Custom made wedding dress?

Recommended Posts

I was just curious if any of you have gone this route. I read some good things about a company called Julius Bridal. Apparently they have a store front somewhere in NY, but the dresses are made in China. You can send them a picture of a dress you like and they'll custom make it.

 

This is the dress that I really love, but since it's from a Tara Keely Spring 2006 collection, I haven't been able to locate it to try on, so I don't know how exactly it would look on me sad.gif

Julius Bridal quoted me $500 to make it, but I am not sure if I should do it or not. I still have about 9 months before my wedding and it should come in 1-2 months, so I would still have time to find an alternative if it doesn't work out, but I really hope that wouldn't happen.

 

So what do you all think? And if anyone has had any experience getting a dress custom made, I'd love to hear your experience. Thanks!!!

I had my dress custom made by a local designer, I didn't try on the original dress either 'cause I couldn't find it but I just knew it was THE dress.. it wasn't too cheap but I did save $1,000 so I think it was worth it!

The dress is beautiful!

 

While I'm not familiar with Julius Bridal, I did read a chapter about dresses made in China in the book Bridal Bargains. Getting dresses made in China is supposed to be an affordable option to spending thousands on a couture dress.

 

Since you have time, you may want to do a little more research first. Good luck!

Thanks Tlseege. I'm glad to hear someone else likes it because I've tried looking for this dress used, but no luck...So I was thinking it wasn't very popular. But I love how simple and flowy it is. Plus, I'm really set on strapless. Just wish I could find it!

i think there are a few girls on here that had their dresses made - and most of them were happy. i can't remember who, but i recall someone not having a positive experience. not sure where they all had them made though.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
