Wedding Gown Alterations
Brides deserve a little extra attention, so we ask that you schedule an appointment with us so that our seamstresses can spend as much time as necessary with you to make sure your gown will look perfect on your wedding day. Brides can schedule an appointment with us by calling any of our 13 locations.
What to Expect: We recommend scheduling an appointment 6 to 7 weeks before your wedding. Remember to bring your shoes, undergarments and any other items that you will be wearing on the wedding day. Also, we recommend brides bring someone with them to their fittings that will be available to them the day of the wedding. If not for all the fittings, it’s a good idea to have someone with them on the second fitting. We’ll take the time to teach them how to connect the bustle for the day of the wedding. It’s also comforting for the bride to have someone that can help them get into your gown. The fittings are a great time to watch and learn how they can help, and practice if they wish.
Most wedding gown alterations are completed within 3 to 4 visits to Alterations Express (depending on the project and the amount of work that needs to be completed). Your first visit will be an initial consultation and evaluation of the work that needs to be completed. The second visit is a try-on following the initial alterations. We’ll use this visit to assess if any other work needs to be completed on the gown. Finally, you’ll come in to pick up your dress, which will be pressed and/or steamed and ready-to-wear on your wedding day! If the alteration process is more involved there may be a need for additional fittings.
Cost: We unfortunately cannot provide pricing information for wedding gown alterations until our seamstresses can evaluate the project in person. During your initial consultation, we’ll provide you with full pricing information for your gown. However, a typical price range for bridal alterations (depending on the amount of work that needs to be done) is between $200 - $500.
