The term bespoke means made for a particular person or use. More and more we’re seeing the term bespoke when it comes to wedding details, from invitations to gifts and more. Let’s take a look at the top 8 bespoke wedding details couples are loving right now!
WHY THE TERM BESPOKE IS GROWING IN POPULARITY
Customization is king in this day and age. People are used to personalized products, selections, and service. Marry that with the growing desire in consumers for heirloom quality items and you have bespoke wedding details. This trend goes along with the growing popularity of old traditions and the revival of artisanal crafts common in previous generations. (For more on this, see our post about Grandmillienials.)
While the meaning is similar to custom or custom-made, the idea of bespoke speaks to the longevity and quality factor that couples identify with. The term is also more associated with British culture, which adds to the sense of refinement.

Of all the bespoke elements, the bespoke wedding gown is one of the most iconic. The handful of recent British royal weddings has impacted the wedding industry in the same way Princess Diana’s wedding did back in the 80s. More brides are now aware of the idea of a custom gown that tells the details of your history or even your love story. For example, Duchess Kate’s wedding dress was embroidered with meaningful flowers such as lily-of-the-valley for happiness and myrtle for love and marriage.
A growing number of bridal boutiques offer beautiful custom creations built to fit the bride’s personal style. Among the many benefits of this style of wedding dress shopping is that you’re ensured a perfectly tailored dress because it’s made to order.
5. Bespoke Wedding Veils
Similar to the bespoke wedding gown trend, wedding veils have risen in popularity. From important dates and names to patterns, a bespoke wedding veil is about more than fashion — it’s about adding meaning.
6. Bespoke Wedding Shoes
