Stephen Goudeau empowers our clients by bringing their vision to life with our Atelier Bridal Gowns. We encourage our clients to think beyond their imagination without any limitations to create the perfect wedding gown, formal gown, or evening wear for any event.
Our gowns start at $ 7,500K and up depending on the complexity of the gown. To ensure that your gown is a perfect fit, the process takes 4-6 months to complete.
Client ConsultationThis is a 1-hour virtual meeting to work directly with our designer, Stephen Goudeau and one of our wedding consultants to discuss your design inspiration. There is a $500 non-refundable consultation fee that will apply if a 25% deposit is made within 15 days.
This is the most important step in our process to ensure that our gowns are a perfect fit, and our clients are satisfied with the direction of the design. All of our gowns require a minimum of 3 fittings at our Dallas Showroom and may require additional fittings depending on the complexity of the design.
- Muslin Fitting - A muslin is a mock-up of the final garment that is made with plain fabric before production starts. The garment gives our designer and client the opportunity to ensure that measurements are accurate, and the client is satisfied with the overall structure of the gown.
- Second Fitting - Once the base of the gown is complete, we will determine if any additional alterations are needed, and the designer will determine the placing for additional details outlined in the original sketch (example: beading placement).
- Third/Final Fitting - Once changes are made, the final fitting ensures that the dress is the right fit before taking your dream gown home.
