Alterations / Custom Fit Specialist
Alterations are done at the Bridal Connection by a talented and experienced seamstress. It is why we are a full-service bridal salon. It should be expected by the majority of brides and their wedding party, that their dress will require some form of alteration.
The first step to a fit is correct measurements. If you are not able to be measured by a bridal consultant at the Bridal Connection, please find a tailor or bridal/tux shop in your area to ensure proper measurements.
It is important to try on your dress or tux as soon as it arrives in the store.
You should schedule your first fitting six to eight weeks prior to the wear date.
Bridal gowns generally require three fittings. However, if you request custom alterations to your gown, more alterations should be expected. If you are having your dress steamed, an appointment will be made after your final fitting to pick-up.
Bridesmaids generally need two fittings. If you are having your dress steamed, an appointment will be made after your final fitting to pick-up.
Alteration charges vary. Please feel free to call the Bridal Connection to ask any questions or speak with the seamstress before your first fitting.
