VIP Alterations

FAQs


How long will my dress take?

We advise leaving about three months between your first fitting and your big day (or the date you need to collect your dress). We also offer a faster alteration service. Depending on the time of year (our busiest months are May, June and July), this service is either free or has a 25% express fee.

How many fittings will I need?

We’ll always make sure you’re completely happy with your dress. During your first fitting we’ll schedule your collection appointment, which will allow enough time for a further fitting, if needed.

How do you work out costings?

We price our alterations at £60 per hour. The amount we charge directly relates to how long it takes to complete your dress.

Do I pay fitting fees?

We charge a £60 fitting fee on top of alterations and any material costs. This covers an hour’s fitting, so if your consultation and dress-pinning only takes half an hour, we’ll only charge £30.

What should I bring with me to the fitting?

Bring the undergarments and shoes you’re planning to wear on your wedding day. Even a different pair of shoes with the same heel height may change your hemline!

How far in advance do I need to book?

During our busiest time of year (between May and July), weekends and Wednesday evening appointments are very popular. We advise booking up to four weeks in advance to secure your slot.
