Our Guide to Bridal Alterations
We recommend calling us to schedule your first fitting and gown evaluation as soon as you have your dress. Our staff will suggest a first appointment timeline 6-7 weeks prior to your wedding date. During your personalized bridal fitting, our team of bridal experts will spend as much time as necessary with you to make sure your wedding dress fits perfectly for your special day.
Your first bridal fitting with Alterations Express will give our bridal seamstresses the opportunity to hear your thoughts and evaluate the alteration work that will be needed for your precise fit and comfort. (Don’t forget to bring your shoes and undergarments with you to your fittings.)
Your next fitting appointment will give you your first look and try-on experience with your altered dress. This is a time for both you and the seamstress to reevaluate the fit and comfort, and determine if the project is ready for the next phase of work — or if another round of adjustments are needed.
The number of fittings and the cost of the alteration project are predetermined based on the work and structure the seamstress outlines during your first fitting. Once your alterations are completed, we give every detail another look, have your gown freshly steamed or pressed and make sure it is wedding-day-ready for your scheduled pick-up date!
Pro Tip: We also recommend bringing someone with you to your fittings. This person should be accessible to you throughout your wedding day. Bridal fittings are a great time to practice getting into and out of your gown and having our seamstresses teach you how to connect bustles or corsets.
