Every woman deserves a special gown on her wedding day, and whether it’s a lace wedding dress, A-line style, or vintage wedding dress, we know it can be hard. We understand how overwhelming the process can be to find an affordable, flattering, timeless dress. Perhaps you have already tried on countless dresses, and you wish you could pair the top half of the sleeved mermaid wedding dress with the bottom of that youthful, pocketed A-line you loved. What if you had customizable options while maintaining fashion-forward sophistication, without having a dress made from scratch?

Here are a few tips on how to find a range of customizable wedding dress options that fit your personality and budget, along with a few dress options from Beloved by Casablanca Bridal.

Do Your Research

Gather your squad, book an appointment at your local dress shop, and try on all the dresses. What better way to understand the silhouettes that look best on your figure than by gaining insight from those who know you best? Bring your bookmarked/flipped-through magazines and get your Pinterest board organized. Your Bridalista will look at them and talk to you so she can understand your aesthetic and expectations.

Find A Designer That Fits Your Style

Find a designer that offers customizable options that align with your aesthetic. Perhaps you found a silhouette that flatters your figure, but the design’s fabric and color doesn’t work with your skin type. Imagine being able to remove intricate details, color, and/or construction of a dress! You’d have your own personal design and brand when you walk down the aisle.

Budget, Budget, Budget

Let’s be honest, you are able to cut a few corners or draw a line or two through a few names on your guest list to cut costs. The idea of limiting your wedding dress budget, however, is a hard NO. From the very beginning, keep your Bridalista engaged and aligned with your final cost. Doing so will ensure you’re both on the same page and will be able to make affordable custom decisions on your gown.
