All Wedding Dresses Can Be Altered… It’s true

All Wedding Dresses Can Be Altered… It’s true

I often get asked the question “Can this wedding dress be altered?” I tend to see the panic on brides faces when they have bought a wedding dress but realise their body shape has changed and it is now ill-fitting. Because lets face it every bride will have some stress during her wedding planning or go on the ultimate gym and fat busting diet, which as we all know affects every body in different ways!

My answer “YES!”. So far in my career, I have never come across a wedding dress that cannot be altered. If a dress is too small we can add a beautiful lace up back with a modesty panel, which opens the whole back of the dress up for a flexible fit. This is also great for when you have had a little much to bubbly and cake on the day, and you need to loosen the dress to breathe!

Don’t panic if you have found the perfect dress but it’s a tad too big, side seam and bust alterations are common when it comes to wedding dresses, most need a nip or a tuck somewhere!

Even miracles can happen… I once had a lady who bought her perfect wedding dress, it was THE ONE, she had to have it! Although, the despair in her eyes when she put the dress on and the shoes she was planning to wear on the day were 5″, turning her dress into an ANKLE SWINGING HEMLINE! Not a good look ladies! Again, the panic on her face – “It’s impossible” she said. Not for the miracle seamstress! We matched the lace, added to the hem and nobody could ever tell it was once far too short!

At the end of the day it gives me great pleasure to see the brides happy and somewhat relieved face when the wedding dress fits perfect and its ticked off the list as “JOB DONE”.
