Wedding Gown - Make To Measure Or Off The Rack?

Recommended Posts

plantom? sounds like plankton.. hmmm.. suddenly i've been banished to the lowest echelon of the food chain.. lol..

For ladies who are slightly on the plus side and have a pretty full bust, can consider a Princess Cut for the wedding gown, it helps to accentuate the bust area and the bustier and cutting actually makes the waist look smaller.

check out with your BS coordinator for more details.

For "bye bye flabby" arms.. avoid having anything to cover the the shoulders and arms.. the more you cover.. the more ppl notice..

cheers

hahaha paisay paisay.... Phantom :jawdrop: .. when i typing its was almost mid nite zombie hehee..

indeed u expert. dun cover flabby arms ah argh...

wat is princess cut??

i oso chose OTR over MTM. in fact, i was really tempted to go for MTM for both my WG and EG.

i chose OTR coz i found 1 WG and 1 EG that is suitable for me... and if i MTM, i might not know if the end product will fit me like a glove anot.

there's a gal who selects the gown same time as me. she MTM both her WG and EG. i find both looks normal and ppl cant tell it is MTM. the impt thing is her WG doesnt turn out exactly as wat she expected. although the coordinator had warned her the possible outcome of the design and material used, she still decided to go ahead with dat design. no choice she had to use dat coz once the gown is being MTM, u cannot change ur choice.

Ladyluck, maybe u can browse through the OTR gowns and if there are gowns which u like, u can consider OTR. Keep your options open! :jawdrop:

today one of my fren say at times those OTR is actually not new but the co ordinator may bluff u tat its new arrival , and most of the bs will some how try to discourage bride to choose MTM over OTR :P

LadyLuck, I am also a OTR bride.. Like diva, I am also pretty fickle minded.. I prefer to see the real thing than what is drawn paper.. lousy in imagination.. hehe.. But i nv regret.. some ppl thought that my gown is MTM, because quite alot of details...

Unless you really have very clear in mind that you want a particular design, else try OTR first.. OTR gowns also can do add on.. some BS will do it FOC some will charge, but it should be still cheaper than doing a full MTM.

Must really know what your BS is good at. See they have the type of gowns you wanted. Like my BS, actually have limited EGs. Already have mind prepared might need to MTM. End up manage to choose one.

If MTM and cannt take back the gown, it will eventually end up another ppl's OTR. Only difference that you get to wear it first.

:D

yalar, good point!!, others too will have the chance to wear the same too.

Im a MTM Bride.. for both my gowns.. the designs has been drawn, now making and waiting for fitting in Feb..... Do hope the gown turn out well for me.

I choose MTM cos I kind of have an idea what suits me and what I want.

all the best !

for me im clueless... and im not tall & slim :jawdrop:

Whether OTR is new or not new.. I believe is pretty easy to check it out. if is not new confirm will look yellowish or look old or outdated design. so far i nv come across BS that discourage bride to choose MTM over OTR. mostly like prompt me to choose MTM instead.. :P

it is all abt your mind.. OTR gowns, see ppl wear before or after, buey song.. MTM gowns, after that see ppl wear also buey song.. if really that buey song.. buy back all the gowns lor.. but then again i got this friend who told me, she saw 2 smiliar gown design at 2 different BS. Dont know who copy who. :lol:

LL, usually BS will encourage to MTM bcos MTM is more expensive than OTR. whether MTM or OTR its ok as long as u must feel comfortable wearing with e gowns eventually. :dancingqueen:

gowns can only be altered if the growns are too loose. if the gowns are too tight then cannot alter liao bcos not enough cloth to do so. !!

the gowns only wear for one night so no point pay extra for MTM if can find nice ones OTR. spending so much time, money and effort to prepare a wedding which only last for one day/night. sigh. :(

Yup.. I also think they have a way to alter the gowns to be slightly bigger.. And I thought some BS offered a package with a choice of OTR or MTM gowns with no additional charges? :notti:

But Korea was saying that as long as MTM, need to top up $$?? :jawdrop:

provided only alter slightly looser. if want alter a lot looser then should have problem. also must provided the gown has enough extra cloth to be loosen. :)

usually, MTM packages are slightly more expensive (the extra charges have already included in the packages liao) than OTR packages. :)

traditionally speaking, MTM is always more expensive than OTR. :)

check with you ladies,

tomorrow im going down to bs for trying gowns already. so excited....

my Actual day is in June 08. and im target to lost around 6kilos off my weight by then.

During final fitting around mid May08, will the BS able to alter for me in time?

if happen to choose MTM over Off the rack. Although e BS is nearby my home, im only able to go down during weekend, due to my works.

im fat & short, chances for me to choose from Off the Rack is limited. i understand they have super long gown...

if happen to find one Off the Rack tat suit me, can i ask the BS to make about the same using same material but modify a little of the design, isit possible?

on the other hand, im afraid different tailor maker may vary cutting and workmanship vary too :(

frankly speaking, we also spent quite a lot for our wedding. hehe. but SOMETIMES think back again then feel not worth for just one night/day. but SOMETIMES think again and still worth it. dilemma. hehe. :sport-smiley-004:

end of the day, what make you feel good is complimentary from your guests. then you'll feel everything is worth it lor. this is how i feel myself when our guests complimented about our wedding. :dancingqueen:

Ladyluck..dun worry too much take your time. gowns too long they can alter. i am short and partically only the size of a pri 6 gal. but they still have gowns available for me to wear.

i took a couple of trips before deciding on which one fits me. btw its best if you take a picture of the gown u are wearing (do it discreetly thou) so that you can go home and decide. !!

i wish i can take pix too but the coordinator were super sticky ...
