While many brides assume they should wear their wedding dress as is, we’re always thrilled to let them know that their dress is a canvas waiting for their personal touches! Customizing your gown is a remarkable way to infuse it with your unique essence, ensuring that it reflects your individuality as you walk down the aisle. In this blog, we'll explore the avenues of customization, from adding sleeves and altering necklines to incorporating accessories and changing undertones.
For the bride wanting to customize she must think about budget, designer and alterations. There are two distinct categories for customization. 1. A complete customized gown which takes around 15 months, additional fees, several fittings ,sketches, muslin patterns, and in studio try-ons. This option is available by private appointment. 2. Small customizations to change a gown without changing the pattern of the design. A bride will still want to make sure that she has room in the budget to accommodate the change. Most of these changes can be requested from the company or by the seamstress of their choice. The bride must be sure that the seamstress feels confident with the alteration request.
Adding a Sleeve
The choice of sleeves can transform the entire look of your dress. You can opt for:
Cap Sleeves: These delicate sleeves add a touch of romance and vintage charm to your gown.
Off-Shoulder Sleeves: For a hint of allure and sophistication, off-shoulder sleeves beautifully frame your collarbone.
Long Sleeves: Long sleeves exude elegance and can be tailored to be fitted or flowy, depending on your preference.
Changing the Neckline
The neckline sets the tone for your gown. Consider these options:
Sweetheart Neckline: A classic choice that flatters various body types, enhancing the décolletage.
V-Neck: This universally flattering neckline elongates the neck and draws attention upwards.
Illusion Neckline: Add a touch of intrigue with sheer fabric and intricate detailing.
Accessories (Belts and Bows)
Accessories can make a world of difference. Add:
Belt: A belt can accentuate your waist and add a touch of glamour, whether it's embellished or a simple ribbon.
Bow: A bow at the back or side can be a whimsical and romantic addition to your gown.
Changing the Undertone
The undertone of your gown can be adjusted to match your complexion. Consider:
Warm Undertones: Warmer shades like ivory or champagne can complement warm skin tones.
Cool Undertones: Cool skin tones can be enhanced by cooler shades like blush or diamond white.
Remember, customization is about turning your vision into reality. It's about making your dress an extension of yourself, reflecting your personality and style. Collaborating with a skilled seamstress or designer will ensure that every alteration and addition is executed with precision and artistry!
