The wedding dress of your dreams, meticulously handcrafted in the heart of the Swiss Alps
During a private, relaxed and informative consultation at one of our satellite premises, we will explore all the options and possibilities for the wedding dress of your dreams. Together we will discuss and define fabrics, colours, styles, techniques as well as deadlines and budget. We will create a detailed illustration of the final design. You will also have the opportunity to see some of our wedding dress collections, as well as try on some styles.
Detailed design and quotation
After your consultation we will consult with our various fabric and trims partners to ensure you the best possible prices. We will then make you an offer based on your design proposal.
We start by taking your measurements (This is often already performed during your first consultation). We then take care of all aspects of making your dress, from pattern making to assembly and finishing touches. All our dresses are made-to-measure in Switzerland.
We'll meet with you for two or three intermediate fittings and one final fitting to make sure your dress fits like a glove. The first fitting usually consists of a “title” or “mock-up” fitting, to ensure the custom created pattern pieces are perfect, and confirm your approval of the style, before we cut the final fabrics.
After the final fitting and quality control, you can take your dress home with you. Depending on location, you might also have the option to have your dress delivered to you, ready for your big day.
FROM THE HUDSON TO THE HAMPTONS
Hendrik Vermeulen's Bridal Couture collection entitled “From the Hudson to the Hamptons” describes the journey of a New York bride who has the choice of jumping on a private yacht on Pier 79 dressed in a Silk and Chantilly lace cat suit and to get married off shore in an intimate “tête à tête” ceremony or to organise a lavish ceremony in Central Park followed by a memorable reception at the mythical “Cipriani”.
From the simplistic design of “Kepp’s Bay”, “5th Avenue” or “East Hampton”, most appropriate for and unconventional bride and a fast paced celebration, to the more elaborate “Sagaponack” or “Central Park Carousel” with their hand painted or hand dyed Silk petticoats and exclusive Chantilly Lace; each modern bride will fall in love with the originality of the Silver Lurex, Charcoal and Hematite accents found throughout the Bridal Couture Collection.
LA VIE EN ROSES
Starting a new life in a rose bud, layers of crisp Italian Silk Dupione wrapping around you like flower petals, luxurious double sided silk satin draping over you like a flouncing stream, the finest Chantilly Lace hugging you close, with Swarovski Crystals simmering like morning dew drops. You look over your shoulder to the hand painted and hand embroidered details as you walk down the breathtaking Jardin des Plantes in Paris, humming Edith Piaff's most famous song.
La Vie en Roses, Hendrik Vermeulen’s most romantic collection to date saw the birth of the Charme de Paris, the most sought after wedding dress on the internet. A collection where luxury and simplicity meets harmoniously.
As they say, the proof is in the pudding! As bridal remains one of the biggest custom crafted markets in the couture world, we decided to give you a glimpse of the luxury that is a custom designed and made wedding dress. Here is a small selection of some of our glowing brides over the past 10 glorious years of Hendrik Vermeulen Couture
