How does an appointment work?

In our atelier you will find our complete sample collection, which includes dresses and accessories that are not available online. We have a large collection of wedding separates available, which is always an excellent starting point to the customization process, as it allows the mixing and matching of elements styles, helping generate and visualize ideas as they flow. These will serve as a mood-board around which we can design your custom wedding gown.

You’ll be able to see, touch, and choose the textiles you love most, exploring every available option down to the shade of white or personalized color you have always dreamt of! A Larimeloom wedding dress is always made to order, and often the resulting dress is one of a kind, unique to the bride that it is made for.

As for hand-dying and custom colors, we have a selection of sample dresses that you will be able to try on, and lots of swatches of silks we dyed in the past, which will give you an idea of the wide range of colors available.

What should I expect form the appointment?

You should expect a lot of fun! We aren’t your typical wedding dress boutique, but a creative and informal atelier, where we aim to create a relaxed and easygoing atmosphere.

We encourage you to voice your opinions while trying on dresses, telling us what you like and dislike about each piece. This will be useful in designing the perfect dress for you. A dress that will suit you in its shape, cut, color and materials.

Will l find the complete Larimeloom collection in your showroom?

Sometimes a few of the dresses available online won’t be in the showroom during your appointment because they might be on loan for photoshoots, or because we just had a sample sale to renew and update our line. If you have already fallen in love with a specific piece of the collection, please let us know in advance so that we can be sure to have a version of it available for you to try on, whenever possible.

If you are particularly interested in a dress or customized detail you saw on one of our brides or on Instagram, please let us know, we can integrate it in your own custom design!

Can I visit you without an appointment?

We usually prefer a heads-up! We want to be able to dedicate our complete attention to each of you, guaranteeing the most personal and intimate setting possible.

But if you are passing by and just want to stop for a quick visit, do not hesitate giving us a call!

We will be happy to welcome you if we can!

How long does an appointment last?

We dedicate up to two hours per appointment. This allows for plenty of time to try on as many dresses and options as you feel you need, and time to discuss details as well.

If you are looking for dresses for multiple people (for example, a wedding dress for the bride and formal gowns for bridesmaids, parents or family members) please let us know so that we can reserve extra time for your group.

How many people can come with me to my appointment?

Our studio is in a large open space setting so we don’t have any specific restrictions.

We recommend bringing a rather small group of trusted people that knows you well. Their opinion tends to resonate more compared to larger friend groups who do lend to a very festive mood but also create a lot of confused and contrasting opinions.

Our suggestion is for a group of around 5 people, plus the bride.

What are the prices of the wedding dresses?

Our design’s prices vary depending on the custom details and textiles you choose. You can explore our shop where all prices are visible to get a general idea.

We will provide a detailed estimate of costs for the specific dress or dresses you fall in love with in the days following your appointment, and you will be able to take all the time you need to think it over.

Customizing a design does not have a fee, the price will depend exclusively based on the design details chosen.

How early should I place my order?

The creation of a custom wedding gown requires a lot of time and care. In our busiest months (between April and September) we sometimes are not able to satisfy all requests due to the intense workload. Everything is made in studio so there is not a fixed deadline, it just depends on our workload at the time of order.

Our suggestion to customers is always to place the order as early as possible. That way you will be sure to be able to wear your dream dress on the day of your wedding!

The order is confirmed only after payment (in part or in full depending on our agreement) is received.

Last minute requests.

If you don’t have a lot of time, do not hesitate contacting us! When possible, we will be more than happy to find the perfect solution for you.

In addition to being able to accommodate rush orders, we have a wide selection of samples available for sale, perfect for last minute requests.

If I find my dress, how does the payment work?

Every design is made expressly upon order, so unfortunately you won’t be able to take your dress home with you directly.

We like allowing you time to think things over before placing your order, so we never ask for a down payment on the day of the appointment.

A few days after your visit, we will send you a detailed estimate of costs for the dress (or dresses) you chose. We always ask for a down payment of 50% of the total to confirm your order, and a full payment before you pick your dress.

When should I arrive?

We serve only one bride at a time and we do not have a waiting room, so please do not arrive too early (3-5 minutes is enough), to avoid disturbing the group before you. If you arrive late, you will have less time available, as we run a full daily schedule with two hours reserved for each customer.

In case you are early, we ask you to please wait outside until the time of your appointment.

Thanks! ^_^

Usually at this time of year my days are a whirlwind of activity, with so many wedding dresses in the making and to make, brides coming in for their first time to try on wedding dresses, others coming by for the first fitting or to pick up their dress.⁠
⁠
Bouncing ideas about shoes (current favorite: @lascarpettadivenere, check out her profile...and website!), photos of bouquets and hairstyles flooding my inbox (I have a Pinterest folder FULL if you need ideas. Florals especially have me swooning. Just search for Larimeloom over there).⁠
⁠
Now it's all quiet, with the dresses hanging patiently. But if you want a virtual tour of our beautiful, squeaking new atelier head over to the link in bio, because there's lots of photos! ⁠
⁠
Squeaking new because we had just finished up this place, we were just finally finding our groove when life threw us this curveball. But we find that though different, have still have loads to do. It's the right time to get everything straight on the backend, a time for a virtual spring cleaning, and in a way I am so thankful for that. ⁠

The dress is the new Poppie gown. ⁠

Hemp.

My absolute favorite material for making bodices. I adore the contrast with silk, the way the smooth, sheer, impalpable chiffons contrast with the rough grainy antiqueness of the vintage hemp.

I collect these one of a kind pieces at vintage markets across northern Italy, they are old, sometimes dating back to the mid 1800. They are handwoven, hand spun, the perfect shade of natural ivory. ⁠
⁠
After carefully soaking and washing these, we roll them up and store them for future use. They are precious, as no one makes these anymore and will one day be gone.⁠
⁠
They were made for the dowries of brides, to be cut as needed, finished by hand, and often embroidered with the couple's family monogram. Common uses were face towels, napkins, table cloths, bed sheets, beautiful lace-edged night gowns, underwear, aprons.⁠
⁠
They are the perfect weight and texture to make fitted and boned bodices, the plain weave and thick texture provides a supple, pliable material which is a dream to work with. ⁠
⁠
The ones that have a less beautiful hue of ivory we use as innermost layer, sandwiched between the silk lining and the outer fashion fabric (sometimes silk shantung or satin). So if you choose a design with a bodice, know that inside, is a piece of italian history. We got you covered with your #somethingold!⁠
