The Pros & Cons of Couture Wedding Dresses

If you've dreamed of walking down the aisle in one of your favorite couture wedding dresses, it's worth seriously considering turning your dream into a reality. After all, you probably don't plan to walk down the aisle again, so it may be worth splurging on a gown that makes you feel like a princess!



The pros of Couture Wedding dresses:

Quality
When you purchase a couture dress, you can expect it to be crafted out of high quality materials including the finest lace, silk and beads. While you may be able to find a similar looking dress that is cheaper, the craftsmanship won't be the same. Remember, there's no point ordering a dress with exquisite lace detailing if the lace is cheap and tacky.


VIP experience
When you shop for couture dress you'll feel like a VIP as the staff will do everything they can to make your fitting special. Not only do shops and boutiques who sell couture wedding dresses offer larger more comfortable dressing rooms but they often treat customers to free glasses of champagne and finger food.


 

No regret
If you splurge on your dream dress you'll have no regrets. After all, there is nothing worse than looking back at photos from your wedding and wishing that you'd spent a little more to walk down the aisle in your dream dress.


Can be kept as a family heirloom
If you purchase a couture dress it will still be in perfect condition in twenty or thirty years' time. A couture dress would also make the perfect family heirloom and would be a lovely gift to pass on to a daughter, niece or god daughter one day.


Unique styles
If you splurge on a couture dress you'll be able to wear a design that's both timeless and fresh. After all, you don't want to walk down the aisle in a cheaper dress, that you're not in love with and that every girl in town will be wearing on their wedding day.


 The Cons of Couture Wedding Dresses:

The Price
There's no doubt that couture wedding dresses are significantly more expensive than regular wedding dresses. However, if you can only afford to splash out on a couture garment once, it's sensible to splash out on your wedding dress as your wedding will be one of the most important days of your life.


Timeframe
Depending on the brand or model of dress you're interested in you may need to book your fitting well in advance, in case your dress takes a few weeks or months to be shipped to you. While you can buy cheaper bridal dresses off the rack, couture dresses are normally only available in a limited number and need to be ordered well in advance.

 

So if you've got your heart set on a Romona Keveza gown or a Vera Wang gown, don't let others put you off or tell you that it's too expensive. A couture dress is worth every penny! After all, your wedding is your special day and you deserve to walk down in the aisle in the dress of your dreams. So what are you waiting for? The sooner you book a fitting the sooner you'll be able to try on as many couture wedding dresses as you'd like! Start your search here...
