Ever considered having your wedding dress designed and made by a bridal designer/seamstress? Is it something you’ve thought of but are a bit sceptical about having your dream wedding dress custom-made.
So many brides have a good idea of what they want for their big day and what their wedding dress would look like (we spend almost half our life dreaming about it, right). Most of the time you have that exact picture in your head, but it does not always go as planned, and the dress you’ve always had in mind does nothing for your personality or body, and you end up disappointed when you can’t find quite what you’re looking for.
So consider this for a minute, creating your dream dress from various styles you like or even something completely out there with your bridal dress designer.
Creating a bespoke (custom made) dress with a designer/dressmaker is such a fun, intimate and personal process. It can be scary at first especially if you’ve never had anything custom-made and don’t know much about the designer you’d probably wonder how long will it take, how much will it cost, and will it even meet your expectations. But let me tell you, any designer worth their weight will be apparent, honest and able to guide you through the process step by step as it’s not only for your dress to be perfect but also for the designer’s credibility.
So if you are considering going bespoke or you have not even given it any thought here are five reasons as to why bespoke is best!
You are unique, and there is no one in the world, just like you! Your unique taste, personality, body shape and vision for your wedding day and wedding dress makes it distinctively yours! You can be sure that your dress will be created to suit your needs and will be exquisitely unique to you.
The whole custom design process is all about your style and taste. From inspirational images to the accessible Pinterest pages, your designer pulls from your ideas, desires, wants and needs. Without your input, your designer will struggle to design and create the dress you dream of. That means you are part of the designing process each step of the way.
You and your designer will discuss sleeves, silhouettes, necklines, fabrics, and so much more. By working with your designer, they can guide the creative process from inspiration images to sketches to manufacturing the dress, fittings and finally the finished products!
Comfort and Fit
A good designer will celebrate your unique curves and will customize your dress to fit your body. The difference in purchasing a dress at a boutique and having one custom-made is that the dress is made to fit your unique frame instead of you having to fit in the dress. Your dress can be built for comfort, style and a perfect fit!
Your wedding dress is one of the most important things about your wedding day! I mean how do you expect to get married without your one of a kind wedding dress. You’ve long envisioned your wedding day to be unforgettable so shouldn’t your dress be too!!? Nothing compares to the experience of designing your wedding gown, knowing that you had a say in designing your dress is one of a kind feeling!!
Support Local Business
By working with a local designer, you are also supporting a small business, and you are apart of growing someone’s business and brand. This is always very much appreciated by local designers as they work hard to make sure that their work is more than excellent! Through your custom-made gown experience, you have the peace of mind of knowing exactly where your gown was made and by whom, that’s also what gives your dress a personal touch. And knowing that your wedding dress was not made for the masses, meaning anyone can order that dress in the store but that your dress was specially made just for you is quite a special feeling. Just like you’ve been uniquely made by God, so your dress is unique and created for your specific needs! Your wedding dress is unique, just like you!
