“The dress” is one of the most iconic features of almost any wedding. Brides deserve to look and feel like a million dollars on their special day, and the right wedding dress plays a big role in achieving this. With so much riding on what is arguably the most important wardrobe addition a woman will ever own, a key question for many brides-to-be is whether to opt for a ready-made gown or choose a custom wedding dress.
Here’s why although off-the-rack bridal dresses can look gorgeous, a custom bridal gown is an amazing choice for your wedding.
You’ll have a wedding gown designed exactly to your taste
Many girls dream of the dress they’ll wear for their wedding but finding it can take a while. However, when you get a custom wedding dress made, your dress will be exactly how you imagined it. Whether your dream dress has a flowing train, lavish lace overlay, vintage vibe or a princess ball gown, when you commission a couture gown it is made with you in mind. It’s a “once in a lifetime” gown for a “once in a lifetime occasion”!
A custom wedding dress will be perfectly fitted to your body
The design of your custom dress will have been chosen with your figure in mind. Different styles flatter different shapes and a custom wedding dress is styled to accentuate your best features and is made to your unique measurements. When you have a dress designed, you’ll attend multiple fittings to ensure the fit is perfect.
Meticulous attention to detail
One of the reasons that a custom wedding dress looks so good is because it’s very well made. Dressmaking is a highly skilled profession – it’s no surprise that a custom wedding dress takes months to make. Every detail of the dress is meticulously designed and executed. The result is a dress that’s visually appealing, but also comfortable, a perfect fit and easy to wear especially when it’s from a Melbourne bridal studio like Bernadette Pimenta Couture.
Enjoy the wedding dress creation experience
More than just a dress, opting for a custom bridal gown is also a chance to treat yourself to some well-deserved “me” time. From the initial appointment to discuss your chosen design through to fittings, final details and delivery of the finished gown, the focus is firmly on you. Given the amount of stress that a modern wedding can create, being able to take time out to enjoy some pampering and attention during your dress fittings is always a plus.
It’s also a great way to ensure that your wedding is as “you” as possible. You might feel pressured to have your wedding a certain way to please friends and family but when you choose a custom wedding dress, you have complete control over the design of your gown.
