‘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!’ 

Revisiting 2022 - we loved Aislinn’s @aibbank wedding arrangements so much that we occasionally need to review them, showing some of her beautiful wedding photographs.

To polish your bridal look and perfectly align your wedding dress to your body shape.❤️ It makes all the difference! So, this is a reminder to keep a budget for bridal alterations when you plan your wedding.

💡 Most bridal stores offer bridal wear made-to-order and order a wedding dress closest to your dress size.

But only a few of us have a body shape that perfectly fits one size. So, when you collect your dress, you will notice that the dress fits well in some areas but might need to be tighter in others. We align all measurements to make your wedding dress fit you perfectly.

? Are you considering buying a sample dress, a second-hand, a vintage or would like to wear a family heirloom for your wedding? Again, we need to fit the dress on you for it to look perfect.

? What is couture bridal? Couture bridal is made for you and carries your body measurements. Couture is more expensive, and most finishes are done by hand.
