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.

Shopping

  • 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

Timeline

  • 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!

Fitting

  • 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
