YOUR CUSTOM BRIDAL DRESS

On your second visit to the workshop, we will take your measurements and agree on design and fabrics of your wedding dress

DRESS FITTING AT THE ATELIER

Typically, three to four fittings are held until the dress fits you perfectly. If you live in another city or country, we can streamline fittings to make the process simpler and less expensive.

CUSTOM-MADE BRIDAL DRESSES

From this moment on, we get down to work: selecting the most suitable fabrics, we design a dress pattern, cut the different elements of your dress, and prepare the garment for an initial fitting.

FAQ

Do I have to make an appointment to try on your wedding dresses?

Yes. You need to book an appointment in advance to see our wedding dresses. Appointment can be booked here, free of charge and without commitment to purchase or by calling 93-302.15.98. You can also write us at info@larca.es.

Do you have a point of sale in Madrid? Or in other cities apart from Barcelona?

Our exclusive point of sale is our boutique-atelier located in the heart of the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona. Designer Nina Balmes is pleased to assist each bride personally.

 

How far in advance should I schedule a fitting?

To make your custom-made wedding dress without haste, we recommend starting six months in advance. Tailoring antique dresses that need only minor alterations can be done in less than three months.

 

Do you make custom wedding dresses?

Yes. We make tailor-made wedding dresses, which are entirely designed and crafted in our atelier in Barcelona. To define the design and model that best suits you, we have a wide selection of sample dresses you can try on without any commitment to purchase. If you prefer, we can create a unique design with antique materials, exclusively for you.

 

How many fittings are needed for a tailor-made wedding dress?

To make a custom wedding dress, three or four fittings are usually needed. For brides from outside Barcelona, we do our best to schedule fewer fittings to limit expense and enhance convenience.

 

Can I order a wedding dress even if I don’t live in Barcelona and likely can’t come visit??

Although we always recommend that you come to visit us at least once, if you cannot come to our atelier, you can send us your measurements by email and we will make your custom wedding dress and send it to you wherever you want. In this case, you may need someone who will make the final adjustments locally.
