Meet the Maker

As some of you may have seen we had the honour to feature in last months edition of Tie the Knot Scotland, where we offered its readers a sneak peek into the world of wedding dress making at La Novia. This journey which starts from ideas, sketches and patterns and ends in the creation of made to measure dresses is what we are so passionate about.

At La Novia, we understand that choosing a bridal gown is not like your usual shopping day out- it is important to find something unique, that matches your personality and is well… perfect in every way possible! This is what we strive to achieve with our custom made collection.

During our bridal consultations we like to hear all the details- colours, venue, flowers- of the big day, so we can try and guide you in the direction of finding a wedding dress that will fit the bill, with this said, it is you lovely brides who are our biggest inspiration. Once the style of dress is chosen, we love to hear any additional ideas you may have – whether this is changing the neckline, adding sleeves, playing about with fabrics – the options are endless, we want you to be 100% happy before saying yes to the dress.

Often I come across brides who start off apprehensive about choosing certain styles – such as strapless dresses – in case they might not be supportive enough. However, by creating a dress tailored to all your specific measurements we can promise that it will fit like a glove. Attention to detail is key and we can guarantee this by not only giving brides the chance to meet the designer herself but through having our own in-house pattern-cutter, seamstress and embroider- we are with you every step of the way. Having a bespoke dress enables you, brides, to become part of the design process, guaranteeing an individual look.

We aim to make the process at La Novia as personal as possible, our bridalwear designer Liliana Dabic believes it is important to build a relationship with her customers, reassuring brides on any doubts or queries they may have concerning their future dress. We want the experience to be fun and something you look forward to coming to as much as we do! Generally, after two fittings in our Edinburgh boutique, and countless hours of work, your dress will be ready to take away..eeeek, we try and make the fittings as close to your wedding day as possible to make sure you will be looking perfect!

For us there is nothing more rewarding than seeing real brides wearing our dresses – it’s so satisfying knowing that we have been able to play a part towards what is one of the most important days in your life. To all our past brides, we have loved seeing all your gorgeous photos, future brides, we look forward to meeting you and bringing your dream dress to life!
