Top 3 tips for Designing a Custom Wedding Dress Online

Hey! Britt here! I wanted to let you in on my top 3 tips for designing your wedding dress online with us; especially if you are designing long distance where we will be shipping your dress.

  • Accurate Measurements:

Once your dress design is complete, the next step is measurements. We utilize pattern making programs to create your pattern made to fit your measurements. With this in mind, our pattern making program requires several measurements for making your dress. That’s why we then schedule a 1:1 Video Session for measurements. After booking and dress design confirmation, we will send you a link to schedule your virtual appointment for guidance taking measurements.

  • Fabric Swatches

One of the most important aspects of your wedding dress design remains in your choice of fabric. Your fabric choice can add dimension, uniqueness, and overall aesthetic of your dress. We know this is important, so we send you all your lining and base colors of your dress. While we want to prioritize lace swatches, sometimes lace that we don’t currently carry isn’t easily accessible for swatches.

  • Seamstress for alterations

While it is our goal to get the closest fit to your measurements, most dresses ordered custom or in boutiques will need some sort of alterations. When designing your wedding dress online with us, we can point you in the right direction for follow up alterations with a bridal seamstress in your area. If you are local to Southern Idaho, we are happy to adjust your gown complimentary when you order through us!
