Many Wedding Dresses need at least some sort of alteration, but keep in mind that your alteration issues can vary greatly, depending on where you purchased your Wedding Dress and how many changes need to be made.

But if your expectations are in order and you go to the right seamstress,you should be ready for your wedding day with a Wedding Dress that fits flawlessly.

It's important to time your alterations right.
Bring your Wedding Dress in too early, and you might not end up with a proper fit.
(You may lose or gain weight after your gown is altered, which could affect the dress' overall look and fit.)

Bring your Wedding Dress in too late, and you run the risk of not allowing enough time to have all the changes made.

Try allowing two to three months from the time of your first fitting to your last, as an ideal timeline to make all the alterations.

Also keep in mind that the amount of times you need to go for fittings depends on how much you're getting done to the gown -- on average, most brides go for three to four fittings.

When you're ready for alterations, don't just bring your Wedding Dress, also take your undergarments, shoes, and accessories to your fittings as well. ( We have a comprehensive range of Wedding Accessories )

With all of the pieces in place, it'll be easier to envisage your overall wedding day look -- you should have your undergarments and shoes on hand in order to obtain the proper fit and length of your gown, and your hair accessories or veil will help ensure you've got the right balance. ( We are able to provide these Accessories from stock or by next day courier )

If you don't have the exact shoe you'll be wearing, bring something similar in height or we can assist so you don't wind up tripping over your dress on your wedding day.

Who to Bring to Your Wedding Dress Fitting ?

Whilst you might have many bridesmaids, it's not a good idea to bring them all to your fittings.

You might want to have your mum, another trusted relative, or friend accompany you to your fittings, just for another set of eyes and another reliable opinion. And because your maid of honour will need to know how to create the bustle, it's a good idea to bring her to your last fitting so she can learn how your gown works.

Whether you found your gown, at a couture salon or a bridal sample sale, the options for alterations are nearly endless.

Many seamstresses who have worked on Wedding Dresses are used to reworking fabrics, opening up hems, and can practically redesign a dress.

This is particularly common when a bride wants to modernise her mother's gown -- a seamstress can use the same fabric but create an updated style for The Wedding Dress.

In many cases, it depends on the fabric and constitution of The Wedding Dress to determine how difficult an alteration will be.
For example, a silk satin finish on a gown can be difficult to let out, as holes might show.

When she's altering a lace gown, she can work with appliques to cover up alterations, making it sometimes easier to alter this fabric than others. "It's always better to buy a gown bigger than smaller, when it comes to all fabrics, because this gives the tailor the most alteration options.

Keep in mind that the more labour-intensive the request, the more time and money you should allow for the process of creating your dream dress.
