Triangle brides with a vision choose custom gowns

You are a bride to be going to your first wedding dress consultation. You drive to a studio, sit down to talk with the designer and then leave, all without trying on or even looking at a single dress.

Gown designers are masters of design, custom tailoring and sewing. They build one of a kind pieces that capture the spirit of a bride who isn’t wowed by the selections in stores or who might have a specific look in mind.

Cordella, owner and designer at in Raleigh, says she loves consulting with brides and guiding them through every step of the process.

« Every woman is beautiful, » Cordella says. « I work to make my clients dresses that fit them and make them feel beautiful. I’m always fine tuning a gown. I ask, ‘Are we done?’ instead of stating, ‘We are done.’ I think this is one of the ways working with me is different than buying your dress from a large retailer. »

She doesn’t see herself as part of the bridal industry because she doesn’t build trendy pieces or gather inspiration from top designers. « The brides that hire me can’t find what they want in a store, » Camper says. « They either have an unusual figure or an unusual sense of style. »

Custom gowns can take up to six months or longer to finish. The process includes concept design, sketching, pattern making, multiple consultations and fittings up to the wedding day. Camper and Cordella recommend that brides contemplating custom gowns contact a designer as early as possible. Camper focuses on one custom gown at a time, and usually will only complete one per season. Cordella tackles six to 10 custom gowns a year, on top of gown modifications and alteration projects that she either oversees or completes herself.
