Referrals from friends and family are great because if they have had experience with one you can see photos of their dress or will have remembered their wedding dress when you attended their wedding.

The internet, now almost every reputable company has a website of some sort online and that includes dressmakers. Search online but be careful and make sure that you read reviews. If you do contact one ask them if they have a portfolio or any garments they can show which they have made before choosing them to make the wedding dress for one of the biggest days of your life.
Quality Bridal Fabric Shops, For those selling high end bridal fabric they may well have connections to quality dress makers as part of their services. You should check with them to see if they can recommend anyone who is connected to them as in most cases these will be dressmakers who hold a vast amount of experience in regards to making wedding dresses.
When you find a dress maker it is important that you get an approximated cost and what this includes as some will charge extra for the adding of appliqué, buttons, zippers and crystal embellishments. Ensure that you set a deadline with your dressmaker for when the wedding dress needs to be completed and if possible try and make this date a good few weeks before your actual wedding date.
After you have set your deadline date ensure that you keep your diary free so that you can attend any fittings that you will be required for. Holding off dress fittings will simply lengthen the time it takes to make the dress as the dressmaker needs to ensure that the wedding dress fits before they can continue in the creation of it.
