5 Reasons to Hire a Fashion Designer for Your Wedding

A fashion designer may not be something you’d think you need for a wedding, but they are an important asset to consider. For brides that need to have their wedding to be trendy and up-to-date, a fashion designer is a good investment to make. The fashion designer can work with the wedding planner to coordinate décor with attire to match colors and themes perfectly.

Up-to-Date on Trends

Fashion designers need to stay up-to-date on the latest trends in fashion, which includes wedding fashion. Their expertise can help you choose the right dress for the time of year, trend and theme that you want for your wedding. The designer can also offer tips as far as dress styles based upon the body types of you and the bridal party.

Options for Designer Knock-Offs

If you do not have the budget for a designer wedding dress, accessories or shoes, the fashion designer can help steer you in the right direction. For instance, if you are planning an International wedding, a large budget may not be available for attire. To match your designer attire to a venue, this website can give you some ideas as far as architecture, atmosphere and scenery are concerned.  When planning a beach wedding, consider a designer beach-themed knock-off dress to save a few dollars.

Coordinate Bridal Party Attire

A matching bridal party, from head to toe, is achievable with the help of a fashion designer. The designer will help the group select a bridesmaid dress that works for all of the bridesmaid’s body types and one that also matches the overall theme of the wedding. The only dress in the bridal party, other than the bride, that should have a variation of the other bridesmaids is the maid of honor. Her dress can be a little fancier.

Picking the Right Shoes

Shoes have to be comfortable but also need to be formal enough for the occasion. With the help of a fashion designer, your bridal party can have ceremony-appropriate shoes and reception-appropriate shoes. The bridal party needs to have comfortable shoes to dance, walk and mingle with guests. All shoes should be the same style as well.


Accessories are something that is usually left up to the bridal party and most neglect to coordinate. Consider asking the designer to assist with selecting a matching set of accessories for the entire bridal party to wear. It will make for beautiful photos and gives the bridal party something to keep as a memory of the event every time the accessories are worn.

Fashion designers work hard to stay up-to-date on the ever-changing fashion trends. Upcoming seasonal trends can change a dozen times before the season even starts, and it is ideal to be kept aware of that so, that changes to attire can be made accordingly. It is ideal to hire a fashion designer that works well with your personality so that you can communicate easily with each other to prevent tension and color or design ideas not translating properly.
