This summer love is in the air with brides racing to the altar after more than a year of necessary shut downs to fight the COVID19 health crisis. For many brides, the extra time during lockdown allowed them to reflect on what they actually wanted to experience on their wedding day. The Pandemic has emphasized what really matters in life and how short life can be. As a result, Brides and Grooms want to make sure they look fabulous for their nuptials. Custom wedding dresses and bespoke men’s suits are popular with brides and grooms wanting the perfect fit that reflects their unique personality and taste.
Bridal designer and tastemaker Mychael Darwin of Mychael Darwin Bridal has seen an exponential increase in brides wanting custom gowns. “Brides want to be a part of the process and they want to have a say in the design, the fabrics and the overall experience,” said Mychael Darwin. One of the benefits of having a custom dress is that you can ensure it is truly a one-of-a-kind wedding gown. No one else is going to have the same dress as you when you design it yourself. You also have bragging rights to say you designed your dress and had a custom couture wedding dress.
If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that life is fragile and that relationships and love are what matters most especially when your health is at risk. Life is love. And True love is life.
