It might be strapless–but it doesn’t have to be.
It might be white–or gold or silver or pink.
It might be a classic style that everyone will love—or something eccentric, bold, utterly simple, or madly embellished.
A wedding gown from the store is one that has to “mostly” fit well and flatter 100s of body types.
It is one that 10,000 customers across the country will need to buy for the designer to make money,—so anything too different must be avoided.
A custom wedding gown is a gown that is designed from top to bottom to look great on your body. The waist of the gown can be placed at the exact spot on your body that looks best.
Its cup-size begins life as your cup size. And the sleeves and hem are cut for your height the first time around.
But the real beauty of a custom gown is that it is designed for you and can be as rich with everything that you love as you can imagine.
We work with you sketching ideas and sourcing fabrics that match your taste and give your wedding a style that matches you and your setting.
The gown is floor length, but cut with handmade suede ribbons with brass buckles that allow the hem of the dress to be raised off of the ground for dancing and strolls in the woods.
The corset is made from leather and an iridescent brocade fabric with a medallion pattern and is worn over a cotton batiste blouse with suede straps to cinch in the belled sleeves.
Also shown in the pics is a matching silk mini-top hat with leather and peacock feather embellishments.
The groom’s matching outfit (which we made for our menswear shop www.DenverBespoke.com) has a matching vest and string tie, with a brown tropical wool duster and pant and a stand collar shirt.
All of our wedding dresses are MUSLIN FIT. For this process, we first make a mock-up of the pieces to mail to you (if you are a national or international customer) or fit in person (if you are local).
Using this technique, we make pieces for weddings around the world.
Because each dress is fully custom and muslin fit, the prices include any and all possible alterations (usually we don’t need to make any!). So when you think about pricing, keep in mind that alterations on store bought dresses often cost hundreds of dollars.
To get started on a custom dress contact Lianna K (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will get back to you with sketches and swatches.
