Many brides will say a customized dress is so much more appealing than to simply limit the options to what is available in the bridal store. The customized dress has plenty of practical benefits. Perfect fit and individuality are likely to be the most appealing reasons to invest the extra time and money into having this type of dress made. Let’s take a look at a few of the key benefits.
A wedding dress bought off the rack will often need adjustments. However, the customized dress is made to precisely match your size and shape to give the best fit possible. Also, with the regular visits to the dressmaker for fittings, the bride will have the excitement of seeing the dress created from the initial design to completion.
The customized dress is certain to appeal to the bride in search of a look that is truly unique or bold. Instead of going with the traditional colors of white or ivory, the unique look can be achieved with a dress in a vibrant color like scarlet red, soft blue, emerald green or pink.
The custom dress is made to match the exact shape of the bride’s body shape, so there shouldn’t be any problem with creating a look that fully brings out the best features. For instance, a bride with a triangle-shaped body can benefit from a dress that will highlight the waistline and widen the shoulder area. An apple-shaped body can benefit from a dress that helps to visually elongate, an hourglass-shaped body will look better when balance is given to both the upper and lower parts of the body, and the rectangle-shaped body will look better when it is possible to visually make the bust bigger and hide a wide waistline.
The process of having a customized dress made from scratch means it will be necessary to have plenty of in-person meetings with the designer. This will typically mean that a dress is bought locally, which can help to support the trade in your local area.
Create an heirloom
A one of a kind wedding dress can make a wonderful heirloom that can be passed to children in the future. It will create a great piece of nostalgia that will help to remember a wonderful event from the past. Alternatively, there is the option of selling the dress on if there aren’t any loved ones that would be interested in receiving it.
