Bridal Alterations Consultation

We offer consultations to assess your garment and provide you an estimate. At this half hour appointment, you are able to chat with our team to explore all the fit options for your special day and understand how much to budget for your bridal alterations. There is a 50 dollar consultation fee. Should you select our team to be a part of your day the full consultation fee is applied to your alterations total.

We also offer consultations for your bridal party – including bridesmaids, mothers of the bride and groom and flower girls – to help them budget for your special day. If you’re happy with our service and your estimate, we will then book you in for your first fitting with our team!

*These consultations are also available for graduates and prom girls.


First Fitting

On your first fitting, we will pin your dress to assess what needs to be altered. You will need to bring the undergarments and shoes you plan to wear on your special day. If you wear a C-cup or smaller, we offer cups that can be sewn into your dress in place of a bra, for an extra fee. At this fitting, the tailor will book your second fitting.  As far as our payment schedule works, we require a 30% non-refundable deposit at this time and the final balance will be settled at your second fitting. Depending on your dress style, at your first fitting, we can discuss if you would like to move forward with a hoop rental. Hoop rentals require a $50 refundable deposit upon return of the hoop.


Second Fitting

On your second fitting, we recommend bringing someone who can help you get ready on your special day. It’s important to bring someone who our team can train to care for your dress at your wedding. We will teach this person how to bustle the dress, lace-up the corset (if applicable) and also reveal some helpful tips to solve possible dress emergencies. At this fitting, the tailor will book your final visit to pick up your perfectly fit dress!


Third Fitting

Your third fitting is offered to ensure there are no additional tweaks or changes needed for your gown.


Final Visit

On your final visit, you will pick up your altered and steam-cleaned dress and any additional pieces you may have ordered. Our complimentary steam-cleaning is the final touch to ensure your gown is in perfect condition for your special day. *For our destination wedding brides, or brides who may be travelling for the big day, we will show you how to package your gown for travel to ensure a wrinkle-free garment.
