Finding your dream dress can be one of the highlight moments in your wedding planning. However we know that it can also be an overwhelming task, especially when it comes to considering how much you want to invest in your wedding gown.
In this blog, we will explore the different factors that determine the cost of wedding dresses at Bluebell Bridal and provide an overview of the price range of our designer wedding dresses and made-to-order wedding gowns.
Factors that Affect the Cost of Wedding Dresses at Bluebell Bridal
It’s essential first to understand the factors that can affect the cost of wedding dresses as those will give insight into the price range. The following are some essential factors that influence the cost of wedding dresses and how prices vary from bridal designer to bridal designer.
Fabric and Material
The type of fabric and material used to make a wedding dress plays a significant role in determining its cost. The more intricate and luxurious the material, the higher the price. Materials such as silk, lace, and beaded fabrics are usually the most expensive due to their exquisite quality.
Many of our established and reputable designers charge more for their designs, because the quality of their product, is simply better. We know that our designers search vigorously for unique and exotic fabrics to craft their collections and create unique pieces that become high demand, through their innovation and sublime fit.
Style and Design
The style and design of a wedding dress can also affect its cost. It takes many hours to create a gown. Dresses with extensive handwork, intricate beading, or embroidery take more time and effort to create, which, in turn, increases the cost. Dresses that are simple or have minimum details can also be very complex in terms of structure and design, so less embellished gowns can vary from cost effective to more extravagantly priced.
Some of our salon designers offer brides the chance to customise their wedding gown. If you love a style but need a customisation to make it your dream gown ask your stylist if this is possible. Some designers will allow you to add or change sleeves, raise necklines, raise or lower a split and add buttons etc. This is just a few things you can do to customise your gown. Additional fees will be payable as it requires additional time and effort from the designer.
Our gowns are made to order, which means they are not made to your exact measurements and proportions. It also means that alterations are nearly always needed to ensure the perfect fit. The cost of alterations is in addition to the purchase price of your gown. Bluebell Bridal offers an in-house alterations service of distinction. If you have your gown altered at Bluebell Bridal ( subject to availability) all sewing takes place on our premises by Emily and Mark – our industry’s finest.
