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.

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.

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 👆🏼
