There are many factors to consider when ordering a custom-made dress. There is nothing worse than ordering a dress online and getting it delivered to your home in the same condition as when you ordered it. Although bespoke isn’t always a sign of high quality workmanship, many designers employ this term to indicate poor quality materials or craftsmanship. In most cases bespoke is used as a word to describe a dress that has been made especially for you, by you. Designers use the term “bespoke” to describe a gown that has been made to your specifications using only the finest materials. The consultation usually begins with the designer taking you through your ideas and creating a sketch of what to wear. Once the dress has been created by the designer the seamstress will measure your body shape and provide you with a number of sample dresses that they will provide. The seamstress will prepare the dress according to your specifications. Bespoke dressmaking can take several fittings, which can prove very tedious. You can choose from two types of custom-made wedding gowns: made-to measure or off-the-rack. Because it’s mass-produced, off-the-rack dresses are generally less expensive. You do not have to pay for the design or embellishment like you would with a bespoke dress. The only downside with off-the-rack is that you cannot choose the fabric, and you cannot choose any particular design. An off-the-rack gown may be the best option if you require a particular design. Bespoke made-to-measure is handcrafted to your exact specifications, so if you want a certain design you may have to choose from a range of wedding gowns rather than just one. When choosing bespoke wedding dresses the first thing you will notice is that they are all uniquely yours. Only the person who made the gown is the one who can tell you exactly what style and design you prefer. This is one of the things that sets bespoke brides out apart. You can ask anything you want. Ask for a specific color or detail in embroidery. Designers can help you choose the right color for you or what type of fabric will flatter your skin best. Bespoke designed bespoke dresses are fitted after the measurements are taken. If you go with off-the-rack wedding dresses you may run into problems because the company might take too many measurements, leaving some parts incomplete and thus cutting your price. With a made-to-measure dress you will be getting the dress perfectly fitted, but because of the bespoke design there will still be slight variations to fit perfect. For brides with limited time and don’t want to spend the day at a salon, bespoke wedding gowns are a great choice. The price savings can add up to over fifty percent less than a one-off gown at a bridal salon. For brides looking for a unique gown, bespoke bridal gowns can be a good choice. There are so many different styles and cuts available that it will be hard to choose just one. This option allows you to get precisely what you need. When you choose a handcrafted design from a professional seamstress, you will have to pay a seamstress to create the dress for you, unless the budget allows you to buy a one-of-a-kind dress. Most bespoke designed wedding dresses are quite beautiful, but the cost of a professional seamstress makes the price almost prohibitive. If money is not a factor, then a professional seamstress can still make you a beautiful dress. You will get a tailored, fitted bodice and custom-made neckline. If you are looking for a more fitted or tailored bodice, then the seams can be sewn together. A bride should always consider her body type and how best to carry off the look of a bespoke wedding dress. For those brides that have the body type that can wear a body shaping gown, a gown with fitted bodices is a good idea for the more naturally petite brides. For fuller brides, a full skirt with a high waistline and a V-neckline is a good choice.
