For over 30 years we have been creating beautiful, made-to-measure bridal wear perfectly tailored to fit and to feel wonderful.
If you're the bride, we'd love to create an exquisite made-to-measure dress for you. We can work with you to design a dress that has everything you would like – lace, beading, smocking, embroidery – it can be as simple or as elaborate as suits your personal style.
For bridesmaids we can design a set of matching and coordinated dresses for adults and children. If a bridesmaid happens to be pregnant, that's no problem, we can accommodate that too and you will all look stunning on the big day.
If you're the mother of the bride or mother of the groom we understand very well that you will want to look your very best at the wedding or your son or daughter. We can create a bespoke outfit, which will be flattering, comfortable and look superb.
We can design and create outfits for anybody else involved in the wedding, which includes making up waistcoats, ties and cravats for the groom, best man, ushers, page boys and any other members of the wedding party.
We love creating beautiful garments for special occasions so whatever your role at the marriage celebrations, we can create a dress or an outfit for you that is as wonderful as the wedding day itself. We can start with a blank sheet of paper and work with you on a design or, if you've already seen a dress that you like, you can bring in photos or clippings from magazines and we can start from there. In every case we will be able to make a stylish and beautiful dress that fits you perfectly, whatever your size or shape. We've been making dresses for over 30 years here at Japlene so we know how to get the fit just right.
All our designs are exclusive to Japlene and we can create dresses and outfits that are suitable for every venue from your local church to an exotic, faraway, sun-drenched beach.
Please do explore the other pages on the site to find out more details about our creations and the process we go through from initial fittings to the finished garment. We have samples and can advise on the fabrics to be used. We also have a small range of accessories (hats etc.) in stock.
