New Custom Wedding Dress Toronto
“Bespoke gowns are for any bride looking to personalize her wedding day style, the bride who doesn’t see herself in the types of dresses typically found in bridal salons, and the bride who finds bits and pieces of dresses she loves and wants to combine into one dress,” says Amanda Ergen-Jennings, owner of MinkMaids, a bespoke bridal design company located in Milwaukee.
Take the time to research a designer who has made dresses similar to the styles you love. For example, Ergen-Jennings tends to design with structured fabrics and architectural silhouettes. “A designer who matches your design aesthetic will ensure you’re getting the best quality of work and will help you have the best bespoke experience,” she says. Being on a budget may sway you toward the designer with the lowest cost, but if you end up with a dress you’re not in love with and have to buy something new, you won’t be saving anything. “Many designers are willing to work within a budget if the bride is open to modifications,” Ergen-Jennings says.
