For best fitting results, we recommend a minimum of 3 weeks and a maximum of 8 weeks for all wedding gown alterations. This time frame allows our master seamstresses to accommodate multiple fittings and ensures adjustments can be made without significant changes in your body shape. While we may accommodate alterations in less than 4 weeks please be aware that rush fees may apply, determined by our master seamstresses and alterations coordinator.


You can schedule your initial fitting with us via email ( The alteration process typically involves two fittings which are a duration of 1 hour. During the first fitting, we will pin your gown and discuss the required alterations. At the second fitting, your gown's fit will be fine tuned, without any fabric being cut. We'll continue to refine the adjustments until they're just right. Following this, we'll press, steam, and carefully package your dress for easy pick-up! 


We have a two guest policy at our salon. We recommend bringing a family member or friend to your second fitting to learn and take video of your bustle to be ready for the big day!


Our pricing structure takes into account the complexity of alterations required, as well as the design and construction of the dress. To offer you an estimate, kindly share photos or a link to an image of the dress, the designer and style name, as well as any special modifications you envision. It's important to note that the ultimate price will be confirmed during your initial fitting session with your dedicated master seamstress. Alterations range from $1200+.
