For all the lovely brides I’ll be meeting in the coming weeks and into the New Year, here’s a handy page on how ‘viewing appointments’ (trying on and designing) and dress ‘fitting appointments’ (where your dress is made and fitted to you) work here at This Modern Love… http://www.thismodernlovebridal.com/made-to-order-bridal-how-it-works

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “I am so happy I found This Modern Love! The designs are all such beautiful, floaty, bohemian creations! I was able to visit Anna’s studio to try on some sample gowns and see the fabrics (which are gorgeous!). Anna took my measurements and then at my fitting appointment sewed all the sections together, talking me through each phase, making suggestions and listening to how I would like it to sit. It was such a lovely, relaxed environment and watching Anna at work was amazing. I feel like I came away with an artisan made, beautiful dress of dreams. Can’t recommend enough.”
