Getting your wedding gown altered is one of the most important parts of your wedding preparations.  You have put so much work into finding the right person, venue, menu, and cake why would you not put effort into making your gown fit perfectly?  When your gown arrives it most likely is not a perfect fit.  Do not panic! Almost everything can be fixed and made to be comfortable, secure, and most importantly look fabulous.  

  • What to bring to your appointment

Most wedding gowns will need some adjustment in length as well as a bustle.  It is important that you bring the shoes you will be wearing with your dress or at least a pair of shoes that are the same height as the shoes you will be wearing on your wedding day.  Also, bring any lingerie such as a strapless bra you will be wearing under the dress.  We may find that you need different lingerie or cups need to be installed in the dress but it is good to have a starting point.  When you finish with your fitting, you will be able to take your shoe and lingerie with you but please remember to bring it to the shop for subsequent fittings.

  • When to start the alterations process

Getting your alterations done early is always nice.  It decreases your stress and allows you to think about other last minute preparations.  On the other hand, if you tend to fluctuate in weight you do not want to have your dress altered 8 months in advance then lose 20lbs due to wedding stress.  A good timeline is to bring the dress in at least 2 months in advance so that we are done with the alterations a month before the ceremony.  Although this is ideal, we can still get your dress done if it is last minute, though last minute charges may apply if it must be done within 1 week.
