CUSTOM WEDDING DRESS DESIGN: THE PROCESS AT REBECCA SCHONEVELD STUDIO
FEB 15th, 2021
During the pandemic, we had to make some tough decisions. One of them being a new change of space and design of the business. We're still devoted to making gorgeous gowns for our brides, but there have been a few changes that ultimately is all about bringing you a better experience when it comes to finding (or creating!) your dream dress with us.


Welcome to the new Rebecca Schoneveld Studio!

The new studio resides in beautiful Irvington, NY - not too far outside the city and holds amazing views of the Hudson River.

At our new studio, we have put in place specific safe working hours for our seamsters and can book private 1:1 appointments with brides who can work directly with Rebecca herself. If you have ANY questions about what you want, want changed or customized, this is THE perfect way to make your bridal gown dreams come true!

So how does it work? What's the process like and what can you expect when booking an appointment with Rebecca Schoneveld?
Where are we located?

Located directly on the Hudson River in cute historic Irvington, NY - a quick drive north of Manhattan.

3 West Main St. #102A, Irvington, New York

Appointments are available on days when the production team is out to allow for increased social distancing. Brides get a whole two hour window to browse all of Rebecca's collections!

You can book a consult call or an appointment by booking through this link here or by emailing us at design@rebeccaschoneveld.com.

Your Consult Call:

We will discuss all of your hopes and dreams via this call to get a better understanding of what you're looking for. This call can also include discussing Rebecca designing a custom gown for you. *Please note: Custom Design orders start at $2500

***

Your Appointment:

When you arrive (masks required and no more than two guests to bring with you), we'll sit down and have a chat about what designs you like, your concerns, hopes, etc, and then you'll have the chance to try on as many gowns as you like.

Rebecca will guide you and pull designs you might not have thought of, and can explain in great detail all of the design possibilities!

Let's talk customizations:

We are quite known for our customizations and having flexibility in our designs. Each collection has bodysuits, overskirt options, and can be made with sleeves or none.

Changing necklines, sleeves, swapping bodices and skirts of different gowns - these are really just some of the ways we can easily customize a unique gown for you. Very often, these changes don't add much cost! Customized gowns already from one of Rebecca's collections generally range between $2000-$3200.

Want a fully custom gown?

If you have a very specific idea of a custom gown you would like to have made, my collection acts as a wonderful foundation from which to develop a brand new design.

We have dozens of shapes for bodices and skirts on hand, and more fabric options than you can imagine!

Using the existing samples we have, you will try on similar silhouettes and fabrics, and we will thoroughly discuss every detail for your one of a kind piece!

From there, Rebecca will provide you a sketch and a quote for the gown. You can opt to have a muslin made of your gown or we can go straight into creating the gown. (In most cases, a muslin is not necessary!)

Fully custom gowns can be completed in approximately 4 months and pricing starts at $2500

    At the Rebecca Schoneveld Studio, you can shop the entire archive of designs, discover custom options and enjoy the unique experience of working directly with a designer to create your perfect gown! We can't wait to meet you and make your wedding dress dreams a reality!

    See you soon!
