Shopping for your wedding dress is probably the most exciting part of planning your wedding; however it can be the most stressful especially when you cannot seem to find the perfect gown. Interpreting your ideas and fantasies into the dress you will walk down the aisle with can prove to be a challenge, espeWebsite gown 2cially when you have been trying on several gowns which are almost , but not quite what you want.


This is where your designer comes in. With so many options to choose from on where to source your gown from, having your dress designed and customized for you works better especially if you are very particular on the design you want.


Here are a few advantages of having a designer create your dream dress for your special day:-


  • You want to find the right size


Finding the perfect gown is a challenge, finding it in your size is an even bigger task.


Having a customized gown allows you to have a perfect fitting gown, specially designed to shape and flatter your body type. While getting a ready made gown is the preferred option for most brides, wedding gown sizes typically run one or two sizes smaller than everyday clothing so it is crucial to get the right size.


Dresses that have beadwork or that are smaller in size are tougher to alter and will end up costing you a lot more. Customizing you dress will always save you the trouble of wondering if your gown will be altered right. The dress is made specifically to fit you, the bride, and not a general body type.


  • You want someone who cares about the details


Details; these are the little thing we may overlook or relegate to the back burner when shopping for a dress.


Your designer is trained to pay attention to every single thing that concerns your overall look on your wedding day. This goes from the design of the dress, to the little accessories on the gown all the way to your shoes.


The designer is concerned about how your dress will match your accessories and jewellery, what kind of underwear will fit the dress, the type of veil that will flatter the dress and how to make every view of the gown flattering from the front to the back. Your dress is also designed to fit into your theme, stand out from other gowns, suit the location of your wedding and conform to the activities you wish to perform on that day.
