It is definitely important to always ask questions throughout the process, particularly if you don’t understand something and this makes everything transparent leaving no areas of miscommunication.
If it so happens that the changes a bride may like to make are too far outside their budget, then it’s a great idea to get the opinion of the designer on other fabrics or design choices that can be made, but that will still give a similar look. Communication is extremely important throughout the whole process.
Ultimately, having a gown made from scratch can be a lengthy process and Vincenzo recommends that brides begin having their dress made ideally six to eight-months before the wedding. Of course if this is not possible, he can definitely work within a shorter timeline but this would depend on the detail of the gown and his schedule of workload for the month that the dress is due.
One last tip is to always tell the designer from the very first fitting if the plan is to lose weight, as the designer will take this into consideration when making the gown. In this situation a bride may need a few extra fittings to ensure that the dress is fitting accordingly.
If you so happen to lose a lot of weight or gain a lot of weight just before your final fitting, there is a chance that the price of the dress will increase as the dressmaker will have to make major alterations last minute. This includes unpicking already finished work which is very tedious and time consuming. But it’s also very important to have trust in your designer’s ability of over 24 years of experience. Trusting the professional will add an ease to the process on your end. Naturally some may find it difficult to allow another person to have creative control, however remember that you are dealing with a professional so you have every reason to trust their opinion and technical experience. What Vincenzo Pintaudi often delivers exceeds all expectations.
Vincenzo makes the whole process fun, professional, creative and a very personal experience. Like most creative projects it can organically evolve, so be open minded and prepared for change. He absolutely assures that as long as you enter into the experience open-minded he assures to create a gown that fits you like a glove and enhances your best features.
