Everyone has seen the famous Alexander McQueen dress Sarah Burton created for Kate Middleton. The dress was perfect for the Princess and future Queen. This has got brides thinking about their dream fairy tale wedding.
Many brides have expressed their interest in creating a similar dress, but with their own twist to make it individual to them. You can find some really beautiful wedding dress fabrics that dress makers can use to create your wedding gown. If you have a particular design in mind it is fairly easy to source out high quality fabrics to include in your design. This can go beyond the fabric for the dress; sourcing your own buttons and trim will add to your truly unique dress. If you are particularly creative you could even draw up how you want your dress to look and take it to a local design.
Another good avenue to check out are local student designers. If there is an art and design college where you live it is worth asking an up and coming young design to make your dress. It is great experience for them and you will end up with a beautiful dress for a fraction of the price. You could ask to see their portfolio before you hire them to get a feel for the kind of work they can produce.
