How to Design Your Own Wedding Dress Online for Free

by Kristie Lorette

Before you start shopping for a wedding dress or meet with a wedding dress designer, you may first want to create your own wedding dress designs. This allows you to create the visions of wedding dresses you have in your head to see how they will look in reality. With online wedding dress design websites, you can even create a virtual you, so you can see how the dress will look while you’re wearing it.

Step 1

Go to a wedding dress creator website. Several websites are available online that allow you to design, create and model your wedding dress online for free. Some programs even allow you to create an avatar that looks like you so you can try the dress on in a virtual dressing room. Browse available dress design websites and decide which one you want to work with on creating your wedding dress.

Step 2

Create your avatar. Customize the virtual you to have the same hairstyle, hair color and skin tone so it matches yours.

Step 3

Pick the neckline for your dress. You may choose from a v-neck, scoop neck or asymmetric, as a few options.

Step 4

Choose the shape. Some options include A-line, empire waist, floor length, short, tea length, mermaid or sheath.

Step 5

Choose a sleeve style. Short, long, cap and strapless are a few options.

Step 6

Choose accessories. Choose the shoes, veil, necklace, earrings, wrap or sash that you may wish to add in order to accent the wedding dress.

Step 7

Print your wedding dress design. Once you have the design of your dress made and you have added all of your accessories, you can take the design to wedding dress shops or to the wedding gown seamstress you want to make your dress.
