After 6 months of dress shopping at EVERY boutique in the NYC area, I amazingly found my dream dress at David’s Bridal! That said, it LOOKED like a couture piece from a much higher end store (a trumpet shape with all over beading and lace and buttons and ruffles on the skirt), and when I had first asked the seamstress at DB about alterations, she cocked her head to the side and said she’d never done that dress and started suggesting the weirdest looking bustle. NOPE. I knew I had to look elsewhere for my alterations on this particular dress. I’m so glad I did my research because Susan was AMAZING. I was instantly drawn to the fact that she has a costuming/theatre background (I’m a performer myself and if a wedding dress isn’t a “costume” I don’t know what is!) and I knew I’d be in good hands with her work. I was able to make an appointment on relatively short notice about 6 weeks out with Susan who was sweet and extremely professional and has an amazing eye for detail. She double checked and even redid the work of some of her assistants to make sure it was just right (again, my dress was super complicated) and explained each alteration she would be making for financial transparency. At my first appointment I was a bit nervous with all of the pinning and whatnot on such a fancy dress (she even convinced me not to wear Spanx because it added an extra layer of fabric that the dress might gather on to make bulges… who knew?!), but when I came in for my second fitting IT FIT LIKE A GLOVE. I already looked like a million bucks and I didn’t want to take it off. We adjusted the hem and straps a little bit more and added some cups, and by the time I left my third appointment it was absolutely perfect. A huge shoutout to her hardworking team as apparently the skirt was a particular beast to hem (again, scalloped ruffles), but it was GORGEOUS and I am still getting compliments on the dress (and how amazing I looked IN IT). Thank you Susan and everyone at the Wedding Dresser!

Lovvveeedddd the way my dress fit me! I was suppose to be married in Puerto Rico in November 2017, but didn't because of Hurricane Maria. I went for my first wedding fitting in September 2017, a few days after the hurricane. I didn't know if we were to still marry at that time. Susan was very understanding and said she would hold my dress until everything settle down. I ended up cancelling and rescheduling my wedding four months later in Brooklyn. Susan even gave me advice on where to look for a venue. She honored the prices from 2017 and still gave me my three dress fittings. I had lost 13 pounds and went down a few dress sizes. My dress was big on me and had to be taken in. Fast forward to my last fitting -My dress was perfect! I loved it. It fit me like a glove! Everyone at Wedding Dresser was professional and accommodating. I will have to come back and post my professional pictures and more details of my dress!

Susan and her team are amazing! From the minute I met her I knew I was in the right place. She listened to my ideas and offered her insight, ideas and suggestions and they were greatly appreciated and valued! Her entire team is amazing, professional and truly gifted at what they do! After our initial meeting- I had no doubts or concerns that I was in great hands and that my dress would be altered perfectly. Every appointment I went to was seamless and amazing and I was never rushed at any appointment. I am so glad to have found this amazing place and team... thank you!!!
