Alteration Services

Alterations are available for your entire wedding party.  Please call for a consultation at no charge.  A quote for alterations cannot be given without seeing you in your gown.

It is my philosophy that preparations for your wedding should be a fun and positive experience.
 

Considerations for Alterations
 
wedding dress
  • Meet with seamstress 2-3 months before the wedding, if possible. Be certain you are able to listen to each other's ideas. 

  • Your wedding gown should not be altered by a family member or friend who 'sews a lot'.  Be certain the seamstress you choose has experience working on wedding gowns.

  • Undergarments can be the most difficult part of your fitting.  It is not the day to go au-naturel even if you are small-busted.  If you are unsure of the style necessary for you, meet with your seamstress first or buy several that are returnable.  Built in cups may be suitable for some small busted girls, but today's strapless dress usually requires a bra.  Remember, the bra is supposed to hold up your breasts, not the dress.  Petticoats and shoes are a must for fittings.  Again, large petticoats help support your gown--they are not just to add fullness.

  • The time to lose weight is NOT after you start your fittings.  You should expect to be charged an additional amount should your weight fluctuate.  Even a few pounds can make a difference on the custom fit you are trying to achieve.

  • A quote for alterations cannot be given without seeing the individual in the gown.  However, you should leave your first fitting with a clear understanding of what services will cost you.

  • You should expect your seamstress to be prepared for your appointments, the work be completed as scheduled and your gown pressed and ready to wear on the day you chose to pick it up.

It really means a lot to Michael and I that you are helping out."
