I offer professional Wedding Dress Alterations for all outfits in the bridal party (including Mother of the Bride and bridesmaids). During your consultation at my studio in Cambridge (I can also travel for a small fee) I will take the time to listen to your concerns about your wedding dress. We’ll discuss what doesn’t fit and why as well as discuss how I can alter and correct your dress. I will also roughly estimate costs for your wedding dress alterations, so that you can decide whether you want to go forward with my service.
If you’re interested in my alterations service, the first step is to contact me via email or via my contact page. In your email please describe your wedding dress and what kind of wedding dress alterations you need. Any images you can attach to the email will also be really helpful. This will enable me to give a very rough estimate for the work that needs to be done. If the estimate is within your budget and time-frame, we can then schedule a consultation (the first consultation is always free and lasts up to 60 minutes). During the consultation, we will discuss in more detail your wedding dress alterations and I can measure your body in order to fit and alter your wedding dress accordingly.
Following the consultation for wedding dress alterations and your approval of the cost, I will then book you into my production schedule. We will arrange a date for a fitting in my studio in Cambridge (if needed and depending on the type of wedding dress alterations) so that I can check everything fits as required.
With regard to cost, it’s very difficult to offer a flat figure as alterations differ from wedding dress to wedding dress, however, typically my wedding dress alterations service starts from £150. Please, note my costs are based on the time/labour it takes me to do your alterations rather than a specific job such as hems etc. This is because one wedding dress that needs its hem shortening may have several layers of fabric, whereas another dress may just have two layers. Therefore, it’s impossible to give flat figures for wedding dress alterations until I see your dress in our consultation.
If you’re at all unsure about what would be involved in your wedding dress alterations, please don’t hesitate to contact me to arrange a friendly chat.
