Bluejade is more than simply a wedding dressmaker
What is the difference between a wedding dressmaker and a wedding dress designer?
A wedding dressmaker usually just follows a dress pattern and uses basic sewing skills to replicate a customer’s design. This can often lead to results that do not fit the individual perfectly.
On the other hand, a wedding dress designer works closely with the bride to design a dress that is exclusive to her. A designer will usually take your measurements and body type into consideration and design a dress that is perfectly suited to you. This creates a much more striking effect as it moulds the dress specifically to your body, rather than trying to mould your body to the dress!
Choosing your wedding dress design
Bluejade can design a custom-made wedding dress for you based on your unique figure and preferences. We will design a stunning piece that fits you just right, integrating your preferences of classic cuts, contemporary styles, or a combination of both.
Bluejade uses only the finest material with gorgeous adornments such as handmade handmade material flowers, crystals and custom-design buttons to highlight your unique elegance and exclusive style.
Before deciding on a wedding dress design, it is recommended that you try on as many different gowns as possible. Different wedding dress styles include the ball gown, empire line, A-line, bias cut, sheath and fishtail. Take photos of yourself in each dress you try and keep a scrapbook of images you may find. From here, you will start to get a clear picture about which wedding dresses best suit your figure, preferences and personality.
If you need any advice at all when deciding the style and design, don’t hesitate to contact Bluejade to discuss anything at all. We will outline all details you require, from advice about how to flatter every different body types and design tips.

Wedding dressmaking process
After you have decided on your design, the wedding dressmaking process begins. A custom design wedding dress requires a minimum of 4 fittings to make sure the dress fits perfectly and will require a lead time of at least 16 weeks. During the first consultation, we will discuss your design preferences and take your measurements.
Bluejade will then mock up a design using a trial material called calico to make sure you are happy with the measurements and design. Using the calico pattern as a model, we can make adjustments to the dresses design. You may want to make tweaks to the shape, the neckline, the sleeves, the length, the waist height, etc.
Once the design and measurements are finalized, it is time to cut into the fabric and the dress starts to take form! We usually require you to come in for 2 more fittings to ensure the dress fits perfectly and you are happy with all the details.
We work closely with you to make sure your beautiful dress is delivered on time and is of the highest quality.
