Akay Istanbul is a family company with a professional team whose mission is to make the dreams of the brides come true by synthesizing 30 years of experience with the trends of today.
Akay does not mass-produce. It presents two main collections each year at all of its boutiques. If the bride’s selection is one of the models of the collection, it provides custom tailored products. Services are limited to this. However, custom designs out of the current collection are also available.
Wedding dress selection is one of the most important parts of wedding preparations. It should not be squeezed into the hectic periods close to the date of ceremony. We recommend you order the wedding dress three to four months in advance by taking into account the tailoring period and fittings.
Akay Istanbul prefers working with an appointment system but also has professional bridal consultants and equipment that can serve brides who drop in without an appointment. During your visit, the most suitable dresses will be presented according to your preferences, your body shape and the wedding venue. You will also be presented with veils and hair accessories suitable for the dress.
Akay Istanbul boutiques do not provide rental dress services. We believe that Akay brides should wear custom-made wedding dresses.
Since we are a design-centered company, we do not find it appropriate to sew other designers’ dresses.
The collar of your wedding dress should be determined according to your physical features, such as waist, chest, cleavage, neck size, face type, shoulder width, and bone structure of the decolté. The skirt shape should be selected based on the height difference between you and your spouse.
When the physical attributes of the models wearing the dress in the catalogs are not the same as you, the results may not meet your expectations. That is why we believe it is better to try on the dress you like yourself. But, you can get ideas about fabrics and ornaments from the catalogs.
You can find shoes, hair accessories, veils, gloves, hand bouquets, under garments and evening dress alternatives at Akay Istanbul boutiques.
Generally, we complete the order process with 3 fittings (measurement, second fitting and delivery). We can add one more fittings for exceptional cases.
You should bring the under garments and shoes you will intend to wear during the ceremony. If you haven’t selected them yet, you can find them at Akay Istanbul boutiques.
We can make the changes that are applicable to the model depending on its features. The necessary directions on this subject can be given by our professional team.
Usually, one-third of the amount is taken as a first payment and the rest should be paid in 2 weeks at the latest.
The deposit is not returned.
The wedding dresses that are ordered and paid in full and completed are kept in the Akay Istanbul boutiques for one year. If the wedding dress is not collected within a year, Akay Istanbul does not bear any more responsibility.
We give great importance to the quality of the fabric, materials and workmanship. We present various different alternatives suitable for any budget at Akay Istanbul boutiques.
