Schedule A Private Fitting
We suggest calling one of our locations to schedule your wedding dress alterations as soon as your receive your gown. But, we won’t schedule your first fitting with us until about 6 to 8 weeks before their wedding day.
What You’ll Need to Bring
Brides: Remember to bring the undergarments and shoes that you’ll be wearing with your dress to all of your scheduled fittings. These items are essential for our seamstresses to get the perfect fit for your gown. We also recommend that you bring someone with you to your scheduled alteration appointments. This person should be accessible to you on your wedding day, both before and during your ceremony and reception. Our seamstresses will take the time to teach your support person how to connect bustles or corsets, how to help you in and out of your gown, and even give you tips for using the ladies’ room.
Multiple Fittings & Timeline
Wedding dress alterations usually take 3 to 4 fittings to complete. However, depending on the complexity of the alteration project, it could require more appointments to complete the work. Our seamstresses will schedule your final fitting no more than a week before your wedding day to ensure that the dress fits perfectly.
