When should I schedule the alterations?

Schedule your first bridal alteration 8-12 weeks in advance. This will help you plan around travel, photos, and special dates. We normally like to finalize and finish the alterations 1-3 weeks before the special event day.


What should I bring to the alterations?

Bring ALL undergarments (bustiers, slips, shape-wear, etc.) and SHOES with you to ALL of your bridal fittings. Our experienced seamstresses will also help you select the suitable undergarments and shoes in store to obtain the proper fit.


How many fittings will I need?

Most of wedding dress alterations will need 2-4 fittings. It normally takes about 4-10 weeks for bridal gowns and 2-6 weeks for bridesmaids, mothers, flower girl, or prom dresses. We also offer emergency alterations within one week or a couple of days. Additional rush fees may be charged.


How long will the alterations take?

It normally takes about an hour for the 1st bridal fitting, and about 30 minutes for bridesmaids, moms, flower girls, or dresses for special occasions. The second and third alterations most likely will take less than 30 minutes.


What if I plan on losing weight for the wedding?

We will work with your weight loss plan to time the alterations correctly. Our seamstress will be glad to do some fine tuning to ensure the proper fit on you.


How many sizes can you take it in?

It really depends on the style and designs. In most cases, we are able to take sides in up to 10 sizes.


Should I order a smaller size dress since I have a weight loss plan?

We recommend you to order the dress size according to your current body measurements at time of placing the order. It is always less expensive to take the dress in rather than let it out. More often when the dress comes in too small, you will need to order extra materials and spend more to get it properly fitted.


What should I know at the final fitting?

For brides at the final fitting, you may bring your mom, sister, maid of honor, friends or whoever will help you get dressed on the wedding day. The seamstress will show them how to lace the corset or zip the dress properly, how to bustle the train and all other details to ensure the stunning look on your wedding day.


How do you accommodate customers who live out of town or a distance from you?

We provide short-period services for our customers who live out of town or a distance from us. Just inform the store when you will be in town and we will arrange to start and complete your alterations according to your traveling plan.
