What to Consider for Custom Made Bridesmaid Dress

Walking down the aisle in a dress that makes you feel like the most beautiful bride is every woman’s dream. This always needs to be complemented with gorgeous bridesmaids’ dresses that fit into the theme of the wedding. Selecting a dress that will complement all bridesmaids is always a challenge considering ladies have different shapes, heights, complexion, and tastes. When caught up under such a demanding situation, yet it is your wedding and you want it to be just the way you had imagined it; what do you do? Custom making bridesmaids’ dresses can come in handy during such occasions, but first you must have an idea of the kind of dress you want before you approach a seamstress.

When choosing a design, first look at your gown if it is classic, modern or vintage and let the bridesmaids dresses evoke the same feel. Let the chosen design be able to flatter them all, however if their shapes are so different each bridesmaid can chose a design that flatters her figure however the fabric and the color should remain the same.

The season and the time of day when the wedding will take place should also be considered when deciding on a design. Be kind and decide upon something that they can also wear at a different occasion later.
As you settle for a color of your choice, consider the complexion of the bridesmaids, which could range from pale to dark skin tones. If you have got this range of skin tones in your lineup, choose something that will not wash some of them out or darken them. Also do not forget their hair color, work with something that will not clash with the hair color too.

Finances are important to consider, as not every bridesmaid pocket weighs the same. Work within a budget that everyone can comfortably afford.

Always remember as you work to please most of your bridesmaids needs do not bend so much to a point that will make you feel your dream wedding has been snatched from you. It is your day, you get to have the last say, and they should help you make your dream come true and not to distort it. Once all has been agreed upon, the seamstress will take the measurements. The custom made dresses will be done once the bridesmaids do the final fitting and you feel it is perfect.
