The fine tuning and magic really do happen in alterations. Just about every dress will need alterations as this dress is like no other, and should fit like no other. Straps, bodice, hem and bustle are the usuals. A qualified wedding seamstress is highly suggestion and preferred.
We do not do alterations but can recommend some seamstresses in the area that have been referred to us by other brides and get great reviews. We suggest you do your independent search to find great ones too. We are not able to give estimates on prices as each seamstress runs their own independent business.
Not local or need additional options? A great place to start then is by asking other friends. Since they have gone through alterations for their wedding dresses, let them recommend good ones from their alteration experiences.
Another referral resource is The Knot and WeddingWire. Both of these are trusted bridal sites. Furthermore, if that doesn’t seem provide good information, then reach back out to us. We have other resources that may be able to connect you in your area,
