What Our Clients Say
Hi Marie, I just wanted to write and say thank you for all the time and effort that you put in for making and altering our family dress for my wedding on the 22nd April.
You are so skilled with the handiwork and it looked so perfect on the day – some would say regal! You knew all the right answers to each of the different areas, and you managed to take what was a stored dress to a loved dress – so thank you and well done.
I have attached a photo of the happy couple, so you can see the dress but I had some many compliments and with the 22nd of April being the 120th year of it’s existence – it was even more impressive. So thank you for enabling it to be reinforced, to stay true to the shape and the antique-ness of the dress. Thank you so much and best of luck in the future, Verena

Dear Lorraine and the Bride & Alter team, thank you so much for all of your help, hard work, text messages and compassion working to repair my wedding dress. We were panicked enough, so I can’t even imagine what went on behind the scenes in your workshop! I really can’t thank you enough for coordinating with Anne Barge in the US, sourcing the material and remaking the skirt perfectly from scratch. It was exactly what I wanted it to look like and not only did it receive dozens of compliments, but it also withstood a night full of dancing! Thanks again and please find some pictures attached.

Dear Marie, I cannot thank you enough for all you did to help me achieve my dream dress… not just once but twice! You really did save the day and I don’t know what I would have done without you. I am recommending you to everyone! LoveIsobel Thomas, October 2016
This is just a very quick email to say THANK YOU for making me such a beautiful dress – it was better than hoped it would be, all testament to your skill in translating my ideas into reality and your hard work. Thank you so much.Suzanne Hall, October 2016
I had the best experience with your company! I visited three times with my wedding dress – very hyper and very stressed. Eva was absolutely BRILLIANT and really calmed me down. She knew exactly what would suit me and wasn’t too pushy with her suggestions. I’d recommend her to everyone.Claire Kunzel, September 2016
I would be more than happy to recommend the service I received at Bride and Alter. My dress was made of intricate lace and having bought it off the rack at a sample sale, it was especially difficult to alter. This did not appear to phase Marie in the slightest and I knew I could trust her 100%. On the day, the dress fit perfectly and I could not have been happier with the results.
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for adjusting my wedding dress to the perfect fit! We had an amazing day and the dress got lots of compliments. I’m so grateful especially as it was not the easiest dress to alter!Danuta Grzesik, September 2016
Thanks to the most amazing and genuinely caring team at Bride&Alter my dress was made perfect! They ladies did an amazing job in a very short amount of time only 1 week before my wedding. If it was not for their caring nature and understanding of a difficult situation my day would certainly not have been the same!Andrea Peck, May 2016
First let me say I had an amazing wedding day, but it would not have been possible without the expertise of your Design and Alter team. You transformed my disaster of a dress into an outstanding design piece in such a short period of time. As the Supplier in the USA had made such a massive error and the late arrival of my dress to the UK, l was left with less than a week to correct this grave measuring error. You and your team worked non-stop to produce for me a stunning wedding dress for which I will be forever grateful. You and the team showed compassion and made me feel totally at ease. I would highly recommend your services to others without a shadow of a doubt. Thanks a million!
I wanted to thank you for all you did with my wedding dress. We had an amazing day and I felt a million dollars in my dress and it got so many lovely comments. I thought I’d share a few photos from the day so you can see your handiwork. Thanks so much once again!
I just wanted to send you this short note to thank you for such outstanding work on my suit alterations. It was a big decision to get all 3 suits, some of which were treasured possessions, to go ‘under the knife’ as it were, but I have to say I was simply amazed at the quality of the work and the accuracy of the fit to my rather skinny frame.Jon Slade
Wow, So impressed with the great skill as well as the great service. You are to alterations what Faberge are to eggsNicole Rolet
Every woman should cultivate some version of a dressmaker, whether it’s through her local dry cleaners, or a chi-chi service such as Design & Alter.Lisa Armstrong
Design & Alter made what seemed to be a difficult task effortless; they were enthusiastic, professional, and most importantly exceeded my expectations on service excellence.
Our first team squad were elated with the results of the suits and proud to wear them, and this was thanks to the hard work and dedication of Design & Alter, I would recommend their services to anyone.Zara Barka
