Why Consider Opting For A Custom-Made Wedding Dress

There are plenty of wedding dress options and styles available, but if you aren’t quite sure if ready-made dresses are for you, here are some reasons that will help you decide if a custom wedding dress is a better option.

If you are already planning on designing your wedding dress, you will find the following factors useful as well.


The advantages of designing your wedding dress are apparent; you will have the ability to create a one of a kind dress.  A custom gown is tailored to your style and body, it is probably something you have envisioned time after time, so why not have that vision come to life. Knowing that your gown was not mass made and created just for you is a special feeling.

The Perfect Fit

You will get your measurements taken, along with the design details to be completed within your timeframe. After measurements are in place, a mock-up muslin dress is usually employed to help with visualising and making any adjustments prior to creating your custom dress.

Time Is On Your Side

The design process depends on the type of materials, detailing, and the complexity of each dress. Creating a wedding gown is relative; delicate fabrics, embroidery, draping, lace, and intricate beading all takes time. Additionally, you should allow plenty of time for fittings and alterations. You will have regular fittings along the way, which will enable you to watch the evolution of the design process.

You Have A Vision

Designing a custom-made wedding dress is a collaborative process, so expect to discuss sketches, fabrics, and designs. The first appointment is crucial to ensuring your vision will be executed. Your designer will take the time to get to know your personality, style, and vision. Be prepared with some pictures of design styles, and most importantly have a clear idea for what kind of dress you want. Remember to keep a budget in mind and also consider if you are willing to go over the budget.

Experiences Matter To You

Your wedding is one of the most special moments of your life. The experience of designing a wedding gown is a once in a lifetime event which will be as memorable as the wedding itself. All appointments and fittings in between will be worthwhile once your big day and gown finally arrives.

The Process

The design process is all about achieving your desired style. This will involve discussing silhouettes, necklines, and fabrics. Custom making your dress means you have complete creative control over your dream gown, from sketches until completion. Having inspirational images of your ideas will make the process easier and ensure you get your ideal wedding design.
