Not happy with your wedding dress choices? Consider having it custom-made

By on September 25, 2015

How many times have you wished that a wedding dress had that one extra feature that would make it your dream dress? How many times have you thought that you will never find the wedding dress that is exactly what you envisioned? How many times have you wished your wedding dress had half the features in one, and half of another, to be the dress that you always wanted?

Many brides share this tale of woe. As pretty and attractive as designer wedding dresses can be, they need not always have all the features a bride wants. Whether it is because of budget constraints, unavailable sizes or lack of attractive choices, many brides end up settling for what is the best of the lot.

If you are a bride who dreads going through thousands of wedding dress pictures or aren’t excited about the prospect of trying on dozens till you find the right one, having your dress custom-made may be the way to go. Did we just hear you say “Impossible?”

Having a wedding dress custom-made isn’t as difficult as it seems. All it takes is finding the right people for the job. Let me tell you how you can make this possible.

Decide on what features you want

The first step to having your dress custom-made is deciding its features. What is it that you’ve been searching for and have been unable to find in the available dresses? Create a list of factors that you are particular about, and what other features would be good-to-have. If you have seen them in other wedding dresses, get their pictures to show to your dressmaker.

Find the dressmaker for the job

A custom-made wedding dress is worth the effort, only if you work with a master dressmaker. For this, look no further than at Best for Bride. Our in-house designers are specialists who can help you realize your vision of the perfect wedding dress and execute a masterpiece that you will be dying to try on. If you aren’t entirely sure of what you want, our designers can help you by suggesting what looks good on you and can fill in the empty spaces in the list we asked you to prepare earlier, with the right choices.

Run through the designs, see the sketches and plan your budget

Don’t assume that a limited budget is a constraint to having the perfect dress. A talented dressmaker can convert even the most inexpensive fabric into a masterpiece of finesse and elegance. Discuss your budget upfront and find your dream dress come to life with what fits within that amount. A wedding dress expert can advise you of the latest trends and alternate options that will work in your favor. Be prepared to spend some time on discussions, reviewing sketches and looking at fabric swatches till you find the perfect mix for your bridal attire.

Once this is all done, it is only a matter of days before your gown is ready and you are ready to be married in it. So, what do you say? Would you like to have your own exquisite custom-made wedding gown? If so, visit us at Best for Bride today and find out all that you want to know.

    I thought about this because I was unable to find one that I really liked. The cost is out of hand, but at least I could get what I see in my head.

    I know a person that does custom dresses so I think that is the way that I am going to go. They are a friend of the family and wanted to build a dress for me, so we’ll see what they can do.

    Yes. Just like getting a custom wedding band, having a dress made to fit you exactly is the best way to go.
