AlterationsAlterations are done by appointment only.
Alterations are not included in the purchase price of a garment.
Before alterations begin, the garment must be PAID IN FULL.
Brides should be sure to budget for the necessary alterations which generally run between $100 - $300.
Alterations may sometimes seem expensive, but a wedding gown should fit unlike any other garment. We recommend beginning the alterations process about two or three months before the wedding date.
Basic alterations can include: contouring the side seams, a hem, a bustle, and built in bra cups. Additional alterations offered can include: shortening the train, slimming the skirt, changing the neckline, adding sleeves, lowering the back, adding/taking away buttons and the list goes on.
Of course, every bride is a case by case situation and the bride is only charged for the services the dress will need. This time frame also allows time for dry-cleaning, if needed, as well as any last-minute changes needed due to weight fluctuation.
