Bridal consultants around the country can make suggestions according to styles, colours and budget and listen to considerations you may have. Designer bridesmaid dresses and patterns for those who want something unique or desire to make their own outfits for bridesmaids at a wedding can be found in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban and Port Elizabeth. Stock is carried by certain designers as well and many wedding planners may be offered a selection of stock designs to choose from instead of having a dress made up.
The more creative who want to make bridesmaid dresses themselves from patterns can find a number of different designs for download online. Dressmakers that do this can create styles that are inspired by ready made patterns by changing things here and there such as the neck line or the length for example. Another advantage to doing things this way is that each and every dress can be tailor made to fit junior sizes, plus size figures and each individual bridesmaid exactly.
Prices are going to vary between dressmakers if you are looking for someone to make or help you make the clothing so the best thing to do is work out a specific budget and discuss this with a designer or dress maker before choosing materials, styles and designs. There are many factors to consider including not ‘outshining’ the bride with stunning styles that steal all the glory on the big day. At the same time it is important to keep the latest trends and fashion clothing in mind when looking to buy designer dresses or have them made from the available patterns.
