I bought my wedding gown already, but had really had my heart set on a blush-colored gown. I know I could just go the custom China route, and have a new dress made alltogether. . . but I was wondering if I could save some money by just having the dress dyed? Are there professionals in the world who do it? My dress is currently ivory color, for reference. I just want a light Blush pink.

@usagidollie: What’s the fabric?

mainly tulle. It’s a Vera, so I’m assuming silk-faced. I am not entriely sure. I know Polyester is a no-go for dyeing.
it’s that dress, and the description says organza and tulle. But still not sure if those are silk-blend or poly-blend fabrics. I suppose I should err on the side of poly-blend since it’s David’s?

@usagidollie: It really depends on if your dress is all one material. What type of stitching, beading, accents etc. There are places which do it. You would likely have to send your dress via mail, as most are located in high fashion areas where designers work out of. OR you may be able to find someone local, but chances are they would be nexperienced at unassembling your dress and resembling it- if need be.
I would probably go the custom route. Unless you have all 1 fabric and barely any beading it probably would be very risky. I do hope in the end you get exactly what you were hoping and dreaming of.

There’s blizzard beading underneath the lfanges on the skirt. So you’re right, probably not safe. . .
I was thinking about getting the Gemma from Jasmine’s, but really I like that the flowers are more constructed and come up higher on this one.
Plus, I have already paid this in full. It’s in my closet right now. I feel like I should’ve thought this through more before commiting haha -_____-
