BRIDAL FITTINGS INSIGHT 💡
Depending on the type of dress, bridal fittings can take up longer than two hours. After pinning the alterations at the bodice, we sometimes have to take up eight skirt layers, all of them need to be pinned. To keep alteration costs as low as possible, we suggest only shortening the skirt at the front. Our fitting consultants are here to answer all your questions about how to fit your dress perfectly!

📌 Please remember to bring your shoes and well-fitted undergarments. They will be essential to ensure the best fit for your wedding dress.

BRIDAL FITTINGS 🪡
The fitting consultation is the foundation for the perfect fit of your wedding dress, with the fitter advising you and pinning your dress. The seamstress then executes the bridal alterations to the highest standard. 👏🏻❤️

Our signature is to maintain the original finish, style and proportions as much as possible unless you decide differently. We aim to offer brides options to keep the costs under control, but as many bridal alterations need to be done manually, costs can add up.

🛎 ‘Is it worth having my wedding dress altered?’

🎺 It is more than worth it; it will make all the difference how you feel on the day being on the centre stage and also looking back at the legacy of your wedding day. 💍
