The #1 rule for Design Appointments is that there are no set rules for Design Appointments! Our stylist team’s guiding goal for these calls is to add value for you in finding the perfect dress no matter where you are in the search.
If you are at the beginning of the dress search, our stylists can make recommendations on the best style for your body type and style, and show you how to use Anomalie’s website to continue discovering your perfect dress.
If you know exactly what you want, your stylist can add all of your important details to the design and finalize the price quote. Our goal before payment is for you to visualize what your dream dress will look like on you, and the Design Appointment is an important part of this.
Design Appointments are held via Zoom (your call whether you want video on or off) and friends/family are welcome to join. We schedule them for 30 minutes, but many appointments are shorter.
The best way to prepare for the Design Appointment? Use our online tools! Your stylist can give expert guidance if you are stuck between several different styles, answer any questions about using the tools, and work on the call to refine the design to your vision.
Below is an in-depth overview of these tools and how they work.
Your Design Shop: Browsing and Product Pages
Our browse functionality is to determine the base design of your wedding dress. Don’t worry about getting every detail perfectly accurate – you can edit the design later and your stylist has a checklist to confirm every detail before your dress goes into production (which includes big items like lace placement and subtle details like scalloped necklines or lace around the sleeve). The purpose of the browsing functionality is to determine the general vibe and key elements of your dream dress.
Click “See Details”on any sketch brings you to move information about that dress and shows Anomalie gowns we’ve produces with similar details.
Your Lookbook: Saving Your Inspiration
As you are browsing, tap the heart in the upper right corner to save that design in your lookbook. You can also upload inspiration photos from other sources if you have them – your stylist can use this inspiration to incorporate into your final sketch.
