‘Bride & Alter were wonderful – amazing work on my wedding dress and they made the whole process enjoyable and calm. Would highly recommend.’


‘I can’t thank you again for everything you did for me and my dress. It fitted perfectly and made my day even more magical!’ 

How to get your wedding dress ready for it🪡

One option is adding a bustle that holds up your train to enjoy dancing through the night. Depending on the type of dress, we use different types of bustles. Not all heavy dresses can be bustled up. The fabric would not hold the weight.

📌Ask us in your fitting if your dress can have a bustle, or email us following the link in bio 👆🏼
