We are here to revolutionse the wedding industry!
Aeternum Bridal creates luxury fully made to measure wedding and evening dresses for brides-to-be.
Our mission is to offer premium quality bespoke wedding dresses without the high street markup. How do we do it? From our workshops to you: we only sell directly to you, no middlemen involved.
Traditionally, bridal boutiques dictate styles, hide pricing information, provide impersonal in-store experiences and fail to offer inclusive sizing.
• We work with a number of workshops and suppliers across Europe and sell direct to you ourselves - we do not sell via retailers and we never will. This means that we can pass on significantly better prices to you.
• A normal luxury high street made-to-measure wedding dress typically starts from around £3,000 .
• Our luxury made-to-measure dresses start from just under £700.
Your dream dress will be handmade to your specific measurements using the finest of fabrics and materials. All of our dresses are handmade in Europe. Unlike a huge amount of companies, we do not use Chinese manufacturers. Please feel free to visit our website for full details, videos, and of course...the dresses! www.aeternumbridal.com With love Aeternum Bridal
Frequently Asked Questions:
What does Aeternum Bridal do?
Aeternum creates bespoke luxury wedding dresses for brides-to-be, whether it is for your ceremony or reception we have a design that you will love! You can either choose from a vast selection of bespoke dresses or design your own dream wedding dress from scratch.
Where are you based?
We are based in London, England. We do, however, make dresses for brides all over the world.
Do you have a shop or boutique?
We do not have a shop and we do not hold stock. All dresses are fully made to your measurements, whether for one of our designs or your own; this is why we are able to offer such competitive prices. We will be happy to arrange an appointment in central London if you would like to meet. Our aim is to keep the overheads as low as possible whilst providing outstanding quality dresses.
How does the process work?
Step 1: CHOOSE You choose from our vast collection of luxury bespoke wedding dresses or design your own dream dress! Whether you choose one of our existing designs or whether you prefer to go fully bespoke, we will assist you every step of the way. If you wish to design your own wedding dress then please feel free to send us images of your inspiration or any ideas you might have and we will work with you to bring your dream dress to life. Step 2: MEASURE We believe that your wedding dress should be made to your specific measurements which is why we do not make dresses in standard sizes. Instead we create your dream dress to suit your unique figure based on the measurements provided. We can link you with our trusted seamstresses in London, UK if convenient. Alternatively, you can use an experienced seamstress in your area. Many brides also choose to simply have a friend take their measurements which is also possible and we will provide detailed instructions specific to your dress design should this be your preferred route. Step 3: DELIVER Your dream wedding dress will be made to your measurements and delivered to your door! For existing collections your dress will be delivered to you within 3-4 months depending on the season and complexity of the design. If you choose to design your own dress, it will be delivered to you within 5-6 months. Generally, we would allow for up to 1 month for the design process, 3-4 months for production and recommend allowing up to 2 months for the alternation period. If you would like to design your own dress, we would recommend starting the process at least 7-8 months prior to your wedding day. Step 4: ALTER Once your dress has been made it is standard practice for some alterations to be required, irrespective of whether you order your dress from a high street store or Aeternum Bridal. We have partnered with one of the leading seamstresses in London who work for the likes of Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Prada to both measure our brides-to-be and alter their dresses, if required. We welcome all our brides to have the alterations done here and we will cover the cost of up to two simple alterations. If London is not convenient for you, please make alternative arrangements with an experienced seamstress near you (in this case you will be responsible for the cost of any alterations).
Do you do finance or accept partial payments?
We understand that weddings can be very expensive and we will do all we can to assist you. Please contact us to discuss payment options. A minimum of 50% of the price of the dress would need to be paid in order to start production of your dress.
What is your return and refund policy?
If at any point throughout the process you decide to cancel your order, we will issue a 50% refund. If your dress does not meet your expectations once delivered, you must contact Aeternum Bridal within 5 days of receiving your dress to initiate the return and refund process. The dress must be returned in the original condition and packaging it was sent in. We do not accept returns or issue refunds for wedding gowns that have been worn or amended by a seamstress. We understand that buying a wedding dress is a very important purchase which is why we offer this refund policy to give you the confidence to work with us. We are confident that we can bring your dream wedding dress to life.
How long will it take to make my dress?
For existing design collections your dress will be delivered to you within 3-4 months depending on the season and complexity of the design. If you choose to design your own dress, it will be delivered to you within 5-6 months. Generally, we would allow for up to 1 month for the design process, 3-4 months for production and recommend allowing up to 2 months for the alternation period.
