Have you ever wondered why the leadtimes of wedding dresses are so long? We have had the question asked multiple times from our brides. We will be explaining the why in this blog post but also the reason why there can be such a difference in leadtimes between different designers and brands.
The creation of wedding dresses is a highly specialized skill. Unlike your everyday clothing wedding dresses are (usually) made to measure and fully tailored to your body measurements. And this is one of the main reasons why the leadtimes of wedding dresses can take so long. Making sure your wedding dress fits and hugs your body in all the right places is a skill on its own and much time is taken into account to make sure your wedding dress is made exactly in the right fit for you. For example, when you take two brides with the same body shape, let’s say a pear shape, the exact measurements and proportions of the brides do still differ.
Another reason for longer leadtimes is the handwork of embellishments and details. All designers do their best to make the most unique, most special and most amazing designs, and they do so by making fabrics by hand but also by combining different fabrics and hand sowing beads and lace details on the gowns. And that takes time.
Some designers take 9 months to create wedding dresses, other can do it within 8 weeks. We can imagine that brides ask themselves the question, why the difference.
It all has to do with how the designers have organized their production. On a general level we can make a distinction between two ways of creating and producing wedding dresses.
Many luxury and couture designers choose the create their wedding dresses by hand. All the reasons we listed for the Big Why in the previous paragraph are relevant to this type of production. A great benefit of hand made wedding dresses is that the gowns fit better and that brides can ask for customizations to their wedding dresses.
Wholesale production is where wedding dresses are made in larger factories, which enables designer to decrease their production costs, lower their prices and shorten the leadtimes.
At Keep Its Find Bridal we decided to only work with designers who make their wedding dresses by hand in their own atelier. This ensures quality, better fit, customization options for our brides and the most unique and special wedding dresses.
The leadtimes of the designers we work ranged from 4-7 months, depending on the designer.

Wedding dress Trunk Shows have many benefits for brides. Let us explain what they are, why they are organized and of course the important benefits.
Trunk Shows! You may have seen these words pop up on Instagram, bridal boutique websites or from fellow brides to be. The words ‘Trunk Shows’ themselves do not usually give an instant explanation of what a Trunk Show actually is. Let us explain, because these Trunk Shows are definitely worth visiting!
A Trunk Show is an event in a bridal boutique, where the whole new collection of a bridal designer is available for you to try on in the bridal boutique where the Trunk Show is being organized.
Best thing! Trunk Shows come with great discounts and offers.
Bridal boutiques often have a selection of dresses from a designer and almost never the whole collection. Boutiques choose those dresses, they feel, that fit their brides the best. Trunk Shows are a great way for the bridal boutique to show the whole collection of a designer to their brides.
And for brides it means they have more gowns to try on or see those specific gowns they love from a designer that the bridal boutique does not carry on a regular basis.
Trunk Shows are organized for a long-weekend or a whole week. The bridal boutique will have the exact dates on their websites/socials.
During a Trunk Show bridal boutiques usually offer 5-10% discount on the Trunk Show gowns and often times also on their accessories.
Because the whole new collection is in the showroom, you have more gowns to try on from your favorite designers.
Do you love a gown from a designer but the bridal boutique in your country does not carry it? During the Trunk Show you will have the chance to see your favorite gown. Is your favorite gown from a previous collection, check with the bridal boutique if they can ask the designer to ship that specific gown with the Trunk Show gowns as well.
Most bridal boutique offer great extra’s during the Trunk Shows. At Keep Its Find Bridal we always have delicious cocktails and gift bags with great bridal goodies to bring home with you.
We have some really exciting wedding dress Trunk Shows organized this year. You can check out which ones, their dates, discount information and which dresses will be there, on our website: See all our Trunk Shows

Which wedding dresses matches which bodytypes? A question almost every bride asks herself, and one we get asked quite often. We have written out the basics for you in this blog.
But first things first…
‘I never expected this dress to look so good on me’,
‘I actually thought I wanted a complete different wedding dress’,
‘I would have never chosen this wedding dress myself’.
Many brides have a specific vision of what types and shapes of wedding dresses would look good on them and their bodytypes. Sometimes they believe certain gowns are off limits for them. The interesting thing is that many brides also say yes to a complete different dress than they had in mind, and one they never would have picked out of the racks themselves.
The reasons for this are the following:
Therefore we advice each bride to try on different styles and specifically shapes of wedding dresses with their bodytypes, they might surprise you.
There are some basic guidelines to which wedding dresses match well with certain bodytypes. But as each and every body is different (even if they have the same global bodytype), definitely try on different shapes as well.
Everyone knows the traditional princess ballgown dresses. A fitted top with a big and voluminous skirt.
An A-line wedding dress also has a fitted top with a loose and bigger skirt. The difference with an ballgown is that the A-line shape has a more delicate and less poofy skirt. They follow the shape of an A.
A Flit & Flare wedding dress is a subtle version of the A-Line shape. The Fit & Flare has a longer fitted top and flares out at your hips.
A sheath wedding dress is completely fitted and figure hugging.
A fitted silhouette with a flared skirt below your knee. Yes, those are called the Mermaid and the Trumput. The Mermaid has a voluminous skirt, while the Trumput has a more subtile flair. A shape that has been created to really accentuate your curves.
We hope we have been able to give the info you need to start your wedding dress search. If you have any questions related to wedding dresses and bodytypes, send us an email and we are happy to help you out.
