Book A Consultation: CELESTINO understands that having a wedding can be quite stressful. Our goal is to make sure you not only enjoy the creation process of your dress, but that you also leave our atelier with the dress of your dreams. We are pleased to offer each bride of the hour a benevolent ear, expertise in design construction, and assurance in execution of a beautiful wedding gown. Initial consultations begin through zoom or a phone call. Once it is clear on the budget provided for a bridal gown 60% of the cost will be required to begin the process of development. Once payment is cleared the design and measurement process will begin.
Design / Measurements: Each of our wonderful dresses are created in our atelier in Hudson NY and hand crafted by both Sergio and Kade. With this set up we have the adaptability to create an exceptional experience. After our consultation we begin the stages of design by starting with 3 sketches of the ideal bridal gown requested. From there the bride is able to choose one design and request minor adjustments for the ideal bridal gown for the final sketch. If the bride wishes to have more sketches after the initial 3, an additional $150 dollar sketching fee will be required to receive more sketches. If the bride decides to change details or design direction after the final sketch is confirmed, additional cost will be required to accommodate changes. Once the final sketch is confirmed an in-person meeting or a personal zoom walk-through will be required to gather measurements to ensure fit.
Come In For A Fitting: When the wedding dress muslin has been created we will reach out to you in order to schedule either an in person fitting, or mail the muslin and have a virtual fitting. During this time we will ask you to bring your wedding shoes and proper bra and undergarments that will be worn on the day of the wedding. We will then make necessary adjustments to your look to ensure a perfect fit. From there the bride will receive 2-3 more fittings. The final fitting will be in the final wedding gown creation so that any alterations or minor tailoring can be made.
Bringing Your Wedding Dress Home: Once the final fitting is finished and all necessary adjustments are made, the bride is able to take her dress home from the CELESTINO atelier. Once the dress leaves the atelier all responsibilities for additional alterations or liabilities of the dress are relinquished from CELESTINO.
