When you envision your dream wedding dress, you probably have a good idea of what you want your gown to look like. Many brides have had the unfortunate experience of trying to find their dream dress in chain wedding stores, only to be disappointed by the lack of variety of off-the-rack dresses available. Having your dress designed specifically for your style preferences is the solution, and in today’s post, we’ll review a few benefits of purchasing a custom wedding gown.

Advantages of Ordering a Custom Bridal Dress

If you are undecided on whether you should purchase your dress off the rack or have one that is custom made for you, it can be helpful to know the benefits of custom wedding gowns. Custom wedding gowns have several advantages over off-the-rack dresses, and we have listed a few of them below:

You’re In Control

We’ve all heard the term “bridezilla,” and while the image of a controlling bride can be comical, there is nothing wrong with knowing what you want when it comes to your dress. When you work with a custom dress designer, you are in control of all design decisions from the initial consultation to the final fitting. The same cannot be said for those unfortunate brides who visit large wedding boutiques.

Choice of High-Quality Materials

When you are in the process of choosing the gown that you will wear on your big day, a lot of consideration must be given to the fabric that the dress is made out of. Upon visiting a run-of-the-mill bridal store, you’re sure to find a lot of satin, tulle, and organza. Unfortunately, not all brides prefer these standard fabrics, and if you are someone who likes choice and variety, working with a custom wedding dress designer allows you to have more selection in what type of fabrics and embellishments go into your gown.

Precise Fittings and Measurements

Shopping for your wedding dress in a chain bridal store can come with many frustrations, but perhaps the biggest one is related to fittings and measurements. When you choose a dress off the rack, the pre-made dress will have measurements that may or may not match your own, making fittings necessary. While fittings will also be necessary with a custom dress, it is unlikely that you will work with the same seamstress for each fitting at a chain store as you would with a custom dress designer.

A One-Of-A-Kind Gown

Choosing a custom wedding dress allows you to completely customize your look from the neckline down to the bottom hem of the gown. While the princess ball gown style might suit some brides, it is not for everyone. If you prefer a dress that is more fitted or one that is detailed with high-end embellishments like crystals or feathers, working with a custom dress designer is the best way to ensure you receive a garment that reflects your style preferences precisely, and you won’t have to worry about seeing another bride with the same dress.

Reduced Stress

Planning a wedding can be stressful. From mailing the invitations and hiring vendors to putting the deposit down on the venue, timing is everything. One aspect of your wedding that should not be stressful is finding the right dress. However, if you choose to search for the perfect wedding dress in a chain store, you might be frustrated when you don’t find it quickly. A custom dress designer delivers a custom wedding gown that perfectly suits your style preferences on your timeframe, lowering your stress levels considerably.
