We recommend about 6 to 8 months before the wedding.

Sure, the more the merrier! But please note we only have seating for up to 5 people in the studio.
How long does it take to make a dress?
It takes roughly 12 weeks once your dress has been ordered from our supplier overseas.
How long in advance should I come if I am going to hire my dress?
When ever suits you best, however you may book to hire your wedding dress 6 months (no earlier) before your wedding.
Do you make to hire?
Yes, we do… but this depends on the dress. Please enquire further.
Do you make / hire Bridesmaids dresses?
YES! We sell JACOBA bridesmaids dresses – a soft, flowy dress either to the knee or floor length… The best part of the Jacoba dress is that each bridesmaid can have a different neckline. I.e: halterneck, boobtube, cap sleeve, one shoulder etc!
Do you make / hire suits?
How does payment work?
If you are having a dress custom made overseas a 50% deposit is required upfront and the balance when the dress arrives.
If the dress is bought off the rail 100% payment is required (although a payment plan can be made if necessary)
When hiring a dress a refundable deposit of R1500 is required when the dress is booked, and then the balance is due 30 days prior to the wedding.
