We offer an in house alterations service to both our brides and others so even if you haven’t bought your wedding dress or bridesmaid dresses with us we are more than happy to undertake any alterations required to your dress. We price every dress individually based on the construction of the dress and the type of alteration required therefore until we physically see each dress on our bride we are unable to give an exact price. It is vitally important that when attending each fitting you bring your shoes with you if the hem requires alteration.
How the pricing works
We will price the alterations upon your first fitting with us, at which point we will require 50% of the balance, with the remainder due upon collection. Should any additional alterations be required or any changes in weight occur after the first fitting that mean further alterations are required, these alterations will be charged additionally to the original quote. Typically most brides require 2-3 fittings with us including collection. We advise that alterations are undertaken no sooner than 8-12 weeks prior to your wedding in order to ensure a perfect fit and to allow enough time for all your alterations to be completed.
Should you wish to have a consultation with us prior to your first fitting we are happy to talk through alterations with you but these are charged at £20 for the appointment.
We can also offer rush appointments if you require your wedding dress in under 4 weeks however, there is an additional rush fee unless in exceptional circumstances.
