Wedding dress alterations

Wedding dress alterations are not something to scrimp on. They are essential for the perfect fit and comfort of the most expensive dress you will probably ever wear.

We do all our own wedding dress alterations with our clever seamstress. Sue has worked with Lara B for nearly 12 years and our little piece of magic behind the scenes.

Sue - seamstress

Alterations are ALWAYS carried out in store by Lara, who is trained and extremely knowledgeable of the alteration process and how garments work on a body. Lara will pin and tuck where needed, with your input on comfort and in the knowledge of what will be needed. Lara then takes the dress to Sue, who works her magic with such a talent.

The costs vary to what needs doing but the below is a guide for your information. Obviously the service is there for all our own brides BUT we also carry out alterations on wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses for anybody. If we can help, we will basically.
