In this article, we’ll discuss some of the reasons why brides to be might wish to consider using bespoke wedding dress designers.
Wedding dress designers – expressing you
It might be unusual to find a bride who wants to look exactly the same as another! [Unless they are emulating their favourite celebrity perhaps.] Of course, many brides are influenced by other dresses and may wish to reflect those influences in their own design; however, using a bespoke designer ensures that the dress that you wear on the final day will be an expression of you and not of somebody else.
A direct link from you to the creative
If you have ever looked at a bridal dress “off the peg” you may have experienced that feeling that it is almost right but not quite, because either something is lacking or something is included that doesn’t really fit your own particular requirements.
In the case of using your own designer, such things will be picked up in the earlier stages of the process and reflected in the following detailed fitting and adjustment sessions before your dress is completed. That way you will never look at the dress you plan to wear on your big day and think that it is almost what you want – but not quite.
Assessing your personality
It is not unusual to find brides-to-be who are not entirely sure of what they want. Yes, looking at photographs, magazines and portfolios is important, but ultimately your personality and style needs to be reflected in the final design.
Experienced wedding dress designers will know how to help you to think about your own aspirations and how you would like to see these reflected in not only your dress but also potentially the dresses of bridesmaids and the bride’s mother. This is an engagement and understanding that needs close person-to-person contact and perhaps will be a relationship that evolves over time.
Another thing that is far from unusual is the bride who, over time, changes her mind in terms of the final look of the dress. It is also possible that weight and body shape might also vary from the time of the initial discussions and dress outline design to the time when the big day itself draws nearer. In these situations it is important to have a great relationship with your dressmaker and they may be able to react to those changes in order to ensure that your dress fits well.
Of course, the nearer your big day gets the more difficult it might be to reflect fundamental changes in the design, but it might be easier than trying to achieve the same in a scenario where you have purchased your dress off the peg. So, for all these reasons [and many more] it might be worth thinking carefully about using experienced wedding dress designers.
