Bridal Alterations

Hello lovely brides!

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

We recommend that all brides budget £200-£250 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. 


 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 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.
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.
