Discover our ready-to-wear collection

The ready-to-wear collection of Atelier ExC consists of bridal wear, party dresses, casual ready-to-wear and accessories. Our line of tailor-made haute couture focuses on dresses and clothing that fit your natural shape and emphasise your inner beauty.

On our website, you cannot see the entire collection. Because most dresses are unique creations, we try to keep them exclusive. To browse through all our ready-to-wear pieces, you must visit the store. We have over 300 styles of dresses, with a huge range of colours and sizes available.

Bridal gowns that will make you say yes to the dress

At Atelier ExC, you can have your wedding or (after)party dress custom made by showing us inspirational pictures you have seen on social media, Pinterest or in magazines. Based on your favourite examples, we add our own unique touch and your personal style as finishing touches. Our creations are entirely made by hand, using the finest fabrics and manual beadwork.

P.S. Atelier ExC is an official partner of the House of Weddings quality label, which gathers the best and most trustworthy wedding suppliers in Belgium. Brides who do not have time to work with us on an individual design can choose a bridal gown from our ready-to-wear Pronovias collection.

We recommend ordering a dress no later than four to six months before your wedding day. After ordering, dresses can take up to two to five months to arrive. We usually recommend starting your alterations four to six weeks prior to your wedding.

At ExC Fashion House, we believe that everyone – regardless of their budget – should be able to afford their dream gown. That is why we have dedicated ourselves to providing beautiful dresses and gowns at reasonable prices in the Ghent area. For those in the early stages of wedding planning: we encourage you to have a look at our bridal collection and browse the Atelier ExC Google review page to get a better sense of what we can do for you!

To try on dresses, we always provide a one-on-one consultation with a bridal expert. We also provide your own dressing room suite where you will get our undivided attention. Therefore, you will need to book an appointment in advance.

Yes! We believe finding the perfect dress is a personal experience, which is why every appointment you have with us will be in one of our lovely private bridal suites. We have three large fitting areas at our two top floors in order to guarantee privacy as well as the assistance of a dedicated stylist.

Your wedding gown might just be the most important dress you will ever buy. We want to make sure that you receive all the attention you deserve and require to speed up the process of finding your dream gown.

If you need to cancel or reschedule, please let us know as soon as possible so that we can make the appointment available to other brides. A Saturday appointment requires a 48 hours cancellation or rescheduling notice for a refund.

In order to prepare yourself, feel free to have a look through the selection of bridal dresses on our website and social media and take note of any features or particular styles that appeal to you. It might also pay off to browse and collect images on sites like Pinterest, or to gather pictures from magazines. We recommend bringing nude underwear and a strapless bra to your appointment, but don’t worry if you do not have either of these. They are by no means essential.

We have a range of shoes you can try on with the dresses, but feel free to bring your own if you wish. Makeup on your face is fine, but please do not wear any makeup from your neck area down. That includes no fake tan, no lotions and no bronzing products on your body. We understand you want to feel amazing while trying on our dresses, but we want to be able to keep them looking as neat as possible for everyone.

Whilst it may seem like a wonderful idea to bring all your friends and family with you to your appointment, we have learned from experience that it can be quite stressful and confusing for the bride. With that in mind, we strongly recommend that you bring a very selected number of guests to your appointment. That will allow you to relax and enjoy the appointment without too many conflicting ideas and opinions. You are supposed to be the centre of attention; we want to help you find the perfect dress.

Unfortunately, we cannot allow you to take pictures during your appointment for a number of reasons. Most of our designers do not allow pictures. Another reason is that the dresses probably are not the right fit yet. An image of a dress that is not yet altered to your body shape is not particularly flattering.

The main focus of the appointment can easily shift from how you feel in a dress to whether it looks good on social media, which we want to prevent. You might be looking at yourself more on your friends’ phone screen rather than thinking about how you actually look and feel in the dresses you try on.

Lastly and most importantly, we want to protect the brides that have already bought a dress from us. Seeing a badly taken picture on social media of your otherwise gorgeous dress – simply because it is ill-fitting on someone else – could be upsetting for any bride. Therefore, please respect that we ask all phones to be put away in bags or coats while in the dressing room suite.
