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!

Before you start implementing your ideas, make sure you have a person who has the required skills of sewing and stitching. If you can do it yourself, then there is nothing like it.
