Here at SOMD HQ, we are seeing more and more Brides leaving their wedding dress shopping right up to the final few months before their wedding!
Story of My Dress designs and our designer lines are all made to order, slow fashion and not mass-produced, therefore you can not be too organised when ordering your dress! The dresses on our rail will not be the ones that you purchase, they will be a dress customised and made for you.
We NEVER want to disappoint a bride because we cannot make a dress
within the given timescale.
Here are some FAQs to help ensure the perfect bridal journey with us.
