Have you ever wanted to look like a princess? Ever since seeing Princess Diaries and Beauty and the Beast as a little girl, I’ve always wanted to live out my own princess fairytale. Growing up, I did a lot of theatre shows and pageants where I got to dress up in ball gowns and dresses and it was so much fun. I always had a dream of working with a brand one day to create and design my own fairytale dress. I had the opportunity recently to work with Design Formal and design my own princess ball gown. I wanted to share what my experience was like working with them along with some pictures of this gorgeous custom gown.
This gorgeous evening dress has the perfect fit. When working with Design Formal’s design team they take everything into account to make sure that the fit is perfect. They got my exact measurements for the dress along with details on how I wanted the dress to fit. When emailing back and forth with their design team they asked me specific questions about how I wanted the bodice to fit and the full dress as well. I was also able to send along photos and explain the look I was going for. This dress definitely fits me perfectly and has the most gorgeous floral details on the bodice.
Working with the Design Team
If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to design your own wedding dress and work with a design team, I’m here to share what it’s like. Tansy was my designer and she was absolutely amazing! She did not miss any details and was very fast at communicating with me. She sent me some sample pictures of material she was thinking of using after I sent her photos and explained the kind of dress I was going for. They have several gowns they design on their website and you can get ideas from those as well and send them those photos as well. Tansy also helped me with the direction that I wanted to go with the dress. I wanted a bodice that had a sweetheart neckline, but was still modest. Tansy helped me achieve this goal with the dress and did an amazing job with capturing the design.
I am so incredibly happy with my dress and love the way it turned out. It was exactly what I wanted. I was going for a similar style dress to the one Anne Hathaway wears in Princess Diaries 2 and I definitely was able to achieve that goal. I am so grateful I got to work with Design Formal and their team and loved the opportunity to be able to design my own dress. If you’re looking for something different for your wedding and have ever wondered what designing a dress would be like, I highly recommend checking out Design Formal to help you design your dress. They have an excellent team and truly accomplished the design I was going for. See all of my photos in this post and feel free to leave a comment with any questions about my dress and designing this dress. I am so excited to wear this dress and cannot wait to design another dress with Design Formal.
