Getting married is so special and exciting that choosing just the right dress is every young ladies dream come true. This is true when choosing a seamstress for altering your dress. You want to be able to feel confident that you have chosen the right person to work on your dream dress and you have come to the right place.

You may find the perfect wedding dress, but the chances that a gown will fit you like a glove are about as great as getting hit by lightning. You may find a wedding dress that causes you to swoon, but it may be too short or too long, or too tight in the hips but too loose in the bust.

If you buy your dress in a boutique or shop specialising in wedding gowns, the shop will probably have an in-house wedding dress alterations service (and will charge you a fortune for using this). However, if you buy your dress from a department store or used, you may have to find a specialist bridal seamstress. Ask friends and family members for advice and recommendations, and look around on the Web. A good place to start is reading the reviews or customer feedback on websites.

If you are buying a dress from abroad (ie China) consider the following: Cheap dress fabric, sizes are NEVER accurate and are usually far too small after being given your measurements, customs duty, then the cost of alterations. Generally it ends up being more expensive than going to a dress shop here in the UK so take this into consideration.

Wedding gowns are different from other clothing: They have boning, beading and bustles. It’s best to work with someone who has extensive experience working on bridal gown alterations.

Once you’ve found someone to alter your wedding dress, make sure to bring the undergarments, shoes, veil and other accessories. Think about the difference between a push-up bra and a corset or a stiletto versus a pump: An inch makes a difference, especially when it comes to fitting a dress.

Alterations take time, and the amount of time depends upon the alterations you need. If you need only the hem worked on or minor adjustments, you don’t need a lot of time, but, if you need the gown reworked, you’ll need more time. For example, if you are trying to lose weight for your wedding, you may not want to bring the dress in too early. If you bring your gown in too late, you risk not having enough time to get the alterations finished so best ring to make an appointment and ask for advice.

Remember that the more alterations you need or want for a dress, the more expensive it will be. Be aware of this when choosing your wedding gown, and know what you are willing to spend when working with a tailor or seamstress. We will proved a detailed quote upon seeing the dress itself but rest assured, you won’t find a better quality bridal alteration service at our value for money prices.

Just let us know what you are unhappy with and we will work with you to produce your perfectly fitting dream garment.
