Customer testimonials

"Working with Maki from La Sposa Berlinese has been amazing. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable. I trusted her completely with altering my wedding dress. She was flexible with my timeline and very communicative. From the start, my dress looked good, but she made it even better. I am so pleased with the results and cannot recommend her enough!" - Michelle R.

Custom gowns

I make complete custom wedding gowns, incorporating your own ideas and wishes!

Process and prices

  1. Free initial consultation, in-person in Berlin or online.

  2. Sketching some design ideas, which comprise between 6-8 designs.

  3. The second appointment to decide on the design and fabric, take body measurements (or by email). 

  4. Fabric sourcing, pattern cutting and dressmaking. The initial payment is about half the estimated final fee to cover material and labour.

  5. First fitting to check the fit and design which will be adjusted.

  6. Second fitting with the semi-finished dress to adjust the fit and hemline. 

  7. Final fitting to check the fitting. There is a possibility of needing further adjustment. The final fee is paid once the dress is completely finished.
