The wedding dress is the most special element for any bride at her wedding. The moment you walk down the aisle clad in that white dress, you want to look and feel like a princess. So here are some factors you need to consider before buying your wedding dress. After all, you need to look the best!
Having a custom-made dress could be priceless. You’d be the only bride in the world wearing that dress so you would of course feel special. If you have a great design in mind, bring it to life. Make use of your designer skills. You can look at a few fashion magazines, bridal catalogues and get ideas. If you feel totally lost, it is better to hire a designer. Also, don’t forget your man. You can get him made to measure shirts too. After all, you both should look special and stunning.
Prices would vary according to the elements of the dress. It would obviously cost more if you have crystal stones, pearls, lace etc. You could save a lot if you buy a package deal, where the train, veil, tiara etc. are also provided along with the dress so that they would be a perfect match for the dress. There may not be a huge price difference in between ready-made dresses and custom dresses. You could buy a dress for 1000 to 4000 dollars while a custom-made dress could be 1200 to 5000 dollars.
- You get what you see
A benefit of buying a dress is that you know exactly what you are buying. You could visit the store, fit-on a few choices and select the best. However, if you opt for a custom-made dress, you do not know the end result until it’s made. Later, if you feel that it does not fit you as you imagined, it might be too late since you’ve already spent on getting it done at the good tailor at Raja’s Fashions. So be very sure of your design. Also, if you are buying a dress, ensure you buy it for the correct size, not two sizes smaller since you are hoping to diet and get in shape. It will be disaster if you cannot fit into your dress on your wedding day.
- Time and trust
Any dress maker would tell you to pick out your dress at least six months prior to the wedding since any additions or alterations may take time. A longer time period is needed if it will be customized. This is without the time taken to design the dress. Also, you need to be able to place complete trust and faith in your dress maker since he will be in charge of the most precious element of your wedding.
