Knitting machine questions

I am wanting to get a machine to make things like blankets,outfits, hats and so on. Can I do all of that with a machine? I also want to make my wedding dress . Is that possible? I also found dorm crochet lace patterns if I am able to knit them some how. Would I have to make small knit peaces and see them together or can I make the whole dress part at once? I am also wondering what punch cards are I keep seeing them in YouTube videos.would I need those?

We don’t have very many machine knitters here so it may take a while to get an answer to you questions.
The smaller projects are often done by machine. For a projects as complicated as the gorgeous wedding dress, I think that you need someone very experienced in machine knitting.
