Frequently Asked Questions:
Our brides often ask us about when they should start alterations, pricing, and if certain alterations are possible. Below are a few of our most frequently asked questions. Keep in mind you will be working with a certified pattern maker and design school graduate, thus our timeline and pricing will be different than most typical alterations places. If you don’t see your question below, don’t worry; simply call or email with your questions.
When should I have my dress altered?
The short answer is, when your size and weight are stable. If you are undertaking a diet or weight loss program, we’d advise you to set a goal date for stopping and stabilizing your size and weight, then book your appointment for that time. We require the first appointment to be at least three weeks before the wedding. If your size is very consistent, it would be fine to have your dress altered 3-4 months before the wedding.
How long does it take to get my dress back?
Our turn-around time is 5 days for most typical dress alterations. Careful scheduling, allows us to work on your dress right after your fitting, while all details are still fresh in our memory. To do this turnaround so quickly, we have to be very organized with our appointments. Please make sure you arrive on time and if you need to reschedule, kindly do so as far in advance as possible.
