The Wedding Affair’s Perfect Planning Guide… Couture Bridal
Seeking something truly unique for your wedding day? A couture wedding dress could just be the answer for you! Made to measure and a design that is personal to you. You can be sure your bridal gown will be one of a kind!
For this weeks Perfect Planning Guide we are looking into the reasons why a couture gown may just be perfect for you, and why you may choose to go down the route of getting a beautiful bespoke dress. We will be featuring the finest designers who we just know will create you something gorgeous! (Prepare to get serious dress envy!)
A One Of A Kind Gown
You’ve ordered your perfect dress and can’t wait for the day you get to wear it, but then a couple of months before the big day your friend gets married in exactly the same frock! (We hear of the unimaginable in this job!) It is understandable that you want to feel completely special and unique on your wedding day, and couture wedding gowns are one of the ways you can make sure you look different to any other bride.
You don’t have to choose florescent colours or unconventional details, just having a one off dress made for you will make your wedding dress as unique as you are.
Not Found “The One”?
We unfortunately hear this all the time. It is totally normal for bride’s-to-be to not feel like they have found ‘the one’, even after trying on possibly hundreds of dresses. Well, don’t worry… this is completely normal and understandable. Every woman has an image of their dream dress in their heads, and if you cant find the gown to match then this could leave you feeling pretty down about your wedding.
This could be where a bespoke designer steps in. They will be able to help you step by step into creating your dream dress, everything from the style, colour and fabric. Never settle for less than your dream gown with a couture designer.
Free To Mix & Match Styles
Like the top of a dress, and the bottom of another? No problem! If you’re having a dress custom made you can have anything you desire as long as your budget can accommodate it. You will be surprised at how many brides decide they like the skirt of one dress, but the neckline of another, and just can’t find a gown that combines the two? With a couture wedding dress you can show the two dresses to your dress maker and have them combine the elements that you love. Couture wedding dresses are a great way to incorporate your own personality into your bridal outfit
Just The Right Fit…
If you are an awkwardly shaped bride, perhaps with a different sized top and bottom half, it can be tricky to find a beautiful dress to fit you perfectly, even after alterations. One of the main reasons brides list for choosing couture wedding dresses is that they want a perfect fit. A couture wedding dress can be designed to flatter your body shape whatever it may be, skimming over your curves and adding shape where necessary.
Now you may be thinking, where do i get my perfect bespoke gown? If you have already brought your dream wedding dress and are having alterations to make your gown look how you want it to, then you may have a seamstress in house who may do the alterations for you, some bridal boutiques also offer a full bespoke service, however this does vary.
For a full bespoke service we recommend Anita Massarella, did you meet her at our wedding fair last weekend at The Devonshire Arms? Her dresses are simply beautiful and ever so elegant! At The Wedding Affair we also recommend Adam Shaw Couture, his dresses and designs are breath taking!
Do make sure you take a look at our fabulous couture designers and stores that offer this service here!
