What is the difference between Made to Order / made to measure wedding dress and A Custom Bespoke Wedding Dress? Our semi-custom wedding dress design process is quite different than our Bespoke Custom Wedding Dress Design process where we create a custom dress from a client’s specific ideas, from scratch. With our made to order design process, you will take a look at our Made to Order Wedding dress designs from our collections that we have listed online for you to choose from. You can make certain design customizations to our designs to make our designs, YOUR OWN! Our made to order dress design process is much less hands on than our full customization process for custom wedding dresses. It is much more of a simpler process from choosing certain design selections that are offered on our online semi-custom shop. Our made to order wedding dresses can be made to your custom body measurements and your design modifications.

  • Semi-Custom designs / made to order wedding dresses: Make Modifications to our pre-existing designs from the Shop A.Cherie collections we have created and alter specific design elements based on your own personal style preferences, without customizing every detail of the design. Made to order dress will be made to the client’s custom body measurements provided by the client. Less hands on than our Bespoke Experience.
  • Bespoke / Custom Design: Bespoke means fully custom-made. Made based on the specifications of the client ordering the dress design down to their last requested detail. Much more hands on. Work hand in hand with our custom dress designers and design team through out the making of your dress design. In person fitting appointments and custom design sketches.

All about Made to Order semi-custom wedding dresses / Made to Measure Wedding Dresses

Affordable Custom Wedding Dresses Online | Made to Measure Wedding Dresses

While brick-and-mortar bridal boutiques carry some advantages (like letting brides touch and feel gown options, free champagne, and service of in-person sales people that sometimes may be a little pushy), Shop A.Cherie’s online process provides brides a better experience along each of these areas:

-Unlimited design options: through semi-custom designs or choosing the Bespoke process. Brides aren’t stuck with the limited inventory of a store since we focus on made to order items as well as not being able to “alter the design” in a store.
Lower prices: We have direct relationships with manufacturers that help our client now save more money without a lot of overhead of stock items.
Inclusive sizes and better fit: Shop A.Cherie’s custom dresses are made-to-order for each bride using our exclusive measurement guide, the same guide we use in our full customization process!

Our biggest advantage is that we can allow ourselves to create custom dresses the way our brides dream of. We can customize any part of any dress, change colors, add layers of fabrics, remove unnecessary parts or add detachable details upon the client’s request. We never charge extra for the size customization, so that every bride can get herself a beautiful wedding dress that was made just for her!

Other considerations: While shopping for dresses, make sure you understand that if you do buy an off the rack dress, be prepared to spend $500+ on alterations and on top of the price tag for the designer label. Why not go semi-custom and have it made just the way you want it to your measurements?

We also know it’s important to hear about the experience straight from brides and past clients. You can see our reviews on  WeddingWireThe Knot, and Google! If you have hesitations or questions, ask us! We love being direct and honest with brides, and only want you to move forward with us when you’re comfortable.

We offer made to measure services for our semi-custom dress designs or the option of ordering a standard US sizing. Made to custom measurements is recommended over standard US sizing to achieve a better fit.

1. Custom Measurements-The customer has the option of entering detailed body measurements instead of her standard size to make sure that the dress will fit very well. The measurements guide will be sent to to the client and it is HIGHLY recommended to take the measurement sheet to a professional tailor or seamstress in your area. A.Cherie Couture is not responsible for ill fit if the measurements provided are not correct. The bride needs to understand the measurements before visiting a tailor to make sure it’s all taken correctly. Please contact us with questions.

2. Three-step-verification process: Once the client sends their measurements, we first make sure that the different body measurements are rational in relation to the other measurements. Following this, we make sure that the pattern is created to the proper measurements and  that the fabric is cut correctly to the size needed after creating the dress patterns on the computer. The third step at the end of the process is that our quality control team measures the final dress product to match it with the size given and make sure the dress is ready for shipping. We make sure that the size is exactly your measurements given to us, and that way there will be no questions about the fit after quality control checking the garments. Pictures are taken of the measurements on the gown.

3. Measurement Fluctuations: In case the client’s weight fluctuates, we always recommend creating lace-up at the back instead of a zipper since this can accommodate a variety of sizes. We also create extra material in the seam allowances incase the dress needs to be slightly let out or taken in. Most of our  gowns require minimal alterations as long as the client stays the same to the measurements provided / provided the correct measurements.

Made to Order Wedding dress designs: take pre-existing designs we have created and alters specific design elements based on your own personal style preferences, without customizing every detail of the design. Made to measurements or Standard sizing
Bespoke / Custom Design: Bespoke means fully custom-made. Made based on the specifications of the client ordering the design down to their last requested detail. Very hands on and Client involved process. Made to custom client measurements only.

As with any wedding dress, some minor alterations might be necessary to achieve the perfect fit. Brides living out of state can use the services of a local professional tailor/seamstress near them if any minor changes are required on the dress on their own expense.

All dresses do NOT come with bustles.

We do offer dress alterations services  as well as in person fittings for an additional costs for our semi-custom dress collections.
