Customizing A Wedding Gown
Solutions Bridal is known for more than just customer service, we are also known for customizing wedding dresses. Carrying handmade wedding gowns by North American designers, custom changes are available for every dress. When a bride comes shopping for her wedding gown, her bridal stylist will let her bride know what custom changes are available. For example, if a bride wants to wear sleeves on her wedding day, but the gown she loves is strapless, through the designer of the gown or through alterations she can add sleeves. Below are different options and ways to customize a wedding gown.
Gown ‘Alicia’ by Oscar de la Renta is a perfect gown for a bride to make any custom change she would like. For more ideas or questions about customizing a wedding dress, click here.
Sleeves are available for any wedding gown. Because this wedding gown is strapless, we would recommend a lace bolero. The ‘Jamie’ bolero is also ordered as ‘custom sizing’. Owner and seamstress, Holly with Tears of Joy Seamstress Services, will take a bride’s measurements, handmake, and alter the bolero. Becasue the bolero is custom in sizing, it will fit each bride exactly the way she wants for her special day.
Off the shoulder cap sleeves are a classic detail that will never go out of style on a wedding dress. The final touch takes this gown to a whole new level. An off the shoulder detail can be added to any wedding gown. For a bride to add this custom change, we would order the exact fabric of her wedding gown and during alterations, her seamstress would create and add the detail. The cap sleeves can also be made detachable. So a bride can wear the cap sleeve down the aisle and for photos, and for the reception, the gown can be strapless.
To cinch in a bride’s waist and add a hint of sparkle, a beaded sash can be added to any wedding gown. Sashes available with or without a ribbon and are available in silver, antique gold, and rose gold with an array of Swarovski crystal options including pearls and opal, each bride can have exactly what they want. Below, sash by Maria Elena is an antique gold sash with clear and golden shadow colored Swarovski stones and hints of opal. When ordering a sash for a bride, we will take a measurement of her waist so it fits her like perfectly.
