What are custom bridesmaid dresses?
Your bridesmaids are a group of pretty special ladies. Get your bridal tribe custom bridesmaid dresses in Perth right here at Envious Bridal and Formal.
We’re a bridal and formal store that focuses on and specialize in custom made designs - made especially for each individual customer because we know each bride has a different theme and style in mind, not to mention different sized and shaped bridesmaids.
The bridesmaid dresses make a statement alongside the bride and so it’s an important choice to pick a design that not only looks flattering on the bridesmaid but also ensure their comfort in the chosen style. However this is not always possible with off the rack bridesmaid dresses. This is the reason why we highly recommend getting your bridesmaid dresses custom made.
With our custom made bridesmaid dress service, you’re absolutely spoiled for choice and the possibility of designs and custom options is practically endless.
We design all our dresses so if you’re unsure as to what you’re wanting for your bridesmaids, we welcome you to browse our exclusive designs. We offer customization on all our dress designs to suit your bridesmaid’s preference – such as changing straps, sleeves, necklines etc. In short, custom made bridesmaid dresses are “one off” dresses made for your bridesmaids.
We designed our collection of bridesmaid dresses with the spectrum of different body shapes in mind – thereby, our exclusive bridesmaid collection comprise of a range of different silhouettes, fabrics and fit that has proven to be extremely popular. Many customers forgo any design change to our bridesmaid collection as the bridesmaid dress ticks every box to meet their bridesmaid requirements.
That said, if you have a specific bridesmaid dress design in mind, we also accept custom made orders for bridesmaid dresses based on your own design.
Can you make a bridesmaid dress from a sample photo?
Yes, most definitely. Our experienced dressmakers can work off the photos you provide whilst incorporating any changes you may require. Ideally you will provide us with high resolution photos of as well as several angles of the dress such as the front of the dress and back at minimum. This is to allow us to see the dress in it’s entirety and enable us to provide you with appropriate feedback if you require any custom changes.
How much does it cost to get a custom bridesmaid dress?
The exact price will vary according to the dress design, fabrics selected and if the dress has any embellishment features such as beading, lace trims and appliques etc. Generally speaking, the custom bridesmaid dresses we have made for past customers vary between $250.00 - $450.00; with the average price sitting around $329.00. This is a fairly reasonable and affordable price point as you are getting a dress made, in your choice of colours and permittable custom changes to the design.
For off the rack bridesmaid dresses, you would be limited to what the bridal store has available in that particular style in terms of colour, sizing and of course, custom changes isn’t offered. Thus, you would have to spend extra to get an independent dressmaker, tailor or seamstress to make any custom changes to the dress that you may require.
Alteration prices are not included in the price of the custom made bridesmaid dress but we do offer very affordable alteration rates with our in house tailors whom have over 30 years of experience. What you may find with our dresses is that your bridesmaids may only require very minor alterations to get that absolute perfect fit – such as taking the dress hem up, taking in the bust or adjusting the straps.
How long does it take for the bridesmaid dresses to be made?
Our standard production lead time to make your bridesmaid dresses are 8-10 weeks from the date of your order being placed with us, and we also offer rush orders should you require your dresses sooner. We recommend you allow an addition 2-3 weeks on top of your order time to account for alterations to the bridesmaid dresses - especially if the girls have lost or gained weight.
