Why Should You Go For Custom-made Over Pre-made?

  • Alterations are done along the custom process and is included in the set price so you will not have to worry about paying any additional amounts.

Unfortunately, off-the-rack dresses don’t always allow for customisations, therefore brides often have to compromise greatly on what they’re after. Along with this, pre-made gowns are often constructed from nasty synthetic materials which can look plastic-like and even cause irrational as they are produced from heavy chemicals. Bridal gowns that are pre-made will never guarantee that perfect fit as they aren’t made to your body measurement. You will most likely need to pay additional for alterations which on average can cost $500-$1000, sometimes even more… yikes!!
