Having a beautifully fitting wedding dress is a simple way to elevate your day. Stop the worries of tripping over a long dress or readjusting constantly, and enjoy your wedding day with the freedom to dance the night away!

We alter all wedding attire, from wedding dresses to wedding party suits and gowns and outfits for the couple's parents. You can also customise your dress with sleeves and straps, and we'd highly recommend adding hidden bustles for the evening so you can enjoy your reception without the train of your dress being stepped on.

For your alterations, you will need a minimum of two fittings in our dedicated studio. We'll discuss the changes during your first fitting and pin them in place. Afterwards, your dress will be left with us to complete the adjustments. You will then return for a second fitting, where you will put your dress back on. If you need some more tweaks, we'll book you for another fitting.

With over 10 years of sewing experience, your dress will be altered to a high standard at an affordable price. If you would like a price estimate for your alterations, please get in touch today! We pride ourselves on our customer service and are more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
