Design with Piece of Mind

Here’re three reasons why it always pays to allow plenty of time for your alterations:

  1. Skilled wedding seamstresses/tailors book out well in advance.
  2. Bridal alteration specialists can add anywhere from 25% to 100% to your cost of alterations to cover the extra work they may need to do to priorities your dress and to get it back to you in time.
  3. The most important reason is…peace of mind. Your wedding day is immeasurably important.

Consider how an unexpected issue may affect your timeline. What if a bridal party member is unable to attend a fitting when originally planned? Good planning will allow some contingency for issues, and will ensure you enjoy every moment of the process – and breeze through to your wedding day stress-free!

It’s best to allow at least 8 to 10 weeks before the big day for any alterations. This will also provide time for final pressing or cleaning which may be needed after fittings. By meeting with your  seamstress/tailor early on you’ll avoid the need for any expensive ‘rush services’ later on.
