Professional Bridal Alterations

You've chosen your gown, but it's not quite the perfect fit...

Almost all wedding gowns will need at least some sort of alteration, but keep in mind that your alterations can vary greatly, depending on where you got your gown and how many changes need to be made. But if your expectations are in order and you go to the right seamstress or tailor, you should be ready for your wedding day with a gown that fits flawlessly.

Timing Is Everything

It's important to time your alterations right. Bring your gown in too early, and you might not end up with a proper fit. The dressmaker recommends allowing two to three months from the time of your first fitting to your last, as an ideal timeline to make all the modifications to you gown. Also keep in mind that the number of times you need to go for fittings of course this depends on how much you're getting done to your gown -- on average, most brides go for three to four fittings.
