Hello lovely brides!

Our bridal alterations service provides you with the peace of mind that your beautiful dress will fit you to perfection.  

Our super cute fitting room upstairs is by appointment only, ideal for bridal parties as it has plenty of room for family & friends. Kitted out with a full length mirror & everything we need to make your wedding dress a perfect fit. 

 

clothing alterations and repairs 

 

When should I book my bridal alterations? 

Ideally we like to see you 12 weeks before your wedding date to start your alteration process. At this initial appointment we take a look at the work involved, give you an accurate quote and speak about any of the questions you may have.
Please do not be alarmed if you no longer have 12 weeks until your wedding, this is just a guide. Please call us on 01926 863 709 to get booked in. 

Express Alterations Service

We also offer an Express Alterations Service, so that where possible your garment can be taken away within 24 hours*. This is particularly welcomed by clients who have travelled a distance to get to us.
*This service must be booked in advance so please give us a quick call on 01926863709 if you'd like to use our Express Alterations Service. Please note that there is an additional 35% charge added to the standard alterations cost for using this service.
 

 A little advice before your first fitting... 

You will need to bring your shoes* and your bra to your first and all subsequent fittings.
*Please note that we cannot and will not shorten your wedding dress without your shoes. No matter how many tippie toes we see or how many pretty pleases we hear.
We pride ourselves on perfection. 
 We ask that you be sparing with make-up on fitting days and please, no fake tan. You don’t want to run the risk of getting your dress dirty before the big day.
Your fitting appointment usually takes around 30-45 minutes and we respectfully ask that you arrive on time. It’s tricky if you’re late as you will run into another appointment. 
It’s also a good idea to keep guest numbers to a minimum to ensure that we can give you  a valuable fitting appointment. With that being said, we do recommend bringing an honest opinion with you so we can work together to make you look and feel your best. 
If you are bringing bridesmaids etc. along with you for their garments to be altered please ensure you let us know beforehand so we can allocate the time to you. 

We recommend that all brides budget £250 - £300 for standard alterations. Please note that this is a guide only and depending on the alterations required the price could increase/decrease.

We provide an accurate quote once we see you in your dress at your first, no obligation consultation.
