We love how beautiful fall is in Michigan, with all the lovely nature colors! We love it even more because Brides & Tailor just won the Global Wedding award of “ The Most Innovative Bridal Shop in Michigan 2018” by the prestigious Lux Life Magazine which showcases the brightest and best from across the wedding industry.
Every day, many established businesses such as wedding dress providers, venues, florists and other bridal service businesses create unique experiences that their clients will treasure forever, and this is what this award recognizes. Earlier in the year 2018, we have been happy for the news that we have been nominated for this award, and now that the awards have been given, it is great to know that we were among this year’s winners!
We would love to take this opportunity to thank all of our past brides who have been sharing their great experience with Brides & Tailor. We aim to create a personalized experience for each and every bride who chooses to have a custom made wedding dress and we promise we’ll continue with it!
Now that you got engaged and have started the search for the perfect dream wedding dress, you should definitely be prepared for the big question:
Why are boutique wedding dresses this expensive?
It’s obvious that wedding dress businesses exploit the idea of getting married ( hopefully once !) to make a bride feel okay about buying a bridal gown that retails for thousands of dollars. Brides & Tailor is the pioneer in reversing this idea since 2010. It all started when the owner realized that no…there should be a way to give those brides a big happy smile as the walk down the aisle without getting bankrupt.
So what makes the local wedding dresses this expensive? Read all those markups that are added by local boutiques to make their businesses profitable.
We know how hard it is for Hijabi bride-to-be’s to find their perfect Hijab wedding dress sometimes, so in those few lines, Brides & Tailor will give you a few tips that you have to keep in mind before picking your wedding dress.
1. Make sure that you know your body shape.
In order to wear a wedding dress that looks flattering and comfortable, make sure you know your exact body shape. Our bridal advisor offers free advice on what suits you best in our Michigan Showroom, and you can even request help online. We provide this as a complementary service because we want you to look and feel your best!
2.Don’t pick very heavy wedding dress material.
Since you will be wearing a Hijab on your wedding day, you need to make sure that your overall wedding dress doesn’t restrict your movement or make you feel uncomfortable. Choose designs that are not too heavy and that are breathable. You will also need to be able to move your arms freely while moving since the sleeves will be long, so make sure you pick the most comfortable style possible.
3.Plan your Hijab look in advance.
One of the most important aspects of your Hijab Wedding Dress is the Hijab itself. Make sure that you know what Hijab style is suitable for your face, and if possible, try to get help from a Hijab Stylist who will be able to use your bridal veil to wrap it in a very flattering style that goes well along your face shape and the bridal look. Make sure you check our Brides & Tailor’s Hijab Look below for inspiration! You can even use bridal turbans to create a very elegant look
4.Make sure you know that you’ve got options.
Don’t opt for any design and just settle down for any wedding dress with an add-in jacket. Jackets usually give Hijabi Brides a bulky look. With Brides & Tailor, you can pick any bridal dress design, ask us to add long sleeves and to cover the neckline. There is nothing easier than our custom made wedding dresses.
