  1. Do you have any inspiration you want to share? My example: I designed one of my favorite gowns for a bride a year before and I loved the net and the sheer corset with lace, it was sexy without being too much so I incorporated that with my gown design. 
  2. No matter what dress you decide to wear, first, think about this: what do you always want to feel to explain your overall love story and how you felt on your wedding day? My example: I wanted to be a modern day Cinderella on my wedding day. WHY: My husband came into my life at a time when I was down and didn’t feel like the person I could be, but he saw in me something beautiful and worthy of love and the best of life and he wanted to give that to me. So my desire was to look and feel like the woman worthy of all that love and I wanted my dress and how I looked to reflect that so his friends and family KNEW how he felt about me and I about him. 
  3. Design elements you love? My example: corsets, flowy, two piece or detachable skirt 
  4. Figure assets you love? My example: shoulders, my face and smile,  my skin color and softness
  5. Fabrics you love? My example: matte satin or Mikado, lace, tulle, organza, net 
  6. Textures and feel? My example: flowy, sheer, soft, beading but not scratchy, net and lace 
  7. What kind of wedding and reception do you want to have? My example: church ceremony, city hall reception, dancing, easy to walk in, no long train
  8. What are your artner’s desires? My example: kiss my shoulder, want to feel proud to marry me in a church, in front of our families, strict christian families, want him to see me as pretty, feminine and like he really chose a beautiful bride 
  9. What is your entire bridal attire and accessories budget?
  10. Any plans for your gown AFTER the wedding? My example: quality is important to me. I didn’t want a cheaply made gown, i wanted something that would be in great condition in 20 years, wouldn’t bust at the seams and was overall well made
  11. What are your color desires? My example: I chose off white bodice and lace with light blue underlay 
  12. Is there anyone to honor you would want to honor in the desire of your gown? My example: I wanted to honor my son who passed in 2012, blue for a baby boy.
