Do you know anyone that has used this dressmaker before? Reputation is absolutely everything when it comes to having a dress custom made. Also, make sure you don’t ignore any warning signs that indicate that they won’t listen to you if you want to raise issues.

My dress for my first wedding was custom made. I couldn’t find anything in a store that fit me, even after alterations so I felt like I had no choice. I actually used a dressmaker recommended to me by a bridal salon and the whole process was seamless. I was very happy with the results! It was nice to have a dress that was 100% just for me.

@lizzieb:  If you do your research and you know what the risks are, I don’t think you will regret it. It’s a fantastic experience and it sounds like the dressmaker you’re leaning towards is listening to what you want 🙂 I hope you end up posting the finished product!

I hope you enjoy the process! Working with someone to make your dress is an amazing process and you will love passing that dress on to your daughter!
