The KYNAH Bridal Process
Step 1: Virtual Consult Call This is a 30 minute call so that KYNAH can get an understanding of your events and where we can help as well as explain our process. We ask that you provide us with any inspiration you may have before so that we can help pick from some styles that also may not be on our website (YES! We have bridal options that aren’t on the website!). If you choose a Zoom call you can request to view some of our items that we may have available to show.
Step 2: Narrowing Down Options After the consult call, our stylist will send you over a file with options that we think would be great options for you within your budget.
Step 3: Customizations, Measurements, Finalization & Payment We then work together to finalize any customizations and colors. Based on this, we give you a guide on how to provide the appropriate measurements. Once we receive your measurements, we then provide a final summary outlining all of the details of your outfit and an invoice to make the payment. Please note that no changes can be made to your outfit once your design has been finalized and we do not put the outfit into production until all details - color, cut, and measurements - are provided.
Optional Swatches: If desired, we can also provide you with swatches. However, please note this is an additional cost and we require 4-5 weeks so your delivery time for the final product will increase accordingly.
Step 4: Production We will be quiet during this phase but rest assured that we are working hard on your vision! Most bridal outfits take 2-3 months and you will receive some updates once it is ready.
Step 5: Alterations While your outfit is in production we recommend doing some research on a tailor prior. Although we will be making our outfit to your current measurements, you should anticipate needing minor alterations to get the perfect fit. This is a standard part of the bridal outfit process across the industry that most women aren’t aware of when they are purchasing their product. Please note KYNAH does not pay for alterations so when figuring out your budget it is best to keep this in mind.
How far in advance should I begin wedding shopping?
In order to ensure you leave enough time for decision making and accessorizing, we recommend that you begin dress shopping 9-12 months in advance of your wedding date, purchasing 8-10 months in advance of your wedding date. If you are in a less than 2 month time crunch, we recommend checking out our "Ready to Ship" section.
Can you show me other KYNAH brides?
We feature some of our KYNAH brides on our Bridal Blog here.
How long do your bridal pieces take?
Most bridal pieces take at least 2-3 months to produce. We recommend having them in your hands at least 2 months before your wedding to allow you ample time to accessorize.
Where are you located? Can I come in to try on the outfit?
Our offices are in Los Angeles. We do not have a storefront at this time but we serve our brides via phone, zoom, and email. Schedule a consult here.
Do you customize?
Yes! We are able to customize the color, cut, and measurements of most of our bridal range. We do not do fully custom styles.
Who designs the outfits?
KYNAH is a collective of 10 different designers around India. Which means we have access to all 10 designers full range for bridal pieces.
Can you make a replica of another designer?
We do not create replicas of other designers.
How does KYNAH ensure my outfit will fit?
We make all bridal outfits to your measurements provided to avoid major alterations. That being said, you should still anticipate needing alterations to get the perfect fit. This is standard in the wedding outfit process.
