Bridal Alterations

In – House Bridal Alterations

Our number-one piece of advice we give to all of our clients is to plan (and budget) for alterations. A lot of brides don’t realise that wedding gowns don’t fit like off-the-rack clothes do. Wedding gowns are built according to a size chart that doesn’t match up to a bride’s measurements perfectly. Alterations are required to nip and smooth them out to create a flawless, tailored look.
