PThe moments leading up to your big ‘I do’ are the most memorable times of your life, and the preparations for your wedding day should be as elegant as you are.
This includes the day itself; the time when you experience the luxury of getting ready with your best friends and family. From the moment you wake up to the first steps down the aisle, you want every second to be infused with opulence, right down to the last finishing touch.
You have poured thought and devotion into your wedding dress itself; why not extend this to your designer robes as well? At Suzanne Harward, our custom design service works within your design sensibilities to produce extraordinary garments that elevate your day.
Delight your bridesmaids and say a genuine thank you for their love and support by gifting them designer robes on your wedding day. Hand crafted from the finest lace and silk, each gown combines flawless stitching techniques, superb cuts and extraordinary design to create your dream unique wedding attire. Not to mention, the ultimate comfort each garment provides as you go through the preparations with your bridal party.
With more than 40 years of industry experience, Suzanne leads a team of talented creative designers. Drawing on classical design techniques and contemporary aesthetics, Suzanne and her team create one-of-a-kind garments that you’ll truly treasure forever.
Our consultants work directly with you to ensure that every element of your day works in cohesion with each other; from the robes to the all-important wedding dress. We relate to your unique personality and sensibilities to create something that’s truly unique.
At Suzanne Harward, our international connections within the design industry mean we are able to source exclusive fabrics from around the world; as well as creating gowns from ready-made materials, we are able to commission custom fabrics to be made just for you and your bridesmaids.
Please note that for commissioned wedding dress and designer robes design, we require at least a 12-month lead time. This is to ensure sufficient time to attend to every detail of the garment, and to ascertain that you’re only receiving the best when it comes to your wedding attire.

Your couture gown will be delivered wrapped in acid free tissue paper. Gowns with embellishment will have a protective organza cover placed over the embellished area of the gown.

Each Suzanne Harward gown is individually handcrafted with great care and uses delicate fabric, embroideries, embellishment and lace to convey the same timeless, feminine and ethereal nature that is the Suzanne Harward handwriting. This may lead to variation in finish, colour and fabrication. Please take the utmost care when cleaning and wearing your gown as jewellery, finger nails and harsh detergents can harm delicate fabrics and finishes. Embellishments and fabrics may change in colour with time and wear adding to the charm and individuality of each piece. These are not faults in the production of the garment and are consistent with handmade couture quality. Your gown will arrive protected in acid free tissue paper and an organza cover covering any embellishment. A protective garment bag is provided to ensure the gown remains in impeccable condition. Please hang your gown in the garment bag when you receive your delivery.
If you wish to clean your gown after your special day we recommend you take your gown to a reputable specialist drycleaners experienced in cleaning of delicate couture pieces.
