How to Design Your Own Wedding Dress
Find a designer who is going to work with you. In fact, the best idea is to make this the first thing you do so that the designer will be there to help you in every step of the process. You need to start off by telling the designer what kind of style you want: modern, elegant, classy, sexy, traditional and so on.
Have a visit of some different bridal shops before you start and better to bring the designer along with you, if possible. Your professional designer can help you determine what styles suit you and flatter you the most. Additionally, you may come up with some really great ideas for your own dress in these shops.
Choose a color. Do you have to wear white? ….No! Though white is the standard and traditional color, wedding dresses in every color of the rainbow are available today. Go for some more popular options: soft pink, purple, pale gold, and black. Choose the one that makes your skin gorgeous and compliments the style of your wedding.
Take measurements. Once the style and color are determined, your designer is going to take your measurements to have you fitted for the dress so that they can begin working on it.
Advantages You Will Gain
Surly you will benefit a lot from designing your own wedding dress and the major one is that you will have exactly what you want and know it will be totally unique. You are able to communicate with the creator of the dress every step of the way and get to actually watch the dress being built, thus if at any point there is something that you are not completely satisfied with, you are able to make the appropriate changes.
What’s more, the custom-made dress will fit you better than any other off-the-rack dress in bridal shops, thus flatter your shape as much as possible.
A budget is absolutely essential in the process of designing your own dress. Costs can easily spiral out of control, and if you don’t document them, you may end up paying for more for your dress than you planned. By setting up a budget, you will have something to stick to, thus will be less likely spend more than you need to.
