To Eva, Martina and all the staff and tailors at Design & Alter. I absolutely loved my dress and it fitted perfectly on the day. I was so comfortable and it was so great to know that you shared my vision for the fit. I left every time feeling confident and at ease that everything would be fine on the day. I can’t thank or recommend you enough. Love Steph & Henry

Hi Eva and Team, I would just like to say a huge thank you for your patience in altering my beautiful dress. It fitted perfectly on the day and I had so many compliments.

Charlie helped me get ready and she was so happy with the changes we had made to her design!

Nick and I had the most beautiful sunny day and were able to have our ceremony outside.  It was all like a dream. With kindest wishes, Alison

The Bride & Alter team are the epitome of professionalism and expertise. From the moment I made my appointment to the day I picked up my tailored wedding dress, I knew I was in good hands. It is with good reason that designers such as Phillipa Lepley recommend this company for any dress alterations. Their shop is warm and comfortable, their consultants efficient and thorough, and their craftsmanship excellent. My sample sale dress required some significant fixes to the lace and they made these alterations perfectly. I couldn’t have felt more comfortable and confident wearing the final piece! I look forward to using their tailoring services for other special pieces.

Bridal client reviews

Design & Alter came highly recommended and I can see why. From my first appointment with Marie, I could tell I was in very good hands. Her professionalism, skill, attention to detail and knowledge were impressive. I took my opportunity to ask any questions I had (not necessarily wedding dress related) as I knew I was in the hands of an expert! I loved my dress before but after alterations, words can’t describe, I just beamed from ear to ear! Thanks so much!

Dear Shannon & Temi, hope you are both well and had a lovely summer. I can’t believe it’s already been 10 weeks since my wedding day! I just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you both so much for giving me the dress of my dreams. Without you I don’t think I’d have had a dress at all. You managed to turn a nightmare situation into an enjoyable experience. You were so lovely and reassuring and I’ m eternally grateful fo all your hard work. As promised here are some photos. Best wishes,

Hello, I just wanted to say such a huge thank you to you for making my wedding dress absolutely perfect. I had my wedding 2 weeks ago on a beautiful sunny day and had the most perfect time. I had SO many amazing comments about my dress and I felt like a princess wearing it. I’m just delighted that it fitted me so perfectly and all of the small details I had asked for were beautifully mended and executed. My dress was transformed from when I brought it to you back in January to be unique and perfect to me, I just can’t thank you enough. Here are a few pictures from the day to show you just how well it fitted! I will be sure to recommend you to anyone needing alterations in the future… the services I received was completely faultless and made me feel very reassured- so key for an anxious bride! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart- you are a talented team! All the best

I had an excellent experience with Marie at Design & Alter. She transformed my wedding dress into my perfect dress. The changes to the dress were quite dramatic but you couldn’t even tell it had been altered and it fit perfectly; professionalism every step of the way. I would absolutely recommend Design & Alter, a 5 star service. 🙂

Dear Marie, I hope you are well and had a good break. Just a quick message to say thank you for all of your help with the fitting of my dress, it looked amazing and everyone loved it! We had such an amazing day and I will find an excuse to wear the dress again even its to hoover around the house! Thank you again.

Dear Temi, I just wanted to write to you to thank you so much for the incredible job you did not just with my gorgeous dress, but with me! You were a dream to work with, and your skills and advice were invaluable! Especially as I came to my appointments alone, you were fantastic! The day all went smoothly and I love the dress so much, I felt amazing and can’t wait for any excuse to wear it again!
