Commissions and services


We offer a commissions design service at Lara B, through our Lara B Couture label. Some brides know exactly what they want and it’s not your normal traditional style you see in most shops. Therefore, a commissioned dress is what you need. A dress designed with you, by you, for you, by us!

It’s hard to say what a commissioned dress may cost but you can expect to pay a little more than your average dress. As a guide you will probably exceed £2,000.

If this is something you think suits you then please call for a FREE*consultation (*Saturdays are a £20 refundable deposit). Bring your idea’s, pictures and wish list of designs you feel you want. We can try styles on to see what suits you and start to design YOUR individual and bespoke one off.

Be part of making your dress!

The Lara B Couture collection is such a bespoke and personal way to have the perfect dress. Choosing the combination of key features that work for you, is truly special and unique.

Keeping this element in mind, we now offer an extra special package to make the dress experience even better, with memories to last a life time.

You will spend 4 hrs with Lara in store (weekday opening hours only), pattern cutting your bodice to your measurements. This will be approximately 12-16 weeks before your wedding date. Getting an in site into how we work and watching your dress be made from scratch. We will make the toile shell of the bodice with you, fit you at least once and then make changes to the pattern again. You will be hands on where you can be! Learn how to make and cut a dress even,lol. You can take pictures and build a lovely memory of your dress experience with us and forever. You can share the experience with one other guest (no children please) and we will provide a light lunch for you both and drinks.

The package is a one of payment at time of placing the dress order. The cost of the day is £300.

Obviously, this will help rule out a lot of alteration costs due to us doing a made to measure toile, however body’s do change nearer the final fittings and this will incur the normal extra alteration costs.
