Avoid Express Charges!
Please don't leave your alterations to the last minute. Instead, book your bridal fitting 3-2 months before your wedding date as we otherwise might need to charge you express fees.

‘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!’ 

Do your outfits need tweaking for autumn/winter? 😎 For D&A clients only, a 20% Discount as a huge thank you! ...

❤️ Before you start the search for your wedding dress and choose your perfect dress, we recommend doing some research and thinking about:

1. The type of wedding you want - is it a wedding in the UK, or are you celebrating abroad? Is it a formal festive or a casual event you plan like a wedding on the beach?

2. What style do you enjoy wearing and what suits your body shape? Buying a dress that works with your body shape will reduce the costs of alterations.

3. A wedding dress can also hold a solid personal statement. Do you want to express a free spirit or prefer a more conventional style? Do you support sustainability. And buying a pre-worn dress is essential for you to express this idea. Some brides choose an heirloom dress to continue a family tradition.

4. Furthermore, one of the very crucial aspects is your budget. Prices for bridal gowns range from £500 - £20.000 plus.

Bridal Alterations - Working towards the best results to fit your wedding dress perfectly! It often takes two fittings to fit your dress, and the third one is your collection appointment.

We start every bridal alteration by ensuring the waistline sits where it is supposed to sit. Depending on the dress style, this can vary. 🪡

💍 However long or short you want to wear your wedding dress, it is your decision. However, the dress length does depend on the style, your shoes and what you feel comfortable wearing on your day.

📌 Our team suggests wearing gowns and long wedding dresses, so they just graze the floor. It allows you to walk confidently to the altar.
