Though dresses are ordered based on your measurements, they will likely need alterations of some kind.
At this time, A Bride’s Choice does not have an in-house seamstress.
While we are without a seamstress, we are happy to recommend a few local women who do great alteration work and have experience with wedding dresses. These women create their own schedule and offer their services part time and as needed.
If you are looking for a seamstress, please contact us for their information.
Our advice is to always ask a potential seamstress if they have experience working with a bridal gown within the last 3-5 years. If they have, they should be up to date on the latest trends and materials used.
Timelines will differ with each seamstress but a great rule of thumb to begin wedding dress alteration work is 2-3 months before the event date. For all other work, allowing 3-6 weeks before the event date is sufficient.
Again, timelines will be dependent on the event date and the type of dress or project they are working on.
