We've all heard of the term haute couture, but what does it really mean in fashion? The literal translation from French to English is 'high dressmaking' or 'high sewing'; however, there's much more to it than this. The term is commonly used to refer to custom, made-to-order garments, emphasizing the artisanal expertise and skills in the fashion world. Today, we intend to explore this concept of 'Haute Couture' and how it relates to our work and craftsmanship at Dream Dresses by P.M.N.
There are a lot of things to consider when wedding planning, such as the wedding theme, the decor, the outfits, the food, and most importantly, where your wedding will take place. Nowadays, weddings can be hosted practically anywhere, from the beach, to a quaint chapel, and even on top of a cliffside mountain. Before you can book a venue or schedule dates, you will need to consider whether you want your wedding ceremony, and after-party, to be held indoors or outdoors.
Your wedding reception, or after party, should be the perfect time for you to mingle with your guests, let your hair down on the dance floor, and have your magical first dance with your significant other. More and more brides are choosing to wear a separate gown to their wedding dress, specifically chosen for their after party! Reception gowns often differ from the bride's original wedding dress, and can feature a shorter hemline, bursts of color, and a dash of sparkle.
Like your wedding dress, your bridal veil is just as special and important, and is a fabulous way of achieving a certain look, whether that be glamorous, Hollywood style, or classic and sophisticated. A veil has the power to completely change, elevate and complement a bridal aesthetic, while adding an extra layer of elegance and luxury. Choosing the right veil style, design and length can be a challenge in itself, as it is so difficult to know which veil goes best with which silhouette and dress style.
The process of creating, designing and making custom and bespoke wedding gowns can be intimidating and confusing, especially if you are unfamiliar with the steps and stages. Today, we will be demystifying any confusion surrounding this topic, and our gorgeous designer and founder, Phuong, will answer all of your burning questions in this post!
