How to Choose Your Wedding Designer

Isn’t it all about the dress?

It takes an eye that truly sees beauty to detect the perfect design for a wedding gown. But it doesn’t matter what style of dress you go for, no matter how simple or complex the design is, unless you land yourself a designer that can bring your design to life. 

If you wish, we would like to alert you to some points that certainly will help you choose your designer.

1- Reputation matters:

Choose a well-known designer for their reputation if you got the means because frankly speaking, sometimes it’s hard to have the patience to take a chance on someone new if you haven’t already seen their work. However, the modern world is great in that it allows you to check for reviews, ratings, and comments on various professionals. 

2- Get to know the person:

Then comes the designer’s personality, which will affect you over long months of your life. Your designer should be a good listener and communicator. They need to be dedicated and honest with you each step of the way. Creativity and attention to details are obviously a must and punctuality is essential.

3- Remember the first impression:

Take into consideration how the designer reacted to your first approach because this is a reflection of how much they value and cherish their clients. It’s important that your designer be as concerned with your work as you are. You have to look out for designers who don’t respond back, follow up, and communicate efficiently with their clients. 

4- Prepare a contract:

Don’t underestimate a well-written contract or agreement with your designer. This will set the tone to all that comes next. You need a proper contract with a detailed payment strategy and a cancellation policy, all with a clear timeframe and delivery date. A lot of people tend to skip this crucial step and then regret it later when something goes bad. 

5- Rely on word of mouth:

Word of mouth is a thing that you can definitely count on when choosing your designer. Ask your designer’s clients things like “What is he/she known for?” “Does he/she over-promise without necessarily delivering?” “Is he/she reasonable when it comes to time and budget?” and so on and so forth.
