When we met Sinclair from Maids To Measure at the Designer Wedding Show last weekend and heard about her and India’s unique and innovative company, Maids To Measure, we jumped at the chance of running a feature on Festival Brides! Why? Because it’s very rare to stumble across a business within the wedding industry that: a) does something you’ve not come across before and b) gets you all excited about your own wedding! Both Kelly and I are sold and we hope you are too!
Maids to Measure, the brain child of London based sisters India and Sinclair Sellars, invites future brides and their maids to a consultation, where over a glass of bubbly (oh don’t mind if I do!) and a cupcake or two (just lovely!), they can collectively design their own dresses! How cool is that!?
With the guidance of Sinclair and India, ideas are discussed on shape, style, colours, material and design until everyone is happy. Measurements are then taken and their very own bespoke Maids to Measure bridesmaids dresses are designed!
Gone are the days of worrying what style will suit everyone best as these dresses are made to fit like a glove!
The best part is that all of this won’t break the bank! Each dress will cost you £195 and this includes the consultation, design and the final dress.
I think this is such a lovely way of choosing your bridesmaids dresses with your closest friends. It’s fun and is the perfect way of bringing your bridal party closer together.
So how did it all start!?
Before Maids To Measure, India used to work for Vera Wang where she noticed that while brides are very well catered for, there was a huge gap in the market for those seeking fashionable, unique and affordable bridesmaid dresses. At the same time, her sister Sinclair had been asked to be a bridesmaid several times and had trouble finding dresses that were affordable and between high street and designer prices.
Being lovers of fashion and all things fun, they decided to combine their eye for beautiful, feminine dress-design with their flair for business and Maids to Measure was born – a boutique service, where choosing bridesmaid dresses is an enjoyable experience rather than a stressful chore!
