The Perfect Wedding Dress
That Is Not So Perfect- What To Do!
"Avoid buyers remorse!"
"Pick the right wedding gown from the start!"
Some of my bridal alteration clients thought that they had picked their perfect wedding dress. But later they came to the conclusion that they made a mistake. What happened to change their minds?
Well, some brides at their fittings found out that alterations would not completely fix some of the things that was wrong with their gown.
These problems were a result of... poor construction, the wrong style choice for their shape, and low quality fabrics. These types of problems--when fixable--can drive alterations costs up.
You may be wondering... "Why didn't those brides notice those things before purchasing their gowns?" Well think about it. Like most brides, they didn't notice because they were focused on how beautiful the gown was!
For some... the first time they were able to try the gown on in their size was during the first alteration fitting. Most brides when wedding dress shopping have to try on gowns that are way too big or way too small. The gown is clipped and pulled to the center back to make it fit.
So now these brides after receiving their dress were in front of a mirror during their alterations fitting seeing wrinkles, bunching, bagging and puckers that they didn't realize existed.
Others ordered wedding dresses online from overseas and found out the hard way why their bargain wedding dress was such a good deal. The inferior construction and fabrics of the gown plus now the extra work needed to fix the dress on top of normal alterations, have now made their dress an expensive purchase.
And due the rising numbers of brides who mention the fact that they needed to buy another gown after their intial purchase... I figured that this may not be just a local problem but one on a larger scale!
"Another indicator that there is a problem.... Just take a look at the listings by brides selling wedding dresses online. The auction websites and sites selling used wedding dresses show that more, and more brides are experiencing buyers remorse."
