If budget permits, having an evening gown custom-made is a route that often brings out the best in a bride. When meeting with gown designers, evaluate the options based some of the following factors :

  • Price points.
  • The opportunity to provide your input.
  • Experience of the designer.
  • Whether there is sufficient time.
  • How well you get along with the designer.

Bring along some of these for consultations :

  • Print-outs of designs you may have seen online.
  • Tear sheets from magazines.
  • Colour swatches.
  • A dress that fits you well which you may want to try on for your designer.
