Five reasons to consider
a custom made gown:

Perfect Fit
A custom made gown fits like it was made just for you because it was. Custom clothiers take into consideration not only your dress size but your proportions when they create a gown for you, and will work with you to make you look the best you can.

Artistic Control
Have a passion for silk? A love of lush, opulent fabrics? A soft spot for lace? The desire to have a little color spice up your gown? A custom made gown can incorporate all of your favorite details. Whether you want a sleek, modern gown or a lavish, historically inspired one, a custom clothier can accommodate your wishes, even when you change your mind.

Absolutely Unique
No one else in the world has your taste, your style, your figure. So why should they be wearing your gown? Why should you be wearing theirs? But that is exactly what happens when you go to a boutique – you end up with someone else's dream.

Exquisite Construction
Are you aware that when you buy a gown off of the rack, several people have had a hand in making it? There are cutters, and stitchers, and the people who do the beadwork, and the ones who do the finishing work. Much of the work on wedding gowns is done overseas, in a small factory setting. When your gown is custom made, you know exactly where it was made and by whom.

Upfront Pricing
Most commercially made gowns need to have some alterations done, even though that gown wasn't put into production until you ordered it.
