I have a really specific idea in mind for my dress and due to that I ideally want to get in made instead of buying one. Does anyone have any experience with this? I'm going to go to a dress shop regardless so I can try on dresses of that style to see if they will suit me but has anyone else done this?
Hi I am thinking of doing the same :)
I went to see a designer in Bournemouth and it was definitely worth it, I have my dream dress. She has dresses you can choose from but she will make one for you from your specifications, here is her website - she was really reasonable too - and she treated me like a VIP http://www.mojganweddingdresses.com
I had a specific style in mind, went to a local shop just to see and bought “ the one” that was the complete opposite of what I thought I wanted
Im having one made from China. Try Maya Zhao and Solobridal xx
I done this I knew I wouldn’t find what I wanted in the shops I only went just to say I had been dress shopping. I had in my head what I wanted and got exactly that from my dress maker. Xxx
I was gonna get one made if i couldn't find the one but I did find it u never know u might find the one in a dress shop
I went dress shopping for the experience. And then made my own dress, so go exactly what I wanted.
I had something in mind and then ended up getting the complete opposite. Definitely go to a store and try different styles on, hopefully they'll have something similar to what you have in mind xx
I'm having mine made by a work colleague but any good dressmaker will be able to make the dress of your dreams.
I was totally thrown that the dress I chose was the complete opposite of what i had in mind. So is defo try on lots of different styles before going to a dress maker 😊 good luck
I'm planning on having my dress made. But still going to try dresses on to make sure the style I choose suits me.
Yes! If you are based in London, Acacia Bridals are great and very reasonably priced! x
I am getting my dress made.
I'm still not sure what I want as I'm attracted to a few different styles.
I still went dress shopping for the experience and tried on lots of different styles to see what I like. But I didn't find "the one".
So today was my first consultation with my dress maker. And she has put all my worries to bed.
It is a collaborative organic process in which we decide and design as we go to ensure I get the perfect dress.
At the moment I have no idea what dress I will decide on until the fittings nearer the day. And that is really exciting for me!
And to top it off, I have told her my budget and she will design it to that budget so I cannot go over, unless I personally request more expensive fabrics.
I am so excited.
I tried on a few dresses to get an idea of what I liked, and then designed my own and had it made by Jeca Bridal for about 1/3 of the cost. Was a bit nervous about ordering a custom design online but it fit perfectly and was exactly what I wanted
