Alterations Process                          

First Fitting                                                             

For a bridal gown, we will normally aim to start the fitting process 2 months before the wedding day - however this will differ with bespoke changes.  


Initial fittings include both a consultation about your dress, pinning and costing. It is very important at this appointment to make sure you have all your undergarments and your wedding shoes.


If you are still planning to work on changing your body shape or you still have decisions to make on details of the dress...don't worry...all will be discussed at your fitting and there will still be time. 


Second fitting

Ideally, your second fitting will take place around 3 to 4 weeks before your wedding day. At this stage all alterations will be done but at a stage where they can still be altered if necessary. 


Depending on the final work required, and your preferences, the second fitting tends to be the last one before collection. 



Collection is normally scheduled during the week of the wedding.

Your dress will be freshly steamed, prepped and completely ready for the big day.


Wishing all our brides a very Happy Christmas!
