Top Wedding Dress Designer related questions
How do you start wedding dress shopping?
First, set a date to go shopping. This is usually best done a year before your big day. Next, keep an open mind and take your time when browsing. Even if you have a particular look in mind, the dress you eventually fall in love with may surprise you! Once you’ve got a good dress on, try moving around in it. Lastly, take photos and videos of your favourites so that you can compare them later on.
Do you wear a bra with a wedding dress?
It depends. Most gowns have a built-in bra, but if your off-the-rack dress doesn’t have one, you can easily book a seamstress who can sew your favourite strapless brassiere into your dress. If you’re getting a custom gown designed by a Tasker, try coordinating with them about your preferences when it comes to coverage and support.
How do I pick a wedding dress style for my body type?
First things first: know your body type. Second: remember that these are just guidelines, and you may find that a dress that isn’t supposed to “match” your body type can end up looking - and feeling - great on you. A-line and slip dresses flatter most body types, while empire styles look best on pear-shaped brides. Mermaid and trumpet-style gowns look great on inverted triangle-shaped brides, while tea-length gowns are a good choice for petite brides.
What should I bring to the first appointment?
When shopping for and fitting your wedding dress, bring comfortable, nude-coloured undergarments (preferably strapless to make room for more dress styles). Wear or carry the shoes you plan to wear on the day itself - whether these are comfy flats or statement heels. Lastly, try to avoid wearing any accessories before you try stuff on. Jewellery could snag the fabric, get in the way, or even get lost.
Can I have an off-the-rack gown altered?
Yes, you can! To have your wedding gown - or any garment - altered, use Airtasker to find a women’s tailor near you. Since the skill sets may vary from Tasker to Tasker, and not everyone can handle delicate fabrics, it’s best to be specific in your task post and to check the reviews before confirming your alteration appointment.
How long does it take to make a bespoke wedding dress?
It can take anywhere from 2 months to 8 months, depending on the seamstress’ load, the complexity of the dress, and if you’re going for “made to measure” or “made-to-order”. Made to measure dresses are based on a pre-existing pattern and are measured to fit your body, while made-to-order or 100% bespoke gowns are designed, cut, and sewn from scratch. Are you looking to have a bespoke suit made? You can find a local tailor through Airtasker.
What does a wedding dress designer service include?
Now that you’ve decided to get a custom wedding gown for your big day, it’s time to book a wedding dress designer! Airtasker lets you canvass, compare, and pick a designer within just a few minutes. And while some of these steps and their details may vary depending on what you envision, the following are what you can usually expect from a wedding dress designer near you.
Looking at your design pegs or sketches
First, the dressmaker takes a look at your wedding dress design pegs or sketches. These can be magazine photos, a Pinterest board, or even one of your drawings. If you don’t have anything in mind (yet), it’s good to start looking for inspiration as soon as possible.
Deciding the dress’ cut
Your wedding dress’ cut (the silhouette, neckline, sleeve style, skirt, hemline) will depend on your taste, body shape, the time of year when you plan to get married, and even your wedding theme and venue. Your hairstyle, jewellery, and whether you want to wear a veil can also influence the style of your gown. Your wedding dress designer can help you pick out a style that best suits your needs, though the final decision will still be up to you.
Choosing a wedding dress fabric
The kind of fabric you use is just as important as the cut. Do you want a flowy, luxurious look? Silk or satin may be your best bet. Are you going for a crisper style? Ask your wedding dress designer for samples of taffeta and organza. Lastly, ensure that your desired fabric is available in the colour you want.
Once you’ve settled on a fabric and a design, it’s time for the Tasker to take your measurements. To get more accurate measurements, consider wearing skin-tight clothing, wearing the undergarments you plan to use on the day itself, and the shoes that approximate your intended wedding shoes.
Creating a pattern and sewing the dress (with accessories)
Your hired Tasker then creates a pattern based on the measurements and the final design. After creating a pattern, they can cut out the pieces that will make up your wedding dress. After cutting the fabric based on the pattern, the wedding dress designer pins the pieces together and sews them up. Any embellishments, like lace, beading, and sequins, will be added. If you have accessories, like a veil, bolero jacket, or cape, they can sew these as well.
Fitting and alterations
Finally, it’s time for you to try on your dream dress! Your Tasker may go to your location or schedule your visit to their shop. You’ll try on the dress, and they’ll make the necessary alterations based on how it currently fits. Depending on how long you have to go before your wedding day, there may be more than one fitting.
