Custom-Designing your Own Wedding Dress!

One of the first rituals that most brides find themselves doing after getting engaged is the traditional ripping-open-of-bridal-magazines-and-clipping-out-dream-gowns-for-later-reference. Often a scrapbook or album will emerge from this ritual, filled with cut-and-pasted creations inspired by “I like this trim but not this skirt” or “This would be perfect without the top or the trim, and with this bow.” Many brides find themselves exasperated after days of bridal shop hunting, after it becomes more and more clear that compromise is part of the process. Many brides will find themselves less than happy after spending so much time crafting the perfect dream dress in their minds. The dress-shopping process can become even more disappointing if you’re a plus-size bride who’s found her options waning. The answer to this problem is more simple (and a lot less expensive) than you might think: Have a dress designed just for you!
Designers like Rose DeSimone Bridal offer gowns designed for you and your body, and the result is something that works and fits better than you could have possibly hoped for. Custom-designed gowns are a great way to end up with a quality dress for a bridal shop price tag. Instead of settling for a gown that you find off the rack (and compromising your vision for your wedding), a custom-designed dress will never disappoint. Here are some tips about the process of finding and purchasing custom-designed gowns from the experts at Rose De Simone Bridal: - Be clear and ask a lot of questions! Having a gown made just for you is a lot like getting your hair cut. If you aren’t clear about what you expect, you run the risk of getting a product you aren’t happy with. Ever get a super-short haircut when you wanted a bob because you weren’t clear about what “kind of short” meant? This situation is similar. - Make sure your designers take their own measurements. - Ask how far in advance you should order your dress. - Ask how long your designer has been designing/sewing. - A seamstress makes dresses from patterns, but a custom designer has the creative ability to make something unique and just for you! Know the difference when you’re shopping for your custom-made dream dress!

Your wedding gown

Weddings are special for everyone. The most visible thing on that day is the wedding gown. You must ensure that your gown is perfect as you will be the centre of attraction on the day. However, that does not in any way mea that you will have to spend a fortune on your gown. You can look as graceful and beautiful in a budget gown. You will just need to learn to properly carry it. To zero in on the gown that fits you best, you will need to search, search and search. Visit as many stores as you can. If possible, search online too. The more options you have, the better will be your choice. If you want a customized gown, then you need to order it much before hand. Then you would need to do fitting sessions before you actually can give a go ahead. If you wish to opt for a discount wedding gown, then you must be extra cautious. A discount gown might look stunning in the catalogue but in reality, it might not be so pretty. You can also seek the advice of a wedding consultant who will study your body type, skin texture and so on and suggest the right gown for you.

Choosing Your Wedding Gown

Your wedding dress should be something very special to you. After all it is your special day and you would want to look your best. You need to do a thorough survey before zeroing in on any one. This has to be a relaxed job. You must not rush it. You can carry pictures of the gowns you like as a sample to your bridal consultants. You must take one of your bridesmaids with you for a second opinion. You can also involve all your friends and family for an opinion. Your jewelry should also be coordinated with the gown. On the D day, make sure that you save your dress from food or drink stains. You have to be very careful with the way you handle your dress. One small stain and your special dress is ruined. You must be careful about the flowers you use too as flowers have a tendency to stain. If you are carrying your dress to a different location on the day of your wedding, then you must make sure that you put them in water proof garment bags. Once you wear the dress, you must be very careful not to trip on it. Lift your skirt and walk. This way, you can also avoid it getting soiled.
