Did you see this article on One Lovely Day last Friday? It’s written by an Austin bride who had her dress custom-made. As a bride who went this route myself, I have an appreciation for the difficulties involved in opting to go custom-made…. but was also thrilled with the results.
Having her dress custom-made allows a bride to feel that her dress is truly one-of-a-kind, utterly her style, and (in my case) made from sustainable materials here in the US. Surprisingly, I found the final price tag comparable to some of the designer gowns in Austin’s shops…
What about you? Do you already have your dress? Having trouble finding the perfect gown?
