Deerhobbes is a specialist in design your own gown. We have been creating design-your-own for five years now. You can see the creations on our website. When you use the online dress design, our aim is to then make this a reality for you. This is our concept of Build A Bride. From the basic dress, using applique, trim and embellishments, we can build your design into the real thing. You will be able to see and try the design on your body before it is created. The designs will be hand-made in our studio in Hampshire.

Step One

Go to “Design your own” and follow the guide on screen. There are lots of choices to choose and mix to create your dream dress. If you do get yourself into any difficulty, feel free to call us and one of us will guide you through. Once you have created your design, a deposit of £100 will need to be paid for design fee.

Step Two

The designer will call you to discuss your design and make changes before finalising. A hand sketch will be made to confirm the final details of which will be sent to you to confirm.

Step Three

The customer is required now to email a confirmation of agreement to the design and pay £400 deposit.

Step Four

Once the design agreement is confirmed and the £400 has been paid, production of the dress will start.

Fifth Step

When the dress is completed, we will notify you to arrange an appointment to visit our boutique to pay off the remaining balance of £500 and for a fitting by our professional seamstress. (For brides ordering their dresses in person at our boutique, we will provide free fitting for the bridal gown but bridesmaids dress fittings will be chargeable. For online orders, all fittings are chargeable.)
