FAQs

Do I need to make an appointment?


Yes. Mel Rose Couture operates by appointments only. This ensures all clients are given personal an undivided attention through out their appointment. For those clients unable to meet in person for their initial consultation, Mel Rose Couture now offers bookings via Virtual appointment. To book you appointment visit our online booking portal or get in touch via our contact page




How much time should I set aside for the appointment?


We allocate a time slot of 1hour for each appointment. This ensures their is adequate time for any consultations and fittings. If your fitting appointment requires more than the 1 hour we will let you know before hand.




Can I bring my friends and family to my appointment?


While Mel Rose Couture understands that you may wish to share your couture experience with your family and friends, we are a small studio unable to accommodate large parties. We ask that you only invite a maximum of 2 people (other than yourself) to the appointment. This ensures the appointment is focused on you and your dream gown.




How long will it take to make my gown?


We recommend clients first contact us 12 months before their event to ensure they can be accomadated. The construction of your gown will start 6 months before your event (or travel date), with several fittings throughout, and your final fitting scheduled for around 1-2 weeks before your wedding.




I have a picture of a gown I really love. Can you copy it?


When searching for your dream gown we understand how easy it can be to fall in love with images of one or more gowns. However, making an exact copy of another designer's gown is not something we will do. We are happy for you to bring pictures along that show what styles and elements you are drawn to. Mel will then work with you on creating your Couture gown.




I love one of your collection gowns, but would want it in a different colour/fabric. Is that possible?


Mel Rose Couture loves to create amazing one of a kind pieces for it's clients. Recreating one of our collection gowns in a colour or fabric that reflects your personal style and that of your wedding is possible. If you would like to discuss your changes to one of our gowns please contact Mel today.
