Bridal Alterations

Almost every wedding dress needs alterations to fit you well unless it is made bespoke.

Most bridal outfits are made to order, which means they are ordered closest to your dress size. This means that the dress fits you but will benefit from adjustments in certain areas to create the perfect silhouette for your body shape.

You will look your absolute best once we have adjusted and aligned your dress to your body measurements.
