bridal alterations text image
"I know how special every wedding is. I know how important it is to look your very best. A custom fit gown makes your confidence soar and lets your beauty shine! Every bride is unique and gowns are sold to fit a variety of sizes and tastes. I alter gowns with quality, elegance and excellence so that it's yours and only yours."
  Hem Length - The most common alteration to a wedding gown or bridesmaid gown is the hem. During your fitting (while wearing your chosen wedding shoes) the hem is pinned at the appropriate length. Hems are adjusted either at the waist or the floor depending on the construction, design and length of the adjustment. Depending on the number of layers, complexity and beading on the hem of your gown, 2 or more fitting appointments may be necessary.
  Bustles - Adding Bustles to a gown creates attachment points to gather the train of your gown to hang from the skirt, while you enjoy your reception, dancing and post ceremony events. Traditional Bustles attach the train on the outside of your gown making a beautiful layered look, while French Bustles attach to the inside or underneath the gown leaving the waist and hem line uninterrupted. Its fun to see your gown transform from the ceremony to the reception.
  Bodice / Strapless / Corset - A proper fitting bodice should leave you feeling secure and beautiful. A well fitted bodice can be achieved by using or adding bra cups, corseting, boning, and  making alteration adjustments at the waist and hips. Straps can be added as well and darts that will help prevent gaps and puckering at your bust line.
  Re-Styling - Re-styling can be done for a variety of purposes from changing the neckline, adding or removing sleeves, moving the entire waistline, creating corset lacing and even combining a vintage dress (your mother's perhaps) with a new gown. Re-styling, creates the look and style of your gown to reflect your personal tastes.
  Fitting / Pricing - The entire fitting process helps you decide which alterations are needed, which ones may be optional and how they will look. It's fun to see how your gown transforms once it is pinned!
An itemized pricing estimate is calculated and a deposit of one half of the total alterations fee is required at the 1st fitting appointment. The balance of all fees are due when the gown is picked up. Credit cards are accepted. Pricing is determined by the difficulty of the alterations and the time required to complete the gown to each bride's specification and needs.
