How to Design Your Own Wedding Dress
Finding a good designer that you can trust is the first step that you must take. Make sure that the designer you pick is someone you are very comfortable with because he/she will help you every step of the way. Start by telling the style that you are aiming for: traditional, elegant, classy, modern, sexy, and so on and so forth.
You should try going around several bridal shops to help you out on the style that you want. Bring the designer along with you so that the two of you can know which style suits you the best. It’s also a nice way to brainstorm ideas.
Of course when you design your own wedding dress you have to choose what color you’d want it to be in. White has always been the traditional color, but it’s the new millennium, wedding gowns come in every color of the rainbow! The most popular colors among brides are purple, pink, burgundy and black. Don’t forget to discuss the color with your designer.
The moment you’ve decided on the style and color, the designer will need to take your measurements to make sure that the dress will fit you well. After this, he/she can begin working on it.
Compared to buying ready-made dresses, you have a major advantage when you design your own wedding dress and that is, you are in full control of what’s going on. You can communicate with the designer every single step of the way, you can watch the dress being made, so in case there comes a time when you are not satisfied with what’s happening, you can easily change it according to your preferences.
Because this dress is custom designed just for you, it will surely fit better and will flatter your figure more.
