Guest Blog: Budget Friendly Benefit of Custom Bridesmaids Dresses

Would you ever consider custom making bridesmaid dresses? Here’s an interesting insight to an option not many may think of. Here’s a guest blog by Francesca Castor of Pastel Dress Party, an Toronto-based custom dress company that does just this… their dresses start at $135 and go up to $215.

More often than not, bridesmaid dresses are a big “to-do” list item to get done. Between choosing the right colours and style for your bridesmaids, one of the most important details is fit. Every woman is built differently, which is why the fitting of the dress is so important. While you want your bridal party to rock a cohesive look, it’s still worth noting that you want your ladies to feel just as amazing as you do on your special day. This is where custom-made bridesmaids dresses come in. Every dress is made to fit perfectly. It doesn’t require further alterations –which is always a cost that is often overlooked.

Purchasing custom-made bridesmaid dresses means that it is only going to be one charge, as opposed to paying for the dress and then further alterations, which could be quite costly and time-consuming. It’s a win-win for both the bride and her party, as that money for alterations could be used in another area of the wedding itself.

An added benefit of purchasing custom-made dresses is that you’re often the only person wearing that particular dress. So your bridesmaids can use the dress outside of the wedding to other events. It’s also going to eliminate the “I hope no one else is wearing this dress” thought that crosses every woman’s mind when attending a party. Custom-made bridesmaids dresses are a way for you to get extra creative with your wedding party – style, colour, cut, it’s your call and that might be the best benefit of custom-made dresses after all.
