"You will always be my greatest adventure" - Up
At the Bridal House we’re proud to have a wonderful seamstress skilled in the alteration of bridal gowns.
What can you expect if you choose the Bridal House for your bridal gown alterations?
Our seamstress only works certain days so we always need you to make an appointment to see her. The appointment will generally take between 30 minutes to an hour depending on how much work is necessary. Generally we would book the initial fitting appointment 8 weeks before your wedding day.
We ask that when you come to your alteration appointment you bring with you the underwear and shoes you plan to wear on your wedding day.
When you arrive we’ll get you into your dress and our seamstress will discuss what you, and she feel needs to be altered. We rely on you to tell us how you feel in your dress, if a strap feels loose, say so we’ll tighten it. We will need to pin the gown as appropriate. On occasion our seamstress may use her experience to recommend against an alteration (usually where she feels it would make a gown too tight and therefore uncomfortable to wear).
Once you are happy with the alteration plan, we can give you a price for the work that needs to be done. A copy of our alteration price list is available by request and will give you a good indication of the potential costs involved.
After the initial appointment our seamstress will take your gown away to complete the alterations and once the gown is returned to us, we’ll get you back to try it again. Sometimes more than one fitting appointment is necessary to ensure a perfect fit for your special day.
Bridesmaid alteration work in the same way as bridal appointments and we are happy to undertake alterations to bridal and bridesmaid gowns alike.
