Wedding Guest Dresses

Wedding Guest

Dress Inspiration

Have you ever been invited to a wedding and immediately started thinking 'what am I going to wear?'.

Short, long, lace, floral, there are so many options as if you were the one getting married. It can be overwhelming but if you first start thinking of the silhouette that you love wearing and go from there is so much easier.

Make sure you know all the colours in the wedding and DO NOT wear those. In a mixture of floral or pattern is fine, but the Bride wants her lady's and colours to stand out, so let her have that for sure. Know if it's black tie or more semi-formal, that also can tell you how fancy to be when choosing a super say beaded dress opposed to a more say 'Sunday best' dress.

There are still loads of options and the pictures attached will show you dresses for the time of year, whether it be Spring/Summer or Fall/Winter. And of course you don’t have to wear a dress (I am biased because I make them lol :P) if you’re a total pants kinda girl, you have so many pieces to choose from as well. Like rompers (pants or shorts), gorgeous long wide leg pants with a beautiful sequined top and oh so much more!

The ideas are endless girl and I want you to have fun because you’re going to have a ton of it at that wedding so why not dress the part. Especially if you don’t get out very often. HA listen I totally understand and I, myself can’t wait to go to my brothers wedding on July 13th and dance the night away while celebrating our two families uniting. It’s going to be a total blast and guess what I did, I took the dress that I made for my baby shower altered it to fit me, while changing it up a little bit, now its absolutely perfect! I can’t wait to show you all, I will definitely be posting on all the socials for you to see :)

Top 10 FAQS about custom dresses

Commonly Asked questions

about having your

dress designed

  1. Do you have sample dresses?

    • Yes, I do have sample dresses that you can come and see however they’re all from photo shoots, as brides keep their dresses.

  2. Can I try dresses on?

    • Not here, I absolutely recommend finding a style that you 100% love and fits your body type before meeting with me. This will help to ensure that the finished dress will be exactly what you wanted.

  3. What is included in the quote provided?

    • Everything included for this dress quote; fabric, travel, labour, minor alterations and two fittings. I try my best to work within your budget to create the dress of your dreams.

  4. How involved can I be in the process?

    • You can be as involved as you want, some brides want me to send updates and pictures as I find fabrics and get things done, others wait until there first fitting. Totally up to you, this is your investment so I will provide as much information as I can for you during the process. 

  5. What is the process?

  6. Is there a required deposit? Is it refundable?

    • Yes there are two deposits required; one is for booking the first meeting appointment which is $100 to hold your spot and will be taken off the final payment. The second is 50% of the final payment at the first meeting, this ensures completions and enables me to purchase fabrics for your custom dress. Neither of these deposits are refundable.

  7. Do you make dresses for the whole Bridal Party?

    • Yes, I make dresses for you, your ladies, the mother of the bride/groom and the flower girls. I can even create ties for the groomsmen.

  8. How many fittings will I have?

    • That is dependent on a few things; typically there are two fittings the first and the final pickup, however if weight is lost or something about the dress need to be drastically alter(does not happen often) then there may be 3-4. This is to ensure the perfect fit, when it is custom made it is truly made for you!

  9. What types of fabrics do you use?

    • I find quality fabrics within your budget that coincide with the month your wedding is in, ie; if your wedding is in the summer months I will find light weight satin’s, silks chiffon’s and laces that work well with the style of your dress but won’t make you swelter in the heat.

  10. How long does creating a dress take?

    • Currently I am booking meetings 1 year to 8 months out from your wedding date, depending on if they are bulk orders or single dress orders. Everything depends on when fabrics are found, purchased and then scheduling fittings.

I hope these have answered any questions you may be having about making a custom dress your dream dress. If there’s anything else you’d love to know, I’d be happy to help, contact me (Amanda Garrett).
