    Amazing Work!

    The team at Altered for the Altar are truly amazing! From calling to schedule my first fitting to taking home my dress, the process was seamless! EVERY employee I interacted with was friendly, professional, and genuinely excited for my Wedding Day. Between my first fitting and my last fitting, I lost over 25lbs. They made sure I felt comfortable and looked amazing on my Big Day! My Fiancé (now Husband) cried the moment he saw me walk into the Chapel and whispered that my dress looked perfect. I have Altered for the Altar to thank for that moment!

    Best experience ever!

    After picking up my dress at A&be, I knew that I wanted to get my Rue dress altered at "Altered by the Alter". I have heard many great things about their alterations and didn't want to go anywhere else. We drove all the way from Tulsa to do our three fittings and they made the experience perfect. I cannot recommend them enough!
