I would just like to say a massive thank you so much for altering my wedding dress at such short notice! You were amazing, working within such a short time span and having to change the appointment due to successive lockdowns! The professionalism of your staff and the safe yet fun atmosphere you created really helped me start getting excited about my wedding again!

bridal alterations

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,

bridal alterations

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 and 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 and alter 5 star service 🙂

Hi Temi,  How are you? I hope all’s well! We’ve received the photos from our wedding now, so I just wanted to send some of the dress and skirt over to you showing what a fantastic job you guys did! They both fit perfectly, and the straps at the back were spot on. Thank you so much!

I had an AMAZING day… and I can’t tell you how many people told me that it was the best dress they’d ever seen …. yay!! Down to you ladies, thank you thank you xxxX

Hi Marie, I just wanted to write and say thank you for all the time and effort that you put in for making and altering our family dress for my wedding on the 22nd April.

You are so skilled with the handiwork and it looked so perfect on the day – some would say regal! You knew all the right answers to each of the different areas, and you managed to take what was a stored dress to a loved dress – so thank you and well done.

I have attached a photo of the happy couple, so you can see the dress but I had some many compliments and with the 22nd of April being the 120th year of it’s existence – it was even more impressive. So thank you for enabling it to be reinforced, to stay true to the shape and the antique-ness of the dress. Thank you so much and best of luck in the future.

Dear Lorraine and the Bride & Alter team, thank you so much for all of your help, hard work, text messages and compassion working to repair my wedding dress. We were panicked enough, so I can’t even imagine what went on behind the scenes in your workshop! I really can’t thank you enough for coordinating with Anne Barge in the US, sourcing the material and remaking the skirt perfectly from scratch. It was exactly what I wanted it to look like and not only did it receive dozens of compliments, but it also withstood a night full of dancing! Thanks again and please find some pictures attached. 

Jessica Blum, February 2017

Hi Amanda, just wanted to say a huge thank you to you. My suit looked incredible on the day and everyone was so so impressed and asking me where I’d had it done.
It made my day that even little bit more special because I felt fantastic in it. You are a very talented lady, and I will be returning in the not to distant future – amazing. Thank you so so much.

Hi Temi, I just wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thank you for altering and finishing off my perfect wedding dress, which I finally got to wear on Saturday! Everyone commented on it and I completely adored wearing it. Many thanks again.

Alison Dougal, December 2016



Dear Marie, I cannot thank you enough for all you did to help me achieve my dream dress… not just once but twice! You really did save the day and I don’t know what I would have done without you. I am recommending you to everyone! Love

This is just a very quick email to say THANK YOU for making me such a beautiful dress – it was better than hoped it would be, all testament to your skill in translating my ideas into reality and your hard work. Thank you so much.

Suzanne Hall, October 2016

Bridal AlterationsI would be more than happy to recommend the service I received at Bride and Alter. My dress was made of intricate lace and having bought it off the rack at a sample sale, it was especially difficult to alter. This did not appear to phase Marie in the slightest and I knew I could trust her 100%. On the day, the dress fit perfectly and I could not have been happier with the results. 

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for adjusting my wedding dress to the perfect fit! We had an amazing day and the dress got lots of compliments. I’m so grateful especially as it was not the easiest dress to alter!

Danuta Grzesik, September 2016

Bridal Alterations




Thanks to the most amazing and genuinely caring team at Bride&Alter my dress was made perfect! They ladies did an amazing job in a very short amount of time only 1 week before my wedding. If it was not for their caring nature and understanding of a difficult situation my day would certainly not have been the same!

First let me say I had an amazing wedding day, but it would not have been possible without the expertise  of your Design and Alter team. You transformed my disaster of a dress into an outstanding design piece in such a short period of time.  As the Supplier in the USA had made such a massive error and the late arrival of my dress to the UK, l was left with less than a week to correct this grave measuring error.  You and your team worked non-stop to produce for me a stunning wedding dress for which I will be forever grateful. You and the team showed compassion and made me feel totally at ease. I would highly recommend your services to others without a shadow of a doubt. Thanks a million!
