Design Your Own Wedding Dress Online

Do you know of a site where you can design your own wedding dress online? I am going to have something custom made but I want to see what it would look like all put together.
- Question from Reader, Janel F.

If you are looking for ideas for bridal gowns and especially if you are planning on sewing your own dress or having one custom made, a site where you can design your own wedding dress would be extremely helpful.

New sites are cropping up all the time that allow you to design and customize wedding dresses. Please contact me if you find a new one!

For example, a new company cropped up since I originally wrote this, called StyleShake.

I love the Wedding Dress Creator site because you can not only pick necklines, sleeves, etc, but they have several hair color and skin tone options too.

This one is a bridesmaid dress designer, but the dresses come in ivory and white and could be a really affordable wedding dress! Check out Bridesmaid Dress Designer from Coco Myles to play around with dress styles.

Other sites are good for browsing actual dress photos after you drill down your search features. You can search for silhouettes, necklines, sleeve type, designer and even price range and then view dresses that fit your search criteria. Sites like Bride Couture's Dress Gallery are sites you should be sure to browse along with the two big ones I'm sure you know about, the knot and of course the Wedding Channel's dress gallery section. While this isn't exactly letting you design your own wedding dress online you are still able to see very specific styles. The plus side is that you are viewing actual dresses.

The number one rule to remember if you are having something custom made or creating your own bridal gown is to actually try on a few dresses that are the most similar to what you'll be creating. Photo galleries are fine and dandy in the early stages but don't make any decisions until you actually try on a few.

It's your wedding, do it the way you want!
