yours for under 500$. Just be sure to be clear in your communication of what you want. Remember English isn’t their native language. Me for example I don’t quite understand whether you would like your dress to be exavtly like the upper picture or more like the second one but with the first pic’s rainbow effect in the skirt? You should know exactly what you have in mind, if you want a combination, mark each picture and wrote what exactly you want to keep and what is to be changed.

@MsquareM: great advice. I’m really considering it. Going to purchase the dress probably in April.

I have also emailed them for a custom dress quote. They replied to my initial enquiry, asked me to send photos, and replied within 24 hours. I was advised it could take up to 35 days for them to make the dress and then up to 15 days for postage. I was quoted US$227.50, plus postage.
