Choosing a Custom-Made Wedding Gown: 3 Things to Consider

Your wedding is one of the most special events in your life. The centre of the wedding is the bride, and so a lot of brides want to choose a customised wedding gown which will help them to feel comfortable while also looking fantastic. If you have decided to opt for a custom wedding dress, you may at first be overwhelmed with the choice on offer. Below is a guide which will help you to make the important decisions so you can create your perfect wedding dress.

The Material

Wedding dresses can be made from a wide range of materials. When thinking about the material, you will, of course, have to consider the cost of different fabrics and laces. For example, silk is much more expensive than cotton. However, you should also think about when the wedding will be taking place. If you are planning to hold your wedding during the hot Australian summer, you will want to choose lightweight fabrics which will allow your skin to breathe and which will keep you cool. For example, you may decide on satin, silk or charmeuse. However, if you have opted to get married during the colder months, you may wish to include a fake fur pelt which will create a stylish look while also keeping you warm.

The Cut

Next, you should consider the cut of the dress. Some brides have an idea of the cut they want before they contact a custom wedding dress supplier. Unfortunately, the cut they have in mind doesn't always match the shape of their body. Wearing the wrong cut can really spoil the look and the line of the fabric you have selected. To avoid this situation, you should take your lead from the staff in the wedding dress shop. The staff will be able to take measurements of your body before recommending the best cut of dress for your body shape. 

The Colour

Finally, you should consider the colour of the dress. Traditionally, brides have always worn white. However, in recent years, coloured wedding dresses are becoming an increasingly popular option. For example, you could choose a light pastel shade such as blue or cream to help to create a fairy-tale look. If you are feeling more adventurous, you could opt for a metallic silver or gold wedding dress.
