    I felt like Beyoncé

    Thank you so much to the awesome ladies at the Dress Doctor! I bought my dress at a sample sale store and absolutely fell in love with a Atelier Pronovias dress... but it was wayyy too big. I’m normally a 2 in the waist, 8 in the hips and the dress I bought was a size 14!! I guess you could say that I REALLY wanted that dress. So I took it over to the ladies at the Dress Doctor and they literally worked magic to tailor the dress exactly to me! By the time I came out of the salon, I felt like Beyoncé! They had so many great ideas of how to alter the dress and customize it to my needs. They even put small jewels that I purchased and fixed them to my wedding shoes for extra sparkle free of charge. We quite literally took the whole back appliqué of the dress apart and reconfigured it to my perfect dress. Thanks so much!!

    Quality work

    The Dress Doctor is the definition of professional--the are knowledgable in their trade, prompt and efficient. I took my dress there which was a relatively simple silhouette but backless and the front was laying completed wrong--my tailor was able to put a few seams in and then it was absolutely perfect! They were on the higher end in terms of price, but 100% worth it! They had a good turnaround time also. Would highly recommend for important pieces!

    Great Experience!

    I could not recommend The Dress Doctor more. I had an amazing experience here. I was listened to, they did as many appointments as needed and everything was easy. Everyone I worked with was incredibly kind. Would recommend to anyone!
