💡 Dresses can be altered and restyled, but the fundamental structure of a dress shouldn’t be changed.

Make sure you love the style of wedding dress you buy, and it works well with your body shape. ❤️

✂️ Opening seams is a huge part of bridal alterations to maintain the original look, style and proportions; especially important if you want to sell your dress after your wedding. We offer a high quality bridal alterations service.

👰🏻‍♀️ Many brides try to lose weight before their wedding to look even more beautiful on their special day.

💡Remember that your body shape must stay the same once we start the alteration process to avoid repetitive alterations and keep alteration costs within budget.

How long should my wedding dress be?

We will suggest that long bridal wear should just about touch the floor. But ultimately, the length of your bridal wear is your personal choice. ❤️🪡

BRIDAL FITTINGS & ALTERATIONS
💡💡 Please don’t leave your bridal alterations to the very last minute! The bridal season has started, and we are getting very busy.

Book your bridal consultation two to three months before your wedding. If we need to alter your dress less than four weeks before your wedding, we need to charge you express charges. These are avoidable charges.

We look forward to seeing you. ❤️

Would you like to wear your dress after the wedding? Vampire’s wife dresses are a cool alternative to traditional bridal styles and definitely make a fantastic party dress. ❤️

LOVE YOUR DRESS❤️

The wedding was supposed to be two years ago. It seems a long time ago since you bought your wedding dress. Why did you choose this one over others?

💡Remind yourself what you liked about your dress and the look you had in mind. Then, embrace it and fall in love again.

If you can’t, it might be worth thinking about alternatives. One could be to restyle your dress or add exciting accessories. Another option is to sell it and buy a bridal style you love now.

Do you need support and advice from our expert team. Please contact us via email. Follow👆🏼🔗 in bio!

Passionate about bridal! ❤️

Katie is one of our experienced fitters who also works as a seamstress in the workroom.

💡 Bridal fitters need to know all about the construction of the different wedding dresses to give trusted advice to brides to make the right decisions for their bridal looks.

📌 Did we tell you that @brideandalter offers a 25% discount on the alterations of your bridal party? Because we want to make sure that all guests, particularly those who stand in the first row, have well-fitted clothes to look their best. 📸

💡 Before you come to your first bridal fitting, make sure you buy your shoes and undergarments. We need them to ensure the best fit and apply the correct length. For challenging underwear solutions like illusion and dresses with a low back line, we recommend @thepantryunderwear in Islington. You can always contact us if you need more information.

In the appointment, our experienced and knowledgeable fitter will pin and advise you on bridal alterations. We will answer all your questions about your bridal look. We offer a small but beautiful collection of veils, capes and bridal accessories and can tailor individual pieces complementing your wedding dress.

At the end of the consultation, we provide you with a cost estimate. We discuss options to keep alteration costs under control. Are you happy to go ahead with the alterations? We take a 50% deposit payment. Most bridal gowns are ready for collection in the second or third fitting. We steam and pack your dress to be ready for your special day. 👰🏻❤️
