My daughter is getting married and wants me to make her dress. I've seen the offerings from the big four and Neue Mode. I've also seen wedding patterns.com. Is there another source for wedding dress patterns?

Congratulations to your DD! Marfy has beautiful gowns. They have a catalog one can order and they have some of the catalogs' individual patterns to purchase on their site.

There is a huge selection of dress patterns available on Etsy - from vintage 1950s patterns to recent releases (and everything in-between). Here are the search results for wedding dress pattern and vintage wedding dress pattern.

What a special project this is! I hope you find the perfect pattern for your daughter's dress.

Other than those mentioned above, I found this one in my search for a dress http://www.bridalcoveredbuttons.co.uk/Pages/default.aspx

If she is slim, I also found japanese sewing wedding pattern books on ebay and etsy. These are not the up to date trendy styles that we have here in North America or Europe. Some have patterns and some you have to draft up.

If she wants a trendy style, it will be a challenge. If she wants vintage or retro style, there are hundreds of patterns out there on etsy and ebay.

Edited to add:
Forgot this one, Leko Bridal Fashion on cd from sewingpatterns.com

Also depending on what she wants, you can possibly use formalwear or even just regular dress patterns

If she's looking fr something modern I think you'll have to go with evening gowns. The only newer styles for wedding gowns over the last few years were pleating and gathering on the bodice and upper side skirt. Sleeves or a hint of sleeve, and necklines more shaped instead of straight across strapless.There is a vintage 30's element going on right now:sheath or draped but close to the body and lots of bling. A custom wedding dress really gives the girl unlimited choice.I hope you both have great fun together.
