A Stunning Range of Bespoke Wedding Dresses

At GWM, we believe that a bride’s gown should not only reflect her style and personality but also make a lasting statement on her special day. Each custom made bridal wear is designed and crafted by our dedicated team, who are passionate about their craft and committed to creating bespoke bridal dresses that are as extraordinary as the bride herself. If she is a strong, mysterious yet feminine woman with impeccable taste and a desire to stand out in a unique style, she deserves a dress that surpasses the ordinary.

That’s why our philosophy revolves around designing, developing, and creating truly special and memorable bespoke wedding dresses that focus on originality, breaking away from the idea of a “uniform” or something that has been seen and done before. It’s the intricate design details, unique laces, custom embroidery, and personalized elements that give our gowns soul and an unmistakable sense of individualism.

Last but not least, all our gowns, clothing and accessories are designed in Melbourne, Australia and Made in our workshop in Hanoi, Vietnam.

The Process Of Creating Your Bespoke Bridal Dresses

The process of searching for the perfect bespoke bridal dresses is a creative journey that involves a deep collaboration between you, the bride, and our talented team. Together, we will merge minds and visions to develop a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. It all begins with a detailed sketch, meticulously outlining the fabric, trims, intricate details, and embellishments that have been thoughtfully selected and agreed upon during our initial consultations. As we progress, the design evolves through a series of fittings, ensuring the final pattern is perfected and the gown fits flawlessly. 

Every custom made bridal wear we create is a work of couture art, meticulously crafted by hand. Once we reach the final fabric stage, your bespoke bridal dress is carefully cut, and then the magic truly unfolds. Our skilled artisans embellish and detail your dress, pouring their expertise into every stitch. We firmly believe that a dress must be exquisite from every angle. Thus, our focus lies in creating breathtaking embellishments, intricate beading, and exquisite embroidery that transform the dress into a true masterpiece.

I was looking for a jumpsuit for my Wedding, which was very hard to find until I came across GWM. Lily knew exactly what I wanted and when I tried on the pants suit and top, I knew I had found my wedding outfit… then Lily pulled out the magic. My lace overcoat… loved it as soon as I put it on. Thank you, ladies, for making my perfect wedding outfit. The amount of people that said they loved my outfit was wonderful. They all especially liked the change when I took off the lace overcoat and added the jewelled belt. Most people thought I had a complete change of clothes... it was very special. So thank you… I would highly recommend Lily and her team.

Produces high quality couture. Lily is exceptionally talented. She understood my vision and on our very first meeting she turned my own hand drawn sketch into a professional piece of art. Fast forward to the end product and the workmanship was EXCELLENT. The dress was so intricate and complicated & Lily and her team constantly continued for absolute perfection (which they achieved). Thank you Lily & team, for producing such a complex, detailed & EXCEPTIONAL wedding dress! I could not have been or be happier. Xo

Ines was amazing. She's not only a designer but she also helped me find my dress. I've been to a few other places prior but her service just out shone the rest. I don't know if it's because I got in during their Sample sales week but the dress prices are very resonable. I espeically loved the fact that Ines helped pin up my dress to really help me see what it'll look like after it's been altered - which really helped when "saying yes to the dress".

Wedding dress shopping was a horrid experience for me from start to finish. In tears I turned to GWM Wedding to help me create my dream dress. The GWM team went above and beyond to make miracles happened! I wouldn't have had a dress if the girls didn't work super hard to pull it off right at the last second!. Highly recommend !!!!

FAQs

WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO CONTACT US?

The best way to contact us is via email. So, that’s info@gwmwedding.com.au. Or Direct message at GWM Wedding Facebook/Instagram

WHERE IS THE FLAGSHIP STUDIO LOCATED?

Our Showroom is in Camberwell Melbourne, Australia.
Our Workshop is in Hanoi, Vietnam
But we definitely can work with brides from all over.

WHEN DO I GET TO COLLECT MY GOWN?

I usually suggest two weeks before the wedding, with one week before the wedding being the very latest. That’s usually because in those last few days or weeks, brides tend to lose weight, which is pretty normal.

So, collecting your dress one of two weeks before the wedding means we have time to do any final adjustments and you’ll have enough peace of mind to not panic.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK MY FIRST CONSULTATION?

Normal time is different to bridal time. All of a sudden when planning a wedding, you need to book everything a year out so you need to be organised and plan ahead.
With the Ready to Wear collection, I recommend a minimum of 4 months to come in. The process of getting a couture gown made takes approximately 8 to 10 months. That’s when I would recommend coming in for a consultation. Sometimes certain fabrics can take some time to come in or design so 6 to 8 months before your wedding would be the best time.

DO YOU OFFER COUTURE TO BRIDES INTERNATIONALLY?

If you’re an interstate or international client, we’d love to hear from you, and we can arrange a Skype consultation. It’s actually not too difficult to work with brides from all over the world. So, after our Skype consultation, we request measurements and if you go for a couture gown, we then make the gown according to your measurements as close as possible.

I always recommend if you’re buying a dress via Skype, internationally or interstate, that you have someone to help you on your end with minor alterations. The most common alterations that might be needed include the hem and the closure may need to be tighter. That’s usually the extent of the alterations.

HOW DO I PICK THE RIGHT BRIDAL DESIGNER?

My advice to brides is to go with whichever designer you have a natural connection with. You know when you meet someone whether you click or not, and I like to work with brides that I click with, especially when it’s a one-on-one process. It’s a long process, it’s like 6 to 8 months, so you really want to have a good mojo.

Brides definitely need to figure out whose style they trust so if you’ve been following a brand for a really long time, and you like the majority of what they do, then you know you’re going to like what they create for you because you like their personality, their aesthetic.

WHAT HAPPENS IN A COUTURE DESIGN CONSULTATION?

During your couture design appointment, I’ll sit down with you and I’d like you to share with me your ideas, inspiration images, what you do and don’t like, what you want to hide and what you want to show off on your body. I basically want to get to know your aesthetic, get to know your style, and then work with you to design the dress.

WHAT IS THE PRICE RANGE FOR YOUR GOWNS?

GWM gowns range in price from $1500 – $5000 AUD.
Custom Made wedding dresses start from $2000 AUD

WILL THE COLOUR OF MY ACCESSORY MATCH MY GOWN?

All of our accessories, veils and headpieces are made to complement the hue of our gowns. If you are unsure, please feel free to speak to our online support team at info@gwmwedding.com.au who will be able to guide you.

WILL MY B&L ACCESSORY MATCH MY GOWN?

All of our accessories, veils and headpieces are made to complement the hue and fabrication of our gowns. If you are unsure, please feel free to speak to our online support team who will assist you with your choice.

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY GOWNS AND/OR ACCESSORY?

As all of our gowns and accessories are entirely hand-beaded, we consider them heirloom pieces to be handed down from one generation to the next. We recommend having your wedding gown professionally dry-cleaned after your wedding day with a company that has experience with hand-beaded gowns. Wrap your gown and accessories in tissue paper and store them in a dry, cool and shaded space.
