Fit is Everything!
No matter your wedding gown – previously loved or high end label – unless it has been properly fitted for you, it will not look or feel like the dream dress that you’ve always imagined.
Below, we’ve put together a few basic tips to keep in mind while in pursuit of the perfect dress. These will also help with your fitting and alterations.
- alterations should be considered as part of your wedding gown budget just like accessories and foundation garments
- it is easier to take in a larger size than it is to let out a smaller size
- bridal gowns are sized smaller than street clothes and different labels can also have their own sizing chart
- if ordering online, be sure you know the exact measurements of the gown
- plan for the amount of time you feel it’s going to take to find ‘the dress’
- depending on where you buy, there could be considerable lead time for ordering / shipping
- consider how complex your alteration needs are – minor fix or major restyle?
- no bride needs more stress – get in touch with us early to plan ahead!
- expect at least two to three fittings for standard alterations
- ensure you bring the foundation garments and shoes you will be wearing
- make sure you are comfortable in your gown – walking, sitting, dancing!
- your final fitting shouldn’t be too far ahead but do allow time for any last minute needs
