The Experience

Brief overview of the client order process

Initial Consultation

After making an appointment, the initial one to one consultation takes place in Charmi’s boutique. During this first meeting, we go through the whole collection and suggest various options available to the bride and groom. At this stage, clients get an opportunity to try on various outfits and see the styles that complement them the most.

At this stage, clients also go through Charmi’s extensive colour, fabric and embroidery samples, which they are able to mix and match to create their dream outfits.

Design Session

The next stage soon follows with a second appointment, ‘The Design Process’. Clients have a meeting with Charmi where they are encouraged, to bring any ideas, including magazine cuttings, specific colours, a particular style or a theme. Charmi will suggest different options on fabrics and embroidery to mix and match to create their dream outfits. She will then sketch the ideas and style on paper and write detailed information on the design sheet which is mutualy agreed.

Embroidery Sample

Once the client is happy and places an order; an embroidery sample is produced and shown to the client for approval. The purpose of the sample is to enable the bride to picture what the wedding outfit will look like. Usually choices of two embroidery samples are given to the client. At this stage it is still possible to make changes to colour, fabric and embroidery. The embroidery sample is for the bride to keep, allowing her to coordinate other aspects of her special day.

Work in Progress

Once all the details are finalised, the order is put into production. The clients, upon request, then get a copy of the sketch and can also request work in progress images of their dream wedding outfit. Once all the hand embroidery is done, the outfit goes into stitching where the dress is finished with a lot of care and attention to detail. Upon completion, the clients then get a full image of their outfit before they come for their fitting.

Fitting & Collection

Once the outfit is ready, clients return for a final fitting. If there are any minor alterations, these are carried out within a few days. Once the bride is completely happy, the outfit is steam ironed and carefully packed, ready to wear on the big day.

    Charmi helped my husband, Riead, sort out his chosen wedding day outfit with great professionalism & speed! We decided to go for it & get married in lockdown in November at 6 weeks notice & having met each other only in June! Charmi made a swift appointment for Riead & had him measured up, outfit altered & matching footwear made & sent to the UK within weeks! A truly fabulous service. Thank you for the perfect outfit for our day! Komal & Riead! X

    Charmi designed my wedding outfit and did an excellent job! From the start she was very good to work with and it was worth every penny for what is a very special day in your life. The outfit, in terms of material, embroidery and cut, came out superb. Highly recommend!

    Me and my husband visited Charmi a year ago to have our outfits designed by her. We were amazed with her studio and professionalism. Charmi created bespoke made to measure outfits for us that we loved. Top quality material and everything just as we had dreamt. Thanks Charmi

    The whole experience is one where you are treated like a valued member of the family and all that matters to CHARMI is how she ADDS value to you and all your expectations and you feel all your problems end when you reach out to her and she will do everything in her power to deliver what she promises, like your problems END and hers begin
    Love you CHARMI
