Bridal Alterations

Do you need your dress altering to get that perfect fit? We offer a wide range of alteration services, from hems to taking in or letting out your dress. 

We can also alter bridesmaid dresses, groom's suits and mother of the bride etc.

For wedding dress alterations we ideally would like to see you and your dress a minimum of 2 months before the wedding. We know in some circumstances this can be difficult so please contact us before booking in for an appointment if the timing is much closer.

You will need up to 3 appointments

1st Consultation we will discuss all the changes and fit adjustments that need to be made and pin your dress.

2nd fitting We will check that the adjustments that have been made fit well and whether any further adjustments are needed.

3rd and final fitting, we will double check  that you can walk and sit comfortably in your dress and that you are happy with all the adjustments made.

For all fittings you will need to bring the correct underwear and shoes. Any changes to the bridal underwear that effect the fit during the process will add additional charges. Changes in bodysuits and bras can make a big difference.

Bridesmaid dress alterations

For bridesmaid alterations we need 4-6 weeks before the wedding. You will need to bring shoes and the underwear  intend to be worn on the day. Please book a half hour appointment per 2 bridesmaids.
