Bridal Alteration F.A.Q.

Bridal season is upon us once again! 

Before making an appointment to make your perfect dress even better, please keep in mind that an average gown alteration takes about two months. Depending on how well it fits you, it may take more time.  If you are having your gown dry cleaned, please have it done before you come in for alterations.  If the dry cleaner ruins the dress, you won't be out alteration costs. 

If you aren't sure you want us to alter your gown, please schedule an appointment for a consultation with Patty.  She will examine your gown, determine the needed alterations, and give you an estimate for price.  She will not pin until you have decided on us for alterations.

Most importantly, we ask that all brides acquire shoes and undergarments before fitting.  If you are unsure of a bra, buy several and leave the tags on. We'll help you decide on the best bust for your dress.  If you don't have shoes, we won't be able to hem your dress. It is vital to hem your dress with you wearing the correct shoes, because a half inch can mean all the difference.

Please limit yourself to two guests during your appointment.  We find that too many voices drown out a bride's opinion. We want your vision to come first.

Thank you for considering us!
