About Sylwia

Wedding Dress to Be was founded by Sylwia Handrysik. 

    "I came to England 17 years ago to experience a new life. I come from a family where dressmaking and tailoring is a tradition passed on to future generations. I'm proud of my heritage and the incredible skills that I learned early in my life. 

    I developed my passion for fashion and design at a very early stage along with my sisters. Tailoring was as part of family on a daily basis, and through those discussions at the table, I absorbed the beauty of creating beautiful clothing from my parents. 

   I have been designing custom-made clothes for as long as I can remember, and whilst in Poland I had my own company designing and making my own collection of wedding gowns. 

    I love fabrics, structure and sophisticated details, which is why after so many years I am still passionate about this profession"

   Wedding Dress to Be provides high quality wedding gown alterations, remodelling, restyling, made to measure and general modifications. We take the time to listen to your wishes and offer the best advice we can.

   Every bride and groom wants to look their best on their wedding day. Almost every wedding dress will need an alteration for a perfect fit, no matter where your gown was purchased, whether it is new, or has been previously enjoyed, if necessary I will customise them to meet your exact requirements.  

   "I take pride in my work, and give each bride a personal touch. The quality of my work is a result of my attention to detail and the high standards that I set myself to work to produce the finish expected for such a beautiful occasion"


    Wedding Dress to Be have provided hundreds of wedding dress alterations for local brides in Bournemouth as well as looking after customers of Sarah Jane Bridal (formerly Sassy Brides) in Poole,   Fab Frocks of Westbourne, Cherished Bridal Wear in Christchurch, The Forest and Dorset Brides in Highcliffe and Wed2B.
