BRIDALWEAR ALTERATIONS

WEDDING GOWN ALTERATIONS

Many wedding gowns will need some form of alteration in order for you to have that ‘perfect fit’ on the day.

It will help you to get that done without adding to your ‘stress’, if you remember the following tips:

  • Timing is vital - Give yourself time to get it right for the day. Too early and it may not fit on the day (you may gain or lose weight after it is done)
    Bring it in too late and you will be in rush – But don’t panic -
    we will always come to your rescue! No bride has ever left us unhappy.
  • Shoes/Undergarments/ Accessories – bring in your shoes or some of the same
    height – you don’t want to trip up on the day!
    Wearing your undergarments and accessories will give us your
    ‘total’ look when deciding on the alterations necessary
  • Bridesmaids - Help them to organise their own appointment – they can come
    at times to suit them.
  • What alterations can we do? – We can do any alteration needed to make your
    gown fit and we have the years of experience to know what is
    needed, even with the most complex designs. We can work with
    any fabric and can alter dresses to fit different sizes –it is always
    better to buy a dress that is too big rather than too small to give
    more options.
