Getting the dress :
 
  • In most cases, a gown purchased off-the-rack will be more affordable.
  • A custom-orderd gown will be done to specifications.
  • If time is of the essence, the off-the-rack option would be best.
  • Made-to-measure will require more lead time and more effort in the design and fitting processes. 

 

Tip : Consider going the custom-route if you have a specific design in mind and if budget permits. Have a look here http://www.weddingsmalaysia.com/vendors/gowns/9.
