Dress design

If your having difficulties finding the dress of your dreams or you have in mind a dress but you just cannot find it,  or you like a certain neckline on one dress, the sleeves on another then  consider taking your ideas, to a dress designer.  A Designer can offer you a variety of ways to have that designer dress at affordable prices.



If your dress requires hemming and you want to protect the lace edging, consult with

your seamstress on the options opened.  Many hemlines can be raised by lifting the waistline. Also if your dress does not bustle the train  so that it easy for you to move around discuss with your seamstress about ways of making it easier for you.


Reserving alterations services

As soon as you have selected your gown, be sure to make an appointment to reserve

the services of your seamstress.  Many bridal specialists are booked in advance.

Be prepared to pay for alterations and include this in your budget.


Making Bridesmaid dresses

If you are having your dresses made it is wise to buy the fabric all at once as fabric comes in different dye lots and can be difficult to match.  Ask your seamstress if she will "shop" with you in making the selection of fabric.  It is wise to have the same seamstress make all the dresses to keep the dresses similar.


Length of bridesmaid dresses

When hemming the dresses, first determine the length then measure up from the floor.  Be sure that your bridesmaids are wearing the shoes that she will be wearing on the wedding day.  This way, the hemlines will align in the photographs even though your bridesmaids are at different heights.
